This place is a good option for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Breakfast has your basic selection, all is good with good portions. lunch and diner are the same menu with your expected items for a burger joint. Burgers, sandwiches, dogs, along with a variation of sides including fries, rings, chilli-cheese fries, etc. Again the portions and food are both good.... More

Returning after many months and things have changed, not for the better. Whoever is doing the cooking there knows ZERO about a Schoops hamburger. The food was better then McDonalds but thats not saying much. My guest got a loaded burger, upon inspection we discovered we were lucky enough to get the heel or(Butt) of the tomato. The waitress got... More

Just stopping for the night and saw Schoops shiny building and hand made hamburgers. Had to stop! Good burgers, very nice staff!! Not sure why some people are complaining about prices? $8.99 for a bacon cheeseburger isn't too bad. Glad we stopped!

We stopped for dinner to see what this local chain restaurant was all about. The decor is very much that of a 60s diner and that's fine. We were on the late side of dinner and the staff seemed only modestly happy to see our party of 7 come through the door. I was disappointed from the beginning when our... More

Living in NWI Schoops has been a longtime favorite of many locals. The burgers are fried to crispy edges, but remain juicy on the inside. Always has interesting soups. The restaurant has the old soda shop feeling. Good shakes and Green River soda. Service is alway good. Great breakfast also.

I grew up on Schoop's and consider them the best hamburger I have ever had. However, their prices are now outrageous. I got a regular hamburger, fries and a chicken salad and it was $17.94 not including tip. I will never go back again!

Burgers are tasty, but they now add fries to the price making it an expensive burger, unless you want to fill up on greasy fries. Staff is friendly and polite, but have had issues there of them not following up for refills, etc.

The burgers are thin and crispy, just how I like them. The homemade soup is always delicious, with chili available everyday. You can end the meal with a delicious shake. Breakfast is also great.

Their burgers are always fresh, although I prefer their Pork Tenderloin! Service is always quick and staff is very friendly. Good value on their baskets!

At Schoop's Hamburgers in Portage, IN, we serve fresh, tasty, and affordable old-school hamburgers and more in a friendly environment. Join us for a meal in our restaurant today.

Harkening back to the diners of a bygone era, our burgers are always fresh, never frozen, and cooked to crispy perfection when you order. Grilled to be a little crispy around the edges, nice and juicy in the middle, and overlapping the edges of your bun - our burgers are filling and delicious every time. We even have our own butcher and hand-form every patty just for you.

We also offer a full menu of sandwiches, salads, sides, shakes, and more. Try a hand-dipped Hershey's shake or the popular Green River shake with your meal. Double up your burger or order a basket of chili cheese fries or onion rings to complement your sandwich. Stop by for cinnamon swirl pancakes or eggs and hashbrowns with a side of toast in the morning.

Our streamline, stainless steel restaurant transports you to another era. Our service is always attentive and helpful, and our food delicious. Join us for breakfast, lunch, or dinner today!
