City Pages' Description

As Midwesterners, we have--or should have--certain inalienable rights, primary among them the right to have real ice-cream malts and eggs grilled in butter 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Mickey's is just about the last place in town to recognize those constitutional guarantees: Burgers, malts, eggs all day, pancakes, Mulligan stew, sundaes, BLTs, and some darn good fries issue forth from the modest grills in a raging, corn-fed, red-white-and-blue river. Both locations are terrifically classy: The downtown one is set in an old-fashioned dining car that's been nationally praised (it's one of only two diners in the country on the National Register of Historic Places) and the other is a chrome-and-formica testament to Sputnik-age interior design (and could likewise sit in a museum).

But even if this iconic diner isn't going anywhere, you should make the trip. The neon sign and promise of good, pretty cheap food attract a cross section of the Twin Cities population around the clock, and one of the place's biggest draws is... More >>

    In Mighty Ducks, Mickey's Diner is the place where Charlie's mom works.

    Bring cash for tip...they accept CCards, but you are unable to add tip on the card. Believe you me, you're going to WANT to fork over $$$ for a tip it's so good!

  • Josh E. on 08/30/11

    This is one of the only dining cars left in the nation. It's also shown in the movie mighty ducks, & jingle all the way. Celebs like Lindsey Lohan, & many others have frequented here. Have a meal njoy
