What a great little find! We ordered breakfast at lunch. I had a skillet with hash browns, scrambled eggs, ham and cheese. It was A LOT of food and all of it very good. The wait staff was friendly, the coffee was tasty. A very, very good value for the money.
Very large portions. Good service. Everything came to the table very fast. The bathrooms were clean.
I was in Mondovi for the Buffalo County Fair and a friend's birthday weekend. We saw the White Pig Tavern advertised on a car at the derby and knew we needed to go here. Actually, my boyfriend knew people who knew people who worked here and we were told the Bloody Marys are a must, so that is why we went on a Sunday morning. The Bloody Marys did not disappoint. I had a Screwdriver made with plenty of vodka. Other things I noticed were cigarettes and candy for sale. Sweatshirts, too. Bring cash! I don't think they accept credit cards. Seating is limited. There are seats at the bar and several large tables. Otherwise, there is plenty of room to stand.
My wife is originally from the Buffalo Valley, so in the back and fourth between there, I've been to Buzz's twice. It's one of her grandma's favorite places to stop, and the food is a step up from the standard bar fair. The first time I stopped there I ordered a french dip with fries and an order of fried cheese curds for the girl. Her being bred to eat fried cheese (and still weigh less than half of what I do) meant she had no problems taking them down, I tried one, and it was certainly the best fried curd I'd had in my journeys to the midwest. The french dip was fairly standard, nothing was dry, and nothing disappointed. What really stood out was the second visit. My grandmother used to own a chicken delight franchise in Los Angeles about three ice ages ago, and I'd had the fortunate experience to have broasted chicken on a few occasions throughout my childhood long after she'd sold the franchise. If you don't know about broasted chicken, I've got a little knowledge for you: it takes less time to make than fried chicken, it's much much less fattening, it's juicier, and it's crispier. Basically it's fried chicken that's been banned from fried chicken competition for injecting itself with performance enhancing awesomeness. Buzz's nails their broasted chicken. Despite being a fish out of water whenever this tree hugging beach bum from Kommiefornia visits real life people, one bite and any transcontinental social rift quickly melted away along with the savory breading surrounding my chicken. I honestly couldn't tell you how good the fries or coleslaw were. I don't remember, and I don't really care. If you don't like the broasted chicken from this place, then I don't know how much I can really trust you. The staff was friendly, there was football on the tv, and the food came out hot and fresh. Since there's hardly anything in Mondovi, just go to Buzz's. It's worth it.
The fried cheese curds were excellent, but definitely eat them while hot! Otherwise you're just eating breaded stryofoam. I had the grilled chicken sandwich, which was nothing to write home about, but definitely better than a stop at Mickey Ds. As a sometimes-a-tarian, I was pleased with my lunch overall.
My daughter in laws and I shared a pizza, which was fantastic. My sons and husband had the hamburgers and thought they were great- fresh made patties and seasoned perfectly. The service was great and the price right. Of all the meals we had this weekend, this one was the best.
