Best burgers in town.

Love the burgers! They have not changed in the 45 years that our family has been going there. The burgers are juicy and so good.

Excellent, excellent burgers. Not a bad appetizer on the menu, but the fried curds are a must. Often wind up here more than once on our yearly trips.

We went to the Downtown location. It was pretty small, and at first I was a little unsure, given that it looks a little run down. It is actually really clean, though, and everyone was very friendly. A lot of the Trip Advisor reviews had states that it was the best burger in the Dells, but you never actually believe... More

This restaurant has great burgers. Our waitress was fabulous. The two downsides to this restaurant were the funky smell of the deep frier and the freezing temperatures. Kids get their food served to them on a frisbee; which my boys thought was pretty cool.

Went to dinner with spouse and two kids. Three of us had burgers which were average. Our teenage son had the Cubano sandwhich which smelled great and everyone else wishes they would have ordered. Waitress service average. Meal with app and drinks, tip for four people $70. Would go again and get the Cubano.

To start out with, Monks in downtown is a bit small as it is very narrow but quite long. But don't let this deter you! The atmosphere is fun and the food is even better! Prices were very competitive to boot so it's a 'No Brainer'! Definitely check out the burgers! Cheese curds are great too!

The food is good enough, nothing spectacular. We had burgers and wraps and things. Service was great and the meal was timed perfectly. We chose a booth in the bar area so we could keep an eye on the sports on TV. However, by the end of the meal everyone at the table was freezing. Even the waitress commented on... More

The burgers are even so good! Eight people in our group and everyone raved about the food. The downtown location is full of character. Definitely at the top of our Dells list now.

Everyone's food was very good! We would definitely go back again. I had the California turkey burger and it was Awesome! The best burger I have had! Homemade potato chips and fries were very good. Lots of TVs to watch your favorite sports team while you eat. I would highly recommend eating here..
