Cowboy Slims

Yuck, did I really just go here to eat? Yes, I did. Looking for some quick bar food in Uptown and this is where we landed. I probably didn't even tell anyone I ate here because I was so embarrassed, but here I am.

Hello, my name is __________ and I ate at Cowboy Slims...

During a Thursday afternoon, the place was just packed floor to ceiling. We waited and waited and finally got a seat at this amazing dining establishment. Jokes. We were the only ones in the joint, our waitress was rude, the food was okay, should have gone to William's down the street. I guess if you were forced out against your will by a frat boy and all they would let you eat is stuff off the Cowboy Slims menu, then by all means, DO IT!

I had the buffalo chicken wrap (yup, out of my comfort zone, thinking outside the box) and my friend had some sort of salad. I tried to look up the menu information on their website, but apparently that too was designed by an infant. Bland, boring, blah, blah, blah, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. The waitress and her new employee shadow were so busy with their non-existent other tables that they only managed to check on us once. I enjoyed the conversation and the company...no let us never speak of this again...

So there you have it folks, I wouldn't pick death over eating at Cowboys Slims, but I'd be pretty friggin close.

Here's what fellow food enthuists from Yelp had to say...

"One guy drank the last of our beer and tried to sell us drugs. When I was walking to the bathroom, two dudes slapped my ass at the same time and started chanting "U-S-A U-S-A."
--Brian L., St. Paul

"I've never seen more tools in one place in my life...and I've been to Vegas!!"
--Lauren R., Minneapolis

"If this isn't the embarrassing poop stain of Minneapolis, I don't know what is."
--Ryan J., Minneapolis

Well said friends, well said.

I couldn't agree with you more. You probably could have saved yourself the pain of actually eating/going in there and wrote the same review by just looking at the place.
