Best Garlic Bread Ever. Best Onion Rings Ever.

Murray's of Minneapolis is a steak joint time-locked in the 1940s.  When I asked some Minnesotans about Murray's, they said it was a "supper club".  I didn't have a clue what a supper club is/was, but, I get the idea it's a dinner place with linen table cloths that features evening entertainment.

We went on Friday for their Mon-Fri. early-bird special. And what a special it was!  The garlic bread was the best ever -- crisp, salty, packed with garlic, butter, and a no-doubt secret seasoning!  It was awesome!

The restaurant has been in the family since its inception, and many of the waitresses are long-timers.  We were fortunate; we got one, and she couldn't have been nicer.  She definitely added to the experience.

For my appetizer, I chose the onion rings over the Caesar salad and the other options. The onion rings were best ever -- delicate, light, with the same awesome seasoning as the garlic bread.

For main course, I had a delicious steak, and for dessert, their sliced bread pudding that packed a rum sauce punch -- it's the greatest thing since sliced bread!

All for $20.

The pianist was just gearing up as our early-bird was winding down.

We'll be back (Lord willing).
