Stopped here after seeing something about cheap Vegas eats. And being a packer and badger place. Burgers were cooked the way we like it. I will stop here again

Ive been going to the badger cafe for years now, there was a time they had the lowest price in the city but due to the inflation of living the prices have gone up. But the flavor is still by far the best

We had New York strip steak with green beans, french fries, Texas toast, and a wonderful salad all for $10.99. The food was excellent, and the service was wonderful. Just know that it is a little whole in the wall bar and restaurant, but definitely great food!

A small diner with great burgers, wings, and breakfasts – all at amazing prices. The servers are very friendly and make you feel at home. A daily special for only $6.99 comes with a salad. I was sorry I didn’t have a big enough appetite the day they were serving the lasagna – it looked delicious! After your meal you... More

We frequent a wash and fold laundry in the same run down shopping plaza where the Badger Cafe is located, but have never noticed it before. I was initially hesitant to even enter, but it turned out to be a pretty ordinary coffee shop that primarily serves as the restaurant for the adjoining Rum Runner Lounge. My wife ordered coffee,...

We found this place by accident when looking for a place to eat near the Pinball Hall of Fame. What we found was a great selection of diner food and amazing wings and fries. Noted that the prices are great and they are open 24 hours.

This is the restaurant next to the Rum Runner (LOVE IT) -- they have great food and friendly service. The fries are a must for me every time I'm there - they're delish! The blackened chicken wings and build your own burgers are also good. Oh and the cheese curds -- sounds weird but so good! I've honestly never had... More

We were in Vegas when the Badgers played Kentucky in the final four and luckily someone had told us that there was a "Wisconsin Bar" in town. Rum Runner Packer Backer Bar isn't within walking distance from the strip, but worth the taxi ride to be with a hometown crowd that night. The beer and mixed drinks were reasonably priced... More
