Midwest Living Review

Lisa Meyers McClintick
This '50s-style diner serves unusual burgers you won't find anywhere else, mixing creative ingredients into the classic American sandwich.

You won't find these sorts of burgers anywhere except Bev's Cafe, a '50s-style diner in downtown Red Wing. There's the peppery-tasting Three Pigs burger, with beef and Italian sausage topped with ham and bacon. Or how about the stroganoff burger, with mushroom gravy and sour cream? (Be warned: That one's extremely messy.) Like all of the burgers at Bev's, these start with hard-formed ground-beef patties. There's no prefab stuff here. Bev's Cafe looks like a small-town lunch counter, and the walls are covered with black-and-white photos of Red Wing in the '50s. The fare also includes skillets, omelets, hot plates, sandwiches, hand-dipped shakes and homemade fountain Cokes (available in cherry and lime). If you're a coffee drinker, take your pick on how to pay for your Joe: by the cup ($1.50 with two refills) or all day ("eleventy billion dollars"). Also, "spoon knockers, cup waivers, whistlers, thumb snappers and lid snappers all pay double. Ask about our weekly rates."
