Being cooped up in the house for the past few weeks because it is so darn cold out side has it’s limits. Ventured out for lunch to Rudy’s Redeye grill in Lakeville. It wasn’t busy so the service was quick and the menu had many good options. Their motto is “Where strangers become friends, and friends become family.” I’m not so sure about going that far!

Could not decide what I wanted so I landed on the Triple Combo. The entree was a series of mini sandwiches, soup and a salad for $11. The soup I had was the chili, which happened to be the soup of the day. The salad was their bistro salad: bleu cheese, golden raisins, baby heirloom tomatoes, walnuts, with balsamic maple vinaigrette. My sandwich choice, of which you get 2, were the Rudy burgers the size of sliders. I enjoyed the meal very much


My lunch date had the chili but in the big bowl and the house burger with bacon for $11. He really liked the chili and it was a huge bowl rather than the small cup. The burger and fries, he said, were good, but he would like to try something different the next time we go. In other words he could take it or leave it, nothing spectacular.

All in all it got us out of the house on a below zero day in Minnesota! I would certainly go to Rudy’s Redeye grill again and maybe go for the Baja Fish Tacos!

Decided over the weekend that we wanted to do a buffet. Now, having been to the buffets in Las Vegas I guess I was expecting a lot more. We picked an odd location to try: the Market Grill at the new HyVee grocery store in Lakeville. ” Hy-Vee Market Grille is a full-service restaurant where the goal is to serve great food at a great value in a great atmosphere.”


Going over the buffet before ordering we both decided that it was certainly NOT worth the $20 entrance fee. They offered about 12 chafing dishes and a few pastry trays as well as a build-your-own omelet station. Imagining again the buffets we’ve had before this was not it. We didn’t give up and chose a couple of items off the menu.

I found a breakfast veggie bagel and ordered a side of hash browns (of course!). It was really good and I am glad I made the choice. Sesame bagel with grilled zucchini, peppers, onions, a tomato, sprouts. They only offer it on Sundays so don’t be looking for it on the menu any time during the week.


My husband always has a go to item if he can find it: biscuits and gravy. Well, he found it on the menu, ordered it along with a side of hash browns (of course). He said they were okay, but very heavy. The total for both of us was the same price as one buffet!


I’m on the fence as to going back or not. The buffet I do not think was worth the effort so maybe try another one of their specials during the week? Stay tuned to see what we decide! Other reviews can be found through TripAdvisor as well.
