About 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.

Food came out much faster this time compared to our previous visit, however the burgers tend to be a little greasy. Also, we had the same waiter as last time and the experience is awkward. He was already asking us about dessert when we were not even halfway through our burgers.

The waitress was terrific. The food was a bit over priced. The booth seating was extremely cramped. There was no room for our plates and drinks. If you're going to charge that much, it should be more comfortable.

This was our 2nd time dining at Burger Jones and the 1st time at this location. We brought my parents for their 1st visit and we all loved it. We had great service and everyone loved their food. We will definitely be back!

The food quality has really gone downhill. We also had a very grumpy wait person. I'm always a very generous tipper, but not this time. We won't be back.

We eat at Burger Jones quite often and the food and service are always spot on. Because the portion sizes are so large, we've learned to share! LOVE the black and bleu burger...and the onion rings are the best ever.

We always enjoy Burger Jones, it's so convenient for us just down the street from where we live. Beer menu is extensive with both draft and bottles craft beer selections. Food is always good, tasty and brought out timely.

Warning! This is nothing like the Burger Jones near Lake Calhoun.

It took us over an hour after we had ordered to get 3 burgers and fries, and this with the place nearly empty. The burgers were OK, not great. Sweet potato fries were hot and very tasty, the reg. fries and waffle cut fries were cold and hard.

The people in the booth behind us were also not happy with their food, as I heard the waitress apologizing numerous times to them.

The waitress was very personable and knowledgeable, but she was the only good thing about the restaurant.

No wonder it was nearly empty. We will not be going back.

We've experienced great dining in the past but this time the kitchen must have been backed up because it took more than an acceptable time to get our meal. We'll be back in hopes that this was an unusual time.

My fiances burger, and two tables nearby had complained about the burger being overdone. My fiance's was done to a crisp. One of the couples by us returned their food because there was something in it. I believe I heard the waiter say it was a cheese wrapper? And they left without getting a new burger made. Mine was good, a little too greasy but I guess that's to be expected with a burger. On the plus side, our waiter was awesome (although I can't remember his name). Overall, I would still try it again if I was in the area, but we drove 1 hr to get there and it was not worth it.

Was very disappointed by this visit. They had a private party going on and put our table right up against divider. Unavoidably spent dinner listening to the group's speaker because of how loud it was. Service was slow and inattentive. If you are going to have a party that will require extra attention - then make sure you have the wait staff available and kitchen capacity for what you are seating. Especially if someone took the time to make a reservation.

We had a confirmed reservation through Open Table, but Burger Jones - Burnsville did not have it in their system which was frustrating as I had made the reservation on Tuesday for Friday and even received a reminder from Open Table about the reservation. However, manager was accommodating and helped make it right, but had to sit in bar area where it was really noisy. Waitress was terrific and food was good. Not sure if it was Open Tables fault or Burger Jones fault on the reservation, but it worked out after all.

Made a reservation for 8 for 5:15 PM on Sunday. Not a busy time, and they tried to sit us in the bar. When we asked to sit in dining room (we had kids and we don't drink), they showed visible frustration and made us wait 15 mins to clear and out two tables together. I offered to take two booths, but they said it would be quick. The manager said I should have said not to seat us in the bar in my reservation. That's not the response I would offer a guest of mine. For the food, burger buns were dry. My burger was cheese, but barely had any. My sons double burger had more cheese, but they charge $17.55 for that! Wow. Also, you don't need fries for each burger, especially for kids, but they just ask and don't offer suggestions to share. We had 3 full orders of fries left when we were done. Their prices are nuts for the value. We have had better burgers here and better service too, but this visit was not good. Let's hope it was just a bad day for them. We will try it again, but not anytime soon. I don't mind spending money for something good. This was a lot for not very good today.

My husband and I just got into town and were looking for a place to have dinner. We searched up a place that served poutine, and had to try it! The food was great, and the service was excellent! Plus, they serve you popcorn when you sit down! Amazing!

Food was great, however being an older couple, maybe seating us in the middle of a group of families with young kids wasn't the greatest idea. The area we were seated was for the multitude of families that were dining. We do like that they have an area like that, so when we bring our children and grand-kids we would like to be seated there.
