I am not a hamburger lover and I never order one in a restaurant. But this place is an exception! They serve up a fantastic hamburger! My husband craves burgers and this is his favorite! The chocolate malt is Worth getting fat on!

I have been driving past this place every time we are in the Cities, but this time we decided to give it a try. Definitely a retro style diner. Décor is well-worn, but it goes with the theme. I had the patty melt which was...More

Burgers were excellent...great quality with just the right amount of grease. French fries are tasty and plentiful. Brewed iced tea was excellent. Service was good. But the facility needs freshening—doors and floors are worn and dirty; bathrooms need to be refreshed.

When we go to Convention Grill I enjoy the grilled chicken sandwich and my husband has a burger. The French fries are fresh and delicious.

Great burgers, malts and Fries. I always order a plain burger with extra fried (caramelized) onions and am never disappointed. The pl;ace has been around since the 40's and looks it. For non-beef eaters their egg salad cannot be beat.

I used to love Convention Grill. I raved to my friends about how good it is. We went for lunch today. The parking lot had about 5 cars in it and the restaurant was about 1/3 full. My one star is for the service, mostly....More

The prices are very reasonable for the quality of food you get. The prices on their website seem closer.
