When in North Dakota, I knew I wanted to go to a diner. It seemed like the logical choice was Kroll’s Diner. Kroll’s Diner has four locations in Bismarck, Mandan, Minot and Fargo. Side note, I think Minot wins as the worst pace to be stationed in the Air Force.
We headed to Kroll’s Diner in Bismarck for brunch. We planned to get take out and I’m glad we did. Since masks are not required in North Dakota, not a single person in Kroll’s Diner was wearing one. I was the only one and I stuck out like a sore thumb!
Kroll’s Diner Atmosphere: B
The fact that even the staff didn’t wear masks, made me uncomfortable but that is also why we ordered take out. The outside of Kroll’s diner looks like a stereotypical diner. There is a sign that says: sit down and eat. Kroll’s Diner is a 50s-style restaurant serving up German and American dish. It’s a giant silver building with chrome everywhere. The inside has several booths, tables, and a full length bar. You couldn’t get a more picture perfect diner than Kroll’s Diner.
Kroll’s Diner Coffee: B
I ordered a plain coffee at Kroll’s Diner and it tasted good. There was nothing unique or unusual about the coffee but it did taste good.
Kroll’s Diner Food: B
Kroll’s Diner menu is known to be a German and diner focused food. They serve items like kielbasa and german skillets. They are known for their knoephla soup or their hand scooped shakes and malts. I was in the mood for steak and eggs so that is what I ordered. The steak and eggs came steak, eggs (I chose scrambled), hashbrowns, and I chose sour dough bread. I asked for rare steak and my steak was cooked well down. With the plastic utensils, it was comical watching me attempting to eat it. While the steak was disappointing, the hashbrowns were good and I appreciated how much butter was added to the sourdough toast.
