A word from Burger Jones - Minneapolis
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.

  • "everything was great except the appetizer came after the main course. The restaurant was extremely loud and we had to shout to talk. Next time we will sit on the patio. The waitress was the best."

  • "Hands down - Burger Jones burgers are the best in the Twin Cities. They are always cooked to perfection and they obviously use a good cut of beef. We are BJ's regulars! Great happy hour - bargain priced late night BJ burger and fries - and a great patio for outdoor dining!"

  • "I got the hangover burger which was delicious and perfectly cooked. The onion rings are massive and also worth trying. My girlfriend built her own burger and that was good also. I usually get the white trash burger but decided to branch out this time and was not disappointed!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "They forgot our 2 app orders of cheese curds. 2 of our burgers were over cooked. Sent mine back. Still overlooked on second try. Forgot honey mustard sauce and came with sautéed onions instead of caramelized onions on my daughters burger which was nowhere near pink. We had said we only wanted one of our appetizer orders of cheese curds since they had forgotten them before our meal, so we got thus little dinky side order in place of our appetizer order. The waitress was apologetic and boasted that she would pick up the tab for the cheese curds. Big deal. We didn't even get a full order. Won't go back."

  • "Excellent tasting burgers in a variety of interesting combinations as well as familiar favorites. Burgers are made to order and ours were done just as we requested. Had a fry sampler with three different dips and found much to our amazement that the beef gravy dip was wonderful, especially with the sweet potato fries. The atmosphere was too noisy for relaxed conversation but that didn't matter too much in this instance because we were very hungry so we concentrated on eating. Because of the noise level, might not be the greatest place for a date, but otherwise, it is excellent."

  • "We've been going to Burger Jones since they opened. I've always gotten the pulled pork junior. Not too long ago they increased the price, made it much smaller, and took off one of the ingredients. Very disappointed. I mentioned this to our waitress and she wanted to make it correct for me, which I really appreciated. However, I just wanted the management team to know that this is unacceptable."

  • "Great patio. Lots of build your own options. Cocktails seem mass produced. Expensive for burgers."

  • "Burgers were really greasy this time around! We tried it for Father's Day and we had an ok dining experience. Will try it again as we loved our food the first time we were there."

  • "Great and creative burger menu, with excellent Bloody Mary's."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I ordered the mushroom and swiss and my boyfriend ordered the green chili spicy burger. I tried both and really liked both. My burger was full of mushrooms and just the right amount of cheese. My boyfriends burger had a huge, crunchy onion ring and included spicy green chili sauce. I have to say, the large onion ring was just the perfect match to this burger. Both of our burgers were very good, both of the burgers it tasted like they seasoned the meat so it was very savory. We also ordered the parmesan fries with the side of seasoned sour cream and they were very very good. This was our first time there and we decided that we would go back. You must try their Bloody Mary's ... SOOOO good!"

  • "Hubby and I love this place! Excellent rotating drink specials each day - our favorites are the wine on Wednesday and Bloody Mary min-masons on Saturday and Sunday. Each server we've had has their own personality and twist on the dining experience which makes dining fun! On this particular visit, the manager offered to pay for our first round of drinks which was so kind since our table wasn't ready when we arrived for our reservation. It was ready about 5 minutes after we arrived! Burgers and hot dawgs (ha!) are all delicious and the BJ Cobb is an amazing value for the salad size. We also love bringing our doggie to sit on the patio!"

    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Great food, kind of pricey and so-so service (the wait person was new and not so great with remembering anything) but would go back for food quality and overall ambience (very hipster/60s burger joint feel)"
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "Want a fun experience? Ask for the Chef's table. It's noisy and busy but fun to watch the food fly out of the kitchen and talk to staff while they are waiting for orders. The choreography is incredible and everyone is in a good mood. Don't know how they do it. As the food comes out, they're open to your questions.. What's that, what's the thing with the stuff on top? And if you're lucky and the right person is there, you might get a sample! This time it dint happen, but the other times, yes. "

  • "Had a peanut butter and bacon hamburger this weekend. It was great. Too bad the service couldn't have matched the flavor. Took a while for the waiter to bring over our sides, and the check at the end. Overall great place to dine - just make sure to make reservations... "

  • "It was prime time on a Friday night and with our Open Table reservation we had no waiting for our group of 6, which included 2 kids. Our server, Sylvia was awesome, thinking ahead and helping with a birthday surprise. Loved the atmosphere and everything was great!"

  • "Burger Jones is a wonderful place to go for an occasion of just a night out for dinner or a family dinner for Mother'd Day. If you go early enough you can get a nice table. The food was great, and perfect for foodies and the service was very good. Highly recommend!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We took my wife to BJ's for Mothers Day instead of a standard, overcrowded brunch somewhere else and we had a GREAT dining experience. The burgers at BJ's are awesome as well as their service. Our server was very attentive, outgoing and suggested a side of peanut butter for my "Hangover burger" and it just melted in my mouth. Awesome time. One of our top 5 Mothers Day experiences ever !! We're coming back for Fathers Day :) Thank you Burger Jones !!! "

  • "I love that you can customize your burger! The fry combo tower was excellent as well (crinkle cut, regular, and sweet potato fries!). yum!"
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Went there for a burger, got a good burger. In the past I've gotten the Tri Fry Tasting Tower and it is amazing. Love the chipotle aioli sauce. On the pricey side for burgers but nothing too surprising in that neighborhood. "

  • "Always a great beer selection and Friday Martini night (Cosmo)! Love that they offer veggie or chicken or buffalo burgers in addition to classic Burger Jones and junior sizes, too!"

  • "My kids love this place, and it never disappoints. Good inventive burgers and malts, and I love the salad options. I had the greek salad with lamb burger, and my husband had the Cobb with the BBQ Burger. We have been coming here for many years, and it is nice to see many of the wait staff has stuck around. "

  • "Burger Jones in uptown is always a great experience. Fun atmosphere, great Green Chile Cheeseburger, and good service."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "My husband loved the food and the fact we had leftovers for the next day. I was not as crazy about the food. It would have been better for me to go the salad route rather than the hot dog. We went last year for an employee send off and it was great for that crowd."

  • "My family found ourselves out traveling for the Easter weekend and knowing how much they all like burgers, I thought it would be a fun place to check out. We were not disappointed! Our food was delicious and my boys were thrilled with all the choices for toppings! The chicken fried bacon was a huge hit!! Our server was attentive and answered our questions. Drink specials were reasonable and tasty also! We decided that this would be a great tradition to start! We will be returning when we travel in the area again! Thanks for the great time! "

  • "We went to Burger Jones because of their reputation for serving great burgers. We were not disappointed...the burgers were tasty and juicy with many choices for condiments. The bun on my burger reminded me of the great buns we had when I was in high school and went to a diner restaurant. The cheese curds are awesome! The cheese curds reminded me of the state fair versions but even better."

  • "The service was really slow. The food was pretty decent, but nothing to write home about. Definitely not worth the long wait for the food and the extremely long wait for the check."

  • "We first went there with a group of friends and have since went back with family. Can't wait to meet another group of friends there in May when the come into town. It is fun casual dinig, I like that they don't try to pressure you into things. Make sure you call ahead or you will have a wait."

  • "I didn't understand from the restaurant's website, that it was located in a strip mall and it is quite small. Based on all of the good reviews, I had higher expectations. The food was fine - but, just ordinary. It was crowded and very loud. We had a group of 7 at a round table, and we couldn't hear each other across the table because of the noise level. Our server was very friendly, but that is the only positive. We won't be returning. There are other places with better food and less noise."

  • "This was afun spot with my girlfriend last week. I've been before but never with her. She was happy to see a "junior" sized burger. I was annoyed that we had to wait 15 minutes for happy hour to start to get the discounted drinks. Would have been nice to get the drinks right away and have her put the order in after 2pm.... oh well."

  • "Did the reservation online and that worked great. Didn't need it as it was around 1:30pm on a weekday Got service right away. Everyone is watching out for you---very special. Food is fantastic: My usual is cup of chili and a side of this and that (onion rings -HUGE and wait staff offered chipotle sauce that was outstanding!), cole slaw --always terrific, fries (a little dry) and my beer Corona!! Good Job!"
