Discover South Minneapolis

As one of the more affordable big cities in the country, Minneapolis will leave your stomach full without leaving your wallet empty. South Minneapolis is home to down-to-earth restaurants with Midwestern flavors, like the "Juicy Lucy," a cheese-stuffed burger that was invented in the area. You can also try a steakhouse that features farm-to-table Minnesota beef, meat pies, hot pasties and roast beef sandwiches. South Minneapolis isn't all Midwest charm as it also follows many urban dining trends. It's a hub for eclectic restaurant fare, from French to Vietnamese, brought in from the neighborhood's diverse immigrant population. You'll even find trendy vegan and vegetarian options.
