Cheese is great. Fried cheese is even better. I love great fried cheese curds. Being Wisconsin, most places make decent ones. But these 10 Wisconsin restaurants deserve a special shout-out for their spectacular fried cheese curds.
1. AJ Bombers
Light breading lets you really enjoy how delicious the cheese is. Like everything else on their menu, AJ Bombers continues to dominate. 1247 N Water St, Milwaukee, WI.
2. Curd Girl
Curd Girl has answered all of my wishes, because Curd Girl is a food truck serving--you guessed it--fried cheese curds. Oh my goodness are these great! They are individually hand-battered and fried. So head to Madison and follow that truck!!
3. Rudy's Drive-In
Roller-skating carhops will bring the nostalgia factor in this 1930s era burger joint. The cheese curds are classic as well. 1004 La Crosse St, La Crosse, WI.
4. Point After Sports Pub and Grill

These curds are ooey, gooey, and cheesy--just the way that they should be. 7101 S. 76th Street, Franklin, WI.
If you're like me, you might fill up on burgers before getting to the cheese curds. Get the cheese curds. Like everything else Kroll's serves, they are delish. 1658 Main St, Green Bay, WI.
6. Milwaukee Burger Company

Can we just talk about the absolute perfection of these cheese curds? Oh my goodness. Yes, you need to try these. 421 N Casaloma, Appleton, WI.
7. Field to Fork Cafe

Field to Fork is all about wholesome, natural ingredients. But that doesn't mean that they don't ever serve cheese curds. And the question you're all wondering: no, they don't taste "healthy." 511 S. 8th Street, Sheboygan, WI.
8. Sobelmans Pub and Grill

This place got voted as having the best burger and bloody mary. Do they do contests for fried cheese curds? Because the ones they make are phenomenal. 1900 W. St. Paul Avenue, Milwaukee, WI.
Graze serves the fare that you're accustomed to (burgers, etc.), but they do it with excellence. The curds are no exception. 1 S. Pinckney Street, Madison, WI.
Mogie's is tons of fun at night, and what is better to settle your stomach after you have perhaps overindulged on libations than popping some great cheese curds? 436 Water Street, Eau Claire, WI.
