You just got to stop here for the hamburgers, homemade onion rings, deep fried mushrooms, and cheese curds. For the last 50 years I have been going here for meals.

Late's is an absolute classic. Like stepping back in time. The food is straight up Midwestern diner and prices are great, and if you happen to have silver dollars, you can pay in 1960's prices! Try any of their sandwiches and add their bacon. It...More
