Two Places to try in the Twin Cities Region
One of the places I grew up in was MN. There were two places that were a must to stop at depending on the occasion. If Dad and I were on our way to a Twins game with friends it was The Lion's Tap in Eden Prairie. They had great burgers as well as having awesome onion rings and fries. The prices there are very reasonable too.
The second place was at the University of Minnesota near the University of MN hospital. This place was discovered by my parents when I was hospitalized at the U. They took me there when I was able to eat "real" food and was cleared to ride in a wheel chair and untethered from the IV poles. Dad and I loved the burgers move was a fan of the subs. Great place to eat they too had great fries and rings.
