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
