I know this is a grill location in a college setting, but egads! the place is filthy.

We ate here with my family of 6. We orders 3 meals, two 4 stacks of chocolate chip pancakes for the kids and a breakfast platter for my wife and I. Everyone was happy with the taste and amount of food and the price worked for me.

Now called bro yos, this restaurant near the Marquette campus is great for breakfast. Lots of choices, very affordable, and huge portions. Go early if you go on a Sunday, fills up fast.

We were in the Marquette area for a wedding and found the Bro Yo. The food was tasty...they had gluten free bread for my breakfast sandwich....and they had peppermint tea! Owner is on site and very friendly. Recommended.

This place has everything. Eggs, bacon, steak, sandwiches, wraps, all made to order so hot and fresh! Prices are good for the amount of food you get. Great place for a quick stop and to fill you up.

Our hotel valet, a Marquette student, highly recommended this place near campus. It was swarming with students, the food was reasonably priced (the $6.95 combos were a terrific deal), the portions were huge (the "mini" omelette was equivalent to a 3 egg omelette in most places) but only a college student on a limited budget could call it "good". Passable... More
