The burgers at this charming “mom and pop” joint are BIG. Big on flavour, big on portions and big on tender, juicy meat. Make it a double if you’re feeling like a real feast.

2. Black Hills Burger and Bun Co

The key to their great burgers is that they grind and shape the meat daily on the premises. Along with baking their own buns, this is fresh as a burger is ever going to taste.

They always have special burgers on and you can choose between buffalo or beef patties. A truly great burger experience.

5. JL Beers

JL Beers is a small chain that is known for its huge selection of craft beer both on tap and by the bottle. The beer gets you in the door, but the burger is what will keep you coming back.

Huge portions but that is what you need for sustenance with all those beers ahead. Make sure you come with a serious appetite is all we will say.

6. The Custer Wolf

A proper pub where the food is every bit as good as their drinks. They focus on a super wholesome menu with nearly everything made from scratch using the best of ingredients.

The burger is the perfect size to pick up in two hands ditching the cutlery and just getting stuck in. Heaven in a bun.

7. The Barrel House

They are known for their bourbon, beer and pizzas — a great set of things to be known for, if you ask us.

Their burgers are made with a blend of USDA Prime Brisket and Chuck and come with classic garnishes. A wonderful place to spend some time with friends. Let’s be honest, you’ll more than likely stay for a couple of drinks.
