This is a classic destination for pizza and wings and have a unique flavor, crust and venue unlike most pizza places. Pernats have established a culture of great northern Minnesota dining.

Wish we lived a bit closer to Bimbo's as we can never get enough of their pizza! Got a takeout pizza to eat on our way home from checking out the cabin and it didn't last long in the car! We did wait til we got home to eat the wings and the sweet chili wings were awesome as usual.

They serve such yummy pizza and wings. It has always been consistently good. The hot wings and butter garlic are two of our favorites.

We hadn't been here in years, and last time we were it was by snowmobile. Going in the summer was just as fun. The wings are available in a variety of temps, but the hot wings were suggested. They were awesome. Best we've had in Minnesota if not anywhere. Close proximity to Side Lake and Sturgeon Lake. We were staying... More

Close to the cabin so we frequent Bimbo's often...sometimes very busy and it can be loud in the place but the food and service are exceptional! If you are in the area you need to give it a try!

Thin crust pizza at its finest and many flavors of wings to go with it. George's special is a good choice with the buffalo wings. Full bar is on site as well along with a full menu. Located right on Side Lake.
