We went to try the stuffed burgers because my wife saw it on Triple D. We decided to start with the honey bacon cheese curds. Those were so outstandingly, ridiculously good that the juicy nookie burgers only seemed good. It was a long wait, but the food was worth it.

We waited about 45 minutes to get a spot to eat. It was worth it. The burgers we all ordered were delicious. Pricing was reasonable. Definitely a fun atmosphere. Will be back!

It was hyped up on the cooking shows and internet, and it lived up to it's billing! It wasn't too terribly hard to find parking, there is lots available on the street in front of the restaurant. The service was nice and helpful. We had our baby with us, and didn't realize the inside was so "bar-y", but it wasn't... More

I've heard about the Juicy Lucy and was told by a colleague that it is especially good here. I opted for a version with beef and spicy pork. Grilled onions topped it off and it was delicious. We sat at a very cool booth next to the bar and were given very good instructions on how to approach a cheese-stuffed... More

I recommend the Lodge burger...the Smoked Cheddar and thick Sliced Bacon would be great as a sandwich all-by-itself....but you put a premium burger cooked to perfection and then add all the fixings on this combo....The Lodge Burger Pops! I also recommend to start your meal with an order of dry rubbed "Wild Wings".....shoot....this is too much to keep writing about........ More

The first floor is a long, narrow bar with booths. The lower level is an 8 lane bowling alley with a bar, booth and tables. Both levels offer fantastic burgers. Tried the Paul Molitor with pepper jack cheese on the inside. Also, the rueben burger was awesome! The cole slaw was really great. The only - minor - complaint is... More

I was here with two college friends and had a good burger. I decided to be dangerous and go for "The Nookie Burger" which was huge so bring your "A" game! Also I had a pretty rare beer. Sculpin IPA from Ballst Point, which was delightful on tap. The atmosphere upstairs is pretty cool but downstairs is a bowling alley,... More

WOWZA, WOWZA, WOWZA! These burgers blew our minds!! Obviously, we saw them on T.V. and decided since we were only going to be 2 hrs away from St. Paul, it was a no brainer. Yes, we kinda planned our whole day around it and yes, we missed most of the Bears game for it, but dang if it wasn't worth... More

We went for lunch on a weekend and were lucky to get in at 11:30! The place really does a great business. I had the Firehouse burger and my daughter had the Lodge burger. Both fantastic. Delicious meat, bun, toppings. The spicy mustard on mine was out of this world! Her fries were also fantastic. The onion rings I ordered... More

We stopped for lunch and had an amazing meal. We had the Maple Bacon Cheese curds and they were awesome! I also ordered the Juicy, which was also awesome! The only downside is we were sitting in the basement by the bowling alley and it was loud. The atmosphere was great!
