The Nook is a small neighborhood bar restaurant and has been featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives at least twice as well as other food shows. Their specialty is a cheese stuffed burger (a staple in Minnesota known as a Juicy Lucy) which they call the Nookie Burger. The Nookie burger is specifically a burger stuffed with Cheddar cheese but they have a couple other variations of stuffed burgers...my favorite being the Paul Molitor which is stuffed with pepperjack. Check out their website below and then their spot on Triple D a couple years back.
The burger pictured below was a new addition called "Guy's Big Bite" which was named for Guy Fieri. Stuffed with pepperjack, topped with bacon, cheddar cheese and juicy roast beef, this actually might be my new favorite. Oh, they also make hand cut fries fresh each day which are some of the best fries ever.
The restaurant is small as you might expect a neighborhood pub to be but it has a lot of character. The people working are always nice and the service is great; it even has an old school bowling alley in the basement. This place, is probably my favorite restaurant. I hate to say that since it isn't in Des Moines but STP is my second city and every time I'm in town, I make a stop there. If you find yourself in the Twin Cities, you seriously need to find time to make a stop there even if it is out of your way, you won't regret it.
