Being from Mobile Alabama I know a hole in the wall when I sit down and drink in one. I also think if your going to a bar "to drink" a hole in the wall is the best place to do so. When I moved up here the first thing I learned about

The Gopher Bar is sort of your iconic craphole bar, and it lives up to this standard in every way. You'll want to scrub yourself clean after touching any surface and I think the food quality is questionable for the cost, but it's a down a

right from the get go and me unsuspecting anything profane, get blasted with some degrading charmers that no one has dared to call me - ever.
It gets worse with the name calling and his prize word becoming overused. At first I wasn't sure

We hadn't been to the Gopher Bar in awhile, and we went there before heading off to a Winter Carnival 2011 event. I can't begin to tell you how disappointed we were!!! We were anticipating beefy dogs covered in homemade chili... THE WAY

The GB is a great place for its atmosphere - no question about that. And hey, the connies aren't bad. But they're over $4 each and they're the size of my index finger. Common. Its a hotdog. Everyone thinks there's some secret ingredients, etc, and it cracks me up every time. You'll eat 3 hotdogs and get a can of pop. All food comes on wax paper with plastic silverware. Not even a plate. And if you order 3 of them you'll be paying $20 after tax and tip.

guarenteed, his food cost is .25 cents for each one.

So if are looking for 3 hotdogs with meat sauce and some shreaded cheese and onions (all of which are for sale at Costco) for $20, dine on.

Sorry, had to say it.

Been a while since I went there to try the Coney Dog. I won't be back. That's for sure. I don't mind dives once in a while, but something needs to be good. Nothing was, the afternoon I visited. From what I have read on this place, the owner is arrogant to. Why give an arrogant person my $$. I gave the bums that hung around there in the 70's more then I want to give this owner. Was fun throwing a cig out the bus window and seeing the bums scramble for it. A dive and the Coneys are not good either..

Gopher Bar is NOT for the faint of heart! A true bar-fly experience, but totally worth it! The waitresses wear t-shirts that say "shut the eff up" - with the "real" eff spelled out - so it's not for kids. BEST CHILI DOGS IN THE WORLD!!!

The Gopher Bar is the kind of joint you love to go to but you don't take your friends there because they might not understand the lure of the place. It's an old dump with an extremely limited menu although they have added fish and chips and chicken fingers lately. Smoking is no longer an issue since its been outlawed. The conies and the fries are as good as you can find in this country. It's cash only so bring the bucks and enjoy a real trip.

Check your manners at the door, and leave the plastic at home. This bar is rustic and rude but serves the best coneys and the stiffest drinks this side of a Frat party. Evening menu turns into the Chili-dog nazi- We got dogs and chips!! Good thing they are fantastic. This is the home of the coldest beer and the hottest bartenders (the ladies I mean) You are liable to see the owners johnson at least once per visit if he is off duty. If you are P.C. this is probably not the place for you. If you like to do multiple shots and wash them down with more shots your home free.

Pros: Good Food, Everybody's nuts, Chicks kiss each othe

Cons: Bartenders nuts, Chicks are Nuts, Owners Nutz

Where else can you find dusty severed animal heads and tacky christmas lights all year round. The Gopher bar. Home of the best chilli dogs that Minnesota has to offer. Unfortunately that is all they offer. Still it is worth the visit.

This place can best be described as a joint or a dive. It is small and smoky and everything is well worn.

my friend turned me on to this this little joint when I came to see him from denver. now whenever we go back, this place is a must stop or the trip is a loss. we usually go twice, and the coney's are the best you'll ever have. and the buns are a great compliment. just remember to bring your cash cuz plastic and checks don't fly here. leave your worries at home and shut the ---- up it's friday. you will understand after your first visit. this place is the best.

In Short
It doesn't get more offbeat than this: there's a framed Stars and Bars behind the bar, an old-fashioned cash register and a wall-mounted rotary phone. Not to mention the deer antlers strung with Christmas lights (even in…
