Reviews of the Lunch Box:

Your Hosts: Dave and Julie Budas

...and our fantastic staff


Our Mission

We specialize in fat and calories - simply prepared food with that homemade taste you've been looking for - served with an attitude not unlike your mother's:
"Shut up and eat it!". (If you don't like your meal, there's peanut butter in the cupboard.)


Our Claim to Fame

"Julie Budas is a
soup-makin' genius."
- Traverse Magazine.


Our Philosophy

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body,
but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, beer in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn and screaming "WOO HOO, WHAT A RIDE!!!"


Our Advice

Come on in and have a seat.
You're better off here than across the street.



Motorcycle Parking Available

We don't care what you ride. We all share the same wind.
