Hey! Thanks for stopping by! We are Jellybean and Julia's! Well, actually, we are Koli and Cory, and our daughters' middle names are Jellybean and Julia. We Just opened a little restaurant on West Main Street in Anoka, MN in the Anoka Shopping Center... the former Anoka Coffee Shop location. We specialize in BBQ, burgers and fun sandwiches. All of our food is scratch made, even the sauces and pickles.
We started as hobby farmers, making pickles and sauces and selling them at farmers markets. Eventually we turned that into a commercial canning business. Along with that, we did BBQ catering with our trailer smoker. Then we ran a food truck for a few years where we developed the menu we have today at our restaurant. After a few years of taking a break working full time jobs, we dove back into self employment. So here we are! Come stop by, say hi and eat some food!!
Fun Facts about our location:
-We are a very small restaurant with only about 30 seats. During busy times (Fri, Sat, Sun) we do fill up. Not only is our dining area small, but so is our kitchen. When we do fill up (usually all at once), ticket times to get your food can get to be about 30 minutes.
-On the topic of being a small restaurant, we also DO NOT HAVE A PUBLIC BATHROOM!!!! We understand that this is a huge inconvenience & we apologize. We are already scheming ideas to expand to add a bathroom for our customers, but for now, that is not an option at our location. Please come prepared for this inconvenience & we hope that you understand. There has been a restaurant in our location as far back as anybody can remember & there has never been a public bathroom in it. Previous owners have allowed customers to use the bathroom back in the kitchen, but that is actually NOT AN OPTION. It is a serious health code violation & it poses serious safety risks for customers.
-We do NOT take reservations! Seats are first come, first served. We totally love the folks that want to plan ahead and bring a large party to our restaurant. We are so happy you want to eat our food and share it with your friends and family! We cannot save tables though... we can't tell people to leave a table because another party is coming & we can't hold tables in advance while we have people waiting in our entrance. We hope you understand. Again... the whole small restaurant thing...
