    Voted Best Hot Dog by City Pages in 2012! If the Diamond Dog were a music act, it would be Lady Gaga- dressed to dazzle. At $9, it may be the most expensive dog in town, but it's well worth it.

    Try the red bean and rice burger! I can't stop thinking about it! Tasty and filling. Also, go for the fries! Very vegan-friendly establishment.

    Good burgers and fries. Tricky to get a table since most folks are waiting for a show to start. Be patient...especially if you're hungry.

    This is not your typical tavern. Fresh interesting food. Delicious. Turkey lettuce wraps are great.

    Vegetarian or not, get the vegan duck tacos. And if you're really hungry add on sweet potato fries with the caramelized onion ketchup.

    No matter what burger you get (and they are all good) make sure you pair them with SPF's. The Depot Tavern has amazing sweet potato fries.

    Poutine potato skins are an epic win! Also, why buy your First Ave tickets anywhere else? You get $1 in Depot Dollars for every ticket you buy.

    Great beer selection - try the Surly Furious. If you order the fried cheese curds, be sure to ask for all three dipping sauces - you'll have a tough time figuring out which is your favorite.

    Try the Diamond Dog: a quarter-pound all-beef hot dog wrapped in pepper bacon and deep fried, served on a pretzel bun. Sounds like a heart attack, but its delicious.

    The cheese curds are way too spicy. This is MN. Mild salsa is too spicy for most MN. I love spicy things but this is too much.

    I was not expecting much from a bar attached to a concert venue but the beer was at a great price and the seared steak tacos blew my mind (but not my wallet!)

    They add a surcharge to your bill if you use a credit card. This is often against the TOS agreed upon between CC companies & businesses. If you're charged such a fee, report it to your CC company.
