There are many activities that should not be performed on an empty stomach, including swimming, surgery, and swimming 30 minutes after having your appendix removed. Acquire activity fuel with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of drinks and American cuisine at Jersey's Bar & Grill in Inver Grove Heights.
Jersey's Bar & Grill tantalizes taste buds with a menu of delectable American fare augmented by an ample drink selection. Wisconsin white-cheddar cheese curds ($7.50) are dressed in modest frocks of beer batter and given deep-fried baths before showing up for their plate dates, just as the one-pound Big Mouth burger ($11.50) self-consciously hides its bald spots with applewood-smoked bacon and a cheese toupee. Juicys ($8.50) infuse the beefy structure of a hamburger with a succulent melted cheese interior, and the coconut shrimp ($12.95) is hand-breaded by cooks with kitchen-grade opposable thumbs. The menu's Americana pairs perfectly with Jersey's variety of domestic and specialty beers, mixed drinks, and wine—a sippable assortment that also goes nicely with the live music that nourishes eardrums on weekends.
Jersey's Bar & Grill
The recently remodeled Jersey's Bar & Grill serves up plates of hearty pot roast, thick burgers, and crispy chicken tenders as live country, rock, and dance bands serenade crowds. Like Garrison Keillor's alternate glam-rock stage persona "Gary Sonorous," the selection of Juicy Lucys combines a treasured Minnesota touchstone with a touch of decadence. Beef patties are stuffed with provolone, applewood bacon, or American cheese before getting topped with caramelized onions, Cajun mayo, or grilled peppers. Burger aficionados pore over the customizable burger menu, building their own creations from multiple topping, bun, and meat choices. For breakfast (9 a.m. to noon Saturday and Sunday), chow down on omelets, hash browns, steaks, and pancakes.
