Butter Burgers Sat, 04/5/03 2:07 PM (permalink)
It seems that a local specialty in Milwaukee is a butter Burger. I had my first at Solly's and Culvers. Sollys really overdoes them as it is impossible to hand eat one because the butter will run down you arm and grease up your elbow. After you OD on butter and burger and if there is room left, try their custard. You will have to have a wheelchair to get you out.

    I also like their fresh-banana malts. Sort of like health food.

    And what do you mean Solly's overdoes their butter burgers????

        Kroll's in Green Bay ... first butter burgers I ever had. I think the one on east side on Main is better. I think that Kroll's West by Lambeau Field is in the same category as a vast majority of restaraunts near stadiums -- i.e. not all that hot.

          Culvers just opened in Indianapolis and I love their butter burgers. All their food is superb. A welcome addition and will keep Steak & Shake on their toes !

            I went to Solly's a month and a half ago with my mom, when we went to Summerfest,the annual music festival.
            I had the double with cheese and a chocalate banana malt.My mom had a single.It happened to be busier tha usual or so the waitress told us.
            After we ate it felt like I was going to fall into a coma.
            I have to say that I think Kopps down the road has better burgers,in my opinion,but I think we went on a day when the place was rushed to serve too many people.
            Kopps puts a pat of butter on the bun before the pattie goes on,But solly's puts a whole stick!

              I give Solly's the nod because you get to choose the type of bun that you want, but I spend more time at Culvers (closer to my house, more seats, more parking). Kopp's makes great custard, but I prefer the burgers at Solly's and Culvers to the dessert plate-sized, flat burgers served at Kopp's.

              On the other hand, the Kopp's family runs an upscale bar/restaurant in downtown Milwaukee called Elsa's (named after the recently deceased matriarch that started the chain). The burgers at Elsa's are considered by many to be the best in town. They are certainly good, and it doesn't hurt that the kitchen at Elsa's stays open for about an hour past bar time. None of the other burgers mentioned above are available that late.

                I did Solly's a few months ago. Too much butter for me. You had to eat it with a fork because the bun was so saturated with butter, it fell apart.

                    Matchstick Man: I like butter, but too much of anything just does not get it. When you have to strain the buns to get the butter out, that was just too much.

                    Personally I like butter burgers, but Solly's overdid it.

                    I tried to ingest but the results lead me to Pepcid, PDQ.

                      Folks, A Cluver's just opened Monday in Corydon Indiana, within a block of I-64 at exit 105. It is right beside the Wal-Mart (Isn't everything next to a WalMart?) we did the drive-thru this morning. Jan had a Butter-Bacon Deluxe Burger and I had a Pork Tenderloin. Both were served piping hot and freshly cooked. I give the Burger a 9 on the 10 scale and the Tenderloin an 8. It was an 8 only because I wasn't ready to "build" it myself.... Meaning they asked what I wanted on it and hadn't focused on the choices, so I got it basically plain. Next time I will be ready and will probably re-rate it then.
                      I'll meet any of you there anytime.

                        I inhaled a butter burger at Culver's (apparently new) in Des Moines Sunday and a "9" is just about right on. This Culver's is located south of I-35/80 (yes, I-35 runs east-west with I-80 on the north by-pass around Des Moines) at exit 129.

                          You know, after both reading this particular thread along with the accompanying photo Michael continues to torture us with I have just one question:
                          This group seems awfully ripe to go in on
                          a group health insurance plan with a special rider
                          for future cardio care. Who's in with me ??

                              You'd have to go to the midwest to find this Wisconsin based chain. Here is their website!

                                    lol@ I95...sure sounds like a wise plan.


                                    And once again, I hear you spadoman. Cholesterol has never been above l42 and l02 of that is HDL comprised, but still had 3 major heart attack within a weeks time in 200l and stents put in. Wandering, high blood pressure can influence the improper clotting of red blood cell and cause them to "thicken" and become like glue, eventually blocking up just as cholesterol does, as well there are a zillion other factors these days. I can advise you all..doesn't matter how old or how young, these things can happen , so keep on a good visitation schedule with your doctor.(I was 40 when mine happened)

                                        Shucks, I thought you were giving your age away. When people used typewriters (an oversized, noisy keyboard that made letters on paper by hitting a "tape" [saturated or coated with ink or carbon]) they were taught to use the l for the 1.

                                            Culvers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am getting hungry just thinking about it!!!!!!!!!!! Only from Wisconsin the dairy state would we think about putting butter on a bun and frying it before you put 2 fresh burgers and Wisconsin cheese in it. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Steak'n'Shake in Seymour Indiana was out of this world when we stopped on the way back to Wisconsin from Tennessee. Great stuff!!!!!!!!!!!!! McDonalds is on the other end a huge dissapointment everytime I go there and Hardees is too expensive when you have Culvers here.

                                              Below is a recipe (untried by me) which I found on the website of a local meat market. I found it interesting for its use of egg yolks(???) and especially the encased butter pats.

                                              Real Hamburgers
                                              10 to 12 servings


                                              2 pounds ground chuck

                                              1 pound ground sirloin

                                              3 tablespoon steak sauce (your favorite)

                                              6 x-large egg yolks

                                              1 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

                                              4 tablespoon cold unsalted butter

                                              12 hamburger buns


                                              Carefully mix the meats, steak sauce, egg yolks, salt and pepper with fork or clean hands. Do not mash it. Lightly form and press into patties. Make an indentation and put a thin slice of butter inside each hamburger, making sure the butter is entirely encased in the meat.


                                              Grill 5 minutes on each side until almost done. Remove to a plate and cover with aluminum foil. Allow burgers to rest for 5 minutes and serve on buns offering all your favorite condiments.

                                                IMHO I think that the cousin to the original Kroll got it right. The joint is called Basil's II in beautiful downtown Founteroy with a mailing address of 5595 South County Road P, Denmark, WI . They have my favorite Wisconsin burger with just the right amount of butter. Its also a tavern and well worth stopping at.

                                                  forget the group health plan with this band of roadfood brothers(and sisters),actually though,perhaps a group rate on cremation services might not be unrealistic. Butter burgers?? sounds like something my ravaged digestion system could use....bring em' on

                                                      Culvers also has a good Norwegian cod fish dinner, not the best but good for a chain.

                                                        We've tried the Fried Chicken, not all that great. The fish is good. we missed out on the Walleye Special acouple of months ago so no rating for it either.
                                                        I like the Double Bacon ButterBurger (Jumbo) I skip the lettuce and pickle but get the rest of the trimmings. Jan usually does the double with everything (but not the Jumbo).
                                                        One thing we don't do very often , but recommend if you like good Custard. Culver's Custard is Outstanding ! A sundae is a real treat..but hard to do after one of the big burgers.

                                                          I tried the walleye and IMHO, you didn't miss anything, Mr. Mayor. But then there are any number of restaurants locally that do a really good walleye, so maybe I'm spoiled.

                                                            Michael Hoffman, there is going to be a Culver's near I-70 Exit 91/Hilliard-Rome Road (the address is something like 1444 Rentra Drive) just outside I-270 according to http://www.culvers.com (which appears to be down as I write ). On a trip to the Troy location the liner on my tray said that one would also open up in Powell in the future. (The last time I visited culvers.com Powell had yet to be mentioned.)

                                                            -James, remembering when he was lucky to "only" have to go as far as Indianapolis (technically, Plainfield) for frozen custard and butterburgers
