Who says you can't have rooftop dining in the suburbs? Longtime south metro favorite B-52 Burgers & Brew has an excellent one.
- I went there recently to fuel up before a three-plus-hour viewing of "Oppenheimer" at the next-door AMC Inver Grove 16.
What to expect: This place has some of the best burgers you're going to find in the metro and a solid craft beer list.
- You can also be prepared for good service and reasonable prices in a 100% sports bar atmosphere.
- The patio is nicely done, but you're not coming for the scenery unless you're into surface parking lots, the architecture of a Holiday Inn Express, or the drone of Highway 52.
What I ordered: The Carlton Burger, which has gruyère cheese, arugula, jalapeño bacon jam, and mayo ($14,) and the Juicy Lucy ($13.75), which is smothered in a house sauce, similar to Thousand Island dressing.
My thought bubble: B-52 didn't win the inaugural Twin Cities Minnesota Burger Battle for no reason.
Pro tip: There's also a Lakeville location.
