Burgers

Very good burger and price to match, home cut fries are also good. Would give 5 stars but the meat was lacking salt and pepper, just my preference to season meat before cooking. Will definitely go back and would recommend this place.

On a recent weekend trip to Duluth, we cruised over to Superior to have burgers and fries based on write-ups on Trip Advisor. Place was easy to find, plenty of free street parking. Place is small, dark, old, kitschy, and exactly what you think when you think dive bar. You quickly discover it's seat yourself, so we did. A number... More

We make a trip here every time we go to visit my college son in Duluth. The burgers are amazing & real fun varieties. My favorite is blue cheese burger. The French fries are homemade & fresh cut. So so good! Great size portions too

The best burgers at the best prices I know of. Really cool little bar with reasonably priced drinks and unbelievably low prices on dynamite burgers. Seating can be tight because they fill up fast, but the staff does a great job. We were there with a group of over 20 and they were full when we walked in. I'm still... More

Best dumpy dive in twin ports. Legendary hamburgers and fries. Rude servers are an integral part of the zeitgeist. Been on Dives, Diners and Drive-ins. Can Guy F. be all that wrong? Spell Fieriey for me, will you?

We heard from friends that the Anchor Bar has good burgers and went there last week. Wow. The burgers were amazing and so were the home made fries. Very, very good and the prices were very reasonable for such a quality meal.

We went here to eat some good food and we were absolutely satisfacted when we came out. Very good burgers and chips. The price is very cheap. The bad thing is that they don't accept credit cards...we are almost in 2016...come on! Service was fast and pretty. Good experience

If your idea of a restaurant is a place where all of the employees jump to your every command, where the furniture and decor came out of a style magazine, where the menu is 10 pages long or where the food presentation is "just so"....you're in the wrong place. If you're looking for a burger and fries with a cold... More

Upon arriving at The Anchor Bar & Grill we wondered about it's recommendation from a friend, but once we saw the menu (low prices) and saw the crowd - we knew this place was definitely onto something! We got there just in time to sit at a table for everyone after us had to stand and wait until something opened... More
