#4 Mesa Pizza


Yelp Rating: 4 stars

Why people love it:

Dear Mesa Pizza,

You have helped me sober up, feel better during post-adolescent emo times, hide from creepers, run into awkward people, and just generally nourish my need for American soul food on so many occasions.

Your staff is always nice to me and more than willing to accommodate my pizza urges. Your unconventional toppings have never ceased to amaze me.

But more than this, Mesa, you are consistently delicious and unpretentious. You might be a college-kid heaven and full of every weird/bearded walk of life, but you don't care. You're just serving up some pizza and trying to keep the rabble to a minimum.

Even though you are pretty far from me now, I still plan on tipsily stumbling into you whenever I am in Dinkytown.

#13 Annie's Parlour

Yelp Rating 3.5  stars

Why people love it:

I LOVE this place. I lived in Mpls for two summers, specifically in Dinkytown, and this is my go to spot for great food.

My recommendation: Skip Five Guys & go to one of the best places to eat in the area! By far one of the best burger joints in Southeast Mpls.

Burgers = AMAZING
Mozz sticks = DELICIOUS
Fries = YUM

Cute for a date as well, they have an outdoor patio.
