#2 Al's Breakfast


How They Got Here:

Yelp Rating: 4.5 stars

Why people love it:

I am not exaggerating when I say that this was THE BEST breakfast I have ever had at a restaurant. My family and I waited in line for two hours to eat but it was worth it.


All in all, I wish I lived next door to Al's. I would definitely return and wait two hours to eat it all again. Make sure you bring someone who is patient and loves to talk to wait with you!!

Yelp Review:

I love this place, every time. It's cash only, so be prepared.

They have a Somali-inspired burger with peppers that is incredibly good. Enough heat to counter the MN winter outside.

The hand-cut fries are wonderful, slightly spiced, piping hot. Unlimited soda refills are always a nice touch.

The dogs are awesome. I have yet to try a tofu dog, I'll get on that. I'm sad they aren't open later as well, but Pat has three kids under 10 years old, so he has to be home in the evenings by bedtime. I think that's a great reason for an early closing time.

Go, eat, and be happy.

Because, WIENERY.

Nice hole in the wall on the West Bank. Great selection of dogs in many styles and flavors. Never had their breakfast myself but hear it’s solid. 
Gotta love the "was in jail" bracelets post drunk tank on the walls (with pics if I recall?). 
Don’t come too early on Saturday as their hours listed on the website are "10-ish-8pm…"
