These 20 Places Serve the Best Cheese Curds in Wisconsin

In the dairy state, there’s no more beloved snack than the cheese curd. Whether fresh from the dairy or deep fried and served with an array of dipping sauces, the cheese curd cannot be beat. Other states try to replicate them, but those glorified cheese sticks can’t compare to the ooey-gooey, fresh-battered curbs that we have in abundance. Of course, most things are good deep fried – the real test of the curd is how much we devour them fresh and often straight from wherever they’ve been made. So fresh they still squeak and so delicious we eat them by the pound.

In no particular order, here are some of the places around Wisconsin that serve up the best cheese curds you can sink your teeth in to – fresh or fried.
