I live in Northern Illinois and I'm trying to find their salad dressing and pasta sauces in southern Wisconsin. I had heard they were being carried by some grocery stores. Does anyone know where that might be?? Please help. Having a craving!!

Michaels is NO MORE, its now a building painted bright orange and is home to another Mexican Restaurant. NORTHWOODS are a changing! We can stay in the big city and see this, why travel 360 miles. UNBELIEVABLE!

We try to eat here every time we come up to stay at the family place in Eagle River. The sauces are so very good and are such a hit you can find them in stores down here in Rockford, Loves Park area of Illinois....More

Great family run Italian restaurant in the heat of the Nothwoods. We especially enjoyed their thin crust pizza. One of the best we have had outside NYC. Excellent bar for drinks or food.

We always feel special when we dine at Michael's. The staff makes you feel right at home. The authentic scicilian cuisine is amazing. We are so happy Michael recovered from his stroke and beat cancer and is back in the kitchen where he belongs!
