Trumble's is the classic basic dinner. With a solid menu of basic comfort foods and excellent pies this a solid choice to stop when in Albert Lea. The service is excellent and the food is above ave.

The beef plate is something I could eat every day, simple yet always fulfilling. The food here makes me happy.

I found the food good but very basic and nothing special. Delicious Wisconsin cheese soup. Our waitress was lovely and efficient.

Nothing unique nor outstanding here. Diner-type food and service. At seven pm several specials of the day were no longer available.

Oh definitely no change in the recipe. It's still the same. It's the best part of our pies! If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to call me. 507-373-2638 just ask for Dinah.
