This Ultimate Burger Bucket List In Minnesota Will Make Your Mouth Water

Posted in Minnesota October 10, 2016 by Betsy

It’s pretty easy to find a good burger around these parts. Nearly every town has a restaurant that serves up tasty hamburgers. But finding a great burger – that’s something that takes a little bit more effort. Luckily, you don’t need to put in any effort at all. Here are Minnesota’s greatest, most mouth-watering burgers for you to add to your bucket list.

1. Red Cow (Minneapolis and St. Paul)

Red Cow has become a well-known burger joint with locations in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Their gourmet burgers are handcrafted and are topped with fresh, unique ingredients. Red Cow's Double Barrel Burger won the 2016 Twin Cities Burger Battle.

Luke Shimp knocked it out of the park with his Red Cow burger concept, so he’s sticking with the lucky color for his newest restaurant.

Shimp’s forthcoming North Loop restaurant will be called Red Rabbit and serve pizzas, pastas, oysters and salads. He’s partnering with former Parella Chef Todd McDonald on the project at 201 Washington Ave. N., a former auto shop.

A three-season garden patio called The Greenhouse behind the building will serve cocktails by bar man Ian Lowther, according to a news release.

Shimp said Red Rabbit will open this fall. The former NASCAR mechanic launched Red Cow in Southwest Minneapolis in 2013 and has since added locations in the North Loop and St. Paul’s Cathedral Hill.

Red Cow also has two stands at Target Field and recently won the Twin Cities Burger Battle.
