Over the summer an online video series called 'America's Best Restaurants' came to Rochester, Minnesota. They had decided to feature a Rochester favorite: Whistle Binkies on the Lake! And the video is finally here.

If I remember correctly they filmed in the afternoon on a weekday. The restaurant was closed off to everyone except a few customers and staff. Whistle Binkies made sure that their regulars were there during filming.

'America's Best Restaurants' Visits Whistle Binkies on the Lake in Rochester, MN

During the episode, host Jaqueline takes a look at just about everything Whistle Binkies on the Lake has to offer.

She spoke with Kelly, who has worked at Whistle Binkies for 11 years. While they chatted Jaqueline got to try their My Honey Flatbread, which I now want to try really badly. It looks so good!

Then it was time to meet the owners, Kelly and Eric, who bought Whistle Binkies on the Lake just a couple of years ago. However, both of them have been in the restaurant industry for a while. Kelly said that she's been in the restaurant biz since 15 and Eric has worked at Whistle Binkies on the Lake since 2006.
