The Nook ~ Saint Paul, Minnesota

After our time visiting the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, we drove back into St. Paul’s to try another restaurant that had been featured on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. You are limited to street parking outside of The Nook. We actually parked on a side street and found that much easier to navigate than the main roads that run in front of and to the side of the building that houses The Nook.

The Nook is aptly named as it is quite small inside, but we were lucky enough to snag a small table toward the back where the kitchen is located. We also felt pretty important as we had Guy staring down at us from his signed poster.


Once again, we came here on a mission to try their version of the Juicy Lucy. They have several different stuffed burger options on their menu. I went for the Paul Molitor, which is a Juicy Nookie stuffed with pepperjack cheese. I’ve included both the before eating and after taking a bit photo so that you can understand the full effect of how stuffed the burgers are!

Andrew opted to try Guy’s Big Bite, which was a pepperjack stuffed burger, topped with roast beef, shredded cheddar, and bacon. Again, two photos are included so you can fully appreciate their full deliciousness.

These burgers are hands down the very best restaurant Juicy Lucy’s we have found to date. I finished mine all in one sitting because it was just that amazing. Andrew had some to take back seeing as how his was topped with quite a bit more meat and therefore more filling. We definitely plan to make this a stop anytime we are in the Twin Cities area because they were so tasty.

Guy summed it up best in his signed poster….”The Nook is off da Hook”.
