Sometimes you are hungry late at night and you just don’t know where to go. Often when traveling this happens even to the best of us. Calhoun County has some great choices that are reasonably priced and original and three of the top ten are in Marshall, Michigan.
- Zarzeula’s Has Mediterranean and Spanish foods. It has a bar for those who like to drink and they are reasonably priced from $5 to $22.
- Schuler’s Restaurant and Pub serves up American food and Seafood for those who are not concerned about Price. They range from $10 and up in price.
- Mike’s Place has American Food. It may be a bar but often some of the best food can be found in the local ‘Mom and Pop’ Places.
- Lastly, I would encourage checking out the local party stores. Often they are overlooked because they do not have a place to sit down. If you have a place you can retreat to, this is your best option sometimes.
None of the above are the chain or fast food type of places but you will find great food there. Often you can get a better selection and more pleasant atmosphere because it is local.
Zarzeula’s is number five in Calhoun County yet it is just a local place with a beautiful small town feel. This compares to the Tourist type of local business of Schuler’s which is a close number three but much more expensive.
Mike’s Place is also a small town atmosphere but ranks close to equal to his counter parts. In down town Marshall.
While some party stores may seem less desirable you might be surprised by something special. I’ve stopped in to one on occasion and found things like roasted chicken, hand dipped (locally made) ice cream and believe it or not a fully functioning deli. They also have seating at times.
Late night eating can be a challenge but don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. You never know what special delight you may find. If you travel a lot through an area you may even find a new home away from home.
