DETAILS
In the burger business, some fight passionately for the right to embellish between the buns. And then there are those who choose not to mess with a good thing, those who believe in the standard architecture of one of America's proudest foodstuffs. If your ideal burger fits the latter description, look no farther than suburban Edina's classic throwback diner, Convention Grill, which dates to 1934. No frills. No monkey business. Burgers aided only by a colossal stack of crispy fries that alone are worth a visit. And what are a cheeseburger and fries without a thick, delicious malt or a cherry and vanilla Coke? The retro décor, complete with a jukebox in the corner and yellow and red plastic squeeze bottles on each table, will remind you of a simpler time, or of Nick at Nite at the very least. Kids' menu. No alcohol available. Serving lunch and dinner daily. "Here is the great American hamburger. Not the biggest or the best-dressed, not-stuffed with foie gras like the $100 oddities made by show-off chefs, not so lean it's dry nor so greasy it is unctuous, this is a thick, bun-sized patty sizzled to crusty perfection on an extremely well-oiled grill. It oozes juice and radiates beefy savor, and is especially good topped with a mantle of melted cheese and/or California style (with lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise)."
