Twin City Grill: "Hidden Away in the Chaos" Top 5 Page for this destination Minnesota Restaurant Tip by DueSer

Minnesota Restaurants: 29 reviews and 20 photos

It seems crazy to have to go inside the largest mall in the country to find a quiet, cozy little restaurant and's true. The Twin City Grill is quiet and cozy but also serves delicious food. Once you get in and sit down the screaming children outside fade away and it's just you and your tastebuds (and whoever you're with, I guess, too).

The restaurant serves a loaf of bread to every table. The staff is friendly, the lighting is just right (not too dark, not too bright) and there are cute pictures on the wall about Minnesota.
They serve a variety of things - soups and salads, sandwiches, steaks, dinners (the chicken & mushrooms is LOVELY), as well as desserts, which always look wonderful but I've never actually had because my main meal fills me up too much to leave room for anything else.

I have been there several times and I always have a great meal and look forward to going back again and again.

Favorite Dish: My favorite dish is the chicken sandwich. It sounds so simple! So blah! And yet, it's a party for your taste buds.

The main thing here is the bun. A fantastic sandwich can be ruined by a lousy bun but here, that definitely does NOT happen. Besides the heavenly bun, you get a boneless breast of chicken with cheese, bacon, tomato and barbecue sauce. It comes with fries but if you're not a big fan of salt, ask for the fries plain. Otherwise they come "salt & vinegar" style, which are okay but not as good as they are without it.

Address: Mall of America, 30 N. Garden, Bloomington, MN
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: In Bloomington, just off the 494 by the airport. It's also accessible by the Hiawatha Light Rail system and most hotels in the area offer shuttle bus service to the mall. Inside, the restaurant is close to the north entrance on the first floor.
