Randy’s Premier Pizza

6030 50th St N
Oakdale, 55128
Reviews:
Had an excellent Chicago style pizza here! It was amazing!
The best pizza available anywhere for any price! Excellent GLUTEN-FREE pizza too! The hard working, very talented genius namesake/owner is regularly working at the restaurant. The kitchen staff turnover appears to be low, the same people work there for years. All of this along with great ingredients and phenomenal recipes comes together to create pizza magic. Gluten sensitive people rejoice! Many establishments claim great gluten-free pizza but in our experience most are terrible tasting. Randy has gluten-free cooking figured out! The BEST GLUTEN-FREE PIZZA we have found and we have tried many highly touted brands. My girlfriend craves this pizza. It is so good I eat and enjoy it and I do not have a gluten allergy. He also has delicious chocolate covered gluten-free Rice Krispy style bars for sale. My family and I have been patronizing this restaurant for over a decade and wholeheartedly encourage anyone who enjoys pizza to try Randy's Premier Pizza! This is a neighborhood restaurant worth driving across town for. This is the good stuff.
My wife and I haven't been to Randy's in over 15 years. (We had moved across town) We were in the the neighborhood, hungry and decided to stop in and order take out. We both forgot what a great pizza they make. We were eating in our car as we drove home. We will now drive out of our way to go to Randy's.

Caribou Coffee

8360 3rd St N
Oakdale, 55128
Reviews:
Caribou is a great MN based coffee shop. They stick with a nice Northwoods theme in all their locations. This locations has a very nice staff who all seem to have drank 3-4 cups of coffee in the morning. I was in at 6:30am on a Saturday morning and they were all having a blast running around gossiping and talking about what they did the night before. They were all very engaging and included me in the conversation. The iced mocha was excellent, I make it in about once a week
Very frustrating that I stood in line over 8 minutes only to find that they were out of the Luxury Home Tour tickets, the only reason why I was there to begin with. Huge line of the after church crowd and only two people working. Seeing that it would be a long wait for nothing, I planned ahead and asked one of the women if this is where I can purchase the tickets. Wrong question apparently, as when I got to the front, it turned out they were out of tickets. Wow. How about a sign if you're out?? They were both non apologetic.
Used to come to this "Bou" on an every other day basis until I moved north of town. My good high school friend and I still choose this location to meet at for our regular check-ups/chats. Never disappoints. Great staff. Clean location. Free WiFi and soft noise level. Lots of parking!

Olive Garden Italian Restaurant

Reviews:
Can not complain about the flavorful meals here...so good...fresh soups and salads...the bread sticks are delicious...a bit spendy but the fresh ingredients are so worth it....you get what you pay for. The atmosphere is wonderful and very friendly staff...always a great experience here...depending when you go you may have to wait 10 to 20 minutes for a table....we will wait GREAT food!
I've ever had a poor experience at an Olive Garden and never written a review good or bad. Both times my wife and I've been to this Olive Garden the entire staff far exceeded expectations. Top notch service from the moment we walked in until we walked out.
Its ok.. the prices are fair and the server we had was great. only 4 stars because i dont think the food here is worth writing home to mom about..

Carbone’s Pizzeria-Oakdale

Reviews:
I love the thin crust pizza! Fast delivery, hot and fresh pizza!
this carbones has a very limited menu compared to other carbones in the metro. the guys that work there are cool but i thought their pizza sauce was too spicy and the salad i ordered was wilted and the blue cheese dressing tasted like wallpaper paste ( im not a proud man. i have eaten wallpaper paste before on a dare. ha ). the $4.95 for a 6 pack of soda delivered is a good deal tho
Good Pizza, price is higher than most for delivery but very good. My wife is pregnant and when she's craving pizza this is what I order, and boy does it work. You heard it first, shuts up a pregnant craving, and that is the best promotion I can give to a pizza joint.

Sgt Peppers Grill & Bar

930 Helena Ave N
Oakdale, 55128
Reviews:
Our waitress was very nice and attentive to us, although the food was terrible. I got a burger and fries. The fries tasted like McDonald's French fries. The burger was not great. No taste and it was soggy. Really disappointed in the food there. Nothing amazed me
My Wife and I eat at peppers a few times a month. We love the food, Tap beer section and atmosphere. We really like seeing Rob and Julie (owners) working whether its Rob tending Bar or Julie running food, its always nice to see ownership working side my side with there staff. Rob and Julie always make a point to stop in over and say hi and ask how we are doing. The home cooked style menu is always great and they offer a nice Varity of options. I would recommend the Pot Pie! Bring your appetite you wont go home hungry, The Soup is also to die for! We also really like the fact that there is not much turnover with staff. Its nice to see the same servers and bar tenders working when we stop in for a drink and or food. I really cant say enough good things about Sgt Peppers and the staff! The only suggestion is would ask for is to have Bud Light on tap! its my personal favorite!
All the burgers are to die for! My husband and I landed in burger heaven when we visited this place! Perfectly seasoned patties! It'll have you eating down to the very last bite - no matter how full you are! NOM NOM NOM! LOVED our attentive waitress also! Service was beyond amazing!

Five Guys Burgers and Fries

8360 3rd St N
Oakdale, 55042
Reviews:
Great burgers. Loud as hell though. Stood at the cashier and watched him plug his ears trying to listen to a phone order. The person on the phone ended up hanging up. Turn the music down!!
One of the newest trends to hit cities is the "craft" burger fast food stop! From 5 Guys to Smash Burger to one of the originals, Burger Time, they seem to be popping up everywhere, but is one of them really better than the next? I'm not a huge supporter of the chains, but I will occasionally test the market to see if something is worth eating. This is going to be posted at some of the others I have mentioned as a cross referenced review to be fair, but I will say - If you've had one from one place, you've had them all! Nothing really setting them apart from each other besides maybe the size of the burger, some of the creative toppings and the bun. As for the burger itself though, flavors is pretty basic and similar from place to place. The distribution or supplier may just be a little different as well. All-in-all, I'll stick to the ma and pa, one off's for my burger fixes. They're just better!
A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. I was hangry one afternoon and really needing a red meat fix. I strolled into Five Guys purchased a big old greasy bag of taters and a single and had no shame to my game as I sat alone and inhaled that thing like a boss. Filling, Flavorful and a good value. sometimes you can get satisfaction.....

Baja Sol Tortilla Grill

8364 3rd St N
Oakdale, 55128
Reviews:
Got takeout meals for 6 people. Salsa is definitely not anything special and we sampled about 6 varieties. Bland...even spicy salsa was JUST spice with no real flavor. Food was just ok. Dry rice. Beans were unseasoned black beans. People with chicken fajitas were the happiest in the group. Chips were pretty good...too bad the salsa was boring. Basically it provided us with nourishment but not a ton of enjoyment.
We eat here about once a month. Staff is friendly, we get our food within five to ten minutes of ordering. I love the fresh veggies on the burritos. The mango peach salsa is really tasty. Some Mexi-American food chains leave us feeling queasy, we leave here feeling great!
My favorite chain of American-Mexican food. This location is really easy to get to from I-94 and is often my first stop when I drive in to the Cities. They have a much more extensive menu than Chipotle and Qdoba so that is really nice. The best thing about Baja Sol is the free, all-you-can-eat chips and salsa bar. The chips are amazingly good. There are about 10 different kinds of salsas to try too including one or two seasonal varieties that change. Definitely worth a try.

Red Lobster

8350 3rd Street North
Oakdale, 55128
Reviews:
Haven't been to a Red Lobster in ages, but this was the quickest and most convenient place around when we were looking for a quick lunch. I'm not above chains and not above their cheddar bay biscuits. Our server was fantastic. Great on every level. Ordered some chicken strips and potatoes for our little one that came out super fast. Biscuits come out right away now. Lunch specials are very reasonable, quick and tasted good. Always impressed by the service at each Red Lobster. This one was no different.
Ate here with my family about 3 months ago. The waitress/service was acceptable but really the food tasted one step above bad frozen grocery store seafood. Mushy grilled shrimp, bland too hard fried shrimp. Honestly I don't know what the people working in the kitchen could do as this stuff was just bad. Probably old. Didn't complain because my wife said she would be embarrassed. Definitely will not eat here again. Or any other red lobster for that matter. As a chain they have just gone down hill. Stay away.
I went to dinner with my family and I enjoyed a lot great food and friendly service. I had blackened tilapia fish it was so tasty and my daughter ate popcorn shrimp she likes a lot. I will go back soon.

Buffalo Wild Wings

8346 3rd St. North
Oakdale, 55128
Reviews:
Been here twice now and the place sure is a great sports bar but it is a terrible restaurant. I give a one because I can buy the same beer all over the place and I want to give a two because of the pretty good service. I do give only a one because the wings are not that great and the rest of the food sucks.
If you're in it for wings and beer and sports on the TV, you really can't go wrong here. 'Nuff said.
We like going here but we need to stop until the food speed improves. Waited over 45 minutes on a non-busy Saturday mid afternoon for the following: 1 cheeseburger, 1 hamburger (but they put cheese on it when I said no cheese), mini corn dogs, 6 boneless wings, & a chicken wrap & after 45 min of waiting the food was cold. It's a recurring theme at this location slow slow for food to come out.

Sarpino’s Pizzeria

Reviews:
They've gotten my order wrong so many times now the employee even said as much the other day. Even with that being said I'll continue to order from them. The food is always tasty and Hey when they do mess up I always end up with some extra so I can't complain to much ^_^
Over 2 hours and no delivery. Called after an hour and a half and was spoken to rudely. Told it would be another 35 with no apology. Called after that 35 minutes and was placed on hold for 13 minutes... Until I called from another phone. Then they answered. Told me it wasn't even out for delivery yet. No apology. No offer for a future discount. Almost 2 and a half hours. Ignored my 2nd call about it. What a joke. They should be embarrassed. I will never order from here again and I'll be sure to tell all my friends as well. Get it together and learn some customer service or don't offer delivery. BTW, I used to deliver pizza. I know stuff happens. Apologize and make it right. If they sent it out after my 2nd call it would have taken nearly 3 hours to arrive, that's unacceptable. Ugh. So disappointed.
I would give them a zero but not possible!! I've never been so unhappy with phone etiquette EVER!!! I called to place an order and the boy answered the phone saying "just to let you know, we are three hours behind on orders". Seriously?! It's 1:45am you close at three???
