If the lines at Al's are out the door and you feel like hanging out for a bit (as opposed to eating as fast as possible because the guy standing behind you in eying your food and waiting for you to finish and get up) walk across the street

Pros: Huge portions, cheap-ish, dark

Cons: Service, lunch/dinner menu.

I've been going to the Dinkytowner for about two years now (I've lived in the Twin Cities area for a bit over two years) and there's a reason I keep coming back.

It's in a great location, but you don't have to deal with the stereotypical

Pros: Great atmosphere, stiff drinks, cheap & tasty food

Cons: Some waitstaff is under par

The Dinkytowner is dark, dirty and gross. The drink specials don't outweigh the dank atmosphere. The music is hit or miss. The service is bad. Not a place I would recommend.

The Dinkytowner is a great place to hear local music, especially hip hop & rap. The food was fine but the wait staff/bar tenders are very rude. \r

In particular 1 of the waitresses brought me the wrong food, took about 20 minutes to

Pros: Great place to support local artists

Cons: Rude staff

I love this place for the food, the music and the fun I always have when I go there. There are vegetarian options for food, all types of music from MC's to punk rock, and there usually aren't any annoying college kids getting obnoxiously

Pros: cheap cover for all events

Cons: walking far for parking in the winter!

We performed at the Dinkytowner and now I can officially say we found a stage too small for a 3 piece band. Beyond the extremely DINKY stage, this place is in the lower level below Blarney's. It's dark, and kind of small. Bathrooms are

Pros: With the right group/crowd, this place is fun, and like an New York underground club.

Cons: Parking is horrible. You have to hope to find a spot somewhere in Dinkytown and not get ticketed or mugged.

Open early, closes late... I've spent many a morning over an Irish coffee chatting with Billy the bartender about motorcycles and his mania with Jim Morrison. No windows to let you know how long you've been there. Good, stiff, cheap

Great food, music, film, people and in Dinkytown! The cheese sticks were awesome and it was a great place to go after the Library closes.
