Curds and fries good too! Low key 🔑 neighborhood atmosphere. Bowling downstairs. Good group meeting spot. Unofficial Deals and random discounts for regulars. Parking can be a challenge at times...

Did you mean motels? If so, not close. It is located in the Highland, Macalaster area of St Paul across the street from Cretin High School.
