As part of the renovations of Lambeau field that began in 1997, an atrium was added to make the stadium more of a destination spot. Included among the plans for a retail store and the Packer's Hall of Fame was a restaurant named Curly's, after Curly Lambeau, the founder of the Packers.
Probably the most eaten at restaurant in town, Curly's is your typical pub, with several items that stand out from other sports bars that surround this temple of football.
One of these standouts is the Beer cheese and bacon burger on pretzel bun. The bun is chewy but soft with the great flavor and texture of a well made soft pretzel. The creamy sharp flavor of the beer cheese combines with the bacon and beef to create an amazing burger.
Waffle fries were seasoned well, without being sponges for grease.
All together Curly's is a unique experience. At any given time you may encounter players and front office personnel dining here with friends and family, or a raucous crowd cheering on the Brewers or Packers.
Curly's and the entire atrium are a must see slice of Fat Boy Heaven.
