Haven't been in the area very long, which is probably why my boyfriend Jake and I are constantly asking the questions, "Where should we eat"? Neither of us are very picky and we both love to try different things, so what did I do? I turned to the locals via Facebook to find out where in the St. Cloud area should a person, new to the area, go for good eats!

A couple people had mentioned this one to me before in passing and then it was confirmed as a suggestion on Facebook!

This was what some would say is an unconventional suggestion, but I actually really love it! I went to do a little more research and it looks like they have different events planned with different food or food trucks that come out and you can see on their Facebook what's coming up and you pair it with local delicious beer, WIN!

This is not the first time someone has brought up House of Pizza to me and from what I have been told, several times, a newbie NEEDS to get this local staple.

When I say St. Clolud area, I definitely mean anything in Central Minnesota and I will travel for good food. This girl is not afraid to eat! But this is right down the road, and sounds like it's worth the little drive I have to get there.

Click on each to find them Dolsie's Lunch Box GrilleJules' Bistro, Kohinoor Bar & GrillKrewe Restaurant, and MC's Dugout.

  • Mexican:

When you love Mexican like this guy does and like I do...it's hard to choose just one favorite. Hence multiple ideas here if you love it too.

Again you can learn more by clicking on each of them: Giliberto's, Taco Chon, Taqueria Don Chuy.

I love again that they had more than one suggestion and I'm putting both on my list, how about you?

I've been told if you are from St. Cloud this is known as a staple and a must try if you are looking for a burger and fries, plus they have over 20 flavors of shakes, YUMMMM!

Anyone else salivating after all that, because I sure am. Hopefully this helps out any newbies to the area, like myself, find a new favorite or many favorites to eat, drink and be merry at! Happy eating my friends 😀

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
