Flat Burgers in Milwaukee?
I'll be heading to Wisconsin for two or three days this fall. The main purpose of the trip is to see the Eagles play the Packers at Green Bay, but my friend and I will be staying in Milwaukee, a city I've wanted to visit for roadfood purposes practically ever since I started reading and posting on this site in the late 90s.
I won't have time to make more than three or four roadfood stops while I'm there. I definitely want to try the custard at Kopps and probably Leon's as well. I'm considering the old-fashioned, upscale German restaurant that is reviewed on here. Mazo's is also a possibility because of how close it is to Leon's. And if I can talk my buddy, who has no interest in Jewish deli, into it, I'll want a corned beef sandwich from Jake's.
I've developed a fondness for the very-flat style of burger that only seems to be found in the Midwest, at places like Carl's Drive-Inn in St. Louis.
From photos I've seen, it looks like the burger at Kopp's is worth trying. Are there any other burger joints in Milwaukee or between Milwaukee and Green Bay that specialize in that super flat, pressed-down style of burger?
Thanks, and here is a photo of the double cheeseburger I had a couple years ago at Carl's:
