MSP - Hot fudge sundae?

Now I'm pondering where one finds a good hot fudge sundae in this town... and not with the icky Hershey's syrup, either. Any ideas?

  1. Izzy's or Liberty Frozen Custard would be good choices. I think Izzy makes their own fudge sauce. Liberty's toppings are top notch as well.

    1. What are you looking for in hot fudge? To me, fudge sauce that is not too sweet and that kind of conceals as it cools. LIke I had with my mother after swimming lessons eons ago. Still remember that . . . .

        Yes, that is my definition of perfect. But - I will also take the kind that doesn't thicken when cooling. Being a West Coast gal, I have great memories of Farrell's ice cream parlours, and their hot fudge was perfectly fabulous to me.

        Izzy's is very good, although I wish they'd use a little more of it. I sort of like it swimming. Must try Convention Grill!

          All you have to do is *ask* for a little more; usually works.

      2. The Convention Grill in Edina can do a hot-fudge sundae just right.

              I'd give the chocolate phosphate a go as well. When I went, they gave me free refills.

            If I recall correctly (from my long-past french-fry eating days), the Convention Grill does great fries, too. And I think that french fries go beautifully with a hot fudge sundae. Just sayin'.


          3. I hate to get "chain" on you, but Culvers is very good. The hot fudge is commercial, but paired with chocolate custard, Mmmmmm (yes, I love hot fudge on chocolate custard, if there was an option to add more chocolate I would do it) Annie's in Dinkytown gives you a little cup of hot fudge you add to your sunday as you wish. And if you are a hot fudge gluten like me, you visit the Old Country Buffet every once in a while just to stick your head under the hot fudge pump!
