Ridott Corners Tavern

On the way to Galena yesterday we stopped at the Ridott Corners Tavern. It's a real hidden Roadfood gem, at least I had never heard of it until it was mentioned to me by Jeff (Buddy Roadhouse) and Danny (ChiBears15). Thank you friends, for the recommendation. This was a terrific burger. 




No fries, but the chips were a good accompaniment.







There is just a very small grill, but boy, does it (and the cook) do a great job.

    Glad you enjoyed Ridott's Corners.  Thanks for the tip of the cap.  I feel like a wider shot of the building surrounded by farmland would have illustrated just how truly hidden this Roadfood gem really is.
    According to Ridott's owners, back when the Chicago Bears held their summer training camp in Platteville, WI, the players would jump in their cars on the last day and hot rod it to their bar.  Last guy there had to pick up the tab for the entire team.
