2024 Downtown Sioux Falls Burger Battle: Glacial Lakes Distillery [Review]
Time is running out to find your favorite in the Downtown Sioux Falls Burger Battle, with a record 37 entrants in 2024.
This is one of three burgers in this year's field to feature a collaborative effort between a downtown bar and a local food truck.
It's billed as:
Angus Pattie topped with our signature Birria. This burger comes with all the fixin’s including chipotle aioli, shredded lettuce, grilled onions, tomatoes, and house made smoked queso.
Like with a lot of the other burgers in this year's field, the abundance of sauce makes this one best enjoyed on-site and not taken to go.
That smoked queso, while quite messy, is a great compliment to the overall flavor of the burger.
What I really enjoyed about this offering was how well the burger and the birria worked together. Too often the different textures and flavors seem to compete with one another, but not on this one. It was hard to tell where one ended and the other began.
SCORECARD (Out of 5):
• Flavor: 5
• Patty: 4
• Toppings: 5
• Bun: 4
• Presentation: 4
You have until January 31 to sample as many of the 37 burgers as you can.
After you've polished one (or more) off, don't forget to download the official app downtown – The DTSF Digital Passport - to cast your votes on each burger.
