I have eaten a lot of burgers in my time. I'm actually in the burger business myself. The Lion's Tap has the best burgers in the world. They are perfectly seasoned, perfectly cooked, and served hot, right off the grill. Their mushroom burger is better than any fancy gourmet burger you'll find at high end restaurants. And you'll pay just... More

It's a pretty straight forward menu, which hamburger do I want? It's a no frills place with Burgers served on small Chinet plates, french fries in a paper container. We had the single cheeseburger with fried onions and shared an order of fries - add two Pepsi's and the bill totaled around $17.00. It's a busy place but service was... More

Decent but I don't really get the hype. I have several other places that would rate higher for burgers.

Lions Tap is about great burgers, beer and soft drinks (including their own home made root beer). The menu is very simple but the food is always excellent. I refer to this place as a "joint' because while it there is nothing fancy about the surroundings, you know you can expect the basics - good food and good service at... More

Very confusing as to who your server is. Between the host and everyone who came to our table was a total of 5 different people. Very expensive. We had 2 burgers with fries and a pitcher of root bear and paid $40. So not worth it when I can go to Culvers and get bigger and better burgers

Lions Tap is a Twin Cities icon with a great story and even better burgers. What makes a burger REALLY great? A seasoned flat top and they have it here. They've turned out so many burgers over the years and they have it down right. In my opinion, it's the double cheeseburger with fried onions and nothing else. Add your... More
