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.

There isn't anything fancy about the sandwiches at Maverick's Real Roast Beef Restaurant?and that's the way they're supposed to be. Mpls. St.Paul Magazine praised the deceptive simplicity of the eatery's signature sandwich, saying that it "will ruin you for any other roast beef sandwich." In addition to creating open-faced sandwiches loaded with mashed potatoes and gravy, the kitchen also assembles more traditional options with pulled pork, turkey, or tuna salad. Milkshakes come in 14 flavors and various side dishes?including potato salad and cole slaw?round out the menu's selection of classic, down-home comfort foods that are great for eating on a plate and not catching with your mouth.

The year 1927 saw Babe Ruth’s Yankees dominate pro baseball and the precursor to Big Louie's Bar and Grill—Main Street Tavern—open in Minneapolis. In addition to depicting athletes from that bygone era, the Big Louie’s menu catalogs an array of traditional American bar and grill fare. From boneless wings to fish ‘n’ chips, the cuisine roster has even more depth than the famed Yankees lineup of ’27. The restaurant further establishes its entertainment value by hosting karaoke and bingo and by not allowing recitations of real-estate-law books.

Most of the items on Lakes Tavern & Grill?s menu sum up the eatery?s concept with just their description. Take for instance, the Lakes Lobster Grilled Cheese on naan bread, or the or the Cranberry Chipotle Turkey Burger. And though it?s a mouthful to say, their self-penned description??American contemporary casual upscale dining??sums up the eatery in every respect, even beyond the food.

A cobalt blue dining room sets the scene for the casual munching to commence. Spotlights embedded in the ceiling cast a comfortable light across cherry-wood tables and booths fit for parties of four. In the bar area, patrons can enjoy the luminous glow of eight big-screen TVs, each broadcasting seasonal college and professional games. On occasion, a live band will grace the stage and belt out songs. If the rabblerousing is too much for larger parties, groups of 10?12 can slip into the Lakes Lounge, where they'll find two leather couches and a 65-inch television perfect for watching footage from some other family?s vacation.

A southwestern attitude fills Woody's Roadhouse, where hand-cut steaks, rotisserie chicken, and barbecued ribs fill bellies. To match this meaty madness, servers tap 26 draft brews alongside more than 50 bottled beers, providing the same liquid succor Niagara Falls provides when on vacation in the Sahara every year. The kitchen knows its meat. The staff hand-forms burgers ground in-house from Hereford Beef, pulls pork marinated for a full day before slow-smoking it, and grills steaks over open flames or blackens them with Woody's Roadhouse's signature seasoning. Appetizers such as wings, potato skins, and fried pickles make ideal fuel for catching games on the plasma TVs or challenging tablemates to pool. In addition to preparing cuisine, Woody's Roadhouse isn't afraid to get a little boisterous: most Thursday nights, a mechanical bull and a DJ challenge guests to stump the bull with their favorite riddle, while live music and a DJ get crowds tapping toes on Friday and Saturday starting at 10 p.m, with no cover. See the live music calendar.
