Milwaukee: The Wicked Hop

What I love about Sundays: Unlimited free toppings on the “build your own burger” at The Wicked Hop.  Also notable: The lovely view of my favorite area of Milwaukee, the Third Ward, from The Wicked Hop’s patio. Enjoy a delicious meal along with the sights and sounds of one of the most trendy parts of town. It’s a great place to bring out-of-town guests because there is something on the menu to please everyone. Weekend brunch or Sunday night burgers, The Wicked Hop will not disappoint!

I would suggest taking their appetizer menu very seriously. I was super conflicted about what to order as a starter, but ended up deciding on the Philly cheesesteak egg rolls. Grilled and marinated ribeye steak, sauteed onions, grilled peppers, cheddar cheese sauce, and provolone inside three crispy wontons. Served with their DELICIOUS City of Brotherly Love dipping sauce. Don’t overlook the sauce, people.

Now back to the topic of unlimited free toppings! That’s right folks, on Sundays (and actually Mondays too), you can add any of the regularly priced toppings for f-r-e-e. On any other day, these toppings will cost you either 50 cents or $1.50 each. And the list is extensive. There’s no doubt you will want to add at least three! Why not show up on a day that they’re free? Personally, I added Boursin cheese, mushrooms, sautéed onions, bacon, and avocado to my 1/2 lb of USDA prime beef. The burger itself is fire-grilled and rested upon a freshly toasted roll. It regularly comes with lettuce, tomato, and red onion. So I felt pretty accomplished after adding my 5 toppings! I call this masterpiece…The Olivia!

And no meal is complete without a bottle of rich, creamy, and Wisconsin-brewed Sprecher rootbeer. If you’ve never tried it, you’re missing out. (Side note: It makes an excellent rootbeer float!)

From The Wicked Hop, you are literally a hop, skip, and a jump away from the Milwaukee Public Market, Red Elephant Chocolate, and tons of little shops and fun places to visit in the Third Ward. It’s my favorite place to be in the summer, those unlimited free toppings on Sundays are only part of the reason!
