Our Story

Axels was created by a couple of friends who shared the dream of creating a place to work, eat, celebrate and cater to friends around the Twin Cities. Linda Young and Charlie Burroughs envisioned a traditional Midwest casual supper club style steak house. There vision was a restaurant where the meal served to you and sent you home stuffed-a concept grown in the Parker House restaurant where Linda’s parents, Janette and Axel, both worked. Linda and Charlie bought the property of the Parker House and opened Axels River Grill Mendota with friends and family at their sides.
