Das Steinhaus in beer-loving college town of Marquette serves a German- and European-inspired from-scratch menu featuring locally sourced, seasonal produce and grass-fed beef, pork, chicken, fish, and duck. Enjoy some venisonwurst, jager schnitzel, pan-seared duck breast, and other specialties -- and wash it all down with one of their 50+ bottles of Michigan and European beer or a craft cocktail.
Food trucks are a pretty big deal almost everywhere nowadays, but in the UP they're still in short supply. Dia de Los Tacos, which posts up at various places in Marquette, is also probably the most well known. But in addition to being a food truck rarity, it is -- more importantly -- a Mexican food rarity. While the UP certainly has some interesting ethnic influences, Mexico is not one of them. Dia de Los Tacos is the real deal, serving up tacos like chorizo with queso fresco and black beans with poblano chiles, jicama slaw, and chihuahua cheese.
