Triple D Diners in Minnesota
Are you a fan of Guy Fieri and Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives? I am! I absolutely love that show and I love Guy Fieri. In fact, a few years back when Guy was on the front cover of the menu at T.G.I.Friday's Restaurant, I talked the waiter into letting me have one of the menus. Hope the waiter didn't lose his job because of me! Anyway, have you ever wondered where all the diners and dives are located? I did a search and found a list at diners, driveins and dives. Once there, you can search by state to find all the great stops Guy has made. There are 39 listed for Minnesota. A couple of them caught my eye:
Kramarczuk's in Minneapolis. Their claim to fame is Eastern European fare featuring Polish sausage, cabbage rolls, polish rye bread, and poppy seed bread. Perhaps Jerry Seinfeld and Elaine should visit Kramarczuks for their chocolate babka!
Smalley's Caribbean Barbecue and Pirate Bar located in Stillwater. Their menu is quite interesting, offering chocolate rum pudding, ropas viejas sandwich, chicken wings and curried goat. They also have an extensive gluten-free menu.
Prairie Dogs Hot Dogs and Handcrafted Sausage, Minneapolis. This place sounds totally awesome! Try their jumbo all beef natural casing Vienna hot dogs, sausages, backyard brats and sides including deep fried pickles.
Have I made you hungry yet? Other locations in the Twin Cities area include Al's Breakfast, Psycho Suzie's Motor Lodge, Emily's Lebanese Delicatessen, Pizzeria Lola, Surly Brewing Company and Red Wagon Pizza Co. Why not plan a weekend get away. Check out the locations website, grab a map and hit the road. Let us know which places you visited and how great the food was. Bon appetit!
