A word from Burger Jones - Burnsville
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.

    We've been to Burger Jones many times and have been very satisfied with the food and service. This time: not so much. My husband had a double burger that was very good but the patty melt lacked flavor and it was dry even though I asked for it pink. The fries, as usual, we're wonderful. We felt like we were being rushed so the waiter (Lance) could turn the table. He took my plate and THEN asked if I was finished. It was getting busy but we had barely finished our meal, not our drinks and he brought our check. I am very sensitive to people waiting for their tables but he took my plate before asking if I was finished (there were some fries on it that I was snacking on) and that left a bad taste. We'll be back but ask for another waiter.

    I thought the food was very good. It was quite noisy and difficult to hear each other speak. The waiter was very good, and right on top of things, but we felt very very rushed.

    Burger jones is always a repeat restaurant for a few of us gathering as friends. Being on the older side the noise level is a little much but tolerable. It is far better than other restaurants with a Sports Bar theme. I guess the Sports Bar theme is what brings in the money. I tried the specialty Burger, the "Hashtay" and it was the least desirable of all of the burgers I have tried. Surprisingly the server lacked personality. It was similar to being served by a robot who was programmed what to say and to try to be sincere. In all prior visits, the service was near perfect.

    It was fine. The noise was a bit much, but there was a very loud group by us. The hamburgers were fine, nothing special. The add-ons are what make it good. The fires were good when hot, but got greasy tasting as they cooled.

    Great beer list. Outside seating tucked behind the pine trees to separate from parking lot is a great idea to get dining outside in a strip mall. Always our go to place on the weekend being that it is one of few places in the area that takes reservations.

    The food tasted perfect, but our server we barely ever saw. We did sit outside, but there was other people out there. There was a diff. Server for a diff. Table and we saw him all the time. It took a very long time for our food to and without a server committed to checking on her tables, we are on the fence to go back there......

    We went to the restaurant at three pm on a Sunday. There were three other groups in while restaurant. We waited for an hour for out food. They forgot part of my sons order. The food was delicious. We then waited another thirty minutes for our check. Then I had to wait while they took my card to some unknown location to run our bill as a system was upgrading. It's too bad because food was good! Will never go back! Manager was around so she knew we waited a long time and never asked her staff to improve the service!

    My wife and I went to Burger Jone's on a wim... No expectations... And we loved it. My wife actually ate a burger- the whole thing- without me eating half of it. This has only happened once before, and I've known her for three years. Food was phenomenal, I had the Cubano, she had the cheddar filled one on a thin bun, and we shared the maple bacon sweet potato fries. The best sweet potato fries either of us has ever eaten. We loved it... Great experience, fun staff, not too loud, just a great experience. Thank you Burger Jones Burnsville.

    Had to try the new In-N-Out burger, July's special burger. Everyone raved that it was every bit as good as California's. The Afternoon Delight mini mason jar cocktail was equally great for a hot summer evening. We haven't been to BJ's for awhile. Lots of new faces, but still friendly, excellent service.

    Food as always was top notch. Love the burger of the month. Some months are better than others but you can always order from their menu if it doesn't meet your tastes. Great tap beer selections and becoming a Beer Geek is easy and worth it. A little noisy for larger groups to talk around but if your a group that likes to have a great time than you'll fit right in

    Burger Jones has easily become one of my favorite go-to places in Burnsville for a casual dinner or even quick drink stop. They've got a great menu of specialty or build-your-own burgers (or hot dogs) as well as some top notch appetizers and sides. My all-time favorite are the cheese curds. They are (in my opinion) BETTER than the MN State Fair ones...and that is saying something! To top all of that off, they have an awesome beer selection. So, all in all, it's a keeper!

    After being recommended by many people, I was quite disappointed in our experience at Burger Jones. We don't go out to eat very often and we felt like it was overpriced for a burger place and the burgers were not as fantastic as they should've been . At least the burgers should have had fries or salad included in the price of the meal. The burgers were lacking in flavor considering all of the grease that came out of them. The service was good. We had our tween children with us there and we didn't want to have to explain why the servers shirts said, "I want to be inside you". Not appropriate. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant.

    I loved my waffle fries and my junior burger! I can't wait to go back and try other burger combinations I can make on my own or one of the ones specially designed by the kitchen. I want to try the one with cheese curds ON the burger. And a friend who was also there that night said she had peach sangria! Can't wait to try it. I had a twix shake, which was very good, but also tasted a little like peanut butter, which didn't seem very Twix-like to me but still was great. Thinking of having a girls night here very soon and I told all my co-workers, who haven't been to Burger Jones, how great it was.

    First time to Burger Jones and must say, I loved the menu and endless options. The service was fast, friendly and knowledgeable. Everyone who came to our table whether to drop off an app or fill our waters was upbeat, which doesn't always happen from start to finish. The menu was great and I appreciated the options in types of meat as well. We went with a family of six on a Friday about 8:30. The place was quite packed but it had no impact on the great experience.
