Downtown Sioux Falls Burger Battle: Falls Landing Bar & Grill
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 is definitely 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.
The next burger I couldn't wait to taste comes from Falls Landing Bar & Grill. It's called "The Mario Burger." Imagine the video game "Mario Cart" as a burger. These ingredients include all the classic Mario accessories, like the "banana peel."
According to a previous article from my co-worker Jeff Harkness, the Mario Burger is "a brisket chuck blend topped with crispy prosciutto, Bacio cheese, arugula, pickled pepperoncini and arbiatta ketchup served on an artisan round bun. Comes with pesto fries dusted with grated parmesan." There are even hints of banana peppers on the burger...see what I mean by banana peel (haha)!
This burger really satisfied my appetite. The patty was juicy, and the brisket magnified this flavor. The hearty serving of Bacio cheese had me asking for more! The pesto fries dusted with grated parmesan were just the cherry on top of this meal. Without question, this entry has certainly been one of my favorite burgers in this year's competition!
