a tradition in Superior

Lots of nautical knick knacks and great burgers at the Anchor Bar, crowded after work but worth the wait, great staff, a bit dark with lingering cigarette stink

Great place for the best burgers in Superior. They have barber chairs for you to eat in and the wait staff is exciting.

This bar is well known in the Twin Ports among locals, and is one of our favorites. We've been here many times. The burgers are always good, and so are the fries. Prices are low -- a plain burger and fries will be under $5 (before tax and tip), and the draft beer is plentiful and cheap. The place has... More

Cheeseburger, Cheeseburger, Pepsi, Pepsi. Cash only here no plastic accepted. The best burgers in town with lots of variations at a very reasonable price but don't look for many other options. I try not to think too much of the cleanliness :)

Love going to little out of the way joints when we travel. Picked this one because it was also featured on Diners Drive-In's & Dives so that's a bonus! Walked in to a dark and crowded bar FULL of people at 2 the afternoon. Wanted to actually see what I was eating so we ventured out to the patio where... More

Great place for burgers and fresh cut fries. Place was standing only room when we got there but we got lucky as a table opened up and we grabbed it. Only negative is that they won't take credit cards.

As seen on "Diners, Drive-in's & Dives" (Food Network). They have good burgers, homemade fries & cold beer, and plenty of decor!

My son who lies in Duluth wanted to take me to his favorite back-door, hide-a-way dive eatery. So off we go, through the warehouse district to the back of this place. Parking lot was about full but we found a place to park. We go in the back door and it is a dive, old sea relics, witty sayings and... More
