Famous for its meats (what else?), nearly everything at this dark and cozy St. Paul beef joint is locally raised. The burgers come out juicy and just the way the chef likes them, loaded with fresh lettuce, tomato and cheese and topped off with a Kaiser roll.
Spelled ?Juicy Lucy? at this 80-year-old South Minneapolis dive bar/burger joint, the half-pound Juicy Lucy here comes served in a basket with the 5-8 Club's famous fries or onion rings and your choice of molten bleu, cheddar, pepper or Swiss cheese.
Rather than compete with Casper & Runyon's Nook for the title of Best Juicy Lucy in St. Paul, this relative newcomer saw fit to reinvent the thing. The Blue Door's most notoriously tasty offering is the Juicy Blucy, a burger infused with decadent bleu cheese in place of the usual cheddar.
This award-winning French restaurant downtown offers up one of the most decadent burgers in town: A "Vincent" burger is gourmet all the way, filled with the succulent meat of braised short ribs and topped with gouda cheese.
Along with this South Minneapolis restaurant's charming Craftsman-era decor, the Craftsman is know for its burgers: beef, venison and turkey. The grass-fed beef burger comes topped with harissa and cheddar and a side of hand-cut fries and house-made chili ketchup.
