Quite the burger

Stopped here on our way back to Alex, great burgers. I had avocado burger with onion rings. Pricey for area and $3 up charge for onion rings. Friend had cheddar fried burger that was amazing. Cheese dripping all over the plate, never seen anything like it. Cute inside and good service, but for... read more

We often eat out with friends. Sometimes we wonder where to eat. This place often comes up as a good choice as it has a variety of types of food and we've never had a bad meal there.

Had possibly the worst southwestern salad I have ever eaten, a pile of lettuce , a minuscule container of beans corn and tomato , some corn chips on the edge of the plate. Oh and a dried out quarter of a chicken breast. Had to ask for the dressing, which was a container even smaller than the bean mixture .... More

Don't be fooled by the Pilot truck stop and all the diesel engines running outside. This place has a touch of class. My wife described it as "upscale" (although customers were dressed casual). The decor is relaxed and cozy highlighted by burgundy colors and some brick walls. Relaxing music playing in the background. My wife and I shared the Chicken... More

We looked at the TripAdvisor comments for RJ's, decided upon it, and other than it being somewhat hard to find from our motel, we were not disappointed. Some comments are that it is a little pricey, but from our previous experiences on this trip, prices were in line with what you got - excellent service and huge, quality portions of... More

At the Pilot truck stop off I-94. Good food. Quiet on a Monday night. Reportedly crowded on weekends. Prices are high for the area. Certainly worth a modest drive. Recommend (as have others): Walleye fingers Cream cheese/jalapeño wontons Group had steak,fish taco,fish and chips. All were good.

We ate here while staying at the nearby AmericInn. The service was efficient and friendly and the food was excellent. The menu is geared towards pizzas, burgers and sandwiches but we had main courses. My husband had parmesan crusted walleye that he thought was one of the best fish dishes he has eaten and I had a delicious chicken parmesan.... More

We were staying at a local hotel and this was really the only place within walking distance. The food was great, the staff were so welcoming and we could watch the chef throw the pizza dough in the kitchen. He later came and spoke to us which was really cool. The cheese burger was fantastic as was the pizza. Under... More
