Solly’s Grille – butter burgers – Milwaukee

Sweet Willie | Aug 8, 2003 01:48 PM

Had read about Solly’s butter burgers and was up in Milwaukee yesterday.
Took my nephew, a Marquette student, to Solly’s, he is pretty happy because anytime Uncle Bill comes in town, he is going to eat.

The new Solly’s (the old one was moved a block or so due to a Medical complex going up) is located at 4629 N. Port Washington Road. As one walks inside you see two U shaped counters (the same ones as in the old Sollys?).

We sat down and both ordered the regular butter burger, fries and a raspberry lemonade.

Fries came a few minutes before the burgers which was fine w/us as we were starving. They were good crinkle cut fries.

Now the burger comes, I had ordered mine w/sautéed onions. Before I state my opinion, I need to state that our house is a dairy free house, I will still bring in my cheese now and then but that is it, I do all the cooking and just have never used much dairy in my cooking so it was easy to give up.

First, I can barely pick up the burger because of the soppy butter filled lower bun, immediately make mental note to order raw onions next time. I take a bite, my mouth is filled w/warm butter and beef taste, Almost a patty melt texture/taste. A good burger, unique.

Next time I go back I will order the raw onions, there was no need for the sautéed onions (think MORE butter) IMO.
