My only complaint, and really minor is that don't have any sitting at the bar but my favorite is the Burgers. I usually get the basic cheeseburger and then you can add any toppings you want. Brats are good too

This place has hardly changed in forty years, the grilled red brats are simply the best with a great hard roll and a variety of mustards. (If you use ketchup, they'll make you leave Wisconsin). The french fry portions are huge but I prefer crispier...More

It’s a typical place for Madison, definitely worth a visit. However, I didn’t like at all the burgers! So, I would just suggest going for some drinks!

We stopped for something to eat before going to a concert. The food was really good! We had burgers, cheese curds, pretzels and onion rings between all of us! I loved the food. Great taste and would come back again. I can imagine that it...More
