I first about Whitmans when talk about the juicy lucy burger came up. It's a cheese stuffed burger that originated in Minneapolis. The cheese becomes molten when cooked and the burger is infused with melted goodness. So when I had the opportunity to go to Whitmans to try it out, I sure knew to bring my friend TC with me. Mmm, burgers.
When we got there, there is a small table upstairs which we sat and more seating downstairs. We looked over the menu but we both knew we would get the Juicy Lucy ($10). Their version had beef short rib blended meat with pimento cheese in the middles. It's served with caramelized onions, lettuce, tomato, spicy pickle, and special sauce. The burger comes as is without any sides. Look at the nice crust on that patty. The buns were nicely toasted and the vegetable fresh. The onions could have used more caramelizing though.
