American Burger Bar

354 N. Wabasha St. St. Paul, MN 55101 | St. Paul (Downtown) | 651-222-2123

Location Description:

American Burger Bar feels almost too classy a place in which to eat with your hands. Located in the longtime home of Gallivan's in downtown St. Paul, which was most recently Matty B's, the Burger Bar is a more upscale sibling of the owners' American Burger Emporium in Woodbury. The kitchen takes a chef-driven approach, and Rino Baglio, the former head of Pazzaluna's kitchen, turns out burgers that sound as luxurious as their surrounds. One called the Experience, for example, consists of Kobe beef layered with foie gras and black truffle. For the budget-conscious, American Burger Bar has burger-fry combos for less than $10, but a few of the gourmet selections cost nearly $20-a price at which diners might rather trade up for a fine-dining entree.
