Craving burgers and not wanting to drive very far we visited Whistle Stop again.
Tried their 'Top Secret' menu item - Wisconsin Fried Cheese Curds. For nearly $7 we got about 10 super greasy small cheese blobs. I know what a WI cheese curd tastes like and these were not them. This should remain a 'Top Secret' menu item and be invisible on the menu ;) If you want fried cheese curds, hit Dunedin Brewery.
Bacon Cheeseburgers here rock! And they serve them on a nice bakery style roll - love when a restaurant puts some effort into the bun. Burgers come with a side option (coleslaw, black eye pea salad, beans & rice, or fruit) - I now LOVE their black eye pea salad and the BF likes the black beans & rice.
We had decided we were going to try a pudding shot (sounds disgusting, right?) this time but they were not on the menu - boo! I guess we'll have to wait until winter to slurp down thick pudding with a little bit of alcohol in it ;)
Oh my. I love this place!
I have been here twice. The first time, I learned they were pet friendly. So the second time I brought my wiener dog Gracie. I love when I can do that!
The fried dill pickles are so scrumptious I've had them on both visits as well as the veggie burger. I'll tell you why I've had it twice.... organic oats. You can never find a place that wont slap a Boca burger ($3 for a box at your local Publix) on a bun with lettuce and tomato and charge you five bucks for it. I'm impassioned by a good veggie burger made in house!
I'm in love with Whistle Stop, their vibe and their menu. I plan on coming back to try the buffalo shrimp, crab & shrimp burger, black beans & greens salad, fried green tomato salad, fish tacos and oh my the list goes on! And I will do it every time with a four legged friend by my side. Oh and my husband too!
Love Whistle Stop! My latest foodie find!
Love the diversity of the menu, the drink specials, and face-melting dessert options, so I can look past the fact that I'm a long haired bitch seated next to a whirling fan in the smoking area of a dog park. I love dives but there's no getting past my allergies, and hatred of doggy urine soaked mulch chips when I'm trying to grub for the fun of it. Luckily, this was my third or fourth stop so I wasn't hungry at all, and took it all in stride. Wasn't going to admit how delicate I am like some sort of badass, so there I sat in defiance of a hellish allergy attack Â kindly smiling at someones miniature wookie. Hafta admit, the shredded pork tacos were well done, and I'm Hispanic, so thats gotta stand for something! I will most definitely be Bach!Review Source:
