“Best Rib's Anywhere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Cap's Grille serves the best BBQ pork and beef that I have ever enjoyed. I usually order their babyback ribs, but this time I tried their grilled salmon. I was not disappointed! It was cooked to perfection and I ate every bite. My finicky teenaged daughter ordered their BBQ brisket and ate almost every bite. The serving was too generous for her and she decided to enjoy it another day and took the rest home. My wife loves pork chops and Cap's served the best chops on the planet, almost better than the pork chops she prepares. Whew, squeezed by that one! All in all, we enjoyed our family night out dinner and we will happily return again, and again

“Top notch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Never a disappointment. Very friendly staff, quick service, great food. Love the chops and like going to breakfast there. Wife loves the pulled porked and barbequed chicken, Kids love just about everything. Good location to LRT and on the way to downtown for Twins, Wolves and Vikings games. Easy in and out along Hiawatha.

“The Only Place to Go for Ribs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

I have often told the owner that Caps' ribs are better than the famous BBQ chain nearby. Their food is consistently way above average and the portions are enough to enjoy another day. I happen to love leftovers. Service is good and the menu will satisfy any culinary taste. While all of their offerings are excellent, I am almost always seduced by their amazing ribs. Enjoy!

“Eat Here.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012 via mobile

If you want a quick simple meal this is the place to go. There's not much to the menu, but what they do have is worth the money.
