As May heralds in warm weather and outdoor gatherings from graduation parties and weddings, to corporate team builders and lunch meetings, grills fire up across the nation piled with hotdogs, brats, veggies, and of course a good hamburger.
May is National Hamburger Month with National Hamburger Day being this Saturday, May 28, 2016, so lets look at a few great burger joints that can be found in the Midwest that are ready to serve up spectacular burgers and superb atmosphere.
Providing gourmet burgers with locally sourced ingredients in a casual environment, The Burger Stand at the Casbah has been voted best burger in Lawrence 4 years in a row. With the capability to host up to 50 guests, the Beer Hall in the basement of the Casbah is a great space for private gatherings.
Heck’s Cafe, Ohio City, OH
Just across the river from downtown Cleveland you’ll discover the quaint 120-year-old red brick townhouse that is now a gourmet burger eatery. This ‘Cleveland Classic’ boasts a delightful menu with indoor, al fresco, and atrium seating. Heck’s also offers private dining rooms with a bar able to entertain up to 100 guests.
Red Cow St. Paul - Cathedral Hill, St. Paul, MN
This location has a neighborhood feel with a classy twist and gourmet burgers, including non conventional burger delights. For those who may not enjoy the beef variety, Red Cow offers a spicy Ahi tuna burger, as well as burgers in the turkey, lamb, and veggie varieties. Though they don’t officially have ‘event space,’ your small group could enjoy an after event bite and beverage or lunch meeting in this comfortable location.
