Consistently good food and great staff

You can always be assured of a good meal here and a friendly, efficient staff. The buffet is good - they are always keeping it fresh, checking the temperature, making sure it doesn't run out. My boyfriend and his dad eat here ALL the time, which is why I know this. :) I eat here periodically with... read more

(The Wilson and Tomah locations are listed correctly on TripAdvisor, not sure why the name on this one isn't) Both my wife and I had breakfast at noon on a Saturday. The place was packed, they were clearing the tables just in time to seat the next group. One thing I noticed is that everyone seemed to be working together... More

We eat at Kwik Trip about twice a month or less but everytime we go Jennifer always has a friendly greeting and always remembers our menu choices! Her outgoing, bubbly personality makes any meal taste better! I manage a restaurant and wish i had 5 of her working for me! The food is usually good, depending on the cook!

We love going here, prices were raised a couple cents the past year, but it's really worth it! The staff here is wonderful! I always get a skillet and it's so good every time!!

Ordered corn beef hash and eggs. Asked for eggs over medium, hash brown potatoes crispy And rye toast. Got eggs over easy, barely warm/cooked potatoes, and wheat bread. Seems like everybody thinks warmed bread is toasted. The cook needs to slow down and pay attention to what he is doing.

Truck stop food. Has buffet. Nothing fancy. Hot chocolates were more than sufficient. Service is excellent and attentive even when busy. We have stopped a few times over the years on trips and always been decent. Easy eats, easy on pocketbook.
