4.0 out of 5.0 stars

Technically, I know it’s not a burger, but it has a fresh beef patty and it is unlike anything I’ve had before.  Oh, it was really good too!

Located across the river from Winona, this is a cool place with a patio overlooking the Mississippi River.  They have a few burger choices, but when I read about this one, that’s what I wanted!

This burger is in a bowl.  It’s an open-faced burger.  I know!  Stick with me.  On the bottom, is a thick slice of garlic Texas toast.  Next is the beef patty and it’s beer battered.

Next, it’s topped with hash browns, caramelized onions, sautéed mushrooms and American cheese.  They are not finished!  Delicious brown gravy is poured over everything.  You could even consider this a Hot Dish Burger, and us Minnesotans love our hot dish!

I loved eating this and the overall experience was a lot of fun.  I even took it out of the bowl and took a few bites like a regular burger.  It was hotter than heck, but I did it.

I think I might go back this summer, sit on the patio and dominate another one of these delicious creations!

Fries – Good.

The Log Jam – Very good!

Spotted Cow – Very good!
