Starks is a dive kinda place that has been around for many many years. It has some of the best breakfast around and the biscuits and gravy is the best I have found for Minnesota.

The breakfast is always great here. The house seasoning on their pork chops is really tasty. My kids and spouse love their biscuits and gravy. We are never disappointed.

My GPS didn't list this place for some reason when i searched for a nearby restaurant. But thanks to other reviewers here on Tripadvisor pointing this place out, we chose Starks.

Had a recent lunch meeting at this place, and have been there before for breakfast. Huge portions, good food, and friendly staff. Very large place and is also popular Bar and has a Dance floor. This place has a lot of history and the building has been around since the late 1800s. Great prices for good meal.

I have the pleasure of working in the area around Starks and I have to say the Turkey Melt with Chili has been a regular delight to myself and co-workers. A server named Mason always greets us with a big smile, kind words, and exceptional service. Highly recommend to locals and travelers.

We regularly go to Starks for lunch with business colleagues. The waitstaff is very friendly and goes the extra mile to make sure you feel welcome. The building has a lot of character and the food is good.
