Our bacon journey through Wisconsin & Minnesota continued north into Duluth, MN this week. My buddy Travis said he knew a spot with a great atmosphere where we could get a tasty bacon-rich meal. So off we went to the Burrito Union (BU) for some Bacon Cheeseburger Burritos (see photo above).

I called up my other buddy MattO and he met us at the BU. Turns out both Matt & Travis know the owner of BU (and the Redstar club and Fitger’s Brewhouse) Tim Nelson. When we arrived, AGM/Service Manager Patrick Sunderland had some off-menu special Bacon Cheeseburger Burritos prepared especially for our visit. We all felt like bacon royalty.

The burritos we received were excellent. The soft flour tortillas were stuffed with big chunks of char-grilled hamburger patties, shredded cheddar cheese and diced red onions & tomatoes. Oh, and let’s not forget the generous pieces of thick sliced applewood smoked bacon. These bacon cheeseburger burritos earn a high Smaste™ rating of 37.998.

As we were leaving from our lunch, BU manager Patrick let me know that they also do applewood bacon breakfast burritos. Since I was going to be in Duluth again the following morning I had to make a second stop at the Burrito Union.

Waitress Jessica took my order on an early Saturday morning and brought me an applewood bacon breakfast burrito faster than I thought they could make it. I in turn made quick work of the awesome meal. Served with a side of chips, the burrito is packed tight with potatoes, scrambled eggs, melted cheese and more of that great thick sliced bacon. In fact, there was not a single bite I took that didn’t contain a piece of bacon. Talk about a great start to the day! The breakfast burritos earn a slightly higher Smaste™ rating of 38.006. The higher rating might have had something to do with how hungry I was though…Smaste™ is a touchy system.

If you’re ever in the Duluth, MN area, make sure you stop by Burrito Union. If the bacon cheeseburger burrito isn’t on the “specials” board that day, you can always top your burrito with bacon for a couple bucks more.
