Iowa’s HyVee Fast And Fresh Has Got One Great Burger, Says Doc
It’s 13th Century Mongolia, you climb up on your horse to ride all day. Conquering villages, winking at village hotties, and building up a hunger only one thing could satiate. The good ole classic Hamburger. Well, I’m sorry 13th Century Mongolian Rider, although you’ve slipped some all beef patties between your horse and saddle to make it tender as a mothers love. This burger has to have “Buns Hun”…
Fast forward 500 years. 1891 Oscar and Fanny Wilby of Bowden, Oklahoma are kicking off a 4th of July BBQ to celebrate “Merica”. The beer is room temp, Junior just survived dysentery, its time to celebrate! The first recorded flame broiled burger on a sour dough bun. The world changes forever. Burger King you sit on a throne of lies, your Kingdom doesn’t even have a shack until 1954.
Still not close enough for you? You are 100% correct. I need AC, I need I-Rock 93.5 playing on my Bose Speaker system, I need 700 different drink choices, a 1,000 different candy bars, and maybe 10$ on Number 5. I need the Hy-Vee Fast & Fresh off I-74 and Kimberly Road. For this big honking chonking hunk of meaty perfection. It’s not paradise but it’s Davenport.
What?! You say. Leo has lost his ever lovin. Nope. Not today. To prove you wrong, I take the best burger flinger in the QC with me. A. Mills of Floyd’s Burgers . We spend 2 hours discussing humanity, the perfect taco, Meerkat colony politics, and who shot first. (It was Han). While I wish, I could let you in on the mysterious man behind the manbun. jk. Our conversation is for us.
After a stamp of approval on what is possibly the 2nd or 3rd best Burger spot in the QC. I collect my things, pick up some tp, cold meds, a Reese’s butter cup and put 10$ on number 5. Lets see you do that at McD’s.
While I know, this isn’t a local restaurant for 7$ you have possibly Gordon Ramsay’s understudy in that gas station cooking gourmet burgers. Take notice Hyvee whoever they are, they need a raise and protection from the other burger shops. Your on my radar and everyone else’s maps now.
8.9/10 I devoured this plain with a slice of cheese. A pinch more of salt and maybe a touch of ketchup would have boosted this to a 9.3. Overall 7$ for this is a damn steal.
