Best burger best buy

For the money this is the best burger you can get. This place does it up good. Fresh burgers and homemade French fries. If you can't find a burger on the menu that suits you well then your just not hungry. If you come during lunch good luck finding a place to sit. If you have a choice come a... read more

The Anchor is a total dive bar but I love it! This is the place in Duluth/Superior for burgers! The prices are dirt cheap, the burgers and fries are hot, a little greasy and delicious. The bartenders and staff have major street credibility, and the dusty artifacts tacked on every surface in the bar adds character and a laid back... More

We go there for lunch quite often, but you better get there early if you want to be seated right away. The menu has quite a selection of different types of burgers so I have a hard time saying what my favorite is but maybe the cashew bacon cheeseburger. They are not stingy with the fries either. The ambiance is... More

I was recommended by a co-worker to give it a look and when I found out it was visited by Guy Fieri, well that sealed the deal. Great burgers and fries and extremely value priced for a great meal. The atmosphere was very unique with all the beer and shipping memorabilia. Small town, local hang out. Recommend experiencing the Anchor... More

The Anchor is a fun local bar with great burgers and home fries on the cheap. Often it's packed and there's a wait for a table and an even longer wait for food, so don't plan to be in and out - it's an experience, and one to be enjoyed with friends. The decor is a crazy jumble of Great... More

EXCELLENT BURGERS AND FRIES! this place is THE Best. No, it is not clean and to some it might be considered a dive. But it is one of those hole in the wall specialties that works. Be sure to stop in! The waiting line speaks for itself :)

True dive bar!! Not trying to be something they are not.... Small place with a tiny kitchen that only has the best burgers in a 150 mile radius..... Worth the stop, don't judge the outside of the place, remember it is a dive bar with great burgers and fries..... Tip: order the tall Grainbelt, they come in a huge frosty... More

Looking for a good burger at a great price? For over 20 years, my family has enjoyed the Anchor Bar. Our favorite table is in the game room; it has a great view of the bar, yet it is private. Place your order then, people watch or play a game of cards until your hot basket arrives. I always order... More

There is a reason that people who come to Superior have heard of the Anchor Bar and want us to take them there. It is a local iconic bar with the best hamburgers around and French fries from real potatoes cut shortly before hitting the deep fryer. People who are regulars usually end up with a favorite- the Jalopeno Burger,... More

We ordered two burgers--one with cream cheese & olives and the other a blue cheese burger. The olive/cheese burger was acceptable and the fresh-cut fries were good. However, the blue cheese burger was definitely a disappointment. The burger meat was fine--however, the blue cheese on the burger was blue cheese salad dressing poured on the burger--yuck!! Making a soupy additive... More
