This place is always packed: a good indicator of their quality. I usually get the bison burger, and always fries. The potatoes are soaked in vinegar before they're fried, so they're crispy delicious. I manage to eat the entire burger with all the fries every time. This is probably my favorite place to eat in the entire Twin Cities. Fast... More

Great family place. Great Burgers. You may have to wait due to the size of the restaurant but well worth the time. If you do not like to wait head down Randolph Ave to Casper & Runyon's Shamrocks. Same great menu with a few extras and more seating.

Pulled up to this little run down tavern looking place and thought about turning around. Boy am I glad we didn't! Had the BEST burger I've ever eaten, hence the "EXCELLENT" rating. The service was great! They also have quite a selection of beer to go with your burger. Can't wait to go back!

Came here after friends mentioned it had been on triple D. Wait time was around an hour and and a half and was about right on time. Don't know if I would recommend this place with that long of a wait. Sat down and probably had the worst server in the bar/restaurant. Took forever to even get our wing app... More

Had to try the juicy and it is a great burger. I'm personally not crazy about the fries but don't let that judge the rest of the place. We bowled, had a great time, great service and awesome burger. Would go back again.

My absolute favorite jucy Lucy's. They are consistent and delicious. I love that they have 1919 Root Beer...yum. Even though they aren't known for it, their chicken fingers are also delightful.

I love this little joint. It looks like a little hole in the wall, but it is sooo good. The Triple-B with sweet potato fries is my absolute favorite! You also can't miss the cheese curds, they're better than the State Fair!!!!

The Nook is easily the best burger place I've ever had. Their signature burger, the Juicy Nook, is made with cheese inside the meat patty and when you bight into the burger the cheese oozes out and tastes amazing. Pros: Amazing burgers, Great sweet potato fries, Nice atmosphere Cons: Around dinner and especially game nights the Nook can become very... More

We had to give this a try (stuffed burgers? Where else can you get these?). We waited about half an hour then were seated downstairs where the bowling alley is. The menu has many choices with different burgers, sandwiches, and salads. When our food arrived after about a 40 minute wait it was so worth it! Simply delicious, excellent quality,... More
