“Best breakfast on Mackinac!”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Friendly service and the best breakfast you will find anywhere on the island! The place is a little small so get there early to make sure you get a seat! Their burgers at lunch are awesome too.

“Best Burgers on Mackinac Island!”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Small diner with big service and big sandwiches! Our yearly trip to Mackinac Island would not be complete with a burger from The Chuck Wagon. People wait in line for a table or a stool at the counter. It is clean, decorated in the horse and chuck wagon theme, friendly staff and the best burgers in town! Service is quick! Make sure you stop by the Chuck Wagon. They also service breakfast, which we heard was the best in town!

“Delicious Food, Awesome Staff”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

Ate here twice during a two day stay, would have been a third but they were closed on our departure day.

Good selection of breakfast and lunch options, decent prices. There seems to always be a wait as the joint is very tiny, but man do they put out plates of food!! This is not a place to hang out with friends, you just get in, eat and get out, which is completely fine.

The burger was scratch made and delicious. Cole slaw had great flavour. The Chuck Wagon breakfast special was a little greasy, but hey, I didn't order oatmeal. ;-)

Waitstaff is friendly and they look like they like their jobs. Splitting up the bills was no issue. If only all waitresses could be this nice!

Will eat there again without a doubt!
