If you’re into Nascar, pull tabs, beer, and puffed cheese balls, I’m sure you’d like the Cedar Inn at Cedar & 42nd in South Minneapolis.
The cheese balls are free. And, after a few beers, are they’re good enough to eat even after being dropped on the floor by people who aren’t good at catching them in their mouth. Although the thrower should share some of the blame.
I haven’t tried their burgers yet, but I get the impression that they’re pretty good (and Weezie’s meatloaf sounds good too).
The Lake Inn was where Buster’s on 28th is located. I never made it there pre-Buster’s, but the burger must have been worth saving since it has found a new home a few blocks West at the Cedar Inn.
