This 1942 established burger joint does burgers the same way they did back then. The authentic charcoal grill and the same recipes they started with. You can't get a burger like this any longer. Sure they are small (priced accordingly) people didnt eat like we do in the 40's. So order 2 or 3 they also have doubles. They can't... More

DELICIOUS!! Best chocolate malt I have had in YEARS! My daughter doesn't typically like malts, but she does NOW! We had various burgers, a brat, and a grilled cheese... all were superb! Kids loved playing the jukebox at the counter. Great crowd of people there who enjoyed our selections and sang along. Service was spot on even though it was... More

While driving to Peshtigo to pick up a load, we stopped at Mickey lu's. Excellent burgers cooked over charcoal. Small patties, so I recommend the double (or two). Not cheap, but VERY tasty!!! Not fast if it's busy, but worth the wait. Plenty of oversized load parking.

Do one thing and do it right. The burgers are a little pricey but for a good reason. You'll be hard for us to find a good brother anywhere else

Took our family here and had great burgers and malts, done the old fashion way. Sat at counter. Place was very busy but service was still great and fast. Kids really enjoyed it.

The worn counter by the best seat in the house, that is, watching how the burgers and the buns make their way around the Bar-B-Q was one of the best experiences of my life. Certainly the researched history of this place slanted my view. It happened. I was looking for this place and there it was, I and my gal... More

this is in my home town so I have been there many times. it is not a place to get diet food or vegetarian meals. hamburgers are small with a pat of butter melting under the somewhat crunchy bun, truly yummy. you can watch them being made on the grill behind the counter. you will need more than one. the...

I stopped in this cute place in the late afternoon thinking I would get take out. To my surprise BBQ was real charcoal and the best hamburger ever! The sweet lady behind the counter gave me great information on the history of Mickey-Lu-Bar-B-Que and how my freshly char broiled burgers they make by hand each day. A very great experience... More
