Brothers Christopher and Patrick Person opened the legendary Tav on the Ave in 1988. Formerly known as the Stone Toad, the Tav was remodeled and went on to be the first tavern in Mankato to offer Buffalo wings. Today, they have served well over 5 million wings along with their signature burgers, sandwiches, roll-ups and more! The Tav guarantees quality that is unsurpassed, rather than the usual bar food.
The Tav on the Ave has been reviewed as "The BEST sports bar in town," "Great wings and drink specials" and "Great for groups and the whole family!"
The Tav offers a complete menu with fresh salads, burgers, sandwiches and more. Tav on the Ave - Great Food. Great Drinks. Great Friends.
Voted 1 of 5 Best Places to Pig Out During Training Camps across the US by Clark Judge - CBS Sportsline writer. "The Tav is a favorite because of the wings. They're more like drumsticks, and they're outstanding. Atmosphere is good, too, with TV screens everywhere. It might push Graney's for best sports bar if it hires Nicky and Aubre."
