Just had a burger at Fred's..always good food. Plenty of things on the menu to choose from if you aren't in the mood for a burger.

A big juicy burger made your way with specialty toppings make this stop a must in Burlington Wisconsin, we found atmosphere friendly ordering fun but be aware that exit could be slow as we had to wait in line to pay for our meal at the bar.

Coming home from Door County as huge Cowboys fans we wanted to stop by here to see Tony Romos stomping grounds. The minute we sat down at the bar I knew we were in trouble. The bartender Trish was very rude and unfriendly. My husband had his Cowboys stuff on and she could have told us where all his stuff... More

Went out of our way to stop for lunch while on the way to Madison. Good burger, without a doubt. Best in the world claim is kind of dubious, unless you're Buddy the Elf! This is a two handed burger (Cowboy Burger) and very juicy (messy?). You'll need a fistful of napkins to clean up. Curly fries are OK, hand... More

Whenever I am in Burlington, Wisconsin I have to stop at Fred's! The burgers are amazing, they have Homemade Potatoe Chips, along with countless drink specials and Sprecher ON TAP! I usually order the Roasted Garlic Burger or Cajun Burger, but last time I had the Picco de Gallo burger with Avocados and it was amazing. Fred's is a timeless... More

We've heard from a few people to try this place and so we decided to try their carry out. I was pleasantly surprised! I wasn't expecting much because the outside makes it look like a bit of a dive, but the food was great. The burgers were awesome as we're the mac n cheese bites. The only thing I was... More

My husband and I stopped here today for burgers, and what a treat! I had a regular cheeseburger with LTM, and my husband had the Fred burger with grilled onions, ham, and American cheese. We tried the green beans, too. Everything was fantastic! Juicy burgers! Right down the street is a small park on the river, where we decided to... More

Best burgers and homemade chips. Stopped here with family and friends. Great place and friendly staff. You have to order from the bar so can't understand why people complain about the service. Duh.

The food is good, we had great burgers, and some of the best homemade chips I've ever had, however the service was slow. They also brought our chips, fries, etc. out first and then the burgers came out about 10 minutes later, when the fries were cold. Strange serving system.

I have to agree with one other submitter about the service. The woman behind the bar, whether she's the manager or owner I don't know, but she's very rude. For customers that have never been there before just a heads up. You have to write down your own order and bring it up to the bar. The line can be... More
