Local Beef Burger

Main Street Meats (MSM)

“The Main Street Meats burger is an ode to what I think a burger really should be. It’s all about the beef – not about the toppings. Everything on this burger has a purpose and exists only to enhance the flavor of the beef. We make this burger with beef from whole animals that we buy, butcher, and grind every day so that we can showcase the amazing flavor of MSM’s ground beef.”

– Erik Niel, Owner & Chef
