A well-packed burger, like a well-packed snowball, is easy to hold and doesn't automatically fall apart when hurled at unsuspecting pedestrians. Bombard your taste buds with hand-packed burgers with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two Juicy Lucy burgers and two craft beers at Jersey's Bar & Grill in Inver Grove Heights (a $30 value).
The meat mavens at Jersey's Bar & Grill cram a multifarious menu of American fare with cheese-stuffed Juicy Lucy burgers and sudsy craft beers. Savor the traditional succulence of a half-pound classic Juicy Lucy, or opt for a spicier alternative with the Cajun Juicy Lucy—a patty brimming with oozy tides of pepper jack cheese and Cajun mayo. Chefs saddle the bacon-stuffed Cowboy Juicy with strata of bacon, onion rings, and barbecue sauce for a more classic taste of the Old West than a flame-broiled spur. Then, souse overheated tongues with one of their craft beer selections, including Hofbräu Oktoberfest and Goose Island 312.
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.
