Service was a little lacking. When we finally got our order taken. The food was great. We ordered double order of their wings and a bacon cheeseburger. The wings were the best buffalo wings we ever had. The sauce was just right. They weren't dripping in sauce. The burger was on point also.

The wings are phenomenal. The wings themselves are about average, maybe slightly above average size, but it’s the sauce that makes them so good. It’s hard to pick out any aspect of the sauce that makes it stand out, other than the perfect flavor. While your wings won’t be served swimming in a pool of sauce, they definitely don’t skimp...

Runyon's has been a favorite Bar of our for over 30 Years(ouch!) I is found downtown Minneapolis on Washington Ave. While there is SO much renovation and revitalization taking place around Runyon's - Runyon's has stayed true to its beginnings! Setting - Great - Long narrow bar/restaurant, in an old brick building, w/dark wood floors, tall ceilings, poor lighting COLD... More

Went to Runyon's prior a Vikings game. We went there primarily because of the great reviews on their wings. What a disappointment. Only one choice of sauce (which we knew) but the sauce was pedestrian. The wings under-cooked and slimy, no crispness at all. At $25 for a plate of wings I was hoping for spectacular. Not even average.

Yep, the wings are great! Tangy and flavorful, and meaty as well — they don't skimp. They aren't cheap, though! This place knows what people are coming in for, and price it accordingly. Besides the wings, there's a good (if small) list of local tap beer. The bartenders are friendly and helpful. A good option for lunch or a pre-game... More

I went here a while back when I started a new job near the location. I had to take my food outside to eat it and I STILL walked away smelling like grease. This is a better place to go for a drink.

I have been here on many an occasion and rank this as the Twin Cities best wing...nuclear orange in color with just the right amount of heat and never been let down. We had a part platter of 30 and backed it up with 20 more...some of the freshest and chunkiest blue cheese I have ever had...

The wings are some of the best in the twin cities. I work close to this restaurant and can't get enough of them. The place itself has some fun photo's on the walls and offers decent television coverage for sporting events. Good for friends to meet for some decent eats!

These wings are awesome! Hands down, beat on the state. Pricy but worth every delicious bite. Nice beer selection, too.

This is a perfect get away from the trendy/busy bars and lounges of Downtown. Located in the architecturally interesting Warehouse District of Minneapolis, it's typically more quiet and relaxing for conversations with friends. The space is ideal for larger groups with booths and space to fit everyone. While they are known for their wings, I'll add that it's a personal... More
