BoB’s Produce Ranch

Reviews:
So happy with this local business! So happy it's in Fridley, this city needs something more than Mike's Discount foods and Cub. They have great produce. You can't find everything here but most of the time you can find the essentials. It's definitely more pricey than Cub, but I'm glad to pay extra for a local business. But if you need let's say ricotta cheese... you have to go elsewhere. They don't everything. Come in for their chili and salad bar! But beware, lunch time is a mad house in there.
Great meats at the meat counter, nice service people working there very helpful also good fresh produce
BEST salad bar in the cities!!! Always fresh, and local when possible. Try the chicken soup too. Trust me.. If you are feeling under the weather or even just a little blue it will light up the skay and make the world better!

Grandpa’s Ice Cream

Reviews:
Still my favorite ice cream in the Twin Cities! It's too bad these guys are in such a sucky location because Grandpa's is GREAT! If they were located in Uptown, people would be raving about them and flocking to their front doors. Unfortunately, they're in a crappy strip mall. Then again, at least I can find parking! I'm glad they're back open for the season. This time a tried the Mexican Hot Pepper Chocolate. It has a nice bite on the tail end! My daughter tried Resilient Spirit Swirl, commemorating the great Fridley tornado of 1965...a stupid name for the ice cream but the taste was great. And the container looked messy, like the aftermath of a tornado. I suggest adding some dead gummy bear bodies to add a little drama! We'll be back. -Daddy Maxx Retro
Very cute place. I would have taken pictures but we definitely ate too fast. I love that the flavors change periodically. The salty caramel was amazing and the horchata is surprisingly good! They even have a variety of sorbets. (Dairy free)
Grandpa's is 1 of 3 outstanding unique north metro ice cream options. Grandpa's is my favorite because they make their own ice cream, but all three are worth a visit. In fact, on a fine day one could bike to all three (13 miles total from Grandpa's in Fridley to Village Scoop in North Oaks to Cup and Cone in White Bear Lake). Grandpas is in a strip mall and somewhat hard to find. Don't give up. Lots of parking and well worth the time to get there. It's a small shop, but you'll want to stay because it feels like an old-fashioned ice cream shop, it's cozy, and the staff are nice. The ice cream is fantastic and they have a wide variety of flavors. It's not cheap, if you want cheap ice cream drive thru DQ. If you love ice cream, then you need to visit Grandpa's ice cream in Fridley. It's just off I694 and so very good.

Reviews:
Excellent pizza, reasonable selection of other dishes (pasta, salads, etc.). Been to several locations and received very good service in all but one (Blaine).
I just finished my dinner from here, not only did it take a ridiculous amount of time to order because the woman on the phone kept repeating the wrong thing but they didn't give us plates or silverware (had it delivered to a hotel) nor did I receive my garlic roll with my Caesar salad. The worst part was that the dressing must have gone bad-it was warm and had a strange taste so for safety I only ate the salad that didn't have dressing. The only reason why they got two stars was because the pizza that was also ordered was good and they were on time. Never ordering again.
Pretty good deep dish pizza here. The first time we went the service was pretty bad I'm not going to lie but the pizza was still really good. We decided to give it another shot and the second time the service was a lot better.

This place is hidden in fridley in back on a gas station. The food here is great. From hot dogs to Italian beef. Haven't dined in yet but the staff there is super friendly. It's a order up front before you seat yourself kind of place. There's a screen with the menu on top but the font is very small. They also have plastic menus you can read from. Check in on yelp to get a free drink&fries with your purchase. Food here is super affordable.
Goodness be, so disappointed with everything. Ordered burger, came with bun smashed dried out, chili cheese fries-fries raw in the middle, chili so runny needed a spoon. Gyro came wrapped tightly, meat so dried I couldn't eat it, brown lettuce, pita falling apart due to it being dried out. Guy at counter didn't understand what we wanted, and was so confused. Never coming back Where did Chris & Robs go?
This place is a joke...but not a funny one. This restaurant sucks. I don't know where to begin. I'll just list all of the problems and you can decide which one grosses you out the most! 1) When first walking up to the counter to order, the floor was sticky and dirty. My shoes actually made sticky noises when I walked on it. My daughter and I looked at our shoes, amazed. 2) The dude behind the counter seemed really confused and he had a hard time communicating. 3) The floors in the rest of the place were dirty...sticky, dark marks, old food, etc. 4) About half of the tables were filthy. 5) The soda dispenser had thumb sized chunks of MOLD in the drip tray (see photo). 6) The restroom was filthy with a dirty floor, dirty toilet, dirty sink, paper towels overflowing in the floor, and a missing paper towel dispenser. It couldn't have gotten this gross in only 2 hours of business! 7) My daughter's chilli dog came out 15 minutes before my Italian beef sandwich (I timed it). 8) They forgot her fries. 9) The dude bringing food out was confused about who got what food (despite the table numbers), and he walked to various tables with EVERY order, asking if a food basket belonged to them. Duh! 10) When my Italian finally came out, the bread was water logged because the beef wasn't drained properly. Gross! 11) My fries were undercooked and greasy (not cooked in hot enough grease). 12) When I complained to the owner about our food coming out at different times, he actually defended this and told me that hot dogs don't take as long to make as a beef sandwich. This comment is so stupid, I don't have to explain it to you Yelpers! 13) My daughter finally got her french fries...raw in the middle and too greasy. These guys aren't going to make it. Don't come here! -Daddy Maxx Retro P.S. VERY SUSPICIOUS of the positive reviews with only one (1) review and no (0) photo. BEWARE.

Food was below average. But the way the manager (Jen) spoke to the staff was embarrassing and uncomfortable.
Fast food better than TJ and TB because the tortillas are KILLER! Chilitos are a good old stand-by as well as the taco burrito. The enchiladas are also nice but a tad pricey for what you get. I get mad at them though when they take the RED CHILI burrito off the menu. They only have it during the hellish days of deep Minnesota winter. If they had it year round I would be an every other day visitor. I am baffled by their insolence as I have complained LOUDLY. For fast food frenzy, this place is tops though..
The flavor of childhood. I grew up eating at Zantigo. It's cheap Mexican fast food, but higher quality than Taco Bell. The chilitos are fabulous!

Immediate three stars for having Suhey's jersey on the wall. Elevated to 4 when the Chicago style dog was Vienna beef and the Italian beef had quality Torino style bun. If you have now idea what I'm talking about, you not from the city or the surrounding Chicagoland area. Tasted great. Especially if you jonesing for Super-Fan fare.
I had the double dog, onion rings and a tamale (if you can call it a tamale...I posted a picture). The hotdog was good but it would have been better if it was hot...or even warm. The onion rings were ok but I paid $5.50 for 7 onion rings and they were not large ones either. The tamale was a joke, $2.25 for a "supreme" tamale served in a plastic bag. It looked and tasted like crap. I had a Groupon. I won't be back.
Yay! Chicago dogs that I don't have to drive 6+ hours to get. Definitely worth it. At least to hold me over. Suggestions... even when it's busy... make the hot dogs... well hot and the buns stilled steamed. Lastly, train your employees to print out a copy of the receipt for my records. Instead I took a photo of the signed version and denied twice taking that copy so you can't count the drawer. I'm happy with the food.

I was very excited to try this place today. I didn't know if I was supposed to order at the counter or at the table so I grabbed a menu and sat down. There were no customers but all the tables (except two) were covered with dirty dishes. After fifteen minutes at the table I went to the counter to order. I had questions about the Loroca and the woman behind the counter said flower. That didn't answer my question but obviously that's just a language barrier and I won't hold that against them. I ordered Tacos al pastor, tacos lengua, and pork and cheese papusas. The tacos arrived after about 20 minutes and they were ok. The cilantro was wilted and the meat was dry but the flavor was ok compared to Wisconsin tacos. Did I mention that I drove more than one hour from Wisconsin? After finishing my tacos and still no sign of the papusas I went to the counter to ask about the rest of my meal. There was a lot of yelling between two employees and eventually a woman in the back looked at me and said sorry. Another 20 minute wait and I eventually got my papusas (without any garnish). I again went to the counter to ask for the toppings. After standing there for what felt like an eternity and feeling ignored, a server started to plate the rest of my dish. The Papusas were tasty but pretty skimpy. Half way through my 1.5 hour meal family members started showing up and there meals were served instantly. When I arrived at 1:30 the place was empty. By 2:30 there were at least a dozen screaming children. I had planned on getting a bunch of food to go as well.
If you're expecting fine dining, this isn't the place. If you want great, homemade food, you are in luck. It is small and always made to order. The staff speaks almost no English so go with the flow. Pupusas are the specialty but anything with beef tongue is prepared very well. Great food, great service. As long as you're not a snob you will enjoy this place.
Family place. Great value on the tasty Salvadoran Pupusas. Nice cabbage salad included!
