    Well deserved. Kramarczuk's is a sausage institution.

      That is fantastic, and such an awesome nose thumbing at the idiotic Panera-Chipotle-fication on E. Hennepin.

        Not only are the sausages top notch but their bakery ranks right up there too. I couldn't think of getting some sausages to grill without picking up a pack of buns too.

          Are there grocery stores in the Twin Cities that carry their sausages?

            No, you need to go to their store:

            I find their sausages to be fantastic and the bread they make on site to be delicious (especially the carraway rye). I struggle driving there though when Hackenmuellers is a mile away from my house.

            Glad they got some recognition, and here is to hoping they have a long standing tradition that isn't just history.

              Well deserved. I also agree on the breads as well. I now get glares from my crew if I don't have both sausages AND buns from K in the summer for grilling.

                I love the Kramarczuk meat counter. The restaurant not so much. I think it's not bad, but it's not been consistently good. Some visits the sausages were so overdone that it was like sawdust in a casing.
