Minneapolis is a foodie’s paradise
The Food Network makes frequent stops in the Twin Cities and for good reason. This metropolis offers a variety of food to make anyone’s mouth water. The Juicy Lucy (or Jucy Lucy), depending on which restaurant you’re visiting, is a Minneapolis’ staple. Matt’s Bar and the 5-8 Club both claim to have invented the delicious entree, a cheeseburger that has the cheese inside the meat patty rather than on top. While you’re visiting, why not check out both of them. They are located on the same street! Learn more about the Juicy (Jucy) Lucy rivalry here. It doesn’t stop there. Minneapolis is also home to Smack Shack’s, known for the “best lobster roll in the nation” and lobster mac ‘n cheese. Kramarcsuk’s is known for its Eastern European food and delicious sausage, while Broder’s offers fresh homemade pasta. Love dessert? You’ll want to check out the Salty Tart Bakery. See a full list of the “Best of the Best” here. With all these exciting dining options and more, you might want to stay a few days longer just to try them all!
