Marges on Rose Restaurant Review – La Crosse, WI

Marges on Rose Restaurant Review

I lived here once upon a time. It was where my first job out of college was. I wasn’t so concerned with restaurants at the time as I was with bars and happy hours, and La Crosse was chock a block full of them. (I was in to misbehaving).

Marges on Rose did not exist, and I happened to stop because I was passing through and all the places I used to stop are long gone.

So I wandered in, just after the lunch crowd, but it was still doing fairly brisk business, including a lot of carry out orders from the third party delivery services in town.

I failed to glance at the “Specials” blackboard, and that wasn’t a mistake, but be sure to take note if you stop by.

Despite it being afternoon, I’m always up for breakfast, and always up for Chicken Fried Steak, and if you’re a regular reader, you know I’ve reviewed a lot of them.  See?  (Not even including derivations like wienerschnitzel!)

Was I expecting a variation of “Large Marge” at this diner?  Can’t say that for sure.  But they were crowing loudly about “home cooking” so I was anticipating my steak and eggs with glee.

.And it was great.  Light breading, crispy, home made sausage gravy,  eggs done as ordered and “American fries” (rough cut dice, but shredded hash browns are also a choice).  Rye toast for me, always.  Only $7.75.  Wish I saved room for pie, they had a bunch of choices, and they all looked delicious!

By the way, locals call La Crosse “God’s Country.”  It’s strikingly beautiful, butting up against the Mississippi along US Highway 61.  It’s a great place for a family vacation any season.  For the more boisterous, hit up their Oktoberfest starting in just over a month!
