When we pulled in the parking lot on Thursday night, we easily found a spot to park and headed inside. Upon entering we realized that all of Waukesha was already aware of the amazing food as the place was jam-packed! We didn't take into account that Thursday was wing night as well and every tables was crammed with wing eaters.
We headed over to the bar side and looked around to see what our options were going to be for eating and the lovely gentleman at the bar in front of us, offered up his seat as he was "full up to his shoes and needed to go home to loosen the laces." This worked out perfectly and we stole an unused stool from a group of college men and settled in.
We started with a beer or two before deciding to get into the menu. Decent selection on tap - Horny Goat Exposed was my beer of choice and Tiff had a Blue Moon. We then got menus and started the task of figuring out dinner. The bound menu was way more than I was expecting from this tiny bar and everything began tempting my taste buds. I heard they were known for their breakfast but my goal was a burger, so that's what I focused on. The lovely couple seated next to us were regulars and helped us out by sharing their faves.
I decided on the 1/3 lb. Gina burger that had bacon, mushrooms and swiss cheese on it. I added lettuce but I'm not a big fan of onions or tomatoes on my burgers so I asked to hold those. I also decided to sub the fries for haystack onion rings and the entire entree was amazing. The burger was perfectly cooked and the toppings were just what my taste buds were asking for. So juicy and delicious. I made a good choice. (Sorry the pic is so poor, I forgot I wanted to document the food until after I had devoured half of it!)
I also want to go back for their french dip sandwich, maybe a pizza and a few other of their gourmet sandwiches. Overall I was completely impressed with the quality of food, friendly regulars that helped us thru the menu and speed of service. This little Waukesha gem is one that I will have to make part of my regular hits.
