Our favorite place to come for breakfast on the Island. It looks very small from the outside, but inside there are plenty of seats - tables, booths and countertop seating. Friendly service even during the busiest times, and food is made to order and delicious.

We stopped here for a quick lunch based on the other Tripadvisor reviews- glad we did! This was a busy place but we found a couple seats at the counter- the burgers were some of the best we've had!!! The pretzel buns made them even better... Service was fast and friendly!

Based on Trip Advisor reviews we had breakfast at the Chuck Wagon. Very small but very good food. Very reasonable prices. We noticed quite a few island workers stopping by for "to go" orders.

Our waitress was quick to take our order. We got our breakfast fast and weren't disappointed. Tiny diner with a big heart. Next time we go back to the island we will try their famous burgers!

We were told early in our stay on Mackinac Island that the Chuck Wagon had the best burgers in town, but because it is only open through lunch we missed the opportunity to go on our first couple of days. We finally got a chance to visit at the end of the lunch hour and squeezed in to sit at... More

This is probably the smallest restaurant on the island, but don't miss it! Locals and tourists love their breakfast, but get there early for a seat! The staff works their butts off but are still so friendly, and the prices are super affordable. It is typical diner food with a little grease and lots of love. Be sure to try... More

Great food, atmosphere and service. Will be back next time I visit the island. I was told this was a Mackinaw island classic and it did not disappoint.

We recently went with a group of 8 for lunch. Friendly staff and quick service. Pretzel buns top an assortment of great burgers. My husband enjoyed it so much we went back for breakfast the next morning where we had the breakfast sandwich and cinnamon roll French toast. Great diner style place for quick breakfast or lunch!!
