The transition from eating in LA to eating in the Northwoods of Wisconsin and Minnesota is pretty darn easy, especially for my tastes. While visiting the area recently, I found plenty of food (and beer) to make my tastebuds happy, while forking over a fraction of what I’ve been used to paying.
My first meal up there was at the Waterfront Bar & Grill in Lake Nebagamon, Wisconsin. After ordering two pitchers of Leinenkugel’s (the best beer in the world) for $6 each, I took a look at their food menu. What stood out to me the most on their menu was the double bacon cheeseburger. At $6, it appeared to be the most expensive burger on the menu. Not too shabby.
I ordered it and kept on drinking my Leinie’s. When it did come out, it was just as I had hoped, save for the glowing pickles. I offered them up to a friend, who quickly removed them from my sight and devoured them. The burger itself was really good. This could have been because I hadn’t eaten a real meal in ten hours and had already drank a few beers, but I think it just happened to be a good bar burger. Despite the trouble with the pickles, I was pretty content with my first meal in the Northwoods.
