4.0 out of 5.0 stars

Congratulations to Mahtomedi High School on their first Minnesota State Boys High School Hockey Championship!  I’ve got an idea where Mahtomedi’s favorite son, Tommy Olson, former Gopher Football Star & current KFAN Power Trip Contributor, might have celebrated.

A great place to kick back, relax, have a drink and some great scratch-made food.  There were so many things on the menu I wanted to try, like their wings, grilled cheese, poutine, the pork belly blt and the beer braised short ribs.  I also wanted a burger, and their signature Tavern Burger seemed like a great choice.

The hand-crafted beef patty is flame broiled, hit my temp, was seasoned ok and was pretty juicy.  American cheese is the choice.  Melt it a little more for me, please.  Under the patty, you get a tomato slice and some chopped lettuce, which is bathing in their delicious wildwood sauce.  There is some of that sauce on top of the burger, but I added a little more.  The pickles are great.  The bun is soft, lightly toasted and very good.  It has that little crunchy ring around it.  Get a side of the Wildwood sauce for their house cut fries.  Check out their house made tater tots.  If you make your own tots, I’m ordering tots!

The Wildwood Tavern is a great option in the northeast part of the Twin Cities.

Hand Cut Fries – Very good!

Tater Tots – Very good!
