Slice of Chicago

I'd like to review this excellent pizza restaurant in Sparta, WI. Sparta is a tourist destination for biking, and this is one of the best restaurants in town. My entire group LOVED it when we ate there over the weekend. One person said it was the best pizza she had ever eaten.

Good food and ice cream, but the younger kids working the counter need to provide better service. 3 of us showed up 2 of us got served but the last one had to go to the counter after someone else came in got their order and left, and we had to ask for our drink, they forgot...
I will be back again, just for the fact they are able to provide very good service, just need more training/counter time.

Ginny's Cupboard

Reviewed By ESKK4 - Louisville, Kentucky

We absolutely love this place. The atmosphere is really neat and worth stopping in for a bite. The food is soo delicious! The panini's are nice and crunchy, but still maintain the gooey centers. The bread choices are great and you can't go wrong with any of them. My husbands favorite is their chicken salad sandwich and mine is the veggie sandwich on veggie bread. Also, a family favorite all around winner is their tomato bisque soup.
Don't forget to try their coffee/hot drinks out as well. Whenever we are in town, this place is an absolute must for us!

Sparta Family Resaurant

Reviewed By eporter0006 - Grand Haven, Michigan

I was in town on business, and stayed at the Country Inn across the parking lot. I was tired of the pre-heated garbage they serve for the "free breakfast" buffets, so I wandered across the parking lot. Promptly greeted and sat down. Within a minute, I had coffee and a water.

The menu was lacking nothing you could desire for breakfast. I ordered the Irish Omelette and white toast. The dish was tasty and fresh. Potatoes were grilled perfectly.

Highly recommended for a good hearty breakfast!

Been coming here for years, and it's probably the most legit restaurant in Sparta. I have heard of some health code issues, but I feel lime they have made significant improvements to fix those. They are nice people, they have delicious food, and it's pretty cheap. Good dining in or take out and their margaritas are always good to.

I LOVE the in house pizza. Home made to order. Garlic Chicken is a must have. This is better than normal "Hotel Food" It is more of a destination for food.Thank you burnstad87! John takes a lot of pride in the bar & grill and makes some outstanding food there! The brisket should be next on your list of things to try!

Rudy's Drive In Restaurant

Reviewed By Loving C - Sparta

Came to get floats, they were good but I was wondering why they use mug root beer along with the kind they make...no I didn't ask, should've. They were friendly, but I think leaving trays outside when they aren't busy is gross because of the flies climbing all over the condiment bottles. I watched the same girl walk passed the trays and go inside to gab. All in all, we'd return for the floats.

Went to Jake's for the first time this summer after passing it by for the past four summers as I completed my annual reserve training at Ft. McCoy. I can't tell you why I waited so long, but I regret doing so. The food was good and there was a really nice variety to the menu from homestyle favorites to sports bar fare. The staff is friendly and efficient and the facility is clean and nice. I'll definitely be back and will recommend it to my friends and colleagues when I come back next summer.

As always a good inexpensive meal at Culver's. Like other chains you can trust their food quality is the same every location. I will say Culver's is better then McDonalds ad is a tie for me when it is between Culver's and Steak and Shake. I had the double cheddar bacon butter burger with curds as a side. Very good as normal and the servers were friendly and the food came quickly to the table.

Reviewed By MinnScooter - Lakeville, Minnesota

went here the night before Warrens Cranfest they had one large group ..family reunion I think otherwise place was pretty empty. server was great ..took really good care of us with drinks & whatever we needed. I had the ribs special very meaty ribs but neither them nor the sauce had much flavor. salad bar very basic except for the herring.
My wife had chicken fried chicken with white gravy ..again not much flavor I know they have an older Clientele so maybe Bland is what they are trying for.
