Milwaukee -ish / Green Bay -ish Area Take Out Food For Road Trips

gordeaux | May 20, 201207:35 AM     6

Howdy. Here's what I seek:
I drive from Chicago to the Upper Penninsula several times a year (and back.) Maybe 10-15 trips each year. I'm looking for good road eats on 43N, then I take the Greeen Bay route 141/41. We normally stopped at various garbage fast food joints for road food until we found Bates City BBQ just outside Green Bay (Lineville,) but then they moved. I was ecstatic when I found that place, and it was destined to be "our place" for a long time, but they moved off of our route, and I'm back at square one. Last trip, I stopped at Ashley's bbq in Milwaukee around Center and 15th? It was decent, tho it lacked a good smoke punch, and the sauce was food service garbage. I'd stop there again if I can't find anything better. I have no real problem bringin my own sauce for the occaision.

So, what I need is VERY quick on/off xpwy 94, 43, 41/141.
I'll be doing take out only.
Easy to eat while driving.
GOOD.
I'm not seeking bbq specifically at ALL. Just mentioned those two places as examples. Both were easy off/on, offer take out, and easy driving food. I eat EVERYTHING, and I mean everything. Indian, Thai, super spicy, Sushi, I seriously eat EVERYTHING.

I have yet to try Kopps, I think there is one very close to 43. I like the idea of finding something more interesting than good burgers tho.
