This is a typical "College-Town" restaurant, where students on a budget simply want food and lots of it on a budget. But the quality of the food (lack-there-of) is not up to par for a true "Weary Traveler". Pros: Convenient location Prices are cheap Cons:...More

Going here was a last-minute decision because we couldn't get indoor seating at a nearby spot on a steamy evening. But-- then we were glad because our food was so good and the old-fashioned dark wood interior made it feel cooler. The Bad Breath Burger...More

We ate the bad breath burger and a ruben sandwich. Both were amazing. Many other items looked appetizing. I will try others if I am back in the area. You must try this restaurant!

On a quest for the best burger. The bad breath burger was delicious, but a little overdone. Great beer selection to accompany the burger. Would rank it I top 25 % of burgers in Midwest, but it was not a top contender.

The ambience at the Weary Travelor is cozy and inviting, despite being one of the more popular spots in the area. It's a great place to have an intimate supper with your date or another couple. Prices are reasonable. Our personal favorites are the Bad...More

Great neighborhood pub! Lots of choices on the menu; my husband chose the Hungarian Goulash and said it was pretty close to what his grandma used to make! I had their hangar steak special (our server had me at 'garlic mashed potatoes') and everything on...More
