Guilty pleasures are amongst life's greatest pleasures — who doesn't love the taste of (slightly) forbidden fruit? And as this epic winter stretches on and on (and on and on), we're all for anything that helps us forget the low temps and icy roads outside. With that in mind, this week's Open Thread invites you proclaim your love for the restaurants that elicit eye-rolls from foodie friends: What Twin Cities restaurant is your ultimate guilty pleasure?
Maybe it's a national chain or something of the drive-through variety; maybe it's a spot where you recklessly abandon all concerns for calorie counts, your vegetarianism, or any semblance of "healthy" habits. Or perhaps it's a restaurant you see on the side because your significant other — for whatever reason — refuses to eat there.
It's time to shed the shame — share your guilty pleasures in the comments or via the tipline, and tell us why they are so awesomely guilt-inducing. As per usual, we'll map out the favorites next week.
