Wisconsin Steakhouse Burger

Wisconsin Steakhouse Burger

With the rich mushrooms, the Emmentaler and Aged Cheddar, and the bite of the horseradish, this burger pays homage to the old supper clubs of Wisconsin. Just one bite and you’ll be transported to the candlelit tables, leather seating, and old structures of the Northwoods.
