This place serves up some mightily fine chicken wings.  And comfort food of all kinds.  There’s always a good ballgame on TV.  The owners bleed Green Bay Packers.  For a time, masks were required.

It can be cold outside and warm indoors. 

Where is this bastion of good cheer and taste?  It rests on a blue island in a red sea.

While the Wisconsin football team is a favorite, the guys who run the place like Twins baseball and Timberwolves basketball.  Oh, and Golden Gophers too!

Dad was from Wisconsin.  The boys from Minnesota.  Then they came to Idaho.

Once a year they wear the green and it’s usually in the middle of March Madness.  A tricolor flies outside.

The hints are obvious, if you’ve ever dropped in for lunch, which begins at 11:30 in the morning, weekdays.  It can also be a place to relax after a day on the slopes.

I’ll note the French fries come in strings and the burgers are a handful.  So, you won’t get three guesses.  One should be all you’ll need.

With the pandemic fading into history, it’s time to get back on the highway and visit many of these places.  If you’ve got a couple of hours for round trip travel, I highly recommend you make an appointment to stop and pull up a table.

If it’s crowded, I suspect you could instead spend some time at a Dollar.

If you know of the place in the pictures, go ahead and leave a comment below.  And tell me what you like best on the menu.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
