If you like your burgers loaded and stuffed, the southwest Minneapolis burger-and-beer joint Red Cow may be for you. In fact, the burgers may have too much going on, like the Barcelona burger, stuffed with prosciutto and topped with manchego cheese and piquillo peppers, plus a glob of aioli. The best burgers were more restrained, such as the duck wild rice burger and mushroom and Swiss burger. The staff excels at the fryer, with items like cheese curds served with triple-berry ketchup; sweet-potato planks; and fish and chips. Also try the caramel bacon puffcorn – one of the greatest improvement on pub peanuts ever. The restaurant is divided into two sides, a buzzing bar and a quieter dining room. Red Cow has an impressively long wine list and local brews such as Indeed, Harriet Brewery, Fulton, Badger Hill, Surly, and Summit. PHOTOS BY E. KATIE HOLM.
