Van Abels: Hollandtown, Wisconsin

(Her) There is no other place like Van Abels. Well, at least none that I know of.   They have been in the same location since 1848 and not many restaurants can say that. They operate sort of like a supper club.  You walk in and sit at the bar while you order and wait for a table to be prepared.  While you are at the bar make sure you ask them to mail a postcard for you–they will do this for free if you are using one of their postcards.  Continue reading

Dick’s Drive-In, Kaukauna, WI

(Her) This is not the first time we’ve been to Dick’s Drive-In, and that’s why it deserves a blog.  For most of you reading this, Dick’s is not readily accessible.  It’s not conveniently located off a major highway.

Hollander’s Pub & Grill in Little Chute, Wisconsin

(Him) We ended up here by accident but it was a good accident not like a 4th child at age 39 kind of accident. The place was spacious and the help was friendly.  I decided to go for a personal pizza and was not disappointed.  The crust was thin and crackerish. They used a quality mozzarella that had that good dark brown color that is essential for a good pie.  That adds style points for sure. They also were not shy on the amount of cheese on top. The sauce was a little light in amount and flavor but the overall taste was great. Continue reading

Foggy Memories: The Skyview Club in Kaukauna, WI

(Him) So I’ll go over some joints in Foggy Memories we’ve been to that will probably not see the likes of us again. I’ll try to give a honest review, but there’s a reason we won’t be going back so my memory may be a tad  jaded.
The first place we’ll discuss is The Skyview Club in Kaukauna, WI. We visited this place about 19 days ago or so.  I really had high hopes  for this place, as Cory was keen on it due to reviews she read.  Continue reading
