There are some great neighborhood joints in St. Paul. Bennetts isn't one of them. Its sort of a dive that is trying to grow up by putting on table cloths & linen napkins. We've been there 3 times. The 1st time, the food was great.
Our second visit, the hamburger buns were stale, the fries old and the burger overcooked.
Given our good experience the 1st time, we tried again. This time the fries were ok and the buns weren't stale. My wife got the bison burger and liked it. Someone else got the juicy lucy which was done properly. She said she liked it. I wanted a burger with pepper cheese. They had a pepper cheese burger on the menu with 2 1/2 pound patties. I only wanted one of the patties. The waitress said she would check if that was possible. When our food nearly arrived, she stopped back to say it couldn't be changed and I would have to be charged $14 for the monster burger. I took the other patty home. They didnt' have a simple cheeseburger on the menu. Seems odd. If you want a burger with pepper cheese, you have get the $14 monster burger.
We are done with Bennetts. Chop house it is not.
