This is a great little stop, just a short walk from the Kohl Center! The burgers and chili are excellent. I had the Kobe burger! A great choice!

This place has a great location on campus in downtown Madison, makes some of the best burgers I have ever had (try the Melting Pot), has a great beer selection (23 last I checked), and always has solid service. However, because of the huge number of bars around (especially the ones appealing to students with large amounts of cheap beer), this place gets overlooked. Don't make this mistake- order up a burger, a Spotted Cow, and some curds or fries, and enjoy a great Wisconsin treat. One of my favorites when I lived on campus and is still so today.

A colleague suggested this place and I was very surprised at how good it was. The burger choices are one of the best I've ever seen. The food was great and the fries were perfect!
I highly recommend the Orange Creme Shake.
Easy parking across the street. This is a great find.

One of the best burgers I've had in Madison! Service was a little slow but as long as you're not in a hurry it is a great place to enjoy a burger and a beer.
