We ordered a full rack of ribs and a chicken & rib combo with white meat. Soft drinks were $3 each and the white meat option over dark added an additional $1.75. The fountain drinks lacked fizz but the food was good. French fries came with each meal. The ribs were covered with in a nice bbq sauce that had... More

This place has been around for years because you get what you expect, good chicken dishes. We had the quarter chicken dinner and fries, chicken Caesar salad and the chicken club sandwich. All were good and served in timely fashion. They have two sauces, their original and a country style. I've always thought the original sauce is bland, like unseasoned... More

I've been coming to this restaurant for 40 years and the food is always delicious. This chicken is juicy and the skin is to die for - even if one shouldn't eat the skin. The coconut cream pie is the best in the world but all pies are very good with fluffy pastry that melts in your mouth. Take out... More

Place is quite big and has plenty of room for large groups! Have been for breakfast and dinner! Milk shakes are great! and the 1/4 Chicken dinner is our staple! Always room for a piece of their pie!

Haugen's serves chicken really well, served hot and fresh with the usual accompaniments. Better value than Swiss Chalet and a great selection of pies

Haugens is a seasonal roadhouse type restaurant known primarily for its chicken and ribs. I find it disappointing although it has a wide following amongst locals and those heading north to cottage country. The chicken is Ok but nothing all that different from chicken I have had in other venues. I don't like the sauce served with it at all... More

When I visited, it took 55 minutes for 2 quarter chicken dinners. The staff was not friendly and the food was cold when it arrived. The building should be renovated and it needs a new menu and staff team. Sivas Chicken, the restaurant up the road is far superior, I would go there next time

The food was just ok. This place is getting dated and loosing its charm. Remodel the exterior and the interior. Along with some food menu upgrades. You need a chef Ramsay makeover.

My wife and I made a point of going there and were both somewhat disappointed in the quality of the food. Possibly we expected too much, but the chicken was so dry it was difficult to chew and swallow, left most of it on my plate and wasn't even asked if everything was ok, which it obviously wasn't. The fries... More

No idea why locals love this place. The food does not taste as good as Swiss chalet, and the restaurant really needs an overhaul. I would never return.
