This past Saturday, after a marvelous day at the apple orchard, winery and cidery in Maiden Rock Wisconsin, Jeff and I indulged in our date day for the week. Gracie had been invited to a birthday party, so after we dropped her off at her friend’s celebration, we took a little drive to Miesville MN. Our destination-King’s Place. We’re fortunate to have such an amazing little burger place only about ten minutes from out home.

When I was hanging out with my friend Keri Kowski a couple weeks ago we talked about a quest that her and a group of her friends have embarked upon– The search for the ultimate burger. She’s been to places like Casper and Runyon’s Nook and The House of Coates (among others) and I can’t wait to try these too. Other than King’s my favorite burger joints (so far) are Hell’s Kitchen and The 5-8 Club (for their delectable Juicy Lucy).

Anyhoo, Jeff and I thoroughly enjoyed our burgers at King’s Place. I had the Miesville Burger (bacon, cheese, sauteed mushrooms & onions, green pepper, lettuce, sprouts, tomato and mayo. Jeff had the King Burger (bacon, cheese, sauteed onions & mushrooms.) We shared a basket of the fried green beans and a basket of fries which were both excellent.

The burgers at Kings range from between $4-$6 a piece, so not only are they some of the most fabulous burgers you’ll ever eat, they’re also very reasonably priced.

They have quite the selection of burgers at this little hideaway. 54 to be exact. Some of their unique burgers include some very interesting toppings : corned beef, sauerkraut, sour cream, pineapple, peanut butter, jerk sauce, marinara, seasoned potato, and pepperoni!

I love this place, and I can’t wait to go back! Here’s another post about King’s  I found online that I thought was a great write up.

Where is your favorite place to go for a burger?

    Yummy! I am always a sucker for a good burger. Once I went to a burger place and they didn’t have any ketchup. Things got pretty ugly . . .

      No ketchup? Off with his head! LOL That’s just not acceptable. 🙂 If you ever try Hell’s Kitchen, they make their own homemade ketchup that is very very good. Elevates the burger to a whole new level.

    Mike LOVES King’s Place! Whenever we are in the area, we HAVE to stop there. We made a mistake of going there on Father’s Day this past year only to learn there was NO WAY we were getting in within an hour, it was so busy!
    The only thing when comparing the price of their burgers is that they are rather small and the price does not include any sides such as fries(which most places include with their burgers)so really they are about the same price as everywhere else, just much more delicious!
    Also, it’s funny you took a photo of those old game cards, Mike and I had asked the waitress how old they were and I think she said somewhere between ’85-’87? Mike and I were only 6 years old when those were published so needless to say we weren’t that great at them considering it was pop culture of the 80’s!

      It’s a great place! And for the quality…great value. I agree, no sides included can tend to make the bill a bit larger than expected…but, when compared to, say, Hell’s Kitchen…(which also serves AMAZING burgers) you’re paying about half the price. Hell’s serves everything a la carte too. The price you pay for perfection. 😉

      We had so much fun asking each other the trivia questions. That’s funny! I didn’t realize how old they were! LOL

      Thanks for commenting.
