Latest Hooterville Inn news and reviews

JM ate the cheeseburger with a lemonade.
Nichole ate the Braunschweiger on rye with onions.
The bill was $12, or $6/person, plus tip.
JM gave Hooterville Inn a C; Nichole gave Hooterville Inn a D+ (see our grading rubric).

There may not be much Shady Rest in Blue Mounds (the highest point in this part of the state), but there's certainly a lot of bars (and restaurants starting with H) to cover the Green Acres. We stopped at Hooterville on our way through town and it turns out that was a good move.

We ate at a picnic table outside after Nichole flagged down a server and got an order of burger, Braunschweiger and beverages. The cold Braunschweiger on rye with onions was OK. JM got a burger, and the bun was good and toasted, but the cheese was shredded cheddar.  Odd, that. The accompanying pickle was nice, but the whole basket was the epitome of understatement.

Hooterville has been in Blue Mounds for half a century, and they have lunch specials, an awesome fish fry, soup, etc. But just like with Harley Blue, we'd probably rather eat at Hazelnut.

Definitely my favorite "In a Word" yet. Thanks for the laugh!
