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.

Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "We enjoyed our dinner at Burger Jones, it is basically a sports bar type resturant. The food and service was good and the prices were about average. Overall a good place for burgers."

  • "This was our fourth visit to Burger Jones. We've enjoyed great food and service every time. There are enough choices to build a burger to satisfy everyone and the burgers are juicy and filling. Fries and shakes are also done really well. Great place for groups and families."

  • "Burger Jones puts a nice twist on american classics like burgers and hot dogs. The dog I had was smothered in cheese sauce, and onions and was tasty. My boyfriend had a burger that he demolished. The poutine on the appetizer list was dang good too. While this wasn't gourmet, the joint is good and will satisfy any burger craving."

  • "When 2 dads take 4 sons (ages 1 to 11) on their annual Auto Show/Dinner expedition and need to find a place where the entire group will be happy, what to do? Requirements: great drinks for the exasperated dads, kid-friendly menu with hearty and high quality food for all and a place where the kids will be welcome (and have fun) on a Friday night but the dads don't feel like they're at Disney. This year, Burger Jones nailed it, beautifully. The hosts set us up in a flash, our waitress was very understanding of how overtired/famished the kids were and how badly the dads needed a drink and got us hooked up in no time. All the food was excellent - curds, cheeseburger eggrolls, burgers, chicken tenders. And it was a great value for the money."

  • "I had made the reservation on line after having spoken to a few people who had dinner at Burger Jones during last summer. I made the reservations for 9 people and also read some of the reviews on line about the reservation process.So after making the reservations I called and spoke to a restaurant emplyee who told me the time I chose would be just fine and not to worry.As a result we had an enjoyable,unrushed time and left only to want to return again."

  • "Short and sweet...I like Burger Jones...it's nearby, the ambiance is nice, and the food is pretty good. The down is that it is very pricey, and service can go from mediocre to plain bad."

  • "We loved it all-from the service to the menu choices to the fact that I asked for green olives(not on menu) and were brought a dish of them for my burger. All new and different choices for additions to burgers. Good drink selection and nice atmosphere. We will return to try something new. Also loved the spicy sour cream dip for the waffle fries-mmmmm good."

  • "As usual, the food was good. But, the bun on one burger was stale and rock hard. Other than that, we had a good time."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Everything was great once we were seated, but I am wondering why they offer reservations when we waited for about 1/2 hour after our res time... BUT service was good after that and the food was great!"

  • "Took advantage of a wildly good special for Valentine's Day; two burgers and a bottle of Dom Perignon for $125. Who ever thought that up has a great sense of romance and humor! The night was even more fun because our server, Victoria, is a pro who knows her way around a great bottle of wine, something you might not expect in a casual dining spot. The special reminded us that this neighborhood gem is a fun stop now and gain!"

  • "We went there and tried all kinds of burgers, I just love that White Trash Burger! We went in got there 15 min before our reservation, they sat us down within 5 min, people that were walking in before and after us were being told 30-35 min. It was awesome."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "This was a great place to eat. I've been here a few times before and my past experiences were the same. It can get busy though during lunch and on the weekends so reserving a table ahead of time is a good idea. The only thing that was slightly wrong was the temperature inside. It was a little chilly (seeing it was -10º outside already). However, all in all, a great place to dine."

  • "Our first time at Burger Jones was a delight, we were warmly greeted and the food selection was as expected but it was yummo! Their homemade tomato basil soup was delish!"

  • "The food was excellent! The burger was not so overwhelming that it was manageable. We were seated in a booth and we were able to converse easily in spite of the fact that it was full and noisy. It was a pleasant evening."

  • "Seven of us met for lunch. The burgers were delicious, and well prepared. However, the server did not ask us how we wanted the bill to be split. He just sort of plopped the bill on the table and zoomed away. I ended up just paying the entire thing myself, rather than struggle with it. A disappointing end to a good lunch."

  • "My wife and I visited with three adult kids (one vegan) and had a fantastic meal. Yes, it is a burger joint but it is an awesome burger and beats the restaurant beats the heck out of some of the Minneapolis locations that draw people in for a Juicy Lucy and turn your table as quick as they can. We will visit again and look forward to a meal on the patio in the summer."

  • "Burger Jones exceeded my expectations for what a burger joint could be. My fiance, her friend, and I made reservations for NYE and we were seated the moment we walked in. Burger Jone's has an impressive selection of cocktails, I went for the coconut mojito, which was a milkier version of a mojito, and it was a pleasant and delicious surprise. The try-fri tower was addictive, the sweet potato fries with the chipotle aioli was my favorite. I got the green chile burger cooked medium and it was cooked to perfection. It was perfectly succulent and you could tell that they used a high quality of meat for their burgers. All in all it was a great experience and I plan to go once again."

  • "Burgers, burgers, burgers... All kinds from turkey, to fried-egg to a plain old cheeseburger. They all are unique and tasty so keep coming back to try them all. I'm halfway there. Also a great beer selection which never hurts!"
