“Still a great burger, but not as good as years past.”
Reviewed January 22, 2011

We've been here many times over the years, but the last couple trips were not quite as good as I remember from before. Tonight my burger was extra greasy, so much so that the bottom bun was completely soggy....basically it was mushy goo and no longer representative of a bread product. This was from so much grease dripping down by the time it got deliver to me.

The fries here are pretty good, but I much prefer 5-Guys. 5-Guys use fresh potatoes and make them right on site and they are a superior fry IMHO.

I'll give Lion's Tap another try in the future I'm sure but tonight knocked my confidence in this place down a little.

“Top 3 Burger Places in the Twin Cities”
Reviewed January 2, 2011

Burgers are NOT over cooked. Pink and juicy in the center. Grab a bar stool for the best service. Everything is fresh. Good people, good service, good food, good location and a rare find. YUMMY!

“This place was excellent!”
Reviewed September 14, 2009

I would say that this is the twin cities' best kept secret, but I don't think it's any kind of a secret. They have their own line of craft beers that were great. The burger was awesome and the fries were perfect. I would definitely go back here. The price was right too.

“Very tasty burgers, a bit of a dive”
Reviewed September 10, 2008

Its not the nicest decor in Eden Prairie, but they do have the best burgers. They give you tiny plates, overflowing with fries and burgers. If you try to order a beer, it comes in about a 10oz glass, not what I am used to. BUT, this is a very tasty lunch, or a great way to compete amongst coworkers to see who can down the most!
