On our drive across Wisconsin, we thought we'd seek out a little local place for lunch rather than typical chain restaurants or snack places along the highway. A Google Maps search on my iPhone found Bonnie's, so we took a chance and drove the few miles off Hwy 29 to Bowler. I'm so glad we did! Bonnie greeted and served us herself, and was delightful as she gave us some local history and told us about the fun decor -- mounted animals from local hunters, crafts and artwork from locals, and a fascinating wall of historic photos from the area. And the food is terrific. I was tempted by her pork roast special, but wanted to go lighter for lunch, so I had a chicken breast sandwich. Tender, juicy, and delicious. My brother, a hamburger lover who has lived in Paris for over 40 years, so he's very discerning about the quality of his meats, was blown away by how tasty, juicy, and perfectly cooked his burger was. No frozen patties there, but a real 1/3-pound of good ground beef. My French sister-in-law was equally impressed with her "Victory Burger," as was my mother with her club sandwich, one of Bonnie's specials. Do yourself a favor and get off the highway for some real local ambiance and a great meal.
We chose Bonnie's on the basis of Yelp reviews. We agree. The people are really friendly and real. The food is real, too. We had bacon cheeseburgers with terrific old fashioned smokey bacon. Yum. Also had onion rings and sweet potato fries. Both were really good. Finally, my mom forgot her phone on the table and they tracked us down before we had gotten five miles down the road. Worth the drive from Wittenberg where we are staying.
Good people. Very inexpensive. Extensive menu. Great drinks! Just to give you the vibe, expect a lot of camo and when I was there they were selling hunting knives and cross bows at a table next to the dining room. Don't be afraid! Skip their fish fry's and head for the burgers. Bonnie herself was working and checked on our table several times. Her daughter was our waitress so really a family joint. I told her I found her on YELP and she said "on what?" Will go back if we ever get back to Bowler.
