Once every two years (literally) we head down to Minneapolis to a little whole in the wall burger bar.
The place is tiny. The menu is short. You often have to wait in a long awkward line by the door to get a table. But it is true burger joint perfection!
Craft beer hunting use to be mine and Dan’s thing when we were living in California. We were in the land of hops, and loved to track down microbreweries. And while hunting for the perfectly hoppy beer, we often found ourselves also hunting for the perfectly crafted bar burger, which in Cali, there are many.
Eventually beer hunting no longer became our thing, but our love for an amazing bar burger has remained.
Dan in particular has a love for bar burgers, and in Minneapolis no burger compares to the perfection that is a Juicy Lucy from Matt’s. It is by far his favorite. And with his birthday falling around the baby’s due date, we used the uncertainty of the next few weeks as an excuse to start the birthday celebration early!
So celebrate we did with overflowing baskets of perfectly crispy fries, and oozing cheesy Juicy Lucy goodness.
Is all Dan wants for his birthday this year is to hit up his favorite Twin Cities eateries, and the Juicy Lucy served as the perfect way to begin the feast!
