Following up on yesterday’s post about Buster’s on 28th’s mystery location, the new restaurant was found on 28th Ave S in South Minneapolis.
The local blogosphere was abuzz yesterday about the launch of Buster’s, so I had to get in on the action too. I found a Juicy Lucy on the menu on the website, so I knew what I was after.
And here’s what showed up:
I consider myself to be a bit of a Juicy Lucy (and Jucy Lucy) aficionado, so I immediately recognized an obvious problem with this particular Lucy. In fact, it probably doesn’t take a trained eye to pick out the issue here: The cheese was on the outside of the burger. Some restaurants would refer to this as a cheeseburger.
Of course, it could be some form of double-cheese Lucy where there is cheese both outside and inside the burger, so I dug in:
But could not locate tell-tale signs of a proper Lucy classification: burned tongue, molten lava-like oozing cheese, burning wrist and forearm from Lucy blow-out, etc.
Other than the fact that this wasn’t a Lucy, it was a delicious burger. They just need to find a new name for it on the menu.
Since Aaron beat me to the punch by posting last night about last night, I’m trying to one-up him with this little highlight reel:
As Aaron pointed out, Buster’s is a “sister” or the Happy Gnome in St. Paul, although I question whether the term “sister” is an appropriate gender for either establishment.
Max started a post regarding opening night restaurant blogging over on MNSpeak, which turned into a bit of a bitch-fest about how stupid amateur restaurant blogging is. Basically, if you’ve read this far, you’re stupid in the opinion of anonymous commenters. I hope that doesn’t ruin your day.
You’ll just have to a few more weeks for a professional review without photos, videos, comments, and links to other reviews.
