Great meal, every time

There is very little ambiance at Schatz, but who honestly expects that at a truck stop? It is your typical diner, with both booth and table seating. The service is excellent. It appears that the waitstaff does not have assigned sections, rather they collectively cover the entire restaurant... read more

There is very little ambiance at Schatz, but who honestly expects that at a truck stop? It is your typical diner, with both booth and table seating. The service is excellent. It appears that the waitstaff does not have assigned sections, rather they collectively cover the entire restaurant together. It is not uncommon to have someone take your order, and... More

I usually love this restaurant. Everything I get is usually great. However, this last time was such a disappointment. I was starving so I went here knowing I would get enough great food. I decided I wanted eggs and bacon. It took amost 45 minutes to get the food for the three of us. My bacon was ordered crispy but... More

Schatz's is good anytime of the day, but I love to go there for breakfast food. The 99 is my favorite. While we where in Minot for a work trip, the food at the hotel was not great for breakfast options and we stopped here knowing the food was good! This place never disappoints! Who wouldn't be happy with carmel... More

food was okay for the price. It was a bit greasy. The service was disappointing unless you are a regular. You regular patrons were seated immediately while others waited. Even if you ordered first the regulars food was delivered first and your food would be delivered cooled down and stale

The Schatz family has made this a must, truck / car stop over the decades. Even if you are on a tight schedule and grab a quick bite for the road, they are made in the Schatz Econostop kitchen... I suggest a wrap, they are big enough to share and easy to eat on the road. Sitting down in the... More

Friendly staff. Food is average good, nothing spectacular. Busy place in a good location. A few heart healthy options would be great. Best to tip at table and not on credit card. Credit card tips take a few extra steps.

We stopped here on a Thursday evening, was served quickly and had good comfortable tasty truck stop fare for our family of four. The service was friendly and responsive. We then stopped Sunday morning, waited in line for quite awhile and then was placed in a booth.... I am a XXL guy and it was very tight, eggs Benedict were... More
