Fast Service and Great Food

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.

What can I say other than .Terrific! Very small space with a lot of people trying to get served. There is a small window of time to get meals and almost always a line. It is because the food is good, prices very reasonable, fast service and very friendly.

This place is one of the main reasons I love going to Mackinac Island every year. The pretzel burger was here before pretzel burgers became popular, and they still have the best I've ever had! Awesome!

Not much to say. Price point right on. Burger is ridiculously awesome. I think it is family run. Tiny inside but it's about the food and you can see them make your food perfectly. Staff was nice. They were busy but managed to serve us properly. It was delicious.

The service here was great. They had good humor and were on top of everything. The burgers and sandwiches were very well priced and my club sandwich was among the best I'd ever eaten. Hands down, this is the best restaurant on Mackinac Island.
