I know of no place where you get better eggs, sausage, hash browns and toast. Service is usually quick and the coffee cup is kept full. The wait staff is friendly. It is a Diner style place complete with counter service. 50's and 60's memorabilia and music from the era create a great atmosphere for the baby boomers who make... More

I really like their hamburgers....thin with crispy edges.....shakes were good as well. This is worth getting off the Interstate for.

Going in to Schoop's is like going back to the 50s. Gives me that warm, fuzzy feeling of being young again...and to top it off the service is top notch and the food terrific. Do NOT miss this restaurant if in the area. Their burgers are famous for crisp edges and are huge. Try the chili...you will not be disappointed.... More

Went there because it seemed like a fun place to eat. The food was OK at best. Was not a big fan of the deep fried patty, unfortunately did not agree with me. The fries were good.

We visit MC every few years (used to live there) and stop here every single time! Fantastic food here, something for everyone! The Green River soda is not to be missed-- same for the Irish Nachos!

Local diner setup with a nostalgic atmosphere of the past. The devote is nice and the food is great. This is one of my favorite places to get a burger and a milkshake. The burgers are hand made and cooked to perfection with a crispness to the edge of the meet, it's fantastic. If you are a fan of steak... More

Known for their hamburger, and rightly so. Breakfast is equally good. Nothing elaborate, just simple menu items, very well prepared. Clean, with friendly staff.

Schoop's is a retro place that evokes the 1950's or 60's. Our burgers were tasty, the fries average, similar to a Steak-n-Shake with larger patties and a larger bill. I know the locals love the atmosphere but in truth while nothing was horrible there wasn't anything that would make me come back.

Thank Hoosiercritic
