This neighborhood icon has been there decades before the new upstarts. Their family focus and friendly service make Adrian's the most welcoming destination in the Twin Cities. By the way, Adrian's had outstanding Juicy Lucy's decades before the new upstarts.

It's easy to miss Adrian's but once you've actually been there and tried the burgers (I recommend the Juicy Lucy) you will be hooked! I've been back three times this month alone.
