Bucket's O' Dud!

Minnesota Nice? Not at Dick's Last Resort! Priding themselves with an atmosphere of being just that, a dick, but in more of a humorous way. Need some napkins? You better hope you're not by a fan, because napkins really take flight when they hit those things. Want to feel like a kid again? They may just put you in the grown up high chair. And if you want be completely humiliated... Let them place one of their home made hats on your head with a cleaver phrase, phrases I'll refrain from sharing here. SO! Now you have a feeling for what to expect when arriving, but it's about the food as well and that's where the fun stops for this patron.

Not quite sure where to start... The price of the food being to high? The lack of food, both limited menu items and meal size? Maybe the not so great tasting food? I think you get my drift... After the speech I received about how awesome their BBQ is and how awesome their food is in general, I thought I was going to be getting something that would satisfy my appetite. I got the complete opposite! I ordered the Dolly Chicken - 2 chicken breasts grilled and BBQ'd, rice and corn. Dry, salty and ok - respectfully. As I watched some of the other dishes come out, I was shocked by the meal sizes. One of my friends ordered ribs and wings, something he had once at another Dick's location where they filled a bucket full of wings and threw on some ribs for good measure. That's what he was expecting, but that's not what he got. Instead, he received 6 wings, 1 large riblet and an empty bucket! Price? $17.00 and I would have rather went to Hooters next door! "Bucket's O' Grub?" Not at this place!

If you want good food and good bang-for-your-buck, you won't find it at Dick's. Seriosuly, you're better off asking a friend who's never cooked before. I guarantee they'll do a better job just following some simple instructions and ingrediants. If you want to go for the experience and get a good laugh from reading some of the phrases on hats, fine, but expect to leave paying a pretty penny for very little food and nothing to brag about, except for the one liner you read. Maybe their slogan should be... Dick's Last Resort - "We really are your LAST resort for food!"

I also recently dined at DLR with a table full of friends. I was not even amused at the decor/antics=dumb/stupid. Limited, boring food choices, nothing special about the flavors and way, way too overpriced.

DLR is a dive. It was and is a small town go too(as a last resort) and the only thing good there was the tap beer.

Nothing to do with DLR but I may have found a competitor for Jersey's Juicy Lucy. I love Jerseys Juicy's and had yet to find anything even close to it until last night after the Timberwolves game. Hubert's, connected to the Target Center has a deep fried juicy lucy...OMGod. After sinking my teeth into this monster, i'm pretty sure my tongue was convulsing with pleasure. That is all I will say because this is a MUST try in order to understand this state fair-esk delight.

Hubert's was terrible!
