My sister and nephew were have a craving today -- for Solly's burgers. Luckily for us it is close our house, so they asked if we wanted to come too. I've heard a lot about this place, but today was our maiden voyage. Solly's is known -- brace yourself -- butter burgers. In case you haven't heard of them before, here's how Wikipedia defines them:

In the Upper Midwest, particularly Wisconsin, burgers are often made with a buttered bun, butter as one of the ingredients of the patty or with a pat of butter on top of the burger patty. This is called a "butter burger".

Oh, leave it to Wisconsin. A butter burger is not for the weak of heart -- literally. I asked for H's and mine to be light on the butter. He felt robbed, telling me he couldn't believe I'd do that to him. I guess there wasn't enough butter pouring off his burger for him. But I thought it was perfect this way.

Ironically I was across the street with August at the urgent care when you guys were there! (I've never bee to Solly's either)

Firstly, I hope August is okay. Secondly, I've been to Solly's and honestly, it was way too much for me to handle. Buttery to a fault in my opinion. I crave Kopp's like crazy, but once was enough for me at Solly's.

Kopps is still my favorite too. But I think the key at Solly's is to go light on the butter. It's plenty, and wasn't overwhelming this way.
