Emma Krumbee’s is an American restaurant in the Howard Johnson’s hotel in Rib Mountain. It has good baked goods and breakfasts.

Not fancy, it’s a staple place to eat at anytime, but breakfast is perhaps the best there. With their homemade baked goods and yummy french toast, they make you feel right at home. Everything is reasonably priced.

Emma Krumbee’s, even with its strange name, is a good place to get a nice breakfast or lunch and have a nice talk with family or friends.

Taco Bell on Grand Ave

Oh, do you remember the Taco Bell on Grand Avenue in Wausau? It has been there, serving us cheap tacos and burritos for well over 30 years. And as of now, the building is gone–smashed to the ground, flattened. Is Taco Bell on Grand Ave. no more?

Hardly! They are building a brand new building in their more modern style, just to serve us better. I’ve heard that sometime late this summer we might see the return of the cheapest bean burrito around.

Seriously, even though the food is no big deal (no deal at all really), it’s a great value and it will fill you up. And, the Taco Bell on Grand Ave. is an icon of the Wausau area, and a fond and lovely one at that. So, though it will have a new face in a few months, fear not! The happiness of an .89 taco will still be satisfied. :-)

El Mezcal is at 3100 Rib Mountain Drive in Wausau, WI. A little to the north of Kohl’s and Barnes and Noble, tucked away on the west side of the street.

This little restaurant is overlooked by a lot of people as just another Mexican restaurant. But, this place is a gem: it has authentic Mexican food, the atmosphere is nice, and it’s rather cheap.

I will recommend the rice, which was moist and had a hint of spicy but not too much. The tacos were also very good, staple food. The refried beans were tasty and just the right consistency to pick up on their homemade tortilla chips without falling off. Their salsa was good as well, though more medium to mild than hot.

Tasty authentic Mexican! And good for the pocketbook.
