Seymour, Wisconsin: home of the first burger. So you know Wisconsin does burgers right. The truth is, there are just so many great hamburger places in Wisconsin. But if you had to choose 10 to eat at, here they are.
1. Pete's Hamburger Stand
This stand has been around since 1908. They serve hamburger simmered in onions. 118 W Blackhawk Ave, Prairie du Chien, WI 53821.
2. AJ Bombers
A wide variety of burgers is just what you would expect at this kitschy joint. Rockets full of peanuts stream across the restaurant. 1247 N Water St, Milwaukee, WI 53202.
3. Krolls West
If you ever get to Lambeau, you'd be a fool not to check out Kroll's. We recommend dining in their old school dining room, where booths have bells to call waitresses. 1990 S Ridge Rd, Green Bay, WI 54304.
4. Kopp's Frozen Custard
You would be mistaken if you thought Kopps was only about their amazing frozen custard. These burgers will melt in your mouth. 7631 W Layton Ave, Greenfield, WI 53220.
5. Dotty Dumpling's Dowry
Of all the restaurants on this list, this place has the most diverse list of burgers. Some extreme toppings include bacon mayo and deep fried pickles. 317 N Frances St, Madison, WI 53703.
6. Wedl's Hamburger Stand
This mom and pop hamburger stand has been around for 100 years. And while they pretty much only serve burgers, the burgers are so great that you won't want anything else. 200 E Racine St, Jefferson, WI 53549.
Rachael Ray (yes, that Rachael Ray) called this the best burger in America. Ground short ribs and caramelized onions make this mouthwatering burger. 1 S Pinckney St #107, Madison, WI 53703.
8. Monk's Bar and Grill
Large, juicy burgers are their specialty. Paired with beer-battered french fries, you won't be able to get enough. 220 Broadway, Wisconsin Dells, WI 53965.
9. American Legion Post 67
These fresh ground patties make all the difference. This roadside stand is open from May through October. 129 S Main St, Lake Mills, WI 53551.
10. Oscar's Pub and Grill
Gourmet burgers and brews make this a popular joint. Definitely check out the Big O: chorizo, bacon and a couple types of cheese. 1712 W Pierce St, Milwaukee, WI 53204.
