Al's breakfast! If I remeber right its in dinky town.

Like I mentioned in the other post the nook is good!

Its Dari-ette, which is next on my list!

I haven't made it to physcho suzi's yet either!

There is a drive-in in brooklyn park or center right off 694 that has been mentioned on the splendid table and by Andrew Zimmerman (on his talk show not Bazzar Foods!). grin Every time I have driven by it has been closed but one of these days I'll make it.

He does have a good talk show and Bazzar Foods is pretty fun to watch as well!!

They where on some of the first episodes. All of them have been on one time with the exception of Psycho Suzi's which has been on twice.

Tried to make it to Dari-ette twice this weekend with no luck!

Suzi's been on there twice because of all the tattoos. Other places let's see Mickey's Diner, Matt's Bar, Rooster's, Scott Ja-Mama's or Ted Cook's you have to focus more on the dives here since there isn't much for diners or drive-in's. I will have to think about this one now thanks a lot grin

I've been to mickey's a couple of times and although its fun to go because of the history, I haven't left thinking to myself that was really good! Don't get me wrong, it has good food, great history, and fun atmosphere. I just don't know if it is really good?

"Matt's Bar, Rooster's, Scott Ja-Mama's or Ted Cook's", are those in Minnesota?

Matt's Bar has a world class juicy lucy the original before the nook. It's a little tagboard menu with mostly the best burgers a true dive bar menu. Rooster's is right off Randolph in St. Paul try the pulled pork phenomenal, Scott Ja-Mama's and Ted Cook's are both in Minneapolis and have great barbecue. Just look at Matt's Menu and you will know it's a dive. Matt's menu

Scott Ja-Mama's is good stuff. I go there every once in awhile for lunch. You gotta get there by 11 or so if you want to eat at one of their 2 tables. You can't beat a huge bbq beef sandwich, slaw, twice baked potato, chips and a coke for $6 bones.

Good BBQ is always tops on the list! I'll definitely try to get to those in the future.

Well I have not heard it mentioned on the show but there is a great old fashion drive in in St Louis Park called Wagners. It is just off hwy 7 and about Quebec ave. They actually hang the tray on the window or you can sit at one of many picnic tables. If you like old fashion drive inn's this is the place.

A dive/diner that I have not seen mentioned is "Our Kitchen" just off 36th street and bryant ave in South Minneapolis. It is very small with mainly counter seating. I have been eating there for over 30 years. The man that origionaly opened it died about 15 years ago but his grandson Dan who has worked there since he could see over the counter has owned and ran it ever since. Fridays they serve a full HOMEMADE Turkey dinner. Hmmmmm Get there early though because they sell out. Good Eating!!

Made it to the Dari-ette for lunch today. The boys had the corn dogs (money! grin) and I gave the spaghetti and meatballs a chance and washed it down with a vanilla coke. The meatballs where just like grandma used to make, seriously! I'll be back for sure!! I think the best thing that I saw on the menu was a soft serve cone with crunch coat! Who has crunch coat anymore? Thats probably one of my favorite childhood treats!!

    • Is this public land where the thefts are occurring?  
    • Little update: water temp. is hanging around 64-67 right now. A lot of the thick milfoil mats are starting to turn brown. The great fall bite is getting ever so close! 
    • He's outside the political box but kind of like Hillary, a lot of the country hates them or doesn't trust them and really why would they? Seems like now more than ever would be the year for a 3rd party to step up but with this 2 party monopoly and 2 party media we won't get an honest answer until the votes are counted. A long shot for sure but things are shaping up nicely for a lot of people to jump to a 3rd party.
    • Picked up a couple decoys this weekend
    • Step 1 go to your bathroom. Step 2 turn on the light. Step 3 walk in and look in the mirror.
    • On sale is good but since I would have to carry them in and set the up opening morning I don't want to haul a piano in there. We have hunted this spot for about 18 years without seeing a person, now it's getting hard to trust the area.  We think it may be a local that comes during the week with a bolt cutters and cuts the lock cables. Kind of suks.  Will head over to Fleet and check them out. Thanks.
    • I buy whatever is on sale, but dont much care about portability or weight.  Just got some big game 32" sticks for $13 each at farm n barn.  They work fine for my purposes.
    • We had a good opener in Ashby! Kids shot a lot and even got a few  If adults would have been shooting it would have been limits of teal and possibly even some divers. Kids got to drive the trucks around the farm, shoot .22's, shoot some trap and even learned how to row a boat and retrieve ducks, and also how to pick up and wrap decoys. Saturday we saw lots of ducks and had the teal coming right into the decoys perfect. Sunday was not nearly as many ducks and the ones that did come just buzzed us. Had to leave at 8:30 due to kids sports in the afternoon. Great weekend!
    • I'd like to see your definition of "elitist", by the way. Gary Johnson and the Libertarians are not Trump's problem.   He has the same problem as Hillary - himself.
