Sunrise Family Restaurant is not only suitable for family dining, but it is also family owned. I have gone there for both lunch and breakfast and have not been disappointed. I really enjoy gyros and Sunrise does have those, as well as Chicago dogs. (You got to be from Chicago to understand the assembling of a great Chicago dog!) Portions... More

The owner was really nice and answer all my questions about what was on certain sandwiches and so forth. The down side is the menu doesn't listed what a sandwich is made up of. But the owner did say they just upgraded their menu and they are redesigning the inside look of the restaurant. The food was pretty decent and... More

My son is a Western student... This is the only place we met to eat. It is easy to get to which also makes it a good road house. The food is good to excellent depending on what you are ordering. We have eaten here six or seven times and service has always been good to excellent. Highly recommended. You... More

Good food, friendly atmosphere and waitress was great. They serve breakfast all day. I ordered the popcorn shrimp and had to have a takeout container.

Great for travellers like us as it is in town, just 1/2 block off the highway. Very clean restaurant and bathrooms. Excellent welcoming staff and server. The food was yummy. Terrific omelets and good coffee at very reasonable prices What more could one ask for?

The food is okay. It is a Greek style restaurant with a large menu and lots of choices. The staff is friendly but short-handed. The prices are, in my opinion a bit high for a mid-level family restaurant. Do I go there often? No. There are other places I can go and get better food at a better price. If... More

Food is pretty good for diner food. Portions are on par with diner food too. My husband says the food errs on the side of a bit greasy, but that is not a deal-breaker. But it sometimes upsets his IBS. Anyway, there service is the issue. I have lived here for 21 years. It is really the owner's daughter I... More

We stopped in here for lunch and we got a very pleasant surprise. The food was above average and actually got to us while it was hot. This is a huge change from the norm in Macomb the land of subpar food and lousy service.

We have dined there a lot. Service is great. Food is good and you get your orders very fast. It is very close to WIU campus. It had been busy every Sunday morning we have ate there.
