This burger comes with a knife on the side for a reason! We started with a pretzel bun and add a 1/2 lb burger topped with six oz. of brisket and bacon crumbles. Next, we top it with beer cheese, chopped lettuce, diced onion and tomato, swiss cheese, and Colby jack; this all gets drizzled with our special BBQ ranch sauce.
Buffalo Ridge Brewing
BRB Brisket Beer Chili Burger
A juicy 1/3 lb burger, a fried cheddar crisp topped with smoked brisket beer chili (cooked with Oaksville Amber Ale) and garnished with smoked corn pico, green chili crema, green onions, pickled jalapenos and crunchy fritos. Comes with a side of potato chips.
Hartford Steak Co. Tavern
Fantastic Fusion Burger
Cheers to the New Year! The Hartford Steak House is headed into 2023 presenting the Fantastic Fusion Burger. This is our in-house fresh ground steak patty, topped with a warm flavorful creamy spinach-artichoke sauce - served on a brioche bun with lettuce, tomato & onion. Served with chips and dip! Time to get your grub on!
Main Street Humboldt Bar
We have combined two American favorites into one amazing entrée for the 2023 Burger Battle Challenge. Our Taco Burger is a delicious, juicy hamburger infused with taco seasoning. It’s topped off with a generous helping of shredded cheddar cheese, a dollop of salsa, then lettuce, tomato, onion and served with a side of sour cream. A toothpick holds a crown of 3 jalapeño slices to the top of the fresh white bread bun creating the perfect blend of American Burger with Mexican kick! Olé!
The Goat Bar & Grill
Fireworks of flavor will go off in your mouth when you bite into this burger! We started with a 1/2 lb. patty topped with bacon, then added queso, jalapeno cheese curds, and mango habanero sauce. BOOM!
The Dugout Bar & Grill
Upper Deck Smash
This burger will have you swinging for a home run. First, we start with two all-beef patties. Then we top it with cheese, pickles and secret sauce. We'll add condiments at your request, but this burger will be in the hall of fame for a reason.
