The Best Burger in Iowa You’ve Never Heard Of
In honor of National Burger Day, we thought we'd highlight one of the best burgers in Iowa that you likely haven't heard of. Technically, it's probably best described as a loose meat sandwich, but once you try one, you'll see why it's one of Iowa's best-kept secrets.
It's a simple, tried, and true recipe with customers coming from far and wide to this tiny dive bar and restaurant in western Iowa for years. And to top it off, it also boasts to have the coldest beer in the entire region.
Pictured above is the Miles Inn of Sioux City, Iowa. It is, by no means, a high-end establishment, but its Charley Boy Sandwich is world-famous and the schooner is a must-have for any visit.
Each Charley Boy sandwich has on it: a loose meat hamburger with a little pepper blended in, ketchup, mustard, pickles, onions, and cheese, cooked to perfection and placed on a steamed bun. It may not be the flashiest of ingredients but patrons of the Miles Inn have been raving about the sandwich for decades.
The Miles Inn is also famous for its schooner. What exactly is a schooner? Just a glass of ice-cold beer poured to perfection in a unique glass that ranges from 18 to 32 ounces.
One look at the Miles Inn Yelp Page will tell you everything you need to know:
Very relaxed atmosphere with famous " Charlie Boy" tavern burgers , dogs, chili, and nachos. CASH only. Get the Schooner glass with whatever you want.
Oh my god. Best cold beers, atmosphere and the Charlie Boy is to die for!! Cash only establishment. Best place!!!!!
As mentioned above, the bar is a cash-only establishment, so keep that in mind before your next visit. You can find the Miles Inn at 2622 Leech Avenue in Sioux City.
