The Midwest's Best Burgers
Dotty Dumpling's Dowry, Madison, Wisconsin We can't decide which burger we like better at this bar near the UW campus: the Melting Pot ($7.79), topped with cheddar, Swiss, provolone, bacon and English garlic sauce; or the Basil Mozzarella ($7.29), made with fresh mozzarella cheese, pesto and homemade roasted red pepper mayo. Bump up the indulgence with cheese curds, panko-breaded onion rings or a Dreamsicle float. See Midwest Living's review. (608) 259-0000; dottydumplingsdowry.com
