One of my all time favorite Breakfast places! Best place around and very reasonable prices! Always get fresh hot food.

Review №2

I NEVER go to Battle Creek when I'm not working, but yesterday, I wandered around a bit on my lunch break and drove past this place. The huge, retro-style sign got my attention . I thought about going today, which I did. I was pleased to see there's a drive through too! Service was quick. My order was already up when I paid. I got two Olive Burgers, because I was hungry.Wow, those burgers were great! Blows away a typical fast food burger! Hardly greasy, perfectly seasoned, and a decently thick patty for what you pay. Yum! I will return.

Review №3

My first time going here, and on the menu it showed a fish sandwich meal. I love fish so I decided to order one, and it also came with crinkle cut fries. The fries were really good, but the fish sandwich was lousy, there was just as much breading as there was fish and it had been cooked way to long so it was tough to eat. If I go back I'll never order the fish sandwich again!

Wow, I just googled Ritzee Hamburgers in Battle Creek, MI. I have not been there since 1974, but I plan to return now that I know they are open for business. Ritzee Hamburgers and french fries were soooo much better than McD's in the day, which means they are still much better today. Glad to see they are open and yes, I am planning a trip to the Gilmore Car Museum just outside Kalmazoo, MI, will stop by the Ritzee for sure.

This place is full of nostalgia. I'm not sure how the service was back in the day but it's not that great now. We ordered an olive burger well done. Comments came from back in the kitchen, "All our meat is well done". I surely did not need to hear a smart comment. Best thing to say nothing and just give us our burger well done. We ordered two root beers. The girl was going over the order and said, "one mountain dew". My wife said no that was a root beer and the girl said smartly, "yeah I got that". So we didn't like the service and the food was second rate at best. Except for the fries, they were great! We won't be back. They should try fresh hamburgers and all beef hot dogs for starters and have the kitchen staff and counter staff get some manners. This was our first time and last time. By looking at the rest of the reviews I can see we must have gone when the prisoners took over. It's a shame because we love olive burgers and chili dogs but they were the worst. Nothing juicy about that burger. Sat around for awhile I expect.

Review №18

I am a loyal Ritzee customer. Tonight i stopped by. To grab some food. Sat 3 minutes! waiting for someone to answer the drive-thru. When the girl answed laughing so hysterically. you would have thought she was high. Most likely was. Her coworkers in the back you could hear through the microphone laughing as hard as she was. She couldn't understand me no more than I could understand her. When she said laughing hysterically if i wanted ranch. I lost my cool. So i did what i have never done. canceled a order and drove away. like I did tonight. Closeing crew on oct 3 should be fired.

Good food. Good prices. Great staff. It was a part of my teen years & the food is just as good, if not better, than it used to be! I miss the one that used to be closer to my house. The one that used to be in Verona Area on NE Capital Ave.

Great tasting (and hot) food! Like the Friday fish special also. The French fries are good too. Close to home makes it very convenient.

Review №42

Very cool place. The wait staff is extremely friendly and polite. The all-you-can-eat Alaskan pollock fish dinner was great. And it is all you can eat without a catch. Very fast service also. Great place check it out

Review №43

Drive thru was packed we were at the rd...still faster than most drive thru spots with a couple cars and way better food cuz they guts r great!!

Review №44

Food was good but there was someone asking everyone how they were doing while we were there and how was the food but us. Walked by me and my friend didn't bother. So that's why I gave them one star because that is just rude

Review №45

Their burgers and fries and shakes are unsurpassed by any other fast food type establishment within 25 miles. If you're dining in, they'll bring your order to your table or booth when it's ready so you can enjoy friends and family time. You can also tell the lemonade has real lemons in it. Where other places take shortcuts and offer sub par items. Ritzee takes their time to get each order correct and ensure that the quality of the meal you may have had there years ago still exists today. I highly recommend them to anyone who enjoys great tasting comfort food without all the commercialized gimmicks.

Review №67

Absolutely the best hamburger joint in the battle creek area. Everyone must visit and enjoy the wonderful food there and dont forget to say hi to grandma ritzee

Review №68

The service was quick, and friendly. The food was delicious. The restaurant was clean. The only issue I had was with the restrooms. The smell of urine eminating from the mens room was unlike anything i have EVER smelled (besides at work in a nursing home!). The door on the bathroom side of the building would open and the entire dining area would smell like a urinal cake. Enzymatic cleaners for around the recepticals. This is salvageable!

Review №69

Review №75

It is a great place to go because they give you a lot of food

Review №76

Burger patty's or twice a size of a regular fast food places like McDonald's or Burger King. It is to bad there's only one in Battle Creek that I know of or in Michigan or any other state.

Review №77

Great place. Good food. Been going there for years. The owners are great. Great job guys. Love the place.

Review №78

Good food for a fair price, but could use an update inside...

Review №79

Pro's: Good atmosphere. Clean restaurant. Friendly staff.Con's: This might just be a personal preference, but I like my cheese melted on the burger and they have never done that the few times I have been in there. Also a little pricey in my opinion.

Review №80

Best All-In-One Sandwhich

Review №81

I love coming here, please never change. Some of the crew are rude and could care less if ur unhappy or not. The food is what keeps me coming. The olive burgers are and my daughter (picky eater) will eat almost everything made there.

Review №88

Old school burger joint, great prices old school dive feeling in a good way, good old fashioned fried burger, drive thru slow be every order is hand cooked so it's worth the wait. Only drawback doesn't stay open as long as the chain joints, but I understand with it being locally owned
