In the mood for serious, smell-the-grills-from-the-parking-lot BBQ? Find this local gem, it's worth the drive. Tucked inside a small mixed-use building on Shoreline Drive (Cty. Rd 15), it's easy to miss driving toward Mound. Seating around 50 people (nearly all Lake Minnetonka locals) the atmosphere is low key and very casual. Local owners clearly sunk their money/attention into the food and not into ambiance... the TVs mounted awkwardly at the ceiling corners are distracting, but views of the Lake balance what's missing inside. The BBQ pork and beef ribs are substantial, with a zesty homemade sauce that is memorable. Love their BBQ pulled pork sandwich. Made from scratch garlic mashed potatoes and a hearty german potato salad are favorites. Complete dinner with the fabulous daily selection of homemade pies and deserts. The service is warm and attentive, and are well versed on the Lake Minnetonka area. Pricing is reasonable.
Pros: Quiet, Great food, Reasonable Prices
Cons: Ambiance, Not Easy to Find
