No Buddy. GPS took us out south to I-94. What a fiasco.

Pizza thoughts... I think the balance of ingredients was off because of the thin, thin crust. All I remember tasting is tomato sauce.

Perhaps you should remove the nipple from the ketchup bottle....

In addition to showing logical routes to Pewaukee from Wells Brothers, Google Maps also lists several Racine-area pizzerias with 4+ ratings.  Perhaps they can be added to the Wednesday Pizzas with Danny lineup.

Even with a 1:45 drive to get there, Wednesday's with Danny is totally worth it.

Absolutely. He's The King of Roadfood, you know.  What a great time. Tables for 11 prevent conversations from one end of the table to another but it was a great time with great company. Hope these work.

Thai chicken with cilantro and peanuts

The rain and road construction gods were against us from the start.  Moments after pulling away from the curb, the skies went from cloudy to ominous; the rain building from a drizzle to a downpour.  Our GPS fluctuated wildly, initially showing us arriving at Wells Bros. Pizza ten minutes early, then 20 minutes late, then only six minutes late, and finally settling on the 20 minute estimate which proved to be the case.
 
The rain came and went throughout the trip; the delays compounded by multiple exit closures once we reached Racine, due to major road construction.  After a frustrating detour that took us through downtown Racine, passing two iconic Kringle bakeries (closed for the day, natch) and some other interesting neighborhoods noted for future exploration, we finally reached our destination.  Of course the rain picked up exponentially as soon as we reached the curb, just to let us know who was in charge (What fools these mortals be...).
 
In spite of all that, I knew we were in for a good time as soon as I saw the fully armed and uniformed security guard standing outside the building, ala Doe's Eat Place in Greenville, MS.  We accidentally stumbled in on Wells Bros.' Wednesday Night Pizza Special, offering all 16", two ingredient Pizzas for just ten bucks!  The downside was that EVERYONE in town knows about the special, so the place was loaded to the rafters, and Pizzas were taking 40 minutes or more.  No worries, that's why appetizers were invented.
 
Frankly, the apps (fried eggplant sticks and garlic bread) were a little underwhelming, but the Beer Cheese and Brat Soup was outstanding.  ChickenBoy would have appreciated this soup; rich texture, but not overly thick, complex flavors, and so many tasty Bratwurst discs you got at least one in every spoonful.
 
Soon enough our six(!) 16" Pizzas arrived, mostly filling the long table from end to end.  They were consistent with a style of pizza I've only seen in southeast Wisconsin (i.e. Maria's in Milwaukee), featuring a paper thin crust, practically non-existent, yet sturdy enough to support the ingredients, even in the middle squares.  The barely there nature of the crust allowed us to eat vast amounts of pie; way more than we (I) normally would in most other places.  In spite of the mass consumption, (plus dessert pie, Tiramisu, and a hunk of Chocolate Lovers Cake) we walked out completely full but not bloated.
 
The ride home was a lot easier.  We took surface streets all the way south to Kenosha, then cut back west to I-94 to head south to Chicago.
 
FWIW, one of my favorite Roadfooders, King T, has proclaimed Wells Bros. Pizza one of his favorite thin Pizzas in the country.  I heartily concur.  Many thanks to The King Of All Roadfood, ChiBears15, for introducing us to Wells Bros. Pizza.

Buddy,
 
Not just a "security guard," that was a Racine County Sheriff's Deputy.

Who cares.
 
What we really need to know is if there's any controversy between Wells Brothers and Nonna Wells.

Based on the Yelp reviews, it doesn't seem like there is any controversy at all.  I wouldn't mind trying Nonna Wells though.
 
When are we doing Luisa's in Kenosha?

Any fish fry lovers out there? http://milwaukeerecord.com/author/caleb-westphal/ 
I love Caleb's reviews. Originally from Fond du Lac, I would consider him to be Wisconsin's leading authority.
Don't miss his take on our beloved Nite Cap Inn in Palmyra (which JRPfeff missed and I'd be happy to go back to rectify that), Pat's Oak Manor in South Milwaukee, Randy's Neighbor Inn in West Allis, (see page 2) and Clifford's Supper Club in Hales Corners. (page 3). Forget Fritz's Pub unless you get there before their closed forever date of September 28th and since this announcement, it's been SRO and so I think I've eaten my last Fritzburger and fish fry ever.

Not Kenosha; Kenosha County.  But only 15 minutes or so west of I-94 on WI-50/83.  Maybe some weekend I'll do some recon but they don't open 'til 4.
 
But not tomorrow.  I'm thinking about Randy's Neighbor's Inn for lunch instead.

This Saturday, 9/1- Wedl's in Jefferson, WI @ 1:00pm!  Stricken, me & Mr. Maki, Mrs. Roadhouse and maybe others.

If someone told me that a double with bacon and cheese is Wedl's most popular burger, I wouldn't be at all surprised.

I don't opt for bacon on my burger by default.  I love bacon and I love burgers, but they don't always benefit from each other.  Wedl's definitely does (not that their plain burgers are bad!), and the double provides the perfect ratio.
