The shiny metal Airstream trailer-ish exterior of Kroll's Diner is a beacon of '50s-style dining, luring customers off Memorial Highway in Mandan. Hungry for breakfast? You've come to the right place. The coffee’s hot, and the breakfast menu is full of omelets ($8.59), French toast, signature skillets, pancakes and all the fixings. Don't worry about getting here before noon either; breakfast is served all day long.
Kroll's also cooks up sandwiches, burgers and chicken fingers, but locals come here for the famous knoephla soup ($3.99)—a hearty bowl of dumplings and potatoes swimming in creamy broth. For dessert, try the German kuchen, a cold custard fruit pie on a thick crust. Other German-style entrees on the menu include cabbage rolls and fleischkuechle ($8.59), a hamburger steak wrapped in dough and fried, but they’re pretty bland and not worth ordering. Your best bets are the breakfast items, knoephla soup and desserts.
In addition to the Mandan site, Kroll’s maintains locations in Fargo, Bismarck and Minot.
