Yeah, they're back, and fully recovered fire-wise. The besy Juicy Lucy ever-so sayeth Barbara Streisand. I adore Leprechaun legs (Green beans). Fab Guiness pour. Noisy crowded homey slice of Irish pub. I miss the Salmon burger-I guess I was the only one who ordered it. Few Veggie choices

Before heading to the Minnesota State Fair, we had burgers at The Nook as featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. I had the stuffed burger call The Juicy Lucy that came with a side of fries. Excellent burger that oozes cheese but the fries were the best ever. I am usually not a fry eater, but these fries had the... More

Guy Fieri has reviewed this restaurant several time son Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and although it is not much for atmosphere, it is #1 or #2 for the best burger around. Most of the menu is different types of hamburgers, although you can get a turkey burger (it's great) and I think you might also be able to get a... More

I went to The Nook on a recommendation from a local to try the Juicy Lucy. I was not let down. This little dive I think wa featured on Triple D. The Lucy was juicy as its namesake and one of my favorite burgers. If you were like me and never heard of this glorious piece of meat, it's a... More

There's strong contention in the Minneapolis/St. Paul are on who has the best burger. Matt's Bar, The Blue Door Pub, and the 5-8 Club all have solid burger but for me The Nook has not only the best burger but also the best all around experience. My go to is the Nookie Supreme which is huge, gooey, and delicious and... More

This is a small, neighborhood bar and grill with awesome Juicy Lucy burgers. A Juicy Lucy burger (in case you're not familiar with the name) is a burger injected with your choice of cheese and cooked to perfection! French fries were excellent as well. Friendly, courteous and prompt service too. I would definitely recommend this local, family owned restaurant.
