The Wing Joint

The Wing Joint

For the past few months I have been making my way to The Wing Joint but with no avail. So the day before I started a new eating program; I decided to take the trip. I came for the wings and ended up ordering cheese curds, fried shrimp and breadsticks. The fried chicken is soooooo good. The wings do not look like they have been bullied by hormones either. Seasoned properly and fried well done just the way I like them. The cheese curds are cheesy but not greasy. Reminiscent of The State Fair. I was very impressed with the tidy little joint. Housing approximately 5-6 booths; it’s the perfect spot to quickly dine in or order to go. Located 10603 University Ave NE in Blaine MN. Ask for Mike Jones and tell him Miss Food Aficionado sent you.


Redstone American Grill Maple Grove



New location in Maple Grove, MN opened December 2012 is located in the lot next to Granite City. The space is a tad bit larger than the Minnetonka location but the ambiance and decor is identical.  The fireplace and congenial staff warm you upon entrance. There is a private dining room that also has an outdoor patio.  I have dined at Redstone for over 10 years and I must say it is one of my favorite restaurants in The Twin Cities.  My meal today included chili and lodge wedge cornbread with honey butter.  For dessert, seasonal bread pudding with bourbon sauce.  Pay them a visit and let them know you heard it here FIRST!
