I Visited The Nook, Which was Featured on ‘Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives’
There are many places in the Twin Cites to get a delicious burger, but there is one place in St. Paul that locals have been coming to for the past 70 years. And if it was featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives... I had to check it out!
Guy Feiri visited The Nook during season 2 of Triple D. The episode aired on January 21, 2008. The tiny restaurant features gourmet stuffed burgers. You can actually hear the cooks in the back cutting up fresh french fries and pounding out the burger patties.
After the episode aired, owners Ted Casper and Mike Runyon created a burger called Guys Big Bite in honor of Guy. The burger is a Pepper Jack-stuffed burger with bacon, topped with roast beef and cheddar and of course I had to try it.
The burger was absolutely delicious, but with so much going on in that sandwich, I was unable to finish off my fries. The next time you head up to the twin cities, swing on over to The Nook in St. Paul. Your taste buds will thank you!
