So, if you love cheese and dairy, you’ll also love the food here. Not to be cheesy, but it’s truly some of the world’s best and you can enjoy incredible beer cheese soup, cheese plates, cheese curds, and other such delights. The Badger State also loves its butter burgers, bratwurst, fish fries, hot ham and rolls, Cornish pasty, cream puffs, and frozen custard.
