I stumbled across this little slice of burger paradise a few months ago on vacation with my kids. I'm a huge burger fan but nothing could prepare me for these puppies.

All the toppings, and a light layer of butter...ok, not so light...more like a drenching, made my two (yes two!) burgers almost fatal. The freshest meat I've had on a burger in ages. The kids loved theirs too! It was more then I expected and a delight to the senses. The freshest of toppings and the choicest meats make it my #1 burger.

If you are anywhere near the state of Wisconsin, make this a must do on your list of fine dining establishments.

This butter burger was sliced in half before all the butter atop the burger had a chance to melt into the meat.

The cheesehead is the ultimate Solly's burger: 2/3 of a pound of ground sirloin, grilled mushrooms, stewed onions and raw onions, Swiss & American cheese. Plus, of course, plenty of butter.

Seeing a sign for homemade pie, I couldn't resist.  The reward was an excellent slice of cinnamon caramel apple pie.

Almost all the seating at this busy burger joint is at one of the two large U-shaped counters.

Solly's used to be known as Solly's Coffee Shop.  Now it's Solly's Grille.  Inside, the food is as good as ever, and the counter seats are a diner delight.
