We will return to Burger Jones!
We will return to Burger Jones! We celebrated my sons 20th birthday and we all loved the fun atmosphere. We all enjoyed our burgers and fries. They have the BEST cheese curds!! So glad that we found this place!!

One of the best burger places in the Cities. A great patio too.

Great burgers - nothing fancy
Great burgers - nothing fancy but good value for money. I found the wait staff very attentive.

We had a good time. There were a ton of families there but it didn't seem overwhelming in terms of noise. Our server was observant and not pushy. It is basic but good. We had reservations and our table was set and ready for us when we arrived. Fun for a Friday night for sure. Good idea to have outdoor seating but the weather was not conducive to it. We will request it next time.

Great place for a lunch gathering.
Great place for a lunch gathering. Never quiet, but usually OK noise level at lunch. Great burgers!

My daughter and I thought the food was very good. Because she is a vegetarian she was a little reluctant about having a meal at Burger Jones. But she was pleased that she had the opportunity to create her own burger that did not include meat. The server was attentive and we had a very good meal.

One of our faves!
We love Burger Jones! This is where we go if we want to go casual but still feel like going out. Warning: Low fat is not a theme in this restaurant. Our very favorite appy is the Royal Canadian Mounted Poutine. If you have never had poutine, this is the place to go to try it! It's a Canadian thang: fries and cheese curds smothered in gravy. Yum!

Great for a group!
Table was ready (with reservation) for 11 people promptly at 8pm on a Saturday night. Great server! Eight adults & three kids. Perfect for a group that included ages 11-70 yrs old!

Always a good meal. Busier than I expected and glad I made a reservation.

First time @ Burger Jones in Uptown
We had never been before & the server was very patient & informative as we looked over the menu. The service was excellent, his name was Jerry, and my burger was about the best I've ever had. I had the original size (7 oz) jones seasoned burger with lettuce, tomato, caramelized onions, sprouts, avocado slices, applewood smoked bacon on a thin slice bun w/mustard girl & ketchup. My husband had the pit bull which is a hot dog w/pulled pork, cole slaw & fried pickles. Did not like the hot dog or cole slaw,tho. Handcut fries were delicious w/homemade avocado mayo. 'Specialty' items a bit pricey, but build your own a reasonable price. We will go again for sure.

accomodating, friendly, energetic
Burger Jones has been a friend and family favorite for years! My family recently celebratedmy brothers 22nd birthday in the house. Not only were staff happy to provide us mixed booth/chair seating to accommodate the medical needs of our group, but when they saw we had brought a cake, offered to keep it in the fridge for us as well. Our server was attentive, energetic, polite, and engaging. They asked about the birthday celebration, and were very responsive to non-verbal cues from the birthday hostess. As always 5 star service, 5 star food, 5 star atmosphere. There's no better place in the TC for your burger! :-)

Excellent place to eat on the patio. The menu is simple, yet full of plenty of choices. Our waiter was really professional and allowed up extra time to talk as we had not seen each other in 6 years. Service was quick, tasty and everything was correctly prepared. GREAT TIME!

We were there last Sat evening
We were there last Sat evening (june 15) for the first time and there will be many more- we wanted to try it since we had friends that had been there and loved it so we figured that it would be a fun place to go for our Father's Day celebration. there were 10 of us and I booked the reservation online which was really easy and we got in right on time. It was an easy place to find, the service was great and so was the food. So Thank you for the great time!!!!

Father's Day visit
I had out visit planned months in advance. It had been a while since we had visited BJ. We were pleasantly surprised that we were asked to choose inside/patio. We opted for the patio, which had always been too packed in our previous visits. The patio is great. The kids kept busy looking at the plants and watching the cars. The patio is far enough back from the street, that the traffic noise was not bothersome. No complaints at all about service or food. Just a wonderfully relaxing visit on the patio with perfect weather.

Excellent burgers - onion rings- shakes!!! Fun, casual atmosphere.

An old dependable...
I typically know what to expect and am rarely disappointed. The service is fabulous and we love the burgers!
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went to try to famous burger and we were not disappointed. The burgers were great, the fry tower with dipping sauces was fun and nummy, and they had a vege burger for the vegetarian in our party. We will be back!
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
everytime we go there we leave impressed, full and happy.

Great burger place!
Took my husband here for his birthday lunch. The burgers and drinks were fabulous! Very yummy!
7/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Grabbed lunch while a friend was in town visiting. Our waitstaff was friendly and very helpful. As usual, the food was delicious. It is a bit spendy, since the menu is a la carte, but still, delicious.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great spot for groups
Great spot for families and groups to grab a tasty inventive burger. I love the addition of salads to the menu. I have tried the Greek salad with lamb burger and someone else at the table had the Cobb with BBQ burger. The malts and fry tower are a huge hit with the kids. Service is always friendly and attentive.

Great patio, Great Food
Burgers were good as always. Except after all these years BJ still has trouble cooking a burger medium rare. They need to take some lessons from their Parasole kin at Pittsburgh Blue. The waitress was quick with the refills, never once having to ask for one.

The burger of the month, caprese
The burger of the month, caprese burger, was amazing!

Good crusty burger!
Read about Burger Jones in Twin Cities Business magazine. Made a reservation and then read the Yelp reviews and got a little nervous by all the mixed reviews. Not sure what they were talking about. Our food was EXCELLENT! I had the Green Chile Cheeseburger- it had an excellent flat-top fried "crust" while still pink inside, seasoned well and the bun and toppings were all fresh. My husband had the Bacon Cheeseburger- non nonsense and good. We also tried the poutine- definitely worth it! My cocktail was a little small but there are some great options, next time I'm going to try an adult shake! Atmosphere was a little lacking, I was expecting more old time nostalgia but it's still trendy and comfortable.

Great service and great burgers.
Great service and great burgers. And the weather was even fantastic for outdoor dining. Thank you.

worried that this uptown area
worried that this uptown area would be too noisy for lunch with new grandma and baby....but it was great. tables with benches could accommodate baby car seat (but not the booths). Quiet enough for sleeping baby and good conversation. Wait staff were very attentive and suggested good taste/values. Will go back again...they have high chairs!
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Reserved a table via their website so we walked right in and sat down. Great food and service. Will definitely be back.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Burgers were awesome, atmosphere was great. The location seemed better on a map, but you couldn't actually see the lake. However, the outdoor dinning experience was still nice. Beer menu was diverse and full of selections I have never tried. Staff very friendly
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ecclectic menu, great choices!
First visit on Saturday evening. Service was impeccable! there were 5 of us, 4 ordered hamburgers, they all said they were done to perfection and delicious! I had a salad with fresh chicken breast, large, loved the lettuce variety. Only complaint is that they left the skin on the chicken, otherwise perfect blend of lettuce, toasted hazelnuts, granny smith slices and craisins. The onion rings are hand cut and delicious as are the fries. Try the maple bacon fries.....too good to be true!!!!
We will be back soon! Wish i would've gotten our server's name...she was two steps above excellent!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Tasty and interesting burgers
Burger Jones does burgers well. Delicious and savory every time. I had the Cuban and it was very good, if not a bit too salty.

Made our Anniversary even better!
The service we received Saturday evening was outstanding. Both our waiter and the hostess wished my wife and I a happy anniversary, and even more, our waiter treated us to a special malt, sparklers and all. It may seem like something so simple and silly, but that they gave us so much attention and seemed to really care that we were there and celebrating a milestone in our life made it that much more special. These guys rock and I have never left Burger Jones disappointed!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
We saw Burger Jones on the Food Network and had to go try it out. We were not disappointed! We made reservations for a Saturday night and while we arrived early, we were seated right away outside. The beer selection was great and so where their other drink options. I had the White Trash Burger as seen on TV and it was excellent - filling and yummy. Everyone else had a build your own burger and loves theirs as well. We also split the tower of fries which was plenty for 4 adults. To cap it off, we all had milkshake. Yummo! I would highly recommend Burger Jones to my friends and family!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, service meh.
Even though we were celebrating a birthday, the restaurant could've cared less, which I find strange. Our server had the personality of mop but the food is sooo good, I don't care, I'll be back!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
blake our waiter was superb ,food was the bomb!! hard shakes wow!! don't miss out on this place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
there hasn't been one thing I've ordered from Burger Jones that I haven't liked.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun create-your-own-burger joint
My friend & I hadn't been to Burger Jones before & were excited by the menu. Lots of fun, unusual burger topping options as well as new, fun sides we hadn't seen before. We went with the Junior Burger so that we could still get lots of sides & not fill up too quickly. Turned out to be a great idea. The sides (Tri-Fry Tasting Tower & Onion Rings) were delicious with 3 dipping sauces. We enjoyed our burgers as well, however, we did not get the toppings that we asked for. We were almost finished, before we realized that we each were missing at least one topping. It was too late to have this fixed, so we didn't say anything to our server, but we will definitely try Burger Jones again!

Always a big hit
My kids (12 and 15) love this place, and it never fails to please them. Burgers, malts and fries are tasty, and I really like the salad option. I had the Greek salad and it was very tasty. Servers are friendly. We will be back next time we need a family burger craving filled!
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
hadn't been in a while, good
hadn't been in a while, good chicken sandwich besides the burgers being good too

Awesome burgers, malts, onion rings
Went here last week, for the first time, and had a great time. The burgers and shakes we had were amazing! For an appetizer we had these giant onion rings that we had to cut to eat, (but man were they worth it). The sauce they were served with was perfect! The only thing that wasn't over the top with flavor was the plain fries my buddy ordered. There were many options for side dishes, ( one of which is parmesan waffle fries), however my buddy just ordered plain fries, and they were that, very nondescript. And after eating Five Guys seasoned fries for so long, they were a little disappointing. We'll go back again! We'll just know for future reference to avoid the plain fries and do other options.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We loved everything we ordered! GREAT options...so many chocies!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great time for all!!!
Our group of three had an excellent experience at Burger Jones. The server was great, and the food was great. The prices were what we expected It was a very busy time at the restaurant, but we didn't feel hurried, and got great attention and food. Thanks!!

We visited Burger Jones for my sons 22nd birthday! I google searched "great burger places in Minneapolis" and it was a great find! We drove from Green Bay, Wisconsin and made a day in Minneapolis. All the burgers sounded awesome we read them on the menu.....yummy! Delicious burgers, awesome shakes! We will drive the 4 hours & 25 minutes again!! This burger place is a must for a great, juicy, delicious burger!!!

Burgers are great. As are
Burgers are great. As are fries and shakes. Good beer selection. Service prompt. Casual and noisy. (Skip the turkey burger!)

Best burgers in town
There are a lot of places that do burgers in town, but this one is among the best. It's always consistently good and fresh.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
The service was terrific, the burgers were great, and the fried cheese curds were fantastic. The burgers are a little pricey, but really good. I added carmelaized onions and they were yummy and plentiful. All sides are ordered separately. I will go here periodically. The place is a bit noisy because of the open atmosphere, but it's pretty typical.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Took my family out to Burger Jones and had a great time. Food was fantastic (we ordered burgers and the Try-Tower of Fries to share). Kids got malts too. Great service and good food. Reasonable prices too. Would go back.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
I thought everything went very well. Good place to eat.
