TERRIBLE FOOD – Minneapolis has some fantastic restaurants...this is NOT one of them. I wouldn't even go so far as to say that their food is decent.
I've tried several items on the menu....I give up..Today I ordered a reuben and calamari for delivery. It was terrible and over priced. $30 with the tip - and the corned beef wasn't even edible. That was their last chance. Their crab cakes are especially bad...very greasy.
Do yourself a favor, save your money and try another restaurant.
Good place gone bad – I used to be a real big Trocaderos fan. I’ve been going there for a little more than a year and a half. I enjoyed the cheap lunch buffet. I got to know a few of the managers. They would always make a point say hi and see how I was doing, occasionally even gave me some show tickets. I brought my family to a show and I felt really important because they knew me by first name. I even had a small party in the boardroom. The only manager that talks to me now, just rambles about nonsense and doesn’t even seem to be interested in talking to me per say, he just seems to want to talk constantly. I’ve found it to be strange and intrusive while trying to eat. He has even argued with me a bit if I have any suggestions. Final straw happened recently when I had a problem with a credit card there, and the woman I talked to on the phone was rude and just downright disrespectful, acting as if I was trying to get something free when all I was doing was asking questions. So long lunch buffet, my cardiologist will miss you.
Nice place to have in the area – We have been getting take out and delivery from Trocaderos for several months now. The food has been good which is why we keep calling. A group of friends got together at Trocaderos for some food and drinks. Our group had a good time and stayed later than we were planning. The server was very nice and kept checking in on our group. We like what Trocaderos has to offer.
Trocaderos has my vote! – My husband and I brought our kids to see our son play with his band at Trocaderos. Trocaderos was easy for us to find and parking was convenient. We arrived early to listen to other groups and get some food. The staff we talked to was pleasant and the food was very good. It was fun to watch the music so close. We really had a good time and watching our son do well was the best part. We enjoyed our evening so much, we are planning on having a party for our parents at Trocaderos.
Seriously? – I started going to this club when it first opened. Parking has always been a problem...plan on using valet. The food used to be great and the staff used to be the best....what happened?? Food is lacking and service doesnt exist....I have an hour for lunch....not two!! Management has apparently gone on vacation. It's a shame....
Fun place, Great evening – We just went to a concert at Trocaderos and really enjoyed our evening. We arrived early and had dinner. I wasn't aware they served food but it was suggested by a friend. Our server was nice and the food was good. We finished and had some drinks before the show. We ending up meeting some very nice people and watched the show together. We all had a very nice evening and intend on visiting Trocaderos again.
great place to work – I work at Trocs and enjoy it there and so do the people I work with. The customers are friendly, there is always something going on, shows or parties. I have worked at other places but like the new management staff at Trocs. They are easy to work with and take good care of our customers. I like it at Trocs and have never experienced a situation that would make me want to change that. My friends stop in often and like Trocs. They have been to a half dozen shows so far.
Great Buffet Bad Reputation – I really enjoyed their Sunday Brunch and Lunch Buffet it is almost as good as the Old Country Buffet you can sit and eat for hours! However I’m disturbed by all the bad things that are said on the internet about Trocaderos. I cannot support a business with a reputation like this! There are negative things posted all over the internet about this place. Check out craigslist or the city pages blog. The comments are pretty disturbing.
good experience, enjoy their food – I have eaten at Trocaderos and like their lunch buffet. They have a good value. I do some work in the area and eat there when I'm nearby. A co worker of mine has also eaten there and gets take out from them and is the one who told me about them. I recently went to their happy hour and stayed for a concert. My friends and I had a fun time and enjoyed it. The employees we talked to were nice. It is a very nice place.
Should have gone to the gym! – I recently visited the warehouse district and went to the lunch buffet at Trocaderos. I found it surprising that it was so dead (no one was there). The buffet was cheap but the food was very greasy and tasteless. I guess I shouldn’t have expected much for the price. When I was in the buffet line a filthy cook came out looking as if he had just slaughtered something. He was really sweaty and touching the food, it was gross!! If I wanted to eat sweat for lunch I would have gone to the gym! Yuk! I tried asking him a question about the food and he actually talked to me as if I were mentally challenged. It was ridiculous! In fact all the staff seemed a bit off. It made me seriously wonder if they are possibly running some sort of rehabilitation program. (Which is great if you’re helping people) But let your customers know, so they know what they are getting into. After reviewing the reviews on here I noticed more than a handful of them (positive ones) seem to be fake and a pretty obvious half-assed attempt to promote your own business. Here’s an idea spend your time improving your food, staff and environment instead of pretending to be a satisfied customer, you’re not fooling anyone. Clown!
