Chick-fil-A – Map It

This Georgia based fast-food restaurant is gaining popularity in the north and has finally made its way to Minnesota, most recently, Burnsville. Featuring items like their classic chicken sandwiches along with salads and wraps and waffle fries, it’s a great place to grab a quick, and may we say delicious, breakfast, lunch or dinner. They’ve got a play place so the kiddos will love it too. Located right off of County Road 42 next to Strabucks in Burnsville. Learn More

You’ve got to try: Spicy Chicken Sandwich

All the goodness of their regular hand-breaded chicken sandwich with a spicy blend of peppers served on a buttered, toasted bun with dill pickle chips. Throw in some waffle fries and chick-fil-A sauce and you have got yourself a fantastic lunch!

Denny’s – Map It

After a long absence, Denny’s has reopened a restaurant in Burnsville so getting breakfast (or lunch or dinner) 24 hours a day is a reality once more. The restaurant has a modern chic vibe to it with brightly colored seating with mod lighting and décor. They’ve got many of the classic options we all know and love (Grand Slam® anyone?) plus, they also offer new and seasonal items throughout the year. Located off 35W and Burnsville Parkway. Learn More

You’ve got to try: Pancake Puppies ®

Delicious bite-sized round pancakes rolled in cinnamon sugar and served with warm syrup. It’s basically a pancake-esque mini doughnut that’s totally acceptable to eat for breakfast. They come in a 6 or 10 piece, perfect for sharing, although we don’t know why you’d want to share these.

JL Beers – Map It

Their specialty is right in their name, with 40 different beers on tap, 30 available in bottles and another 15 in cans, it is a beer lovers haven. Their menu is simple, focusing on freshly made burgers, chicken, fresh cut fries and chips done right. Plus, the prices are so reasonable it leaves you with more money for a second round of beer. Bottoms up to this ‘hoppy’ place! Learn more

You’ve got to try: The Humpty Dumpty Burger

A Cheeseburger with a fried egg on it, served on their signature bun and it’s so good, ketchup and mustard are optional, and some would argue, not needed. Couple this with their homemade chips and/or french fries (we won’t judge) and you’ll go home feeling like you’ll want to come back for lunch the next day.
