That would be Companeros in Dorset: http://www.dorsetmn.com/

Yep good Mexican food.

OK, now where is the best Chinese (buffet) and BBQ?

No real Chinese buffets or BBQ that I can think of. Khan's Mongolian BBQ is a mix of both, I suppose. I've never tried it. For family dining, the West 40 is outstanding (and reasonable) for breakfast. I've never had lunch or dinner there. I like the Schwartzwald downtown for German food for dinner. Royal Bar next door has great burgers and sandwiches, but not the best for kids.

Rocky's pizza has great pizza and is a good place for kids. The aforementioned Companero's is also great for Mexican. Go early on weekends because the lines are long.

<lol> Thanks Scott. Love the Royal's burgers. (Just the wife and me, so being a bar is OK...) Used to go to the DIXIE drive in for their burgers/malts(mmmmmmmmmm), but they aren't there any more (I hear).

Will just have to "fish around" for some good places to eat. Any Chinese buffets and/or BBQ in Menahga, Nevis, Akeley, Walker, surrounding townw/etc?

If you want a really good breakfast go to the Rapid River Logging Camp north of Park Rapids. Their dinners are also very good. For pizza try Rocky's at the intersection of 71, and 34.

Breakfast at the logging camp....after that all you want to do is take a nap.

My favorite was the Dorset Cafe, great chicken, nice little salad bar and draft beer came in icy mugs.

But I haven't been there in a while.

For pizza we used to go to Rocky's and a little place in Nevis, called, Steve & Jills Steak and Pizza. grin.gifwink.gifcool.gif

Companero's is always my favorite spot to hit...good Mexican food and good margaritas are tough to beat...

Rocky's and Zorbaz both have good pizza...Zorbaz is one of my favorite late night hangouts if you are looking to drink

Since guys are telling you to go to DL I'll say just head to the Toad Lake Store and get a burger. Taco tuesday is good as well. Nice people good food and cold drinks. Also the Y steakhouse is a nice place with excellent steaks. Little pricey but it's good food.

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.

      I did that with tango and saw a world of difference ... I started at Sand Pines and they helped me tons. The kid brought me out kept all the pheasants caged and would plant one at a time in a easy spot where I could see where he planted. I would let tango out we would flush it shoot retrieve come back I would put him in the car and we did that 3 times. After that he then planted the rest of the ones I bought and we found all but one. Next spot I brought him was Golden Meadows and they were helpful as well I had them flag the general area the pheasants were planted. I went there a couple times and each time they used less flags and planted the birds farther away from the flags they did have out. Until the last time I went used no flags at all.

      As if there was any question...definitely be careful on those high current lakes.  I went through (walking) on Koetter tonight. Thankfully I only plunged one leg in to the hip and was able to scramble away.   Its a spot I have been a dozen times in the past few years.  I knew the ice got thinner in this area but was always passable and I followed a 4 wheeler or tank track and then a foot/sled path so I thought I would stay dry.  I was ON the path when I got wet.  Had picks around my neck and glad I did even if I didn't use them (happened SO fast).  The walk back to the car was more than a little nerve wracking.  Not sure I'll ever fish that spot again.  And in the future I wont be so trusting of other's tracks.  Spud on...   tg
