Great place! – The burgers and fries are really good! Love coming here when I'm in the area and my only complaint is how busy it is!
Wow – I went to the Nook with my friend after seeing it on the Food Network.. We went in the afternoon and both order the juicy lucy. It was amazing and the fries to. The burger was much better then Matts bar. I would take my out of town friends here then Matts bar.
Lived up to the HYPE! – I had heard from friends from the area that The Nook was the place to go for good food. Never bothered to try it since I'm not from the area. Saw it on Food Network and finally decided I had to give it a shot and I was NOT disappointed. My burger was one of the best I've ever had but the fries. MAN THE FRIES! Best fries EVER!!! Check this place out!!!
Best Burger Yet. – When I first looked at the outside of this small liitle nook as I was looking for a space to park I was questioning how DDD could have fit there cameras and Guy's big mouth in there. All 10 tables were full at 2 PM. Luckily the friendly patrons at the bar were accommodating enough to my brother-in-law allow us to sit next to each other taking the last two seats. The staff were very friendly. The fries were outstanding. I usually salt and need a dipping sauce. I ate half of them without ketchup. The highlight of course was the Juicy Lucy (Nookie) (Paul Molitor version).. I plan on returning with my older daughter and her fiance. I am gojing to challenge him to take the challenge with me. I want to let everyone know I got some nookie.
Best burgers hands down – These burgers have to be the best burgers I have ever tasted. The cheese inside the juicy nookies is hot and creamy and is amazing on their awesome fries! I have been there multitudes of times and if I wasn't getting married soon and had to fit into a wedding dress I would eat there every day! Their burgers are awesome as well as their fries!
Stand-UP Burgers! – Saw the place on the food network and had to check it out! I got the Juicy Nookie and it was money. If you love burgers check the place out. Don't forget to order some fries, home made and excellent! The place was a little crowded, but that should go to tell you the food is great!
It was ok – I had the Jucy Lucy and I thought it was to salty. It was Ok ,but I have had a better one at Buffalo Tap in Savage. The fries were good but mine where cold.
Best burgers in town – My fiance and I are huge foodies. We love the Food Network and saw The Nook on Guy Fieri's Dinner, Drive-Ins, and Dives, so we had to go since we were going to be in St. Paul! The burgers are amazing! I had the burger stuffed with cheese! WOW! That was a fabulous burger! Some of us ordered fries which taste like my mom's famous homemade fries, and some of us ordered their onion rings! They were so good! Their food is affordable, and a place we can't wait to go back to when we are back in town! Go there..you won't regret it!
Great burgers – The first time I went there I didn't like my burger at all. The cheese they put on top was one large chunk that didn't even melt and was rubbery. At the insistence of my husband we went again and I had the Alumni burger with american cheese, one of the best burgers I've had in my life! I only recently started eating hamburger again and this is on the top of my list! The only complaints I have is that since it's so small and packed seating is a pain and service is usually bad. One time our server actually went on break without telling us and nobody stopped by to pick up our service. We waited for 30 minutes to pay after we finished eating, never received any drink refills and had to go to the bar to pay. This bad service happened not once, but twice. The only reason I'm not giving them 2 stars is because I love the burgers!
I love it!!! – This is a long over due review! This is the best burger! The best juicy lucy (I order the Molitor). I had wondered if I was bias but my friends confirmed my opinion; better tan Matt's, 5/8, Chatterbox, Herkemier, etc. It is small and crowded (10 tables) but people line up...and they wait. My wife introduced me to this wonderful beef Mecca. I thank her for it regularly. I am sure it has been tempting to expand. Don't destroy a beautiful thing! I will be honest much of the other food is average, but the burgers! Come for the burgers and eat the burgers. They are amazing. If they know you it will only get better. I have no great list of pro and cons it is just great. Go eat.
