Says About Us

¡Hola! I am so excited to be part of the beautiful Gun Lake community. In the short time that our restaurant has been open we have been very pleased to receive the support and friendship of both year-round and summer residents as well as campers and day tourists.

I am a native of Honduras, Central America, but I have now lived in Grand Rapids, Michigan for more than 30 years

We've been in twice since the new owners. Great experience both times. We had our usual breakfast favorites the first time and tried the Mexican menu most recently. My wife had the chorizo tacos and I had the wet burrito el pastor. Fantastic!

Free homemade chips and salsa, great Mexican food, and fantastic service in this very familiar old eatery that's been fixed up inside. Still the local breakfast joint in the mornings but in the afternoon and evenings it becomes a delightful little Mexican restaurant. Can't wait to go back again

Owner Lucy Kessler has reimagined Sandy's Country Kitchen with a Mexican flare, now as Gun Lake Cocina ( does that rhyme with casino?) . I came on a Sunday morning and ordered huevos rancheros, a traditional Mexican dish with fried eggs on a slightly tart tomatillo sauce over tortillas. The sauces were made in house, fresh and not overly seasoned. An authentic Mexican restaurant is more than welcome in this spot.

This is the best food in the Gun Lake area! I have been coming to Gun Lake my entire life, and I was absolutely thrilled to see this restaurant open. I ordered tacos for a large group. We had many types of tacos, and all were completely fantastic!

I ordered two wet burritos and two orders of tamales to go and they said it would be ready in ten minutes. It was ready in less than that. In other words it had to all be pre made and nuked to be ready that quick and it tasted like it. Worst $50 I've ever spent.!

I ate here today and enjoyed every bite! I ordered the Carne Asada taco plate with rice and beans. All of it was very tasty! The only recommendation I would offer would be to marinate/season the carne asada to give it flavor!! The owner was very friendly and communicative. She said she is going to make Pazole ( soup) on Sun. It will b available after breakfast! I’m definitely going.

We tried the tacos, and a giant burrito. The food is amazing!! Also it is a BYOB! No 5 dollar beers here. The staff are so friendly, efficient, and experienced. Try it, you will see what We mean.

We used to frequent this place when it was Sandy’s so we thought we would give it a try. We waited a long time to get menus wasn’t offered a menu or the complimentary chips and salsa. I guess the owner thinks it’s more important to “gab” rather than wait on customers. She had her son helping, he didn’t seem interested in waiting on us either. We waited about 15 minutes total…. That’s ok, won’t be back and I’ll take my business elsewhere.

I am so happy that we finally can get great tacos here at Gun Lake. They have barbacoa and Lengua!! Fantastic. I hope for Tripa one day - maybe if everyone asks for it. Authentic and outstanding. Best place on the lake.

This is an amazing new restaurant! I’m not sure why a few people are leaving negative reviews because there’s nothing negative about this place. Keep it up 🙂
