ST. PAUL, MN - The ideal burger epitomizes the Midwest and America, and Saint Paul is the epicenter of superb burgers. Here, you'll find something for every palate: from slender sandwiches to gigantic feasts that will require some effort to fit into your mouth. Please keep in mind that this list is only the beginning of your burger exploration journey.

1) Bennetts's

Bennett's is a classic supper club in the city. The drinks are cold, the beer bottles land swiftly, and the burger is fantastic. Get the simple bacon cheeseburger with grill char, one melty piece of American cheese, and two crisscrossed slices of crispy bacon. Thursday Burger: It's no surprise that a steakhouse also serves a great burger.

2) Brunson's Pub

Brunson's Pub on the Eastside makes burger history with the No Payne No Gain burger. A thick burger topped with American and blue cheese, luscious onion jam, and pulled bacon. Braised pork belly is shredded on top. Every flavor is crammed onto a mushy bun. Order it with house-made chips and dipping sauce. They won't judge you if you stuffed a few crunchy chips into your burger.

3) Burger Dive at Bay Street

Besides great burgers, Saint Paul boasts plenty of affordable local bars. Hamburger Dive is a chef-owned burger pop-up and the Bay Street bar on Randolph, a few blocks from West 7th.

4) Chip's Clubhouse

Tara Coleman's new Chip's Clubhouse is located on Snelling Avenue near Macalester College. Coleman also owns the delightful pie and biscuit cafe next door. The restaurant is excellent for supper club-style food, beverages, and service, but the burger is the menu's star. It's a simple patty topped with a clove of killer garlic, mustard, and mayo sauce. It's pure perfection.

5) ESB | East Side Bar

A bustling tavern with outstanding food, notably the K.I.S.S. Burger, is housed inside the old Hamm's Brewery tie-house. The beef is sourced from Peterson Farms, and the quality is evident whether a single, double, or triple stack is ordered. It's topped with a standard burger cheese square, lettuce, and tomatoes.
