Ole Piper Family Restaurant
Really Local & Independently Owned
If youíre looking for a restaurant thatís really local and independently owned, thatís been an institution to its customers for a few decades, and that satisfies that hankering for dishes truckers pull over for, then Ole Piper Family Restaurant and Sports Bar is your kind of place.
Pizzas, burgers, fried chicken, and hoagiesóthatís our foundation,Ē says manager Travis Pioske. But donít think that means same old, same old. ďWeíre not corporate. Even though down the street is a similar menu, we strive to make ours incomparable.
Take the Bella Bleu burger, a top seller. ďItís different, itís huge. Every bite is like a different flavorful experience, with breaded deep-fried portabella mushrooms, bleu cheese crumbles and la madre sauceóthatís a tangy mayo with just the right amount of kick.Ē Or try the tender and juicy pork ribs, slow-cooked for six hours with smoked hickory flavors. ďEvery person Iíve had eat them puts them above [a certain famous rib place in the Twin Cities]; they get more and we charge less.Ē Of the 18 specialty pizzas to choose from, Travis suggests the Southwest Baja pizza with yellow, green and red peppers, Alfredo sauce . . .

A little Margarita
Goes Along Way
Nothing says summer like a margarita. And I donít care what season it is. Those sparkling drinks can lift your spirits anytime. And if you drink them at La Casita, the atmosphere will take you a long way from Minnesota. And isnít that why we go to Mexican restaurants? To escape from wherever we feel trapped? To pretend, for just a little while, that weíre relaxing in a friendly foreign country with great food, bright colors, and that icy margarita? Well La Casita gives you that and a whole lot more.
Like I said, this is the place to stop in for a margarita. The manager told me that you canít make a margarita at home with a mix the way they do at the restaurant. Strawberry and lime are the most popular but they have a total of 18 different flavors. Not surprisingly, they recommend you try the quesadilla for an appetizer. You can get them in steak or chicken. They also have a vegetarian quesadilla. The appetizers range from $4.99 to $7.49. Following that, they offer five salads, a tostada, and two soups. Iím a sucker for their tortilla soup.
Reservations are accepted.
