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.

Great food, super service, fun location! We had family in town who wanted to meet up and this was the perfect location. The menu has something for everyone and was delicious. Our server was attentive and gave us fast, good service. And, we had a fun table by the window to take in the sights. Thanks!

Best burgers around. They have so many toppings to choose from you almost lose your burger in the toppings. The fries sometime come cold, however, they are always willing to bring out fresh fries.

We've always been huge fans of BJ but our experience last Friday was subpar. The place was freezing and the service spotty. We were served burnt onion rings. And the food, while adequate, wasn't up to the usual. Always delicious French fries were hot, but tasteless. Not sure we'll rush back.

Great burgers, great cocktails, great beer.

Perfect place for a casual date or just a dinner with friends.

It's always busy because it's so good so if you are on a schedule for the day make you to make a reservation.

Our waitress missed someones order completely, and messed everyone else's orders up. We paid above $200 but the food and service was not worth it. Burger Jones is usually our favorite burger place, but we were really disappointed this time.

One of the best burgers in town and really like their tator tots. Enjoy outdoor seating. Service average at best; below their typical standard. Could have offered tap beer suggestions and provided some value. Definitely a summer/fall spot to enjoy outdoor experience. Close to Lake of the Isles or Lake Calhoun to walk after dinner.

Portions are generous. Service is always solid/efficient. Love the make your own burger options with a good variety of sizes, add-ons. Thanks for having gluten-free options. Would be great if the patio was larger to accommodate more tables.

Great burgers -- get 'em pink, yum!
We also like the unsweetened iced tea and the crispy fries.
Very friendly server, too.

We’ve been many times before and LOVED! Hopefully just an off night: inattentive server, multiple food items and dishes served incorrect (not as ordered) or forgotten altogether. Replacements came when others at table were already finished. We had looked forward to dining here all week and planned big milkshake desserts. But we decided to cut our losses and wrapped up as quickly as allowed and took off. I’d like to say we’ll try back again some day, but I’m not sure the rest of the group will be so gung-ho to make the half hour drive. We forgot to use our parasole dining card while paying, then determined it would probably be yet another hassle to fix - we just wanted to leave. That sounds harsher than I probably intend, but you get the vibe.

Our server was training in another server - so we had amazing, upbeat service! The food was solid. Portions massive. Pretty good variety and hey, it's obviously a burger place with fun combo's and lots of choices. This was our second time dining and I'm sure we'll be back.

Food was very good! I like that there is a 1/2 bun choice and a gluten free option. We got right in at our reservation time via open table. Highly recommend doing that on a busy Saturday night! Sam was very good and tolerant with my daughter with autism. Thank you!

Their vegetarian burgers were not bad. The appetizers were good, but I didn't want to ask if the fries and/or onion rings were cooked with animal fat. The shakes were good.

One of our go-to places during the week. Unfortunately, this time around, an order was mixed up, burger came out well, when it should have been med-rare, and everyone's fries were cold, not very fresh. :(

It was too loud to hear people at my table. Food was ok. Fries were supposed to be great I heard but they’d been sitting around for a while. The best part was service — Our server was very good! Creepy wall sized photo of guy taking a huge bite was annoying to people at our table facing it.

We had a noon reservation for 8. We arrived early and the restaurant had a lot of openings. We were greeted and I informed the staff that our party had expanded to 9. Rather than placing another small table on the end we were told the only option was to add another chair at the end. It was NOT comfortable. Secondly, we had just come from the Susan G Komen Race For The Cure. I was expecting the waitress at the very least to acknowledge that and perhaps congratulate my wife on being cancer free for two years. No one on your staff said one word about the race and nothing to my wife. They also did not acknowledge Mother’s Day. That was disappointing to me. A little personalization would have gone a long way. While the food was good we will not be back soon.

The server was awful - which is very unusual for this restaurant. Usually BJ servers are so friendly and helpful. Too bad, especially as this was to celebrate a friend's Birthday. Needless to say, she'll never come back, she was shocked at how much of a pill he was. We will come back, but never want to be seated at one of his table's again, ick.
The burgers and fries were great - drinks were good. Host who seated us was very sweet, too.

We had a lovely time!
Food quality was the best it has been in many months, maybe ever. Things seem re-energized here - in the past we've enjoyed it, but recent time or two the food wasn't as good - today however food was really nicely prepared and plated, yum!
Servers here are usually great, and Seth was no exception - he treated us like royalty, made us feel very welcome and well taken care of, thanks!
