In 1962, Lawrence William Yanz opened Hastings Bierstube, where he dished out German delicacies such as bratwursts, Reubens, and 6-ounce sirloin steaks. After his passing in 1983, his sons, Jim and Mike, started two new locations before forming a fourth with a family friend. The sons expanded Hastings Bierstube’s already extensive menu, introducing the Taste of Deutschland sampler platter, which features a selection of wienerschnitzel, sauerbraten, and house-made spaetzle.

Along with slinging authentic cuisine, the owners send lucky diners on vacations to Germany during giveaways, which fall on special occasions such as Oktoberfest and David Hasslehoff’s half birthday. For visitors remaining on American shores, the restaurants host weekly events, including bingo, open mics, karaoke, and live music.

Savory Jimmy stix lend a chewy twist with twirls of pizza dough brushed with butter, garlic, and parmesan, served with a cool pool of pizza sauce. End the meal with cinnamon sticks, the Jimmy stix doppelganger covered in cinnamon butter and served alongside whipped frosting for dipping or flinging at the unwanted advances of concupiscent sugar cookies.

True to the eatery's name, nearly every entree at Wyatt's Twisted Americana comes in two versions: normal and twisted. To up the flavor ante on chocolate-raspberry french toast, for instance, cooks also offer deep-fried stacks. Culinary paths diverge further during lunch and dinner, which features everything from garlic-chicken flatbread with optional hickory bacon to deep-fried, sausage-wrapped hardboiled eggs with optional chipotle hollandaise. One item, however, is left as it is: the bestselling Jack Daniels-glazed burger, which arrives topped with onion chips, cheddar cheese, and smoky chipotle ketchup.

To complement feasts, bartenders keep craft beer on tap and whip up employee-inspired cocktails like the Todd, a blend of strawberry whiskey, lemonade, and cherry juice. The bar's twist? A handful of non-alcoholic cocktails, too, including virgin strawberry margaritas and vodka frozen back into potatoes.

When Travis Dickey opened the first Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in 1941, the menu offered beef brisket, pit hams, barbecue beans, potato chips, drinks, and that’s all. By focusing on perfecting the flavors of a few dishes, Travis was able to increase quality, and, ultimately, customers. Patrons were so enamored of the food that the restaurant eventually expanded into a nationwide franchise, allowing Americans all over to wear badges made of barbecue sauce. Over the past 70 years, Dickey’s has been passed on to Travis’s sons, but not much else has changed—the quality meats are still seasoned and smoked on site, and except for the addition of spicy cheddar sausage in 2011, the menu remains the same. Regional meats ensure that the most succulent Texas-style chopped beef brisket, old-recipe polish sausage, and fall-off-the-bone pork ribs make it to tabletops. Sides such as mac 'n' cheese and green beans with bacon continue to enhance feasts with an extra punch of homestyle tastiness. Each meal comes complete with complimentary ice cream, soft rolls, and dill pickles.

From its humble origins as a soda fountain in 1930s Saint Paul, Green Mill Restaurant and Bar has grown into a franchise with more than 28 locations all over Minnesota and the Midwest. As TV screens blast sports news in the background, patrons at each eatery dine on a menu of classic American and pizzeria fare. Thick, hand-pressed burgers form bunned towers with hefty toppings such as smoked bacon, haystack onions, and chipotle mayo. Families looking to bond can practice fractions on regular, deep-dish, or thin and crispy pizzas or group juggling acts with samplers of 27 juicy wings. In addition to pastas and salads, each location's bar carries a varied drink menu that includes draft beers such as Blue Moon and Samuel Adams alongside wine, martinis, and margaritas.
