If you like Mexican go to the place in Dorset.

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?

two chinese buffets and one chinese restaurant in DL. One chinese restaurant in Walker (the WOK-er) and one chinese buffet in Wadena. There is also a BBQ joint in DL, Ordinary Joes, open Th-Sat.

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.

      Drove all the way up to grindstone this morning from Forest Lake. As I'm driving along the shoreline, I can't stop admiring how beautiful of a day it is, and how great it will be to be on the water. Was totally amped up to fish for some trout! Then I pull up to the boat launch...and it's closed down! :mad: This dredging project has been pushed back for years, then they finally decide to do it on a beautiful sunny day, that I picked to come here...on the last day of the lake trout season nonetheless! Needless to say, I was very upset!

      I bet the state, not the political cronies, would get a lot more money by having the auction on the internet or allowing phone bids.  Heck, put them on the bay of E. 

      Actually DMV and DNR do quite well at their auctions. You win bid, You Pay, You own. No red tape, no collection process, simple and things seem to sell for quite a bit of money. Go and one see for yourself, its quite amazing. Lots of them at the Arden Hills DMV. Hard to collect money over the phone and on the internet. I do believe they will use the same auction process for this property sale as the DMV and DNR are good at it and a lot of buyers will be there. If the internet were to be used, the "political cronies" would need to create a bill, Ear Mark several million to develop a site, create an app, hire 40 to 50 people to manage and than increase taxes to cover the cost much like Obama Care Not a good plan. If your interested, go to auction, bring lots of money, win a bid and own.

      2016 MN auction schedule if your interested in going to one.

      They were dredging there today. Not sure if they are done or if it will take longer.

    • the weather has not been good this past week either, but fishing was still do able. Pike island is a popular spot and I am sure you can find fish there. Gold is. would be worth a try as would the area around the wolf pack. We had 4 nice walleye today and a great fish fry tonight. Heading home in the morning for the season. so good luck

    • I bet we will end up going to red trying to convince the couple guys that dont like sleepers for some reason that a 10x24 sleeper is just like a cabin and that we can bring 2 portables to bounce around if we want. Dont really need a guide ill probably allready have gone there 3-4 times before this trip.... Maybe superior will freeze good this year and I can convince them to go there i guess I just get kinda bored or red sometimes

      Well, got out of the hospital and rehab a couple of weeks ago, Its been a long haul went in on Feb 15, with some massive heart attacks.   Starting to feel better and have hit Fish a couple of times.  Thought I would check out the site and see if traffic has picked up,  Sorry to say not much different, a lot of lookers as usual and not a lot of posters

      Been there and done that.... Not the site but the hospital etc

      In northwest Wisconsin 26 hunting dogs have already been killed this late summer.   Already breaking the record of 23.  Be careful in the northland.

      I guess if you want it bad enough, you'll be there.

      "Oral" auction might be the law when it comes to this type of sale.

      At least one has most of the month of October to shop for recreational land.  Not like there's anything else going on this time of year! :grin:

      Thanks for posting, Rick.  It might be worth looking at that list.

      Thanks for the info!!! Will be up there on 10/5-10/8, have been looking at the weather and I hope they are wrong because looks like rain... Have you ever tried fishing out on pike island area? Brother inlaw drove down there this summer and said there were quiet a few people fishing there.
