Red Cow - North Loop
Yelp Stars: 4.5 | Reviews: 492 | Miles from U.S. Bank Stadium: 0.8
Sample Yelp Review: "It was my first visit to Red Cow so I decided to go for the award winning, Double Barrel burger. It was juicy and I loved the amount of melty, creamy cheese. I asked for the sauce on the side after the server said it contained horseradish, which I am not a huge fan of. My plate came out with the two sauces I ordered plus a BBQ sauce. I am a condiment lover so this made me extra happy! The fries were average. I didn't eat many as the burger stole the show." (—Chelsey H.)

Sample Yelp Review: "I had a pint of the Summit Brewing seasonal and went for the Ham & Pear Crisp Sandwich with a side of tater tots. So good. The website menu description says it all: " Featured in "50 Best Sandwiches in America." Shaved, slow-roasted smoked pit ham, poached pears, melted Swiss and Fontina cheese on spicy-sweet buttered & grilled sourdough bread.". It was fantastic. Their homemade ketchup was amazing for dipping the perfectly crispy tots, although their homemade hot sauce lacked any sort of heat which was a tad odd for a sauce named "Bottled Hell" made at a place called "Hells Kitchen". Great service, cool spot, good food. What more do you want?" (—Blair Y.)
The Blue Door Pub
1514 Como Ave SE Minneapolis, MN 55414
Yelp Stars: 4 | Reviews: 104 | Miles from U.S. Bank Stadium: 1.7
Sample Yelp Review: "Blue Door is definitely my favorite burger place in the Twin Cities so far. This location is a perfect place to go to if you're tailgating for a game at the U, or are looking to get a bit outside of Dinkytown for some good food. I would definitely recommend getting the Cajun Tots as a side with your burger, as they are way better then their fries." (—Kyle F.)
