Latest Keg news and reviews

JM ate the Keg Burger.
Nichole ate the grilled cheese and onion rings.
The bill was $16, or $8/person, plus tip.
JM gave the Keg a C-; Nichole gave the Keg a D (see our grading rubric).

The "wheel," such as it is, has mostly been serving up fly-under-the-radar bars with small grill menus on their walls.  This new tradition brought us to Token Creek, that crossroads you hit on 19 just outside Sun Prairie.

The Keg is not really memorable.  We were there on a football Sunday after most of the games, and the place was nearly empty.

Nichole's grilled cheese was OK.  It had enough rich buttery essence.  JM got the Keg burger, a three-meat affair: brat, ham and burger patty. For as decadent as that sounds, each of the meats is aptly sized and there were not a lot of condiments on offer, so the thing ended up being more greasy than flavorful. 

One real complaint, though, were the onion rings which were as dark as a December sunset.  These had been cooked within an inch of their life, and then another 2.53 cm. It may have been unclean fry medium or too much time in the tub or both, but the effect was a little underwhelming.

They do have Galaga.
