Fodor's Review

Known for its thick burgers and "moose chips" (a twist on Tater Tots), Sleder's is also a local institution for down-home friendly service. Food has been served in this family-run tavern in the center of the city since the early 1880s; today the menu includes fish baskets and deli-style sandwiches for lunch, a cherry-barbecued chicken that's an ode to the region's cherry crops, and casual Mexican selections, such as three burritos. Deer and elk heads and a bearskin line the wood-paneled walls, and an antique chandelier is suspended above green tablecloths. Outdoor dining is available during summer.
