4.5 out of 5.0 stars

I’ve been to this place quite a few times over the years. I’ve always liked their food and it’s always fun to go out and see a live band. Earlier this year, they pulled off something no bar/restaurant has ever done!

You can get Juicy Lucy’s all over the Twin Cities. Whatever you can dream up to go inside a burger, you can probably find somewhere, but I’m guessing there’s not one exactly like the Jalapeño Popper Juicy from @jerseysbar.

They’ve had a number of Juicy Lucy’s, which they call Jersey’s Juicys, on their menu for quite some time, but this one is a little special. Earlier this year, they competed in the 2019 @tcburgerbattle and not only won the People’s Choice Award, but won the Judge’s Choice Award as well. That’s the first time a contestant has won both trophies in the 6 years of the Battle! Is it that good? Yes, it is!

The beef is stuffed with pepper jack cheese and jalapeños. There’s your heat. The patty is then breaded and deep fried. Really? Who does that? Jersey’s does! The beef is cooked to a medium temp. It’s seasoned fine. It does have a crispy feel on the outside as you can imagine a deep fried burger would, but it does have some pink inside. It’s not too dry. They don’t skimp on the cheese. There are plenty of jalapeños inside as well. To cool things down a little, the patty is topped with a tasty jalapeño cream cheese. It’s a good amount, but I don’t think it was too much. On top of that, some of their delicious, signature pepper jam is poured on. That cools things down a little bit more. I don’t think this Juicy is too hot as you might think, with the jalapeños and pepper jack cheese. It’s definitely got some heat, but I think it’s a great choice for anyone, except the super mild, “Minnesota hot” palettes out there.

The bun, from Main Street Bakery, is soft, toasted and very good. After a couple bites, you are going to get cheese oozing out of this baby. I love the heat, the sweet, and the cool of this Juicy. If you want to try a double award winning burger, get out to Jersey’s Bar and Grill!

French Fries – Very good!

Pot Roast Poutine – Fantastic!

Cheese Curds – Good.
