Star Bar closes (Paris, WI)

Perhaps some of the Milwaukee and Chicago-area people have stopped there:

    What a shame. I know David and Stephanine and had absolutely no idea this was coming down the pike. They served an excellent bluegill platter/potato pancake, a great Reuben with Vienna corned beef, and a respectable brat. The cream pies were my favorites. Star Bar was a local gathering spot for area farmers, seniors, and truckers. It will truly be missed.

    Passed it by many times on our travels to and from Milwaukee, but never stopped there. It was highly thought of on LTHForum, and was the preferred stop rather than the Brat Stop, two exits south.

    Guess I won't get to find out for myself now...

    This is precisely what I love about small family places. How often do you see that on a menu? Nearly never. It's exactly what I hunt down when I menu surf. It's what brings me back.

    Sad to see a family place close down.

    Ate at the Star Bar a few times on the trip back up to Marquette U. after a weekend home. I believe it's at the same exit as Mars Cheese Castle.

    That is correct. They are directly across the street from Mars Cheese Castle, although based on their recent demise, it seems a moot point.

    Disappointedly,

    Buddy

    P.S. On a happier note, just south of Mars is a hole-in-the-wall joint called Bobby Nelson's. They are a small, family run cheese and sausage shop also serving up many Wisconsin made delicacies. It is a fun stop, well worth jumping off the interstate for.

    That's the "mit or mittout" place, right? I've always wanted to stop there. We're planning a trip to Milwaukee in November for Trainfest. Perhaps we'll stop there for some snacks to enjoy while ensnarled in Marquette interchange construction ;)

    That's the one. The "mitt or mittout" refers to whether or not you want garlic in your sausage.

    As for the interchange construction further north, as stricken detective said, it is almost complete; a wonder to behold and a pleasure to drive through.

    I would most definitely be "mitt."
