Clicking in to the AHT inbox recently, we've got this bit of juicy intel. Eat up!


Dear AHT, Letters From Our ReadersThe photo attached is the signature of Mark Murphy, the current CEO/President of the Green Bay Packers. It says "To Kroll's, the best burger in Wisconsin. Go Pack Go!"

I'm best friends with his daughter Katie, and we recently made the trip out to Green Bay for the Packers v. Colts game. We went to Kroll's West, which is one of those family-owned restaurants that "hasn't changed a bit." They still serve a "butter burger"—they basically cook their burger in butter and then top if off with ketchup, pickles, onions and MORE butter. It's pretty tasty, makes you feel slightly sick after eating it (especially when combined with their famous fried cheese curds)—but it's one of those things that you need to try when you're out in Wisconsin for a Packer's weekend.

Butter burgers are a regional specialty of Wisconsin. To see a butter burger in the making, watch this video from Solly's Grille in Glendale.

Wisconsin is also known as a possible birth state of the hamburger, invented by Charlie Nagreen in the summer of 1885 at a fair in Seymour.
