This is not a gourmand's delight. But it is good comfort food. Curran's has been on this corner by the park for well over 50 years. It's a neighborhood institution. A wide menu of breakfasts, sandwiches, salads, burgers, entrees and sweet pies and other delicious pastries. Parking in their adjacent lot and on the street. Just fine for children's food... More

We happened upon this place and decided to try it. It is an old time drive-in from 1948 with an interesting story. We wanted fried chicken, so we tried theirs and it was wonderful. The service was quick. They offer daily specials which beg us to return and are inexpensive. We took home a piece of Banana Cream Pie and... More

Standard family restaurant comfort food, served with enough grease and salt to satisfy the masses. A long way from fine dining, but nonetheless a local institution that has a passionate clientele and offers a good value.

Came here twice for breakfast while in town for a convention. The $2.49 breakfast can't be beat: 2 eggs, 2 pancakes and potatoes. (before 0830) More than enough food for most people. I recommend the fried potatoes rather than the hash browns . The biscuits and gravy is made with Italian sausage and is delicious. The pancakes are thick and... More

Peerless diner food and atmosphere. 1000 times better than the chains. Come here a couple times and the wait staff will know your order!

This is a Minneapolis institution, ostensibly since 1948, so my wife and I thought we'd try breakfast there. Not sure why it has such a reputation. The service was unremarkable - slow even - and my omelette was smallish and runny (not something I requested). The hashbrowns so lacked flavor that I left them entirely alone after my first two...

This was my first time to dine at this restaurant. Spotted it while driving past and delighted to have done so. My wife and I enjoyed freshly prepared and tasty items from. It was a bit of a challenge to choose from the menu since there are many interesting selections. Hope to return on a future visit to the city.... More
