Thanks TDQ. I'm going to start paying attention to the original posts.

Didn't really look like either of those. I guess they would have to work with the building that's there though.

more Popeye's!

Went by the Lex and University site yesterday and it had a new paint job. It was kind of yellow -orange. Is that Popeye's or Pollo Campero colors? Anyone know what's going in there?

Oysterfest at Meritage Meltdown

The Summit oyster stout was the only saving grace for me. The waiting in lines and the oysters I finally got being poorly shucked with alot of shell fragments in them was no fun. The oyster po-boy sliders were very good, that line was way too long also.
It was a beautiful day and I had a good time but last year was much better.
Will not go next year.

Hot Dog Bun ??

We have been getting the bread sticks from Breadsmith for a while now. Big enough for brats and sandwiches. Cut em in half for hot dogs. They are really good.

Where are the best dill pickles in the Twin Cities?

McClure's. They have them at the St Paul cheese shop at Snelling and Grand. There is a location in MPLS also but I have never been to that one. Best pickles I have ever had.

Best Place for Mussels?

When they have them as a special, the mussels at SeaSalt were the best I've had in the twin cities. Very large portion and the fries were equally good. I can't wait for them to open for the season.

Stouts in Falcon heights

Went there for lunch the other day. Had the margherita pizza. It was just ok. With the wood fired oven I was expecting it to be better. The place has a very suburban feel to it. Ok beer selection. I work close by so I thought I'd give it a try. Don't think I'll be going back.

Restaurant in El Burrito Mercado ??

I think the food is very good. Last time I had tacos de lengua. The time before spicy tinga de pollo quesidillas. Their salsa bar is very good. You can order in line cafeteria style and the people are very nice and answer any of you questions. Or you can sit down on the side to the left and order from a waitress. I would highly recomend this place.

Blue Door Pub

I have to agree with nancyd. The Nook is totally consistent. I always get the Paul Molitor with grilled mushrooms and onions and it is the same every time, which is excellent.
I don't like the Blue Door for the reasons she mentioned. Also the burgers were cooked a bit past the way I wanted them and the tots were hit and miss. One time they were awesome the next time way under-cooked and almost cold when they arrived.
Both places are small and crowded but I'll pick the Nook.

Congrats to Meritage on its first Oysterfest

We had a great time as well. Agree about the wooden nickels. Don't like any event where you have to buy tickets or tokens for everything. We left be fore the shucking contest. Who won?

Toppers pizza St Paul

Has aynone been to Toppers in St Paul or Mpls ? We live a few blocks from the new location in St Paul. The only thing I've heard was it's better than Dominoes but not as good as Pizza Hut. That doesn't make me want to go. Plus their sign on the awning is pretty cheesy. Pun intended.

Our State Fair 2011: it's the Best State Fair in our State!

Went yesterday. The Trinidad Doubles at Harry Singh's was the best thing I've ever eaten at the state fair ever.

Groveland Tap, St. Paul, returned to its former glory perhaps?

It was overdone and the blue cheese was barely there.

The sweet potato tots were good. The bleu cheese burger was not. I agree with Brad, it used to be better.

New York pizza?

Fat Lorenzo's or Cosetta's seem to fit the New York style. If she wants a big slice that you can fold in half to eat. Does that make it "real pizza"?

border taco truck?

That section of univ. ave is now down to two lanes. Hopefully they will find a good place to park during the road destuction.

Rusty Taco

We tried to go there last Saturday, Apr 30 and got stuck in the parking lot for 15 minutes before we went somewhere else. The parking is a huge issue for this place. We live about a mile away so if it ever gets nice we can walk over. If we had to rely on finding a parking spot we proably would never go there. If you can go at an off time during the week it might be better.

Food Wars

The show didn't do much for me and the two episodes were exactly the same. One show had wings and one had beef. I'm guessing it's going be pretty much the same every week with a slightly different food. I do like seeing places I'll probably never get to but I'd rather watch Man vs Food or Triple D.

New TLC show about Pit masters

Watched it last night. A few of the contestants seemed like nice people but some of them did not. It seemed like the cook-off should have been help in a Wal-Mart parking lot.

Alton Brown's ten year anniversary show, Good Eats

Watched the whole show and it was bad, really bad. I like both Alton and Ted and was expecting much more for a 10th anniversary show.

New Jeff Corwin show Ext Cuisine

Who is your average FN vIewer?
There are several FN shows I enjoy, some I watch, and alot that I can't change the channel fast enough for. This Jeff Corwin show is such a blatant rip-off of Bizarre Foods it's pathetic. He's been to the exact same spots with the exact same people eating the exact same things. This show falls into the catagory of I'll watch it if I absolutely can't find anything better on.

Good Pad Thai? (MSP)

I've given this place a number of tries and the Pad Thai has never impressed. It's very mild and no heat no matter how hot you order it. Also I feel kind of cheated by the amount of proteins in their dishes, a few more pieces of chicken or shrimp don't cost anything. I had a pumpkin and shrimp curry around Halloween that was fantastic though.

Heggie's Pizza (MSP)

I was reffering to the Heggies. No confusion I hope.

Heggie's Pizza (MSP)

Picked one up at a convienence store in St Paul because it looked really good. It was what I would call expensive for a frozen pizza at over nine dollars. I know it would be cheaper at a larger store. My problem was it was so salty that after one piece I had to drink alot of water and could not eat another bite. I hope this was a fluke but don't think I would risk it again.

LOL! So I gather Anne Burrell is leaving us all speechless?

Her food looks really good but her manly grunts and use of earl has gotten old quickly. Maybe the mute button is the way to go.
