Crossroads Lounge

900 County Road 480, Marquette, MI - (906) 249-8912
Posted By Michael Stern on 10/19/2012 3:59:00 PM
A long, low-slung tavern with Keno in progress on one TV and sports events on the others, Crossroads Lounge consistently wins the Mining Journal's Reader's Choice award for Marquette's best Friday fish fry, and it offers a broad menu that ranges from skillet breakfasts to half-pound burgers to hand-tossed pizzas to a bottomless soup-salad-breadstick lunch (for $6.99) every day from 11am to 3pm.

We list it here not for any of those items (which might be good), but for the pasty. It's big and beautiful and culturally correct -- sturdy pastry packed with beef, pork, carrots, potatoes, rutabaga, and onions. Pasties are the signature dish of the Upper Peninsula, and this one-pounder is exemplary, especially inviting because it really is a whole meal and it costs $3.99.

Cross-section pasty view shows potatoes, carrots, onions, and rutabaga laced with pork and beef. Gravy is available, but not at all necessary. This is one moist hunk of food.

Pasties are easy to take home and heat for supper. Crossroads sells them ready for the table, oven, or freezer.

Crossroads' hand-crimped one-pound pasty almost fills a plate, and will surely sate an appetite.

Even if you are not a big drinker, it is easy to spend more on beer than food at prices like this.
