I am not sure WHY I've never been here before. The food and service was absolutely perfect. Where do I begin? We arrived around 5pm on a Monday. Seated right away in a very comfortable booth. Very nice ambience. Our server was very attentive during our entire time there. Ordered the Shrimp Rangoon for an appetizer. Nice and light, not heavy at all. Perfect crispness to them and great flavor. The ginger lemon dipping sauce was very good. Two entrees: 1.Half order of the Shrimp Snow Peas and half order of the fragrant shrimp. 2. Sesame Chicken The fragrant shrimp tomato base sauce might just be the BEST sauce I've ever tasted. A little sweet with a little heat to it. Devine!! The shrimp in both dishes were cooked perfectly and just melted in your mouth. The sesame chicken had the best batter on the chicken. Light and a perfect crispness to it. Best Chinese meal in ages. I WILL be coming back to try more and I WILL bring more people with me. Thank you for a great evening.

Hands down some of the best pizza in Dane county. Most would grab a few slices from here and say oh it's just pizza. But personally I think this is some of the best pizza I've ever had. Almost always slices available for purchase. You want the deep dish (basically thick crust). Dash some of the Oregano and enjoy.

Awesome staff every morning, very friendly, and expedient. This group of baristas never fails to greet, smile, and energize the morning with an engaging conversation. They will compliment, commend, suggest, and encourage you on the smallest detail of your day or coffee. I really love the attention to detail.. Especially the board placed on the counter everyday with the weather, horoscope, super quiz, and joke or cartoon. Just to keep you entertained while you wait on your fabulous caffeinated beverage!
Like most Starbucks, this one serves up some hot caffeinated beverages as well as some tasty treats. I happened upon this place after a long walk from my hotel during a wonderful blizzard that dumped about 17" of snow and actually caused them to close early. Hey, I thought Wisconsin was used to snow? ha ha The workers were friendly and even comped me some pastries that were going to be tossed or go bad because of the early closure. Cool!
The Starbucks next to cops is literally my favorite coffee shop. Starbucks certainly isn't my favorite coffee but the atmosphere is almost always very welcoming and peaceful no matter what time of day. Even when it's busy I can always grab a drink and find myself sitting there for hours on my laptop or just reading and enjoying myself. The staff are really friendly and quick with their service. It's by far my favorite Starbucks in the Madison/Middleton area!

Awesome place.... Best kept Italian secret!! Ran in here on a whim and was pleasantly surprised food was awesome, staff was super friendly and helpful for us newbies!! Thanks!!!
This is my go to place for the best lasagna in town. If you call ahead they will even cook it for you. In addition, they have a decent selection of pre-made pastas and sandwiches to order behind their deli counter. If you have a quick need for garlic bread, sauce, or certain italian staples there is decent chance they have at least one option, but don't expect 10 varieties of olive oil, or the offerings of a full grocery or deli. The staff is nice and helpful. They also don't take amex so bring your visa.

Dhaba Indian Bistro

8333 Greenway Blvd,Ste 100
Middleton, 53562
Reviews:
Came to town for training and the weather turned really crappy and cold. So I was looking for a place where I can find warm and spicy food to get some heat. I am glad I gave this place a try. Probably the best Biryani I had for a long time. Spiciness was perfect and the lamb was melting in mouth. After the spicy dinner I needed some creamy goodness, and Rasmalai turned out to be the perfect choice. Light and creamy with the perfect amount of sweetness. I am so stuffed, I better walk back to the hotel. As a bonus side, they serve local and non local beers and have a pretty rich beer menu. Summary: if you like Indian food come here. You won't be disappointed.
We have a voting system at our workplace that lets people vote on what they want for lunch that day. We try to keep it fair by not allowing a restaurant to win twice in one week. However, if we forget to start a vote, often times we're forced to "Default Dhaba." I'm pretty sure those moments of forgetfulness are freudian slips, because we friggin love this place. Personally, I've found my vice: chicken tikka masala with cheese naan. This amazing combination of bread, cheese, and curry has everything I've ever wanted in a good meal, and then some. I've found some other indian places that have similarly good masala, but the naan stands apart. No other Indian restaurant I've visited has come close to the wonderous naan found at Dhaba.
While staying in Madison, I felt the urge to eat something vegetarian. Indian food was of course my choice and this place was interesting. I went and was seated pretty easily, I ordered the Channa Naaan, which came with a side of rice. It was honestly a little pricey, considering the fact that I could probably make that dish at home for a few dollars. However, it tasted good and the waiter was pretty nice. He even asked what spice level I wanted and when I asked if it was a scale for Indians or white people, he said Indians. I saw a few other Indians eating in the restaurants, which I believe is a good sign. Usually when you go to an indian restaurant and there are no Indians eating there, it is indicative that the food is bad or is primary to western standards. I would suggest this to anyone looking for Indian vegetarian and possibly vegan food in the area!

Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt

6712 Frank Lloyd Wright Ave,Ste 104

Reviews:
This Menchie's location is AMAZING. The Wife and I live dangerously close to Menchies (10 minutes by foot, 5 minutes by bike, and less than 2 minutes by car unless we hit a red light), and so we've been about 5 times in the last month -- don't judge us! The frozen yogurt is some of the best I've ever had (Campus Candy is the only other fro-yo place in town that I've been to that can even compete), and they constantly change the flavors to keep life interesting. What's that? You want barista blend coffee-flavored fro-yo. You're in lucky. Oh, you'd like "pop-arazzi popcorn"-flavored fro-yo. Menchie's has got you covered. Seriously, check out this HUGE list of flavors they offer on a rotating basis: menchies.com/frozen-yogu… ! The toppings are more limited than Campus Candy, but do not leave The Wife or me wanting. In fact, all I need to do is throw some milk chocolate caramel turtles, mini m&m's, and carob chips onto my fro-yo, and my brain explodes, yo! Oh, and they offer free samples -- as many as you want as often as you want. Not sure if you want maple nut, rockin' salted caramel, or cinnamon bun? Try 'em all, and then mix 'em into the same bowl (or not). I highly recommend Menchie's, especially this location!
This froyo place has quickly became my favorite froyo in Madison/Middleton! They have so many flavors (and lots of them are tasty). The must try is mochi with froyo!
It was alright. I had the cherry tart mixture and another person I was with had the mint raspberry. The froyo tasted extremely artificial but the topping choices were fun. It was cool to throw in the 'swirl' option were you can put two flavors together at once. I could see how kids could really enjoy it. It was fun to experience but I probably won't go here a second time. I'd recommend adding more adult flavors that don't taste so artificial.

McDonald’s

Reviews:
This might be the best run McDonalds in the Madison area. The drive-through runs incredibly fast! Plus, it's a throw back McDonalds with a displayed old milkshake machine that triggered Ray Kroc's involvement in the company, and resulted in him bringing in a franchise model that facilitated the restaurant's world-wide domination. However, who checks for a McDonalds rating?
I can't believe I am writing a review for a McDonalds, but we recently drove through here the other day for a diet coke......as others have said, they are fast. It a 50's style retro McD's but the customer service is excellent, and the drive through was wicked fast.
It's a McDonalds. Bit of a 50's theme. Always use the bathroom and it's always clean. Decent service.

Blue Plate Catering

8401 Greenway Blvd
Middleton, 53562
Reviews:
We had Blue Plate cater our wedding rehearsal dinner, a picnic in Vilas Park. We thought we were going to do it ourselves but realized less than a week ahead of time that we were overwhelmed with other stuff to do and needed help. We called Blue Plate-stressed--and talked to David who clearly and calmly laid out the options for us. It turned out that they would be able to come and grill burgers and portabella mushrooms for not that much more than what we were already planning to spend on food and a grill rental. This included corn, potatoes and grilled asparagus as sides and he threw in an extra condiment and lemonade. The catering was flawless - they had two guys there who kept everything stocked throughout the night (we ran out of portabella mushrooms but should have known to order more). The food was great: pretty simple, but fresh and delicious. My wife liked the fact that they source a lot of their stuff from local places. It was totally successful. We ended up being able to spend our time with guests, who could eat good Wisconsin food. They also wrapped up leftovers for us to take and cleaned everything up. Highly, highly, recommended.
We had a wonderful wedding at Olbrich Gardens in May and Blue Plate was our caterer. David, the guy we worked with, was amazing. We booked them about a year before our wedding was to happen. David was extremely prompt with correspondence. He was very happy in every email exchanged which made me, as the anxious bride, feel very at ease whenever there were updates made. My husband and I initially chose a vegetarian-friendly buffet, but after chatting with my mom, we decided to add a meat entree...she actually wanted me to add three. BPC, the people we gave our money to, told us that while they'd be happy to do that, that three meat entrees, our vegetarian meet entrees, and our three (or maybe it was two..) side dishes was way too much for our less than 100 people and that one vegetarian and one meat entree was plenty. Fast forward to our day of and my husband and I were blown away by David and BPC. There was a 40-60% chance of rain that day. The day started off nice but humid. As the day progressed and 15 minutes before our ceremony was to start, David (and our day-of coordinator) come in a tell me that they're setting up the indoor venue AND outdoor venue with about 50 chairs each. They continue to tell me that if it does rain harder, they will move all the chair indoors and vice versa. 10 minutes before the start of the ceremony, David comes back in telling me that he's been in touch with his wife, who told him that there was now a 17% chance of rain and the ceremony is going to happen outdoors. On to the food. Amazing. It was delicious and I'm so glad my husband and I got a moment to ourselves to eat. We chose the fruit/cheese/cracker spread with a coffee bar and an alcohol bar along with our buffet dinner. In addition to an alcohol bar, we had BPC supply us with root beer floats as our Specialty drinks. Our wedding was kid-friendly and some of the adults don't drink so we wanted to be able to accommodate them and BPC was only too happy to accommodate us. All the guests seemed very happy with the food. BPC was wonderful. They went above and beyond with the food and with making sure we got the outdoor wedding we had been dreaming of since we booked with Olbrich Gardens. Thank so much for everything, BPC!!
Catering service review (my previous review was for their local cafes). I had to host a breakfast meeting for one of my project teams, and had approximately 25 people attending. The original plan involved me making breakfast for the team... but, due to a last minute change of venue, I realized I wouldn't have access to an appropriate cooking environment (stove/ovens/counter space/etc). In a panic, I contacted Blue Plate via their website. I filled-out a catering request, and within a few hours, they replied to say, "No problem - we can take care of this." + Great website + Excellent communication + Very prompt assistance They called to confirm the order and then e-mailed me a contract. I approved both, and the very next morning, they were onsite, exactly on-time, with an amazing breakfast spread. + Scrambled eggs: real, fluffy, not over-cooked, not watery, and very flavorful + Bacon: outstanding. Perfectly roasted. Not fatty. Delicious. + Skillet potatoes: cubed potatoes, perfectly fried and seasoned. + Silver-dollar pancakes: perfectly griddled + Assorted pastries: larger than bite-sized, but not so big as to overwhelm + Hot syrup and butter pats + Fresh fruit tray was delicious - everything was perfectly ripe + Coffee and beverages were excellent as well They supplied all of the flatware, disposable plates, napkins, cups, condiments, chaffing dishes, etc. They set-up and tore-down promptly and exactly as expected. + Superb staff - very helpful, friendly, and professional Things couldn't have been any easier or better. Truly top-notch in every respect.

Ordered two Friday night fish fries to go for $20.99 without tip. It comes with your choice of potato (potato salad or fries), two hush puppies, slaw, and three pieces of cube shaped cod. They are generous with their fries. The fish has the perfect amount of beer batter and is fork-flaky tender. Very good! The Staff is very attentive and friendly, even for just s take-out order. I saw they have a basket of chocolate chip cookies by the cash register that patrons helped themselves to! Very cool and quirky place :-)
This place is a must every time I visit Middleton to see family. Great no frills, classic Wisconsin bar atmosphere with plenty of wood paneling and no nonsense food. The burgers are fantastic, some good beers on tap. Time and again, I leave happy and full.
From the off-putting green bar front to the mediocre food served slowly in a 1962 paneled basement, this place screams its suckiness at full volume. Nothing is fresh, including the burgers, which are described as "the best." Not hardly, pre-formed tasteless meat pucks would be about right. Locals may love it because it's close and their taste buds are already damaged. I don't know why anyone would go here twice.

This is truly home cooking at its best. The staff is abundant and friendly. My breakfast today consisted of the Blueberry French Toast. The blueberries are actually in the bread dough! Served with warm syrup. Definitely worth getting up early and running those two miles. Open only until 1:00 pm so make your plans to get there!!
Very friendly staff with a fun local feel. Inside seating is cozy and nice alternative to a chain like Perkins. Adorably prices, but food just being average.
My girlfriend and I checked out this place on Labor Day right after the Mustard Museum. It was closing at noon and the nice waitress let us eat quickly. I had the steak and eggs with toast. My girlfriend had the peach n' French toast plus the eggs benedict vegetarian style. Well, we took home the French toast after eating half of it. However, everything else was heavenly and the bread was amazing in my mind. We were the last to leave but glad to have stopped here instead of McDonalds or another chain restaurant.
