This place is so historically awesome, you must visit! But know what you are getting I too. 1) It is greasy diner food, don't expect something healthy. That is what makes it great. You get what is classically served in 50s, which is awesome!! 2) Parking is a problem unless you go on a weekday in between breakfast and lunch... More

Very good food, fun ambiance, but it's very small and cramped inside. Fun with kids as it's a train car.

This is a very small place. The food is decent. Service was good, quick, and polite. Usually difficult to get in - IF YOU CAN PARK.

I go here a few times a year. Great breakfast food. But don't expect a sterile environment or over-bubbly service. My favorites are the blueberry pancakes and the sausage patties.

It was fun to finally be inside the historic Mickey's Diner, but we were first ignored sitting at the bar right next to the coolers and "cutting" prep area, both were totally nasty and filthy. Then, we moved to a table which was more comfortable and it was nice to not see the mess anymore but we were again ignored... More

After a conert at Mpls First Avenue, a traditional 1:00a.m. jaunt to the original Mickeys always is entertaining. Service was very slow when we arrived. Our group of 6 filled tbe back of the place, the waiter did not show up for a good while, the cook only taking orders from the counter. Our usual orders of Potatoes O'Brian and... More

This is everything you expect. It's tiny, it's greasy but it's super tasty! We went before a Wild game so it was pretty busy but such a great time just to watch everything going on behind the counter. I feel like this diner is a step back in time, and would say as long as your ok with the Chef... More

There is dissent food for a dissent price with no BS service. I hade great pancakes and better eggs and coffee then the one served... More

After coming to Minneapolis for 20 plus years this is the first time I have visited this place, It was a sham it was our last day in the states other wise I would have had their BLT every morning. Best BLT ever!
