“My last 2 visits were better than the visits in the past!”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

I have been to Ron's twice in the past month- once to celebrate a friend's job success and another for a date night. Both visits were great! I hate when people give places a poor rating on people at the table behind them- it's a bar and restaurant- but more a bar- what do you expect?! Anyways...
I could live off their appetizers alone. I tell everyone who has never been to Ron's before to get the Italian Fries!!! They are not potato, they are like long, flat breadsticks that are not dough-ey in the middle. A sprinkle of (I think) garlic salt and a yummy red sauce served with it YUM. These have never failed. I also enjoy the combo basket-particularly the cheesy cauliflower(which can also be purchased separately.) My hubby likes the cream cheese poppers and we both enjoy the curly fry basket with nacho cheese.
Entree wise I LOVE their Steak Ceasar salad. It's on a platter! Soooo good. My hubby loves the burgers and tries to pick from the specials. Last night it was the Atomic Burger. It was covered in jalapenos- not for the weak!
Their Tour of Teas(Long Islands) is impressive and creative. I enjoyed the Bada-Bing! Coke with extra cherries and cherry pucker. There are so many I want to try but can only handle one a visit-they are huge!
Yes it is dark inside and not great for large parties but 2-4 people can have a great meal and a good time. Both times our waitesses were excellent.
I am not sure what's changed but a few years ago we had quite a few visits that werent great- plastic in my salad, chicken wings still raw in the middle, cranky, inattentive waitresses...
So glad we gave it another chance! We will be back- and probably soon!

“Known for Burgers?”
Reviewed 15 May 2013

Ron's is know in Kenosha for their burgers. I tried them ten years ago and have not been back until now. I remember why. The burger is nothing to write TripAdvisor about. It was greasy, tasted like liquid smoke with a bun that was just OK. We sat in a dark booth that was somewhat cramped. We had a birthday party behind us which must have had more beer than burgers. They were VERY happy and the noise was deafening. The fries were somewhat skimpy. I hate eating out of a basket with tissue. One slice of the knife and the dirty basket is on my dinner. Service was good and attentive. No one asked us how we felt about dinner. I'll go back, but probably in ten years.

“5 by 5 burger”
Reviewed 15 May 2013

They are known for their 5 by 5 burger. Gut buster. Hope you are hungry. Can be very crowded on weekends. Been there many times. Don't go if you are in a rush.

“Great place for drinks and appetizers, but poor service”
Reviewed 24 April 2013

I've only been here to have drinks and appetizers with friends. Which was really, really, really good. But the only thing bad is the waitress aren't trained very well they don't take people in order that they come, and takes a hour to get ONE drink. Is probably another reason that we only get appetizers because it would probably take and extra hour that it already takes to make the small basket of cheese curds and buffalo wings. Great food and drinks, but Poor service.

“Home of the 5 by 5”
Reviewed 23 April 2013

The most famous hamburger in Kenosha. But if you're swearing off of deep-fry or meet or french fries, make this a recommendation to younger, less experienced stomachs.
