With a menu ranging from malts and burgers to chicken pot pie (their #1 seller) and turkey dinners, their business continues to thrive. They've experienced a recent boost in business via coverage from a local Facebook group – Eat Minnesota. Moderator Anthony Holznagel highlighted some of the favorite dishes he grew up eating. Well-crafted photos of the food, shared around the table with friends, reminded local foodies of 50’s Grill’s great food and service. Fond memories flooded in from diners who had grown up enjoying 50’s Grill food and treats, but who had since moved away. The post made the conversation "social" in the best way possible.
