Broadway Diner

On a whim last Sunday my family and I decided to eat at a diner.  I was researching online the night before and came across this place, the Broadway Diner in Baraboo, WI.
I love these old diner cars from the 30s-50s.  The Broadway was built in 1954.  The shiny chrome, the pre-fab design sensibilities and teal color, what's not to love! I'll take a diner over a fine dining restaurant any day of the week.

But don't let the nostalgia trip fool you, this place has great food.  I had the corned beef hash which was probably the best I've had anywhere.  The chunks of corned beef brisket were big and juicy along with well seasoned potatoes, caramelized onions completed by two perfect sunny-side-up eggs!

My wife had the Harvest Hash which consisted of grilled potatoes, onions, red bell peppers and spinach.  I had a couple of bites and it was great.

My son had a hamburger and my daughter had a grilled cheese sandwich.  They both enjoyed their food as well.

Average entree cost was between $8 - $10 and for kids it was between $4 - $6.  Service was friendly , attentive (I don't think I ever had an empty coffee cup) and quick, and the diner was clean. A great place over all and well worth the one hour drive from my house.  Baraboo, WI is a nice town to visit with plenty of things to see and do.  I plan a return visit soon!

** Update - I decided to give the first "Wisco Rating"
