Burgers in NE or Uptown Mpls for college recruit
Friend is bringing his son to Mpls area to visit colleges. looking for a fun, but nice, burger place in NE Mpls or Uptown area. Any great burger place to suggest?
Yeah, in NE - Whitey's and NE Bulldog on Hennepin make a pretty good burger, not great though. Same with Mac's Industrial on Central.
Not sure about Uptown.
Downtown probably has the best burgers between 112, Lurcat, LBV Lounge, Solera, Morton's, Ike's (under debate but not by me) and Vincent (under debate) but these places are all fancy and stuff, not sure if that is what you're into.
I like Annie's in Dinkytown as well. Not sure if you are touring the U, but if you are, this is a great spot.
The best burger I've had in those areas is the Bulldog NE. Catch them on a good day, and the burgers are outstanding. A little farther afield, Town Talk Diner on East Lake Street also has excellent burgers. Both meet your criteria of fun but nice.
