Nestoria, MichiganApril 20th, 2015 – Now that was SOME burger! Okay, I know you hear it over and over again – “That’s was the best burger I’ve ever had!” That’s not what I’m hear to tell you. A little over a week ago I took a drive up to the Copper Country and stopped at a Burger Joint in Nestoria–which is about exactly 1 hour from Marquette in Baraga County. The atmosphere was great, the service was excellent, and the food was to die for!

Not only did I fall in love with the burger at this place–I LOVED the delicious home style fries! They were thick and full of goodness. My buddy that was there fell in love with the food and service too! It’s been about 5 years since I’ve been to this place, and it was even better than I had remembered. It’s a great place to stop on your way to the Copper Country.

Just remember–bars that serve food often have the BEST food.
