Best place to grab a quick bite

Really good burgers, fast and very freindly service, very cramped but it is worth the tight space. It was very reasonably priced as well.

A low key, no frills little place that has good burgers & great bloody mary's. A good place for friends, couples or solo.

Fantastic! This 1950's style diner serves burgers and sandwiches. It is usually packed, but worth the wait. Sandwiches are about $8-9 a piece, which sure beats the $15 lunches down the street. We stumbled across this place walking down the Main Street. We didn't wait long after we ordered either. Very good and highly recommended.

I am an employee in Mackinac Island. My season will never be complete without having lunch here in Chuckwagon. They really serve the best burger in town. I just love this place very much! Good service! Good food! Recommended!

Really good food, really small but the cook got kind of cranky when we ordered an omelet. The next morning we went there again and I didn't feel comfortable ordering the omelet. My husband ordered it and the cook got cranky again.

Very small diner in downtown Mackinac Island. Fast, friendly service with outstanding burgers. They also serve breakfast. You may have to wait in line at lunch time, but it is worth the wait.

In the summer of 2014 we were lucky enough to eat at chuck wagon! It can be easy to walk by, so make sure to look for it while on Main Street! (It's right next to the haunted house) I still think about this burger every time I order a burger! So good. Please go here.

We stopped in for lunch while on our vacation. The place is small, but we found two stools at the counter. The Black Russian sandwich was out of this world! Would definitely eat there again!

Best place to have breakfast, a small hole in the wall that serves a quick, inexpensive breakfast that always brings us back whenever we are on the island. Nice wait staff, and owner always says hello! Don't miss this one if you are staying over night!

We ate breakfast here both days we stayed on the island. The food was hot and delicious and the service was friendly and fast. It seemed like a lot of locals at here, as the servers and cooks greeted almost everyone who came in the door by name and they sat at the bar and shared stories. It was a... More
