My son and I must have our regular Nook visit when he visits. I heard about The Nook when I moved to the Cities about 5 years ago. We went and have been hooked ever since. The burgers are always tasty and they have a variety to pick from. The Juicy Lucy is a staple, but they also do a... More

The Nook hits the burger and fries with a beer on the spot. My kids love the onion rings, though they do sport some serious grease. Prepare for a wait. But If a beef feast followed by crispy fried carbs is what you are after, you have arrived at your burger Mecca. Surly Furious, Nookie Supreme and Fries. A pure... More

We found C and R Nooks by accident on our first trip to Minneapolis ewahta nice accident. Classic Burger joint. Probably there best burger I have eaten and phenomenal hand cut fries. Interesting local beers on tap. The highpoint is the staff. They make it a fun experience. It can get crowded at standard meal times but it is worth... More

Took the kids for classic Juicy Lucy's. Delish! They especially loved the fries! It's artery clogging bliss! Always busy with hard working staff

Came here with husband and grandchildren. Arrived at 2 pm to avoid the noontime crush. Great burgers named after local baseball greats. Good fries too. Just very busy at lunch and dinner hours.

I don't give a lot of 5 stars. A friend was in town from Ohio. I took her to a late lunch 1:30ish on a Monday(yesterday). Construction on Randolph, took a nice detour. Acquired a parking spot and table imeadiatley. Burbon bacon chicken sandwich and I the Paul Moliter. Normally I avoid fresh-cut fries, soggy and gross. The reviews are... More

Our go-to place for resolving a burger craving. A wide variety of styles and can substitute bison for beef. Fries are hand cut and well seasoned and the cole slaw is a good substitute if you want to avoid the deep fryer. The staff knows their food and drink. They always have good beer recommendations. Given the size of the... More

The nook harkens back to a lost art of food consistency. When compared to other burgers of this ilk in the twin cities area, it is likely among the best. This is not a fair comparison to the burgers if high end restaurants. The burger baskets are also reasonably priced as it includes a large portion of fresh cut French... More

If you want a good flavorful burger made with top beef this is the spot. Homemade fries that are double fried for that extra crisp comes with each burger order. They have a juicy lucy burger with choice of cheese inside of the burger to die for.
