about mendoberri

We believe you can have your vegetables and eat them too! What we mean is that you can maintain a busy lifestyle without sacrificing quality and nutrition in your diet.

mendoberri offers two straightforward options: eat-in or carry-out.  If you're eating in for lunch, place your order at the counter and we'll bring it out to you.  After 4:00 PM, we provide table service--reservations appreciated but not required. If you’re ordering lunch or dinner for takeout, come in and place your order at the counter--most menu items can be ready in about 10 minutes. You can also order in advance by calling 651.209.3270 and then swing by to pick it up. Sorry, we do not deliver yet! But if you’ve got little ones in the car or don’t want to bother coming in, just let us know and we’ll bring it to you curbside when you arrive.
