We took a group of 7 to Tonka for lunch. After reading the reviews, most people opted for the ribs. They were sensational. Lean and beautifully cooked -- delicious sauce. Another person had the BBQ pork sandwich which was also delicious. Highly recommended. We will...More

Fabulous ribs, great staff but have gotten as expensive as Famous Dave's but you don't get as many side options. I would order a full rack every time but $28.00? Who can afford that?

Best bar b que in Minnesota. Steaks are fantastic. Prices are good. GO! Easy parking in back and access from Lake Minnetonka ( they have their own dock).

We love this quiet, neighborhood bbq grill. Whether it be ribs, chicken or burgers, the food is always great. The quiet atmosphere and Kathy's cream pies are a big bonus. Highly recommend!

Hands down, Tonka Grill & BBQ turns out the best ribs we have found in the Twin Cities. They rival, if not beat, some of the great rib places in KC. Great family run place. Highly recommended.

I love this Hidden Gem. We usually go here after completing our taxes. They have a hearty meal or burgers, sandwiches, and desserts. I love the Jimmy Buffett theme menu. It's usually quiet and the service is very personal.

Then there's our STACKER, a pulled pork sandwich that speaks for itself! Our Angus Beef Steaks and Burgers are grilled to perfection and served with any of our nine homemade sides. Our dinners are served with two side choices and Texas Toast.
