2023 Downtown Sioux Falls Burger Battle: Glacial Lakes Distillery
January in Sioux Falls only means one thing...Burger Battle! This year's Downtown Sioux Falls Burger Battle is pretty intense. 32 savory burgers from local Sioux Falls restaurants are looking for your stomachs and votes.
When it comes to burgers, there definitely is one for everyone, especially in Sioux Falls! Sponsored by First Western Bank & Trust, the 10th annual Downtown Sioux Falls Burger Battle features burgers residents can sink their teeth into. Looking to satisfy your sweet tooth or for a little extra heat with your meat? You'll find it on this year's Burger Battle ballot.
It's can be difficult to decide which of the 32 burgers to try. But someone has to do it! Glacial Lakes Distillery partnered with FadeAways Food Truck for the next burger I chose in my quest to find my favorite burger. This unique burger is called "The Captain." This creation is yet another twist on the classic Philly cheesesteak featured in this year's Downtown Sioux Falls Burger Battle.
According to a previous article written by co-worker Jeff Harkness, The Captain is a "version of the New York staple is chopped cheese, seasoned ground beef, cheese, pickles, and onion with special house sauce on a toasted hoagie, make sure you add all the fixings, lettuce, tomato & jalapeños, ketchup & mustard. Served with a side of fries and Kool-Aid pickle."
Whether you classify this as a burger or not, it's pretty tasty! The bread I think is the best part about this burger. The bun is really soft. The one aspect about this presentation that I wasn't a big fan of was the Kool-Aid pickle. It's definitely an acquired taste. I didn't have the opportunity to try this burger with its full array of toppings so be sure to ask for the works!
