The Chuck Wagon was what we hoped it would be--good tasting burger and Black Russian Sandwich in a diner setting with no fuss!

This place is small but big on great breakfasts. Very friendly wait staff. It appears to be a favorite with the island folks.

My family came to the island a 2nd time. We were here 2 years ago and we found the Chuckwagon then and loved it. We went again this year and we still love it. We went there for every breakfast and a couple times for lunch. This place is great. It is a small place so you might not get... More

The previous reviews were not wrong! This small place rocks out some great food, the blue cheese burger and the black Russian sandwich was incredible. Great Cole slaw btw! Didn't catch his name, but the gentleman waiting on us was so friendly, he and the cook were great with our 7 year old son as well.

My husband and I stopped here on our way out of Mackinac. It's a tiny restaurant but we immediately got a table. The service was prompt and friendly and we had our meals within a few minutes of ordering. I got the Bleu Cheese Burger and it was honestly the best burger I've ever had! My husband got the BBQ...

Good eats on the island. The food here hands down beat the buffet at the mission resort. Skip that ...go here! The only complaint is it is small and tight quarters. It is amazing watching the cook keep all of the orders straight and to see him singlehandedly corral them there orders! That's some good grub!

Amazing food! What more is there to say! Sometimes you can even get dinner and a show...Dylan the cook is very entertaining. Go for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It really is that great!
