Sometimes, you just need a burger.
Luckily, I know where to get the best one in the Twin Cities.
It’s far far away down a dark and winding road in Eden Prairie. There are scenes involving mallards all over the walls. It’s dingy. it’s kind of even spooky. And it is absolutely glorious.
Welcome to Lion’s Tap.
Mike has a running joke with the waiter where he tries to order 21 hotdogs to go. Both Mike and the waiter find it hilarious given there are no hotdogs on the menu. At Lion’s Tap, you can order hamburgers, cheeseburgers, fries and beer, but nothing else.
These burgers are legendary – juicy, onion-y and packed full of flavor. Also, they’re real cheap. $3.30 for a single burger, or $3.95 for a cheeseburger. Plus, you can find $1.00 off coupons, making this the best deal on the planet for an excellent burger.
It’s best to go to Lion’s tap during the day in the summer. There is a fresh water spring nearby where we always stop for some metallic tasting water and “wood chip races.” Basically, you throw wood chips in the creek and wait to see who wins. Endless entertainment!
Even now, at night and when it’s starting to get cold, Lion’s Tap doesn’t disappoint. I promise it’ll be worth the drive.
Until We Eat Again,
