If you ask a local where to eat, chances are they will tell you.. The truckstop. Locals have their item on the menu that is their go to item. Portions are generous and prices reasonable. Staff is friendly and hardworking. Open 24/7, it is a popular after bar spot. Breakfast served all day - 99 and 109 are local favs.... More

This restaurant has been open and family owned since the 1970's. My dad remembers coming here almost every day for lunch with his dad during his summer job in high school and college and my mom ended up working here as a server for a short time in college. Every time I come to Minot we always have to make... More

Service was good. Food is excellent and so are the prices. The waitress offered gravy as a side for the fries which was comforting to the Canadians I was dining with. Good trucker/family establishment to dine.

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
