The restaurant in Rochester that has a pig on the roof has officially been named as one of the "12 Restaurants You’ll Want To Eat At In Minnesota In 2020".

#Truth - I've never been to Cheap Charlie's in Rochester.  I'm not sure why I haven't parked in front of the building that has a huge, gigantic pig on top of it and ventured through that front door, but I haven't.  I hear that their breakfast is pretty amazing but I'm almost wondering if that vision of a pig will be in my head as I bite into a crunchy piece of bacon.

That building with a pig on it is apparently a gem in our town and according to, we are all supposed to go eat at Cheap Charlie's this year.  Here's what they had to say about our local eatery:

Rochester, Minnesota, is home to many tasty restaurants that are well worth visiting this year. One of our favorites is a hole-in-the-wall spot that only locals know about. Cheap Charlie's is known for its great service, big portions, and delicious flavor. This unassuming restaurant will make you feel right at home. -
