Shantytown Grill - Bloomington
 
Shantytown is not a place you drive by ever day and the outside doesn’t give you a good sense of what you find on the inside. On the outside, a sign says “Gourmet Hamburgers”.  Well not so much.  Shantytown burgers fit in that above average category.  They do offer some interesting “flavors” of burgers that include things from guacamole to cactus or olives. You can get a good burger, along with some so so fries. Go with the onion rings instead or maybe some seasoned potato wedges.  Also available are the classic tater tots.  A nice surprise was great root beer in a very frosty mug.
Simple bar, out of the way, average burgers.
