Bar Abilene - Closed

1300 Lagoon Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55408 | Uptown/ Eat Street | 612-825-2525

Location Description:

If you mix them, they will come! Bar Abilene has proved this, building an almost cult-like following with their 16-ounce margaritas made with fresh juices and top-shelf tequilas. Truly, people drive in from the farthest corners of the metro area for these jewel-bright drinks made from some 90 tequilas and 30 juices. All hail the beauty of fresh squeezed lime! The kitchen produces some clean, fresh, slightly elevated versions of Mexican favorites. The guacamole is made before your eyes, at tableside, and because of that it's as fresh and good as possible. The chili, made with sirloin steak and black beans, is both rib-sticking and sophisticated. A Frank-Gehry-meets-Hopalong-Cassidy interior, and the biggest television in Uptown round out the experience.
