I have not been here for 20 years. Belongs on diners and dives. They still have the double breaded cheese burger! Overall good food! Wheelchair accessible, but a steep ramp! RRR

The food was good! Awesome size portions! My husband liked the coffee and he's picky :) Our server was super sweet and fast! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the carpet throughout was nasty! Just one of those things that bothers me in a restaurant! They really need to rip out the carpet and put... More

Stopped in for breakfast because it was the halfway point for a trip. It's defiantly has home town local joint feel, most of the menu was typical midwestern diner food (which is what I grew up with so thats a plus for me). I ended up getting steak skillet/haystack (potato, meat, egg, and cheese) generous dish portion with a nice... More

Nothing fancy here just home cooking. We stopped for breakfast on our way to the Dells. Everything was very good and the staff was very friendly. Seemed to be the type of place locals visit on a regular basis.

I've been by Ziggies many times but last night the stars aligned so my mother and I could stop for dinner. We were VERY pleased. The two items I was interested in they were out of or had just stopped carrying (hence the 4 1/2 stars) so I went with the standard fried chicken and my mom, fried shrimp. The... More

When you pull up to the place you might wonder if you should go in. The answer is: Go in. This restaurant is obviously a personally owned (no corporation) establishment. Much like you used to find along old Route 66. The menu is actually quite large. The waitress will clue you in on what meals are better than other meals.... More

We visit Ziggie's once a month because we love their fried chicken and their meatloaf is pretty darn good too! Just our two favs. Staff is wonderful and friendly. The Resturant is clean and inviting!

This is a little family restaurant that really lives up to it's name. The pricing is very reasonable and the food is a good, home cooked meal, with plenty to eat. We ate breakfast every morning while we attended a convention on down the road at Sublette since the service and value was exceptional. I am sure the lunch and... More

Good food and friendly service. Plenty of food. Filled up my 14 year old so that's always good. Next time we travel that way we will definitely stop
