4.0 out of 5.0 stars

Since the Minnesota State Fair is my favorite event of the year, I wanted to let you know that they actually have a really good burger.  I’ve been asked many times “is there a good burger at the State Fair”? I didn’t have an answer.  How embarrassing being a so called “burger guy”.  Well, I now have an answer.

When you think of the State Fair, you probably think deep fried everything and not about burgers of any kind like I did.  Maybe we should put this burger on our list.

It’s the Wild Rice Cheeseburger located in the Food Building at Wild Rice Specialties.  Wild Rice is mixed in with the beef and it tastes delicious!  It has a toasty, nutty flavor and is surprisingly juicy.  I loved the grilled onions as an addition.  Their texture and taste were spot on.  The bun is simple, but soft, and a great match for the burger.  Get the delicious chipotle sauce to add a nice little kick to the burger experience.  After a few bites I swiped some of that on the bun and it really did kick it up a notch.  If you need a break from deep fried everything, head to the Food Building for the Wild Rice Cheeseburger.  I really like this burger!

Thank you, Minnesota State Fair for being so awesome!
