D.Rough and I were in Burnsville to see Tracey Morgan perform. We needed to eat before the show, so we went to Roasted Pear since the menu looked like it had some good things to eat when we looked online. When we walked in, we joked about the mix of people inside. It honestly was like 60+ happy hour. The entire bar area was filed with older people and they were having a blast. I’m not joking one bit – these people were rocking this bar. Not a few people, a lot of people.
This was a fantastic random choice for our pre-show dinner. It would have been great, even without the burger starter, but I’m really glad they were good burgers. The servers that helped us were really nice and one server recognized my Minnesota RollerGirls sweatshirt and knows one of our friends. Small world.

Bottom 5 things
1. Wings were just alright
2. Not a young person’s hang out (despite the food being really good)
4. Maybe consider putting some indicator of spice level on the menu for the giardiniera
5 .We felt bad for not actually getting anything with roasted pears (I think there’s only one item on the menu with roasted pears)
