“What is that God Awful Smell ?”
Reviewed 29 September 2011

Custard is a religion in Wisconsin. It is in the pantheon of all that is sacred to Wisconsinites: Brats, The Green Bay Packers, deer hunting season, muskies, and talking about the weather. Custard? In California, we call it soft serve. But here it can be a transformative experience. Alas Hefner's could be great. But when I walked into the restaurant to order some custard, I was assaulted with a smell that can only be described as dead mice in a wet basement. Wow. Talk about a mood killer. Should you go there? I can't recommend it.

“Awesome Burger Place”
Reviewed 1 October 2008

If you're looking to cut calories and watch your fat intake, do not go here and expect to find something other than ketchup. Hefner's is as close to a 50's burger joint as you'll get. I love their cheese burgers; get it with 'the works.' The burgers are huge--bigger than a splayed hand--and wont make a hole in your pocket.

Hefner's has burgers and fish sandwhiches, grilled cheese and a kid's menu. Their appetizers are the best I've ever had and the custard is the best. I love their flavor of the day Puppy Chow.

During the summer months Hefner's is host to a variety of musical acts in their parking lot. I would totally reccommend Hefner's to anyone who is in the mood for a good burger and/or ice cream.
