This outstanding restaurant I speak of is bringing people by the truck loads to the little town of Farmington, Mn. It has quickly become a popular place for all walks of life, often a bit of a wait during dinner time (especially on weekends) and serving some of the best tasting smoked meats and delicious cuisine the town has ever experienced. That restaurant happens to be the Bourbon Butcher Kitchen + Bar! The same master mind behind Burgers and Bottles in Eagan has created yet another insanely awesome dining and drinking experience.
We’ve been wanting to check this place out since first hearing from the owner that it was even going to be built. However, with a two year old and the longer waits from its popularity, we kept missing out. Finally, we had the opportunity and made arrangements with some friends of ours, Dave and Jennifer. All of us were excited to check this place out and this place did not disappoint one bit.
With so many awesome options to choose from, our server having to stop back a half dozen times to see if we were ready yet, we finally made our selections. The wives decided to split the Wisconsin Cheese Curd Burger and Sliced Brisket Smokehouse Sandwich. Our little man loves mac n’ cheese. Dave went for the Bacon Brisket Burger, while I went for the Butcher’s Plate. Might as well try a variety! And of course…. I tried EVERYTHING!
We’ll start with the curd burger… “You don’t have to be a cheesehead to enjoy this burger!” Yep, that’s what you’ll read first followed by; we put battered white cheddar cheese curds and thick cut house smoked bacon between two grilled patties. Topped with chipotle ranch sauce. No surprise from their experience in burger making – this was insane! Don’t be scared by the two grilled patties, I’ve described their burgers as open faced juicy’s. And better than anything most juicy creating places could ever make.
If you’re a food lover like me, this is a place to check out. If you’re a bourbon and whiskey lover, this is definitely a place to check out. And if you just need to escape the landlady, boss or anything else bringing you down, then get to the Bourbon Butcher, sit back and enjoy. But, enjoy responsibly!
