Burgers are an all-American classic for a reason. They’re delicious! And they’re also a fun and easy way to weave a food theme into a weekend away in the city. If you plan on spending an upcoming weekend in Richfield, here’s how you can try three local favorites during your stay.
Stop One: Friday Night at Sandy’s Tavern (66th and Penn)
Since their slogan is “Home of the Best Burgers”, let’s kick off this Burger Tour at Sandy’s Tavern. This no-frills hidden gem has been in Richfield for 85+ years. And they have something for everyone.
If you like to keep it traditional, try the Sandy’s Signature burger. If you want something more adventurous, go with Sandy’s Olive Burger. Then, top it off with a local, regional, or classic beer on tap.
Enjoy the night at Sandy’s by playing pull tabs or e-tabs after your burger, and bask in the glow of Sandy’s impressive neon beer sign collection as you count your pull tab winnings!
Stop Two: Saturday Night at Frenchman’s Pub (1400 E 66th Street)
Frenchman’s Pub is another longtime part of the Richfield community. Here you’ll find a throwback watering hole vibe and American-style pub grub fare. They’re best known for their burgers but don’t sleep on their BLT, Fish‘n’Chips, or cheese curds.
If there’s a game on (Wild, anyone?), this is your spot as Frenchman’s has numerous TVs throughout the joint. And if you’re into pool, there are plenty of tables available.
Stop Three: Sunday Lunch at Flynn’s Eats (66th and Penn)
Flynn’s Eats brings a taste of 1950s Chicago to the Twin Cities. They have a variety of classic burgers like the California or Mushroom and Swiss, but they mix in specialty options like the Greek Burger and the Cheese Curds burger.
Whatever you order, top it off with a classic Chocolate malt for the win! And be sure to admire their chrome-filled retro vibe that makes you feel like you’re in a movie set.
