Reviewed 2 April 2018 via mobile

Great place to eat. They have a great selection on the menu. You must try the pork tenderloin sandwich & side winder fries. Or sweet potato fries. Also try the chicken fried chicken! Too bad the wedge salad is off the menu

We stopped here for a quick meal after a gas stop during our travels.
Good tenderloins, small choice of draft beer, locals do a lot of take out.
Close to the highway but sort of hidden. Someone at the gas station steered us here.
Worth the stop. Our wait person didn't know much about what beers they served but I did ok.

Merle's is a sports bar & so much more. GREAT food well served by attentive wait staff. I'd go there just because I'm hungry. Sports or news on the TVs is a side issue. Wonderful place for families too. We've eaten at Merle's maybe three times since they opened. (That is alot for us cause we;re homebodies)

Peculiar is a small town without many restaurants or other businesses to attract interstate traffic. Merle's is definitely worth the short detour, merely 2 minutes off the exit to the east. A variety of diner style food awaits complimented by good service and a family style atmosphere.
