Burger Jones

X
Pups allowed on the patio, which is open during nice weather. Here's the "About" page from the website: "Some say we turn people into addicts. Others say we're just meeting a need that's already there. You need your fix. We simply satisfy it. "And if we didn't give it to you," we could argue, "someone else would." But THAT would be a lie. Because no one can satisfy a jones for burgers like Burger Jones. We start with a custom grind of Angus beef. Then there's the expert pattying and gentle handling. The perfect sear on the flattop grill. The world's best bun, cheeses, toppings... And don't forget the rest of the menu – from the Tri-Fry Tasting Tower to the Beer Battered Cheese Curds. The Bison Burger and the Chicago Dog. The Salted Caramel Malt, the "Nut Buster" Hard Shake. Then there are the beers – a menu's worth of craft brews. Plus specialty cocktails. And our Happy Hour offerings, takeout and late-night dining. The pleasure never ends. So why not start slowly, maybe with a simple Burger Jones. As your habit develops, don't worry. We'll feed it."
