Description: Sitting right in the center of the small town of Lewiston, Michigan is Talley's. One of the best small town bar/restaurants you will ever find that will give you the small town appeal of mid America. There is a complete bar, a pool table, 3-4 tv's and a menu but you really only need to know one thing about Talley's, their hamburgers. People drive 200 miles to get their hands around and their mouths into one. Quite possibly the best burger I have had in a long time. Hand crafted one by one and served on wax paper it is hard to eat just one. Juicy and mouth watering and a cold in the can brew along with some fries, rings, slaw is all you need to satisfy that hunger spot. Be prepared to wait on weekends when the game is on but this is a place the locals hang out and drink and eat, although the menu is very limited. A small slice of Americana dealt out on a huge bun, can't get much better than that.

Everybody loves a Talley's burger. Usually we snowmobile there but this was our first spring time visit and loved the outdoor seating. As usual everybody there is friendly and fun.

While vacationing in the north Michigan area around Lewiston our extended family stumbled upon this little gem not knowing it was a world renouned hamburger haven. We noticed a crowd here at 1:30 in the afternoon and decided to check the place out. Two words describe this place, rustic and quaint. How could that be? It is cozy, has tv's to watch sports, lots of tables for families to spread out, nice complete bar, jukebox to listen to, an outside deck to watch the world pass you by and world renounded hamburgers produced in the kitchen to knock the socks off your taste buds. This place has been around since Moby Dick was a minnow and the locals know a good thing when they see it since many of the locals where here eating, dinking, playing pool and enjoying life on a recent late August Tuesday afternoon. Back to the burgers, they are hand pattied and cooked on the grill in the kitchen and brought out to you hot, juicy, delicious and nearly more than a mortal can eat at one sitting. Found out later that this place is an institution to the folks around Ann Arbor, East Lansing and Detroit. People drive hundreds of miles just to wrap their hands and sink their teeth into one of those Talley burgers. Had I known how famous they were I would have ordered two. The menu is limited to burgers, chicken sandwiches, wings, chicken strips, onion rings, french fries and cole slaw all good by the way made better by a glass of cold beer to lubircate your dusty laryanyx. My advise is to bring an appetitie and a bib, be thirsty and order one burger with cheese and lettuce and tomato. Take your time and enjoy every scrumptious bite.
