This place is phenomenal! If you like jerky, this is the place to get it. Everyone is always very friendly and upbeat. I like that they give samples in case you want to try something new. They also ship, but I haven't tried that yet. I love this stuff! so good!

We stopped here because we needed to fill up on our drive home, and I am really glad that we did. This was an awesome shop that smelled amazing from all of the freshly smoked fish and jerky inside. I picked up some fudge and jerky to take back to Detroit. The woman working was super friendly and very pleasant... More

Just happened to stop to get some cheese curds and saw the smoked fish and jerky so bought a bunch of stuff and it all turned out great. The smoked trout was outstanding; if I ever go back that way I will take a cooler and stock up. Later I saw all the good reviews on tripadvisor and they are... More

The smoked fish is top notch, fresh and very reasonably priced, and you can purchase chunks or whole salmon, whitefish, and trout. The fish pate has been very good in the past but I think someone added too much pepper in what I purchase yesterday. Their version of a slim jim in mild or hot is very lean, tasty, about... More

I haven't been to Gustafson's in awhile, but the jerky is so good that I sometimes call and order a few pounds shipped to me. My favorites are the buffalo and the cajun. My father-in-law always insisted that we get some slim-jims when we stopped too. Their jerky is cut into large, thick pieces. We describe it as more like... More

This is a must stop when in the U P of Michigan. Always fresh jerky and cheese curds. The pork is the best when they have it. Good food to munch on when motorcycling in the U P. They also have BP gas and other stuff to eat and drink. Only a short drive from the Mac bridge.

We always stop when motorcycling in the UP, and pick up a pound or 2 of jerky & curds. Always friendly service and GREAT tasting snacks. Pork and turkey are my favorites, cajun is pretty good too!

The smoked fish is awesome and their home-made "slim jims" are the real deal. A must stop for any one traveling across the UP. Also bought their seasonings and packaged dried soups.
