The fact that so many people haven't heard of Celtic Tavern makes me think     ....meh
A good burger is known by many without any advertising at all. Word of mouth only. :mrgreen:

Chili’s Southern Style Smokehouse Bacon Cheese Burger are really awesome.
You have to go there and eat one. Taking it to go is just not the same.
I will say they were bigger and better in the prototype stages at the beginning.
Then they went into full production and fell victim to the shrinking effect of both size and quality.
Still awesome.

There was a little restaurant close to my house that had a stuffed burger.  It was stuffed with bacon, cheese, and some other stuff. 
Really good, my wifes favorite Burger. 

This is the guy that just opened the restaurant/bar next to the Hartland property.  Perhaps we can see if he'll make us some stuffed burgers if they aren't on the menu.  Just checked, They're there!

Haven't tried their burgers.. Hmm will have to check out in near future.  It's a basement bar,  poor visibility but good food and environment each time I been there.
