We have been to both Newt's in Rochester. One next to Mayo Clinic and one on the North side. Burgers and sandwiches were good at both places but the north side one has a bar atmosphere. Music was loud to a volume that was not enjoyable to be around. The Mayo place was comfortable and enjoyable. Either way, the food... More

The first day at the Mayo Clinic, we (probably like most visitors) found the cafeteria within the Mayo and were surprised it was so small thus crowded in serving the Mayo Clinic. Well..., we stumbled into the "Subway" and discovered path to multiple eating establishments. Newt's happened to be found top-side through the subway, up the escalators, and then across... More

We were looking for a quick lunch and walked by Newt's in the skyway. We had burgers and soda, which were very tasty. It was very busy, lunch time, and perhaps some instructions on how to order etc would have been helpful. I good lunch.

After 30 years as the local favorite they are opening two other locations to serve the growing community! Meat ground fresh every morning, funky ingredients like jalopenos and garlic mixed in and topped with pepper cheese and a spicy BBQ sauce and fresh cut fries.... Asked anybody at the Mayo where they eat, they all say you have to go... More

Best burger, HANDS DOWN. They're generous with their fries, also. Their chicken strips are delish, the style of the restaurant is great and the customer service is always fantastic. The only downfall, if you want to call it that, is that you sometimes have to wait for a while to get seated. It's because everyone loves Newt's! My favorite is... More
