The Most Delicious Minnesota Road Trip Takes You To 8 Hole-In-The-Wall BBQ Restaurants

You might not associate Upper Midwest states like Minnesota with great BBQ foods. After all, we’re hundreds of miles from the nation’s known BBQ destinations. But that doesn’t mean our state doesn’t have plenty of excellent BBQ restaurants to try out. We especially love Minnesota’s hole-in-the-wall spots that might not look like much on the outside but are full of fantastic food. That’s why we created this BBQ restaurant road trip through Minnesota. It goes from north to south, traveling through small towns and big cities, and it’s the perfect way to occupy a weekend if you’re a Minnesota BBQ lover. Read on to see where this road trip leads!
