Huevos Rancheros "of the Gods"
Gluten-free upon request. A crisp flour tortilla layered with buttery hashbrowns, spicy black beans, soft-scrambled eggs, and a 3-cheese blend baked to a golden brown. Called "Huevos Rancheros of the Gods" by roadfood.com. Topped with hand-chopped salsa and sour cream.
These are the award-winners that put us on the map. Three melt-in-your-mouth hotcakes made with fresh lemon zest and ricotta cheese. You can get them with fresh berries and pure maple syrup, but try your first bite without the syrup!
Mac & Cheese
One of our favorite comfort foods on the planet: Cavatappi noodles with a special blend of cheeses including a hint of pepper jack

Great place - go find out for yourself, you won’t be disappointed!
Thank you for your kind words and your recommendation; it means the world to us and we can't wait to serve you again next time you find yourself in our neck of the woods!
The food and service is unparalleled, we were seated exactly at my reservation time, the server was knowledgeable and quick with suggestions but I opted for my standby sausage bread and homemade peanut butter as an appetizer and Lemon Ricotta hot cakes as the main course accompanied by the masterpiece Bloody Mary served with a dill pickle slice and sausage link stirrer and a lager sidecar. The cinnamon roll, Eggs Benedict and the French Toast should not be overlooked. Don’t forget to bring a jar of peanut butter home.
Amazing as always!
Thank you for your kind words and continued support; we hope we can show you another amazing experience next time you're in the area!
Waiter was awesome! Knowledgeable, funny, friendly! Amazing food, great variety. Neat setup of restaurant.
Thanks so much for visiting and for sharing your kind words about our menu, our restaurant, and our employee-owners. We hope to serve you again in the future!
Mediocre place. Went there for dinner but they only have 4 items on the menu for dinner unless you want a burger or waffle. Not the place to go for a special occasion. Had an appetizer of cheese curds which were good. Overall I would go somewhere else which we did. Went to the steakhouse across the street. Way better!! They require a credit card to make a reservation which was stupid IMO as there was only a couple others there. Not worth it. Go elsewhere.
Thank you for visiting, although we're dismayed that you didn't stay for your whole meal! While it's true that we're not looking to offer a high-end steakhouse experience (we made our name on the back of our breakfast and brunch), we're thankful that we do have many guests who return to us for their special occasion dinners. We're happy that you found a dinner that worked for your special occasion, even if it wasn't with us, and we hope you'll give us another shot during our famous brunch!
The staff at Hells Kitchen are top notch. The food is pretty amazing too! Our server was kind and attentive. The bartender was amazing!
Thank you so much for your kind words and compliments, especially about our staff--whether they're cooking your food, mixing your drinks, or bringing it all to your table, our employee-owners are what make Hell's Kitchen great. We hope we get the chance to serve you again in the future!
Great experience. Food was delicious and Nate was a great server. We enjoyed our experience and highly recommend. We were there on a Friday for brunch.
Thank you for visiting and for sharing your kind words! We're so glad you enjoyed the food and received great service from Nate (we actually have a few servers named Nate, and they're all wonderful members of our team). We hope you'll consider returning next time you're in the area!
Great food. Great service. Great ambiance. Best Bloody Mary's! A must to go to when in Minneapolis!
Thank you so much for your kind words about our food, service, ambiance, and more! We're thrilled to have your recommendation and we hope we get the chance to serve you again next time you're in the area!
We went for breakfast and it was delicious. I can’t wait for the Bloody Mary bar to open back up.
Thank you for visiting and thank you for your kind words! We can't wait to be able to safely open the Bloody Mary Bar again, but we're glad to hear you had a great breakfast regardless. Hopefully we'll see you again soon!
We sat right beside the door to the kitchen, so that was pretty annoying. We made a reservation the day before going and when we got there, they said they couldn’t find our reservation. They said they found it after we had already eaten and told us they would’ve put us at a better table if they knew it was our anniversary, which we stated on our reservation. The food was okay but wasn’t as good as we imagined.
Delicious and unique porridge. Great caramel pecan roll.
Thanks for your kind words and for visiting our restaurant. Our porridge and caramel pecan roll have been guest favorites for nearly two decades, and we love hearing that they're still pleasing diners. We hope we get the chance to serve you again in the future!
It was a nice experience. I would come again and recommend to others.
Thank you for visiting and for giving us your recommendation; we're thrilled to hear you had a nice experience and hope we get the chance to serve you again!
Got exactly what we expected. The best food. Unique menu. Amazing cocktails. And fantastic service. It’s a must anytime we come to Minneapolis.
Thank you for your very kind words and your continued support--those that return time after time and help spread the "gospel" of Hell really are the key to staying afloat in a tough industry like ours, and we can't begin to show our support. We can't wait to serve you again next time you're in Minneapolis!
2nd visit to Hell's Kithen and I'll be back for a third w next trip to Minneapolis. Food and service were great as I've come to expect.
Thank you for visiting us (again) and for sharing your kind words; we look forward to serving you again next time you end up here in MPLS!
Unbelievably great food. Everyone in our party was beyond pleased. Also had live music which was fantastic. Bloody Mary's were outstanding. The staff was great, responsive and fun!
Thanks so much for visiting and sharing your review; we're thrilled to hear you had such a great brunch. Between the energy in the room, the live music, and the food we're serving, Brunch is one of our absolute favorite times to be open, and we hope to see you again in the future!
Food was good, not sure if service was slow due to lack of staff.
Thanks for visiting and sharing your experience--we're glad you liked the food, although we're sorry that service was slower than anticipated. Almost all restaurants are experiencing staffing shortages right now, but we do try our best to structure our staffing so that service never suffers. If you have any more info you'd like to share with us, we always appreciate constructive feedback, and we hope you'll consider giving us another shot in the future!
We went for brunch and had the Bloody Mary, Bison Waffle and Country Friend Steak Waffle. The bloodies were awesome. The bison waffle was ok but over priced. Ultimately it didn’t seem like there was much bison. The Country Fried Steak had an unappetizing texture and was disappointing. Also, they included a 15% service charge that they said was not the tip and was not stated until after the meal, on the bill. That seems misleading and I would have preferred they were upfront with that.
Thank you for visiting and sharing your thoughts, both about what you enjoyed as well as what you felt could have been improved. Our waffles are still relatively new menu items and honest feedback helps us make sure that every single one comes out just right. As for the service charge, we do our best to inform diners of the service charge up-front, which is why it's clearly labeled on our website, our online ordering platforms, our online menus, and our physical menus.
We were seated in the dining area to the left if the host stand. It was a very comfortable and quiet space. The brunch offerings were many and delicious! Charlie was an excellent server and made sure we had everything we needed for a wonderful dining experience.
Thanks so much for coming in and for sharing your experience; we're so glad to hear that you had a great brunch experience and we hope you'll consider returning in the future!
Great food, great service. Always a pleasure to dine there.
Thank you for your kind words and continued support; seeing people returning time and time again (especially after COVID) means the world to us, and we can't wait to serve you again.
Our meal was excellent as usual. My only concern was how close our table was to the table just above us on the raised area. They were so close it felt very uncomfortable given Covid.
Thanks for the kind words and the constructive recommendation! We're glad you had a great meal, and we're trying to be as safe as we reasonably can with covid. Most of our feedback about covid safety has been incredibly positive, and we want to keep every guest feeling safe, so your our honest feedback will help us ensure that everyone who comes into our restaurant feels at-ease and comfortable.
Excellent experience. Enjoyed the live entertainment. Great food and attentive service. Thanks
Thanks so much for your kind words about our food, service, and live music. We appreciate you coming in and hope we get the chance to serve you again in the future!
Great place for Saturday morning breakfast.
Thank you for visiting and sharing your kind words; we're happy to hear you had a great breakfast and hope to serve you again in the future!
Great food and service- fun atmosphere
Thank you for visiting and thank you for the compliments about our food, service, and atmosphere. We hope you'll consider returning next time you find yourself in our neck of the woods!
Amazing food and great service! Not sure if it's always that quiet, but would have enjoyed a band. Perhaps we were too early in the night.
Thank you for visiting; we're glad you enjoyed the food and service! Pre-COVID, we would have bands play on our stage every Friday/Saturday during dinner and Saturday/Sunday during brunch, but as we slowly scale back to normal, we're currently only offering live music during those weekend brunch services. We do hope you'll consider returning, especially during brunch as that's when our restaurant is truly at its most lively!
I love Hell’s Kitchen, especially their Juicy Lucifer burger! However, all of their sandwiches are good. Lots of appetizers to choose from, including Walleye Nited.
A Minneapolis staple!
Thank you so much for your kind words about our food and our restaurant; we've been around for nearly 20 years now and it still surprises us (in a good way!) to hear someone refer to us as a "MPLS Staple." It's always a compliment when people say our food has continued to impress, and we can't wait for a chance to serve you again in the future.
I didn't like the food. Would not go back again.
Thank you for visiting and sharing your thoughts about our restaurant. Obviously we're sad to hear that you didn't enjoy the food, but we always respect honest opinions and always use detailed feedback to help ensure everything is running smoothly and our food remains "damn good." If you have more details about your experience that you'd like to share (such as when you visited, what you ordered, and how you felt it could have been improved, we're all ears!
Overall it wasn’t a terrible experience considering that they’re short staffed due to COVID. We ordered the Huevos Rancheros which were delicious, however, I gave the food a 3/5 because my mom ordered the Caesar salad and it was terrible. There was WAY too much anchovy paste in the dressing that it tasted like old fish. She couldn’t even get through it.
Thank you for visiting and sharing your feedback, both about what you enjoyed as well as what you felt could have been improved. It's true that our Caesar Salad dressing is more anchovy-forward than many, but it should never taste like "old fish" and we'll bring your feedback to our kitchen to ensure that we're getting that delicate balance of flavors just right. We hope you'll consider returning in the future!
They have really gone down in taste and value. The drinks were average at best and the the food was okay. They made people wait 25 minutes for a table, yet there were more empty tables than seated. Most be help shortages. Last time I’ll go back. Sorry HK, but I’m done
Thank you for your candid feedback and for returning to our restaurant! Our employee-owners work incredibly hard to make sure that we're providing food, drinks, and service that are as good today as they were when we opened in 2002, and we're dismayed to hear that your recent experience didn't live up to that ideal. If you have more details to share, we always love to hear honest feedback and use it to continuously improve.
Hell's Kitchen is a festive place to dine and the wait staff are excellent. The food is well prepared and tasty. Beware the hellish pictures in the bathrooms which can be a bit unsettling, but maybe it was because it was also a night with a big thunderstorm going on outide.
Thank you for your kind words; we're glad you enjoyed your experience even if the Hellish pictures were maybe a bit spookier than usual given the storms outside. We hope we get the chance to serve you again in the future!
Ate for a fun business lunch. Hell's Kitchen never disappoints. Food is unique an flavorful and the atmosphere is energizing and entertaining. Service is good; everyone is pleasant and helpful. But, the food is top notch!
Thanks so much David! It's always an honor when people choose us for a business lunch--we know how important it is to be able to have great food, attentive service, and a fun (but not distracting) atmosphere when you're doing business, and it means the world to us to have that type of support. Hopefully we get the chance to serve you again in the future, whether for business meetings or just for fun!
We enjoyed all the Minnesota food, poutine, walleye and wild rice porridge, very tasty…thank you
Thanks so much for your kind words and for visiting our restaurant. We do try to showcase MN cuisine and we're thrilled to hear you enjoyed it; hopefully you'll consider returning next time you're in our neck of the woods!
