I've been a big fan of the Chuck Wagon way back to Jesse's Chuck Wagon Days. I read some of the other reviews and must say a few things. First, you are on Mackinac Island - a unique tourist location ironically at the very crossroads of fur traders and Natives back to the 1600's. There are no vehicles here. Your food probably came across with you on the ferry or the Arnold cargo transport earlier in the day or week. There is an abundance of eateries with unique fare, many of which I enjoy as often as I can on our annual trips to Mackinac Island. So, if you are looking for lobster and crab omelette - it's up the street, to the left at another super place. This is your regular restaurant with eggs, burgers and sandwiches. They are all excellent! Always well cooked and watching a short order cook work that grill when it's busy is a marvel every time I've seen it done. Food, service and price are above par - especially price in a place where fudge sells for more a pound than your burger and fries. (did I mention there's just a few fudge shops?)
Finally, what I love about this little place (it's small) is if you have some time to just sit and sip your coffee - you will get caught up on what is happening, who just arrived for the summer or left for the winter, and all the local society information. This is a tight knit little community that as I sit in February and type this, has a population of probably less than 400 for the entire winter - and you can't just hop in your jeep and drive away - you are there and there you stay. So, the stories you hear are funny, and unique to this little place. Order a regular meal and just sit back and enjoy. I will eat at the Grand, I'll bike all the back roads, I'll check out all the gardens - but the highlight of my trip is breakfast or lunch at the Chuck Wagon. I hope it never goes away!
