Badgerland Bar and Grill

Reconstructed from memory after we lost our notebook...
In a word: At first we thought there'd be no reason to come here unless you were staying at the HoJo's. Later we decided there's no reason to come here, period.

The specs: #0018
Address, hours & details via Isthmus; official web site; Badgerland Bar & Grill on Urbanspoon

JM ate the French dip sandwich with fries and a lemonade.
Nichole ate the soup and salad combo with a Coke.
The bill was $20, or $10/person, plus tip.
JM gave Badgerland Bar and Grill a D; Nichole gave Badgerland Bar and Grill a C- (see our grading rubric).

Latest Badgerland Bar and Grill news and reviews

We were there on a dead Sunday night. The waitress was nice. She made a cherry Coke with grenadine and didn't hesitate to warm up Nichole's cold, cold tomato soup. The soup itself dragged this meal out of the double D range because it was not bad once it was warm.

For the price ($6.50), JM's sandwich too closely resembled a cellophane-wrapped convenience store sandwich and tasted too much like nothing. (Nichole warned him not to order anything "with au jus.")

Bottom line: this touristy joint is too close to high-quality, authentic restaurants on State St. to bother going.

I liked this place okay; there have never been that many people there, but I was impressed with the thai chicken wraps. My friend Katie also likes their BLTs, but...how much can a BLT vary from place to place, right?
