Everyone Goes Nuts For The Hamburgers At This Nostalgic Eatery In Wisconsin
We’re super spoiled for great burgers here in Wisconsin. From custard stands and butter burgers to awesome greasy spoons and tiny summer-only stands, there are tons of great burgers to choose from at any given moment. Sometimes the absolute best burger comes from the most unsuspecting place. Scottie’s Eat-Mor in Fort Atkinson is just such a place.
Set right on Main Street in Fort Atkinson, Scottie's is an absolute institution. The original diner opened here in 1935 and this same place has been serving up greasy-spoon goodness ever since.
There are just 16 seats in the place and it seems like everyone there knows everyone else. There's chatting and teasing and catching up happening all around. You'll probably have to wait for a seat. Do it - you won't regret it.
Partly because many of them are low on griddle space, diners tend to serve up small, thick burgers. There will be none of that here. The patties are handmade and start at a whooping 16 oz. Sure, they cook down a bit, but these are no mini-burgers. They fill up the bun and then some. They're juicy and flavorful and giant and you'll leave here oh so satisfied.
All the food is made to order right in front of you. The home fries are stellar and full of flavor. And the small cooktop and attention to detail mean you can get the burger cooked any way you'd like. A local butcher provides much of the product, including bacon that you'll still be thinking about days later.
As a diner, this place also serves up great breakfast. As you can see, the portion sizes don't get any smaller at breakfast. This is a "small" pancake.
With giant proportions, a welcoming atmosphere and more than 80 years of history, its not difficult to see why this place is so popular with locals. It might be a hidden gem for those not in the know, but that doesn't keep it from being busy. Breakfasts taste like the ones your grandma made you, and you can see the farming roots in this community both behind the counter and in the customers themselves. This place is well worth a special trip just to try the burgers. Especially for this price!
Scottie’s Eat-Mor is located at 124 N Main St, Fort Atkinson, WI 53538.
