This burger shop features a takeout counter upstairs and a casual dining room on the lower level. Our favorite of the speciality sandwiches is a locavore spin on the Juicy Lucy—a Minneapolis burger variant cooked with cheese inside the patty rather than on top. The handsome one-hander boasts prime ingredients, like a proprietary Pat LaFrieda rib blend, a seeded Blue Ribbon bun and crunchy McClure’s pickles, along with an added Southern twang: a gooey pocket of pimento cheese bubbling away in the medium-rare center.

Easy, no fuss burger place. Don't let the small front fool you - there's also a basement with more seating! This is on a bunch of TONY lists for best burger and they are great!! The fried pickles are the bomb, as are the french fries (regular AND sweet potato!). I ordered the Spicy Patty and it was fire. YUM.

Go for the Juicy Lucy's and fried pickles!  Note, you can get a slight deal on restaurant.com so head there first!
