Anyone with an opinion or info on Obbs Restaurant in St. Paul?
I haven't ever been there -- or even heard of it until you posted. [I guess the closest I've ever been would be pedaling past during the St. Paul Classic but it's towards the top of a hill and I'm generally suffering too much to notice my surroundings.]
I see it's listed as a Sports Bar and Grill -- which could be good but often isn't...
What do you know about it and how did you find Obbs?
I have to say, I'd never heard of it till this post either... But I found their web page:
Turns out it's only about 10 minutes away from me. Not sure if it looks like someplace I need to try though. I'd be interested in hearing from anyone who's been there.
Thye do, however, seem to have Paulaner on tap, and a Hot Dago sandwich...sounds like it might be worth a trip. Report soon....
I always like looking at menus so I was perusing Obbs' and lookie here:
Deep Fried Dummies $6.95
That brings to mind so many unappetizing possibilities.
My wife and I met one of their waitstaff while dining (shall I say chowing down) at Nacho Mama's in Stillwater. We were waiting for Nacho Mama's to open for dinner (35 minutes late). She mentioned that they (Obbs) have really good blueplate specials like "hot roast beef and homemade mashed potatoes", etc. and that their steaks are very good. I cruised by the place and was not impressed but hey, it's not like I'm gonna eat the building. I'll give it a shot and report back. Hopefully I won't get knifed or shot.
