    The deep fried smell as you approach the building will draw you in. The ground cow stuffed in its mothers own curdled milk will keep you coming back.

    Another great Matt Birk burger! Always a highlight of any business trip to MSP. The fries are outstanding also! Taryn is a great bartender/ waitress!
  • Jeremy L.
    Hand-battered cheese curds are gooey and delicious. House made fries with their seasoning and chipotle ranch is a must. Killer happy hour. Smoky BBQ wings were rather tame. Still, very awesome
  • The Product Poet
    Try the cheese curds and definitely go downstairs. There is more seating and a bowling alley.

    Jucy Lucy's upstairs. Bowling downstairs. Make a reservation for some bowling or be prepared to wait in line on the weekends. Oh and the beer list is top notch.

    Juicy Nookie is great, waffle fries are thick and meaty. Head downstairs to the bsmt bowling alley for less noise than main level.

    Finally checked this place off the list. The Jucy Lucy's were delish, but the hand cut, crispy fries also deserve a shout out.

    The juicy nookie is the best burger. As good as the Matt's Bar version, only with a better atmosphere around you. It's only cooked to medium though, so don't order it if that isn't ok with you.

    Food is great here, but Shamrocks has the same menu - run by the same establishment - served in a space with far more seating. Why wait +1hr for a Paul Molitor when you can get the same 2mi away?

    A few different varieties of "Juicy Lucy's", I got the Paul Molitor and it was great, fries are awesome too. I wouldn't put the Juicy Lucy above Matt's but definitely better than 5-8.

    Burger was ok had a juicy Lucy but they forgot the cheese. Slow service waitress never came back to ask how food was so was stuck with a non cheese filled juicy Lucy. Fries and malt were good.
