Dari-Ette Drive In

Map & Directions 1440 E. Minnehaha Ave.
St. Paul, MN 55106
  • No Parking


City Pages' Description

You know life is extra sweet when you find yourself eating spaghetti in your car at one of the few remaining old-school drive-ins in the area. Complete with a vintage neon sign, the Dari-Ette is a beloved piece of St. Paul’s East Side’s history, once featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Sure, you can get a classic burger, onion rings, or shake here, but what makes the Dari-Ette extra special is that the restaurant is third-generation, Italian-owned and operated, which is where the Italian specialties like spaghetti and meatballs or hot dago sandwiches come in. In October, before the Dari-Ette closes for the season, it’s also fun to witness the crowds pulling up to purchase the gallons of spaghetti sauce that will help get them through the long winter.

Tips from foursquare

  • Heavy Table on 05/10/10

    The Hot Italiano is a Vienna bread sandwich with a spicy but not-too-dense split Italian sausage and an almost Sloppy Joe-style sauce -- hearty and lip-smackingly tasty.

  • Heavy Table on 05/10/10

    The banana malt is very creamy, relatively light and lots of real banana flavor.

    Try the Meatball Dinner Dip! It's awesome.

  • Kelly T. on 04/25/13

    Wonderful service and food! Such a gem here in St.Paul

    On Mpls St Paul's list of Insider Eats for a mean pot of red sauce & pasta
