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!"
