“Wow...Great Fried Chicken!!!!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

Friends of ours took us to a really good restaurant last Sunday!!! We had the special which was fried chicken. The crust of the chicken was to die for just the right crunch!!!! Good flavor and plenty of chicken ...none of us could finish it. THE Staff was friendly and they even sent out fruit plates for us for desert because our meal took a few extra minutes..was well wirth waiting for it. I think anything would be tasty and plentiful at this hidden gem!!!!!!!!!

Sophisticated entrees and a pretty good wine list. This restaurant is where I go when I want a special meal when in Mendota

“local says yes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

i live locally and have nothing but great things to say about The Whistle Stop. All of the menu items that i have had (which is most) have been delicious! There are a few good places to eat in Mendota, but this is by far my favorite... but it seems that maybe they could advertise more. i'm not sure if it is good or bad that there is never a wait to be seated or to get served, because of course the prompt service is great, but it's rarely bustling. (Tuesday evening is the exception... 2 meals for $20)
always recomended!

“Great food. Reasonable.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2012

Nice menu. Quick service. Food much better than average.
Only problem was noise from function on 2nd floor.
I would return to this place.
