Green Good’s Favorite Restaurants in Blaine, Minnesota

We love living and working in Blaine, Minnesota! You wouldn’t guess it, but a century ago, the town numbered barely 500 residents. Today, it’s a bustling township, and an important bedroom community for the Twin Cities.

Of course, all those hungry mouths need to be fed, and Blaine, Minnesota restaurants rise to the challenge. With top-rated restaurants serving everything from hearty American to stellar pho to savory Mexican and beyond, the only challenge is choosing where to eat!

That why the staff at Green Goods decided to lend a hand. We compiled a list of our favorite Blaine, Minnesota restaurants. Give them a try and let us know which one you liked best!

Though the strip mall location may appear humble, since opening in late 2020 this pint-sized pan-Asian eatery has quickly become one of Blaine’s favorite places to nosh. From Chinese classics like General Tso’s chicken to cooling Vietnamese noodles salads topped with grilled proteins, the flavors here are always zesty and refreshing.

Everything—from the homey and welcoming vibe to the gracious service—spells “comfort” at Carol’s, one of Blaine’s most cherished local eateries. Best of all, the freewheeling take on what “American food” means ensures the choices are always exciting.

Serving up the bold and zesty flavors of the Mediterranean, Jawad is another eatery that transcends its humble surroundings. Crunchy falafel and expertly crisped fries may get top marks, but its the overstuffed gyro sandwiches that keep ‘em coming back. Carved hot off the rotisserie cone, they come slathered in a garlicky sauce and fluffy pita bread, they’re well worth a detour.

“Home of the best Chinese food in America!” reads the website. And while we can’t vouch for that claim, this well-loved lunch buffet shoots for the stars with delectable renditions of the classics: Sweet & sour chicken, Lo mein, Kung pao chicken and many more. And with the lunch specials priced to go easy on the wallet, the main challenge is not eating yourself into a coma.

While we love our taco truck grub as much as anyone, sometimes it’s time for an upgrade. And this stylish family-style joint serves up expert renditions of classics like carnitas Michoacan—tender grilled pork with tart pico de gallo—and tender enchiladas stuff with chicken and fragrant poblano peppers. Don’t forget the long list of margaritas and other cocktails to take the sting off after a long day!

With rustic wood and brick everywhere and a distinct down-home vibe, Clive’s is one of Blaine’s favorite spots to kick back. And while the bar may be the focal point, the food definitely doesn’t take a backseat to anyone. From Clive’s signature “steak bites” sauteed with onions and topped with bleu to the iconic Minnesota seafood dish—fresh walleye—you’ll find a lot to be happy about here come mealtime. Be sure to save room for “Chicken fried chicken,” served piping hot on a bed of garlic mashed potatoes.
