After noting the superlative rating for this place, my husband and I decided to check it out. We were marooned in a desolate area of Brooklyn Center with wide swaths of empty parking lots and shuttered stores in view of our hotel. Little to do in the way of activities and bereft of typical places... read more

We visited the 50's Grill to reunite with high school friends my husband hadn't seen in years. I thought it would be a theme restaurant with average food. I was so wrong! It was a theme restaurant that had excellent homemade food. I had the lunch special open faced turkey sandwich - it was excellent. A nice size portion that... More

First: there is nothing bad to say about this place. After a short wait for seating we had one of the most enjoyable meals of our trip to the metropolitan area. Food was great, staff was wonderful, the ambiance with all of the 50's decor was wonderful. We will definitely go there again.

As oldest member of our group of a couple adults and a gob of grandkids, I start with the warning: Share. Little kids can't possibly finish the huge servings and the shakes/malts come with a big glass already poured and that much again still in the cold, metal cup used to stir them. Share. Share the onion rings that are... More

Had a Friday evening meal here. We were surprised there were beer and wine options. I had the chardonnay and my co-diner had a Summit beer. Both were fine. I ordered the Cajun grilled chicken with a side salad. The side salad was iceberg lettuce, ripe sliced tomato, a few sliced radishes and threads of red onion. Iceberg is very... More

I went in for lunch for a classic dining experience and I got it. The cheeseburger, fries, and shake were great. The shakes are big enough for two people. My server was really nice, I felt like I was a kid again and over at a friend's house with a different mom serving me yummy food. I would like to... More

If you like real, (not fast) food and you like malts, this place is incredible. Had a turkey dinner which was quite good. Lots of burgers and other similar food available. But this restaurant may have the best malts in the Twin Cities...about 20 different kinds of offered, far beyond the traditional. (please see pictures for the malt menu). I... More
