Silver Star Saloon and Grill
170 Pembroke Ave, Wabasha, MN 55981
is a nice little restaurant that is where we went the day before Christmas for lunch. And man, was I happy to eat there. Formerly it was Los Gringos Cantina, mostly Mexican, and very good, but we didn’t go there as much as we did take out from there, as the lunches seemed a little too costly. But they had a great take out deal and we went for that often.
Now, Silver Star has maintained most of the old Los Gringos Mexican fare, but has added some pretty good All American Cowboy sandwiches and appetizers. Dh had his usual bacon cheeseburger and fries and I tried their turkey burger which
I added a fried egg on top and a cup of guacamole on the side, plus fries and lemonade.
I had to take a double taste because I almost thought our man at the helm, Kyle, made a mistake and brought me red meat. No, it was a really good turkey burger and the best I have ever had to date. The texture was more like some hamburgers I have eaten in the distant past, and with the egg on top, lettuce, tomato and cheese, you get the complete spectrum of flavor that you want in a restaurant sandwich.
We also got to try the delicious chips and salsa. Compared to others, these were much thicker chips and much chunkier, flavorful salsa that one usually gets when out. More like homemade. I ate it up.
Dh liked his burger so much he actually said he’d put it in his top three, being Grundy’s and Northfield Golf Club in Northfield, but the golf club has changed chefs, so I cannot count that one in for sure, but Grundy’s is prolly still in on the count. SO, good for you Silver Star!
The atmosphere is friendly, very clean, handicap accessible, has 2 tvs, karioke on certain nights and is going to be closed for a month from Jan. 15 to Feb 15 of 2012 for refurbishing. If you come to see the Eagle Center, this is one of the best places to stop and dine. UPdate: Re-opened now and just as good as ever!
