“Nice little restaurant/micro-brewery that offers American-fusion cuisine. We recommend the Thai pork belly tacos and the Korean BBQ Shrimp tacos. You can also get an American burger if that is your preference. If you like to try different brews, they allow sampling so you can make sure you get something you like, as well as the local staple, Spotted Cow from New Glarus Brewing. Pub Hours: Monday - Wednesday: 11AM - 12AM Thursday - Saturday: 11AM - 2:00AM Sunday: 11AM - 10PM”

“Mediterranean. F-bomb chicken salad is so good and I think it's even healthy! Banzo is a great option for delivery where you still feel like you have healthy options. At least that's what I tell myself again and again.”
