Good food between Minneapolis and Stone Lake/Hawyard, WI

We're driving up north this weekend, and looking for a good place Friday night, not too expensive but any type of food. We'll probably take I-35 to I-70. Some towns on the route include Wyoming, MN, Grantsburg, WI, Spooner, Stone Lake and Hayward, but I could be talked into driving a few minutes off route if it's worth it. Anybody done this drive before and know of something good? I've heard of good cheese curds in Grantsburg, but unfortunately, that won't satisfy the SO.

      Sorry this is too late to help you out, but if you drive this way again, stop for great burgers and onion rings at Jerzee's in Spooner, at the hockey arena. It's about 2 blocks west on the main street. For a Friday night fish fry, try the Prime Bar on Hwy 53 in Trego. Definitely stop for cheese or ice cream at the Burnett Dairy in Alpha, a few minutes east of Grantsburg.

      By the way, where did you end up eating last weekend, and how was it?
