Mike S. eats more burgers in a weekend than we do in a month, documenting his meaty exploits at the #GreatAmericanBurgerHunter tag on Instagram. We love his work (how does he not have his own show for this?), so we convinced the Hunter to share some of his patty places with you, our hungry readership.

As Arlo Guthrie said “you can get anything you want at Alice’s Restaurant” but does the same go for Annie’s Parlour in Dinkytown? Frankly it doesn’t matter, you’re going there for burgers and malts, plain and simple. Actually, Tasty & Old Timey! A burger’s best friend is always the french fries but Annie has another BFF—don’t skip on the creamy deliciousness inside the tin cup, the malt. The bun is grilled and offers a light buttery/flaky taste. The cheese is melted American that traps the bacon to the burger. The meat is seasoned nicely and has that diner quality crispy outer while the inside remains juicy and full of smiles. A damn good burger. Who doesn’t love burgers and malts!
