In a word: Maybe a quarter too many.
Latest 5th Quarter news and reviews at del.icio.us
JM ate the nachos with chicken, hold the olives, and a lemonade.
Nichole ate the BLT and a cup of potato leek soup.
The bill was $20, or $10/person, plus tip.
JM and Nichole gave Fifth Quarter a C (see our grading rubric).
Fifth Quarter is a spacious sports bar out in Verona near Angel's Wish pet adoption center. We went for an early dinner and found the earlybird dinner crowd was there too. It seems like Fifth Quarter sends busses to Badgers games, offers a sea of mixed drink choices, and serves a broad menu of bar favorites, though these may tend toward bar Flavorites.
Bacon is all over the menu as "pecan smoked bacon," which was enough adjectives to get Nichole to try it. The day's potato leek soup (with bacon, of course) was very good (read: buttery). She also tried the BLT on sourdough. The bacon was indeed tasty, though the tomato and lettuce were pretty sad. The mayo-to-bread ratio was good.
JM got the nachos plus chicken minus olives, a sporty choice (as opposed to other Spice Girls descriptors one could apply). Lots of chicken and cheese, but by the end it did get quite a bit same-y as there were altogether too many onions. By the end, it was so boring he couldn't finish it. The weak salsa did not help matters much.
Overall, not a bad sports bar, but nothing to visit specially either. The service was excellent and honest. And hey, they have Monopoly pinball (although JM did stop before he put $1.25 in).
