Who's your Patty?

Lions Tap is an old standard at the base of the hill on Eden Prairie Road and Hwy 212. Take out or eat in. They do 2 things well...burgers and fries. Great for days you don't feel like cooking or are passing through the west side of Minneapolis. Service is fast and friendly. Great value.

Have lived in the area for years, and finally got around to visiting the Lions Tap. As legendary as the fans promote it to be, I expected more: more flavor, more service, more class. Wrong on all counts. I wanted to like the place, but there really isn't anything special about it; more like a neighborhood bar & its food.... More

Lions Tap is a historical relic, known for having the "best burgers" in town. No frills, just burgers and fries. The place is large and usually packed. Unfortunately, the no frills aspect includes paper plates and burgers that are good but nothing you can't get at many restaurants in town or on the grill at home. They get you in... More

We arrived without a coupon and found the prices too high for a burger spot. Food was average, our server thought it was ridiculous that we had not brought a coupon.

My husband and I have spent two years and gone to dozens of restaurants finding the best burger in the cities. The Lion's Tap makes the list with a plain old excellent burger. Nothing fancy about the burger, but it is instead the taste that brings this one up to the top. I don't want to know what is in... More

This is a regular favorite for our family. Warm, cozy, old school ambience with top notch service and delicious, juicy, burgers. If you are looking for an honest, classic burger then look no further than Lions Tap.

This is a family restaurant that does one thing very well - Burgers. You can order a single or double meat with raw or fried onions. I had the mushroom-swiss single burger and it was very good. All of their burgers are cooked medium as the standard, so if you want a well done, be sure to tell them. The... More

In Eden Prairie, Shakopee, Chanhassen, you have to visit here at least once. The burgers are awesome and they crank them out. Expect about a 30 minute dining experience unless you order a burger for desert (which you will consider doing). They dont do anything but burgers so know that going in. But, if you can enjoy burgers, you will... More

This is a classic local joint that has won best burger contests many times! It is the best place to go when craving a classic juicy burger. Bun to burger ratio perfection, juicy, flavorful and delicious! They have crinkle cut fries too which happen to be my favorite. Local craft beer on tap from Cold Spring. Just delish!!
