Foursquare Tips

  • The Heartthrob burger is a close second to the Melting Pot, especially if you like the spicy. The chili is also excellent.
  • Try the Melting Pot, their best-selling burger.
  • Fabulous veggie burger but really messy. The onion rings my friends ordered were delish! Exactly how onion rings should be made. Will be back!
  • Melting Pot Burger with a Hopalicious (or Ballistic IPA if available). Enough Said.
  • Fantastic Friday night fish fry! Best fish I've fastest outside of New England! Lovely atmosphere, and love the old music. Best place to eat downtown.
  • The melting pot and toadstool burgers are unreal. Definitely start with a sample basket of fried goodies.
  • True Madison legend.
  • Spend your money elsewhere! Hour time limit at your table, even when eating dinner. Our waitress warned us when we had 30 minutes and 15 minutes left. So much for Wisconsin hospitality.
  • Best cheese curds. Ever.
  • Friend Mac n' cheese bites= the best food ever made.
  • Exxtra picklesSssss
  • 25 beers on tap!
  • Veggie burger is good!
  • If you're a cheese-lover.. get the melting pot! Soo much love
  • I also like the patio
  • Burgers are the best in town. Bartenders are very friendly even when place is packed with anxious Badger fans.
  • Classic burger is fantastic with their bacon mayo. Friendly FOH staff.
  • Poutine fries & a Bayou burger! Fries were very good. Burger got a little overwhelmed by the hot sauce but it was very good. I know why this place is popular!
  • Always thought they made dumplings the make my own burger was amazing. With sweet potato fries. So yummy!
  • Sometimes a salad is a good option here
