    If you want big you could try Tony's

    Here is a video of a girl eating their turkey sandwich- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtEzRTBRC_c

    Everything is huge.

      If you're going from Jackson to Petoskey at what point will you be on I-75? Will you be picking it up in Grayling?

        grouper is right. The normal (quickest) route from Jackson to Petoskey would be through Lansing and on US-127 most of the way, until you hit Grayling.

        These topics have recommendations in the Grayling/Gaylord area:

            I don't really know of anything noteworthy on this stretch (127 or 75) but I've heard good things about the Brass Cafe and Saloon in Mt. Pleasant (that should be about your midway point) and their menu looks appealing - www.thebrasscafe.com (click on the pictures to the right) Anyone familiar with it?
