On a recent Packers Sunday, a group of us checked out the relatively new Badger Burger Co. location in Brookfield, Wisconsin.

Although it has a rather strange location–a small strip mall in the parking lot of another strip mall–for a sports bar/fast-casual restaurant, it turned out to be a “hidden gem” as one of my dining companions dubbed it.

The restaurant has plenty of TVs and bar, booth and table seating with an upstairs and a private party room available, too. Of course they specialize in burgers (hence, the name),  but the menu boasts a wide array of offerings like chicken sandwiches, wraps, salads, specialty mac and cheeses and chicken wings. Plus, there are happy hour specials from 2-5pm each weekday as well as daily food and drink specials 7 days/week.

Fortunately for us, Sunday’s special (in addition to a large pizza deal) was $3 off Bloody Marys. Badger Burger Co. has four specialty Bloodies on the menu. Their house, which is chock-full of fixin’s; a Bacon Lover’s, which is the house plus bacon x3; a Shrimp Lover’s, which is the house plus shrimp x3; and the Badger, which adds two sliders!

Everyone in our crew ordered the house, save for one lone Bacon Lover. Here are the details.

Spice & Mix: They told us they have created their own and there is a large carafe of it behind the bar. It had a good, but familiar taste.

Fixin’s: Celery, pickle, 2 olives, shrimp, cheese and beef, bacon strip

Chaser: Your choice from the tap offerings

Price: $10 regularly, $7 on Sundays  

The consensus is that the Bloodies were all very tasty. Loved the amount of fixin’s. We thought the price was a little on the high side at $10, but at $7, they were a bargain. We also saw someone else order the Badger, which retails for $13.50 and determined that you’d really get your bang for your buck if you ordered that on a Sunday… for $10.50, you’d have your drink and enough of a small snack to fill you up.

PLUS, the restaurant also offers $5 Bloody Mary refills with normal garnishes (see above photo), which is also a sweet deal.

The food was delicious and very filling. Three of us had to get to-go boxes! That’s why I think the Badger Bloody would be a good bet next time… just enough of a snack to qualify as an app or mini meal in addition to your beverage.

Badger Burger Co. also has an app where you can earn free Bloodies and Burgers (buy 9, get one free) and get access to other specials.

Oh and did I mention they do touchdown shots? Thanks to the Packers, we also got two shots while dining there for the first half of the game.

Definitely recommend you check out this new sports bar in the area. You’ll be pleasantly surprised. They also have locations in Mukwonago, Richfield and Oconomowoc.
