When I say "dive bar" I mean it in a loving way. The Rec is a Saint Paul institution. They no longer book live music, but their kitchen is vastly improved from the days when it was some guy in the back with an electric griddle. Their burgers have won local competitions, and it's easy to see why - they take real pride in putting together a complex, flavorful burger. I had the Guinness Cheeseburger, which is a 1/2 pound burger with a Guinness cheese sauce, bacon, fried onions and a fried egg. The standard is sunny side up, but I went with over medium, because that's how I roll. The result is a big, flavorful burger that really hits the spot.
