There are plenty of foods that Wisconsin is famous for, but perhaps our best is the butter burger. The perfect butter burger has a slightly toasted bun, great meat, and–yes–tons of butter. If you don’t need a napkin, it’s not a true butter burger. Here are the 10 places in Wisconsin to get the very best butter burger.
1. Solly's Grille
Located at 4629 N Port Washington Rd, Milwaukee, WI. In operation since 1936, their butter burger has been featured in numerous media outlets.
2. Kopp's Frozen Custard
Located at 5373 N Port Washington Rd, Glendale, WI (and a few other locations). Yes, people come here for the frozen custard, but the butter burgers are one of the very best in the state.
The East location is at 1658 Main St, Green Bay, WI--the one featured in the picture. The West one is right by Lambeau. Could this be the best burger in America? Many of you seriously think so.
4. Mihm's Charcoal Grill
Mihm's is located at 342 Chute St, Menasha, WI. As one reviewer put it: don't wear anything too nice when you eat here, because butter will be dripping all over ya.
5. Village Inn
Village Inn is located at 1706 Wisconsin Ave, New Holstein, WI. Sure, they boast that they are good at pizza and steak sandwiches. But have you had their butter burger? It's phenomenal.
6. The Drift Inn
The Drift Inn is located at 1535 N Ashland Ave, De Pere, WI. Does this place win awards for the setting? Absolutely not. Does the butter burger they sell melt in your mouth? Absolutely.
7. Gosse's at the Northwestern House
Located at 1909 Union Ave, Sheboygan, WI. If you want to go get a drink, why not go to a place that actually has good food, too? We found that the butter burger here is spot-on. Note that you can order it with less butter...but why the heck would you??!!!
8. Chester's Drive-In
Chester's is located at 1504 Eastern Ave, Plymouth, WI. Truly, they do not make these kinds of places anymore. And the butter burger? Sheesh. It's cheesy, gooey, drippy goodness.
9. Late's BBQ
Late's is located at 1924 S 9th St, Manitowoc, WI. Why haven't you been here already? You are foolish. Known for the BBQ, they put together a pretty darn good butter burger. If your heart can handle it, order the cheese curds, too. Because Wisconsin.
10. Cinder's Charcoal Grill
Cinder's is over at 221 S Kensington Dr, Appleton, WI. Sometimes places say that they serve butter burgers but it's questionable whether there is any dairy on the thing. That will not be the case here. Not even close.
