The St. Clair Broiler Closes September 30 After 61 Years

Another restaurant opts for the long Minnesota goodbye

The iconic flames will only flicker for a few more days

It’s been over six decades of burgers, hash browns and malts inside the St. Clair Broiler, but today it was announced that the iconic restaurant will close at the end of the month. Restaurant owner Jimmy Theros owns the restaurant that has been in operation since 1956. His business group also owns and operates Rudolph’s BBQ in Minneapolis.

The diner at the corner of Snelling and St. Clair in St. Paul has a fantastic old neon sign that blinks red flames crawling up the side of the building, located a stone’s throw from the Macalester college campus. It’s been a popular gathering spot for students, families in the area and area retirees who appreciated the facile menu of eggs, steak sandwiches and a fairly popular weekend fish fry.

The final night of service will be Saturday September 30.
