Went here for lunch and it was amazing. The food tastes home cooked and is just comforting. The turkey commercial was made with fresh turkey and was so good. You walk into the restaurant and feel right at home.

Perkins was too busy, so we went to NaKato Bar and Grill for breakfast. Bartender was awesome! Great service! Great breakfast! Not far from the Hotels along 169. Well worth the trip. Will definitely go back there the next time I stay in Mankato.

Breakfast is excellent. The bacon is out of this world. Evening specials a good deal. The chef puts together unusual combinations for a great burger. The patty dunker is sooo good. Never had a bad meal of service here.
