Description: There are two Burger Jones... There's the urban burger bar whose sleek dining room, cocktail bar and patio overlooking Lake Calhoun draws discerning burgerholics for lunch, dinner and drinks. This Burger Jones offers early and late Happy Hour, along with ample parking, including dedicated spaces for easy pickup of your takeout orders. Then there's the other Burger Jones... Behind the kitchen door we transform a secret custom grind into burgers you'll have no choice but to attack – for their beauty can drive you insane – and no option but to eat quickly, lest the dopamine rush overload your pleasure receptors. Start slowly, maybe with a simple Burger Jones. As your habit develops, don’t worry: we’ll feed it. Sorry, no patio reservations accepted... Have a cold beer or Hillbilly Hooch and we will seat you outside as soon as we can if you prefer but expect to wait.

“Lotsa burger options!”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

I took a shot in the dark with my first experience here, making a reservation for 12 without ever even driving past the place. But it paid off! They were able to accommodate our large group, were very hospitable, patient, and service was wonderful! All the staff was very friendly and even helped us with a friend's birthday by bringing out a cake (brought in from a different location) with candles, and then cutting it and serving it to all of our guests. They went above and beyond, and never once did our group of 12+ seem like something they couldn't handle, or something that was an inconvenience for them. The food was good, and we loved all the unique (and reasonably priced) burger and drink options! Parking was great because of the large lot, and location was nice due to its proximity to Uptown. An overall very positive experience with zero complaints!

“I can smell the good food as I write this review”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Had never heard of this place and "stumbled" upon it because we got "lost" on our Grand Rounds driving tour around the Twin Cities and looking for another place we wanted to go. The food and beer was delicious. Would go back in a second - just sorry there are none in my hometown. Definitely someplace good to go for lunch.

“Great Burger”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

We had our burger to go and the staff was very accommodating. They suggested one of their burger specials and it was delicious. Fries are great - nice atmosphere.

“Delicious burgers, but a bit pricey.”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

My husband and I have eaten here twice now, and while we really love it- it's a bit expensive for a burger and fries. It's definitely worth eating here at least once or twice though! Make sure you try the Salted Caramel Milkshake (to die for!) and get a few dipping sauces for your fries (num!).
