1. The Voyageurs' Lodge, Batchawana Bay

It took a group of hardy boatmen to paddle a 26' canoe full of furs and supplies across this rugged landscape and they ate well to fuel their bodies. The Voyageurs' Lodge was founded on the same principles and serves up delicious food perfectly. Their selection of grab'n'go sandwiches are delicious and the menu offers take-out and specials that change daily.  Top it all off with a butter tart -- amazing!

2. Wacky Wings, Sault Ste. Marie

This place is a must-stop in the Soo if you're looking for over 100 flavours of wings with names like 'Megan Fox Hot', 'Volcanic', or flavours like Caribbean Jerk and French Toast. Now with several locations across Ontario, go to the place that started it all -- the Original Wacky Wings in Sault Ste. Marie.

3. Young's General Store, Wawa

Sure, it's technically not a restaurant but this iconic old-fashioned general store can satisfy your hunger. Right inside the front door is a barrel full of pickles gently marinating in salt brine -- nothing says 'road trip' more than eating a pickle at Young's General Store. They have a great selection of ice cream, fudge and beef jerky.

4. Agawa Fish and Chips, Pancake Bay

Enjoy fresh, locally caught hand-battered whitefish and lake trout from Lake Superior's waters, with fresh, hand-cut french fries. Be sure to purchase some smoked fish for a snack on the ride later. Find non-fish options including burgers.

5. Sunset Noodle House, Batchawana Bay and Sault Ste. Marie

Vietnamese cuisine

Yup, a noodle house on the shores of Lake Superior. Stop for delicious authentic Vietnamese cuisine at either location. Pho, Bánh Mì, Pad Thái or Bún Chả Giò (Vermicelli with Spring Roll). This is a must-stop.
