All through Central Minnesota there are so many places to get an incredible burger.  Like Hazelwood Food and Drink in Bloomington.  They say you'll need both hands to tackle one of their Iowa Black Angus Burgers.  Like this Blackberry Brie that has bacon, cheese curds and more on it.

If you love the molten cheese inside your burger you may argue over which is better; Matt's Bar's Jucy Lucy or the 5-8 Club's Juicy Lucy.

But there is a Hamburger joint in Eden Prairie that got its start as a roadside vegetable stand in the 1930s. The couple who managed the stand started pouring beer, and the place gradually turned into a friendly neighborhood tavern. Now it may be Minnesota's best kept secret for Award-winning Hamburgers.
