Wow!!! What a great find on Mackinac Island. Small but oh so great!!! Continuous stream of people in and out. Great fast service and food. Staff very friendly and efficient. Another great run business. I had the rib eye sandwich which was piled high with thin sliced steak topped with melted cheese and grilled onions on a toasted pretzel bun... More

This place is always packed. Not much room inside. I had a burger and it was very tasty. They close early so get there in time.

The Chuck Wagon is a very small place with some tables and two counters - much like the old time luncheonettes. We loved it! Had lunch one day and breakfast another. The cook is amazing as the food is cooked right there in front of you, it's hot and is quick. The waitresses are pleasant and the prices are reasonable.... More

Locals tell you to eat here...that's a good review in itself. Very small so either go early or later than regular breakfast and lunch hours. The burgers are great...served on pretzel buns!

This is my 5th year in a row coming to the island and my first stopping in at the Chuck Wagon. The burgers were amazing and cooked right in front of you. I will definitely be coming back here year after year!

Heard about this place from a local during my 3rd visit, have made a point of coming back on every visit since. If the line is long at lunchtime, see if there's a spot at the counter and you'll have a front-row seat for the line cook's one-man symphony. Burgers are delicious but I hear they're equally popular for breakfast.... More

The Chuck Wagon is open for breakfast and lunch. The small restaurant is ALWAYS packed. The food is outstanding and is very reasonably priced. They get bonus points for having the cook entertain us while he cooks the orders. I highly recommend a visit.

Our family loves Chuck Wagon Restaurant! It serves breakfast and lunch. The meals are fresh, cooked practically right in front of you. My husband's favorite dish is breakfast burrito and mine - blue cheese hamburger.

We were lucky as we walked by the owner called us over and said he could sit us right away. We were starving and everywhere was packed so we jumped at the offer. Tiny black but so cute. The food was great and the prices were very low. A nice surprise for the island! Totally recommend.
