Well, we did go to Burlington, and we tried to squeeze ourselves into Fred's at about 1:40, but one look at the line of people waiting to order and the lack of seating and we knew we wouldn't be eating before we had to leave to come back. So we headed back west.
Sorry we didn't get to meet everyone. We were really looking forward to it. We did find a nice neighborhood bar in Edgerton on the way back. It looks unassuming enough from the outside.
Inside it was obious someone dropped a lot of money into remodeling. There was new pine panelling on the walls, new tin ceilings, ceiling fans and about 6 large flat panel tv's on the walls. They also have a cozy outdoor eating area that is nicely landscaped. We opted for the air conditioning.
They were advertising their new menu so we decided to check it out. Loyd got the Italian beef with hot peppers and a side of cheese fries.
He loved the beef and the peppers were great. As for the cheese fries, in his words "everything tastes better with nacho cheese". I opted for a burger, since I was in the mood for one, with a side of onion rings.
The burger was of the frozen variety but was still thick and juicy. It certainly was no Fred's burger! Overall, we were impressed with the Horeseshoe Tap and will be back. It's about time Edgerton got a decent place downtown. Can't wait to see posts from those who actually got to eat at Fred's!
