Burgers have been selling across the world with an increased ferocity over the past five years, and their popularity isn’t showing signs of slowing down. St Paul is the place to go in Minnesota for the discerning burger aficionado – we check out the 10 best burgers in the region.
Sweeney’s Saloon places ‘having a good time’ on an equal footing with ‘having great quality food’. It is a neighborhood saloon which is packed nightly, on account of having one of the best atmospheres in town. The beef burgers are all a half pound of Certified Angus Beef, with vegetarian, bison and turkey burgers as alternative options. You can build your own burger or choose from their house specials, with flavors coming from Greece, the South and Dale Street, with this local burger and the Hangover Burger being the prime choice among locals.

Ward 6 has a turn of the century charm. The burgers come courtesy of Peterson Limousin Farms beef, and there’s the option of plain, with cheese, vegetarian, or, for those with a bigger appetite, opt for the Fatty Melt: the love child of a grilled cheese and a burger, with bacon. Neighborhood food made with drinking in mind, whether that’s with a beer or to cure hangover.
