Hey MilwFoodlovers, I have got an out of the way burger for you. I know you get to Trempealeau once in a while. We moved to La Crosse this summer, and have been exploring the area. A few weeks ago we headed to the Trempeauleau Hotel to try the "Walnut Burger," but first checked out the town a little. While at the lock and dam we noticed a little restaurant/bait shop/boat landing called Hungry Point just a few hundred feet away. We thought we would have a beer and watch the river go by before we ate. But when we saw the burgers the kitchen was serving others, we had to try them. They were unbelievable! Plain old cheesburgers with fried onions, but crunchy, cheesey, meaty, melt in your mouth, slide down your throat kind of thing. I know I am going on a little here, but they were that good. No salt & pepper, mo condiments, just some good pickles on the side.
Well, we have been talking about them ever since and wondered if it was just a one time fluke, which has happened to us before. So yesterday we decided to check. Nope -- I took one bite and knew it was no fluke. They were just as good as the first time. We told that to the owner (Teenie - short for Christina) amd she said they will be just as good the next time too. She was pleased with our compliments but not surprised, as she has heard many times how good those burgers are.
So now we will start taking family there. I still want a Walnut Burger really bad, but I am going to have trouble getting my wife to go past Hungry Point.
In short, give 'em a shot. Cheeseburger 5 bucks, add a dollar for fries.
