The One Minnesota Restaurant On Yelp’s Top 100 Burgers List
While there are a TON of great Minnesota restaurants serving some amazing burgers, only one restaurant in the North Star State managed to get included on Yelp's annual list of the best burgers in the country this year.
Yelp published its annual Top 100 Burgers in America list earlier this week, in honor of National Burger Day, which is May 28th. So how do they compile the list? Yelp says they 'identified businesses in the restaurants and food categories, with a large concentration of reviews mentioning “burgers,” then ranked those spots using a number of factors including the total volume and ratings of reviews.'
And after entering all that data, Yelp said that Minnesota's only entry on their list this year goes to World Street Kitchen (WSK), located on Lyndale Avenue South in Minneapolis. It's been serving some amazing food since 2012, originally starting as the WSK food truck. And they just landed at #49 on Yelp's Top 100 Burgers list this year.
Unlike other Minnesota restaurants known for their burgers (like, say Kings Place in Miesville, or the famous Jucy Lucy from Matt's Bar or the 5-8 Club Juicy Lucy) World Street Kitchen isn't just known for hamburgers.
'World Street Kitchen features flavors from across the globe – from Asia to the Caribbean to the Mediterranean and everything in between — the restaurant serves popular staples, specials, sweets and cocktails in one friendly spot,' their website says.
Yelp doesn't specifically say just which World Street Kitchen burger made their list, but the WSK menu lists a couple that are already making my mouth water, like the Mexican Steak and Egg Burger or the Sweet Onion Stuffed Falafel Burger.
So shout-out to World Street Kitchen! Their food looks amazing, I can't wait to try it.
