love the way the waxed paper sticks to the table! 8/21/2007

I used to live in MKE and couldn't wait for the opening of the Nite Owl. My sister and I would go down to Bay View and gorge ourself on those big greasy burgers! We'd usually share an order of fries, cuz you had to have a malt! YUMMY of the things I miss about Milwaukee Pros: not many people except south siders know abou it Cons: not open year round more

A part of every family! 1/3/2007

Nite Owl is by far one of the best kept secrets! I've been going there for almost 20 years since I was a young child and I'd always get their adorable clown sundae and watch the airplanes take off across the street at the airport. The food is amazing, their creations are unique, and this is certainly a place every family should go. Nite Owl is a part of so many childhoods both young and old because it's become a part of everyones family! Pros: Great burgers, awesome ice cream creations, cozy retro atmosphere Cons: Not open year round, sometimes close early more

No Wimpy Burgers BABY!!!! 9/5/2002

There is no doubt about it. From the service to the taste and quality of the burgers Night Owl is hands down the best burger shop in Milwaukee. I would challenge anyone to show me a better burger shop in the coulntry. I don't think you can because the Night Owl burger is 5 inches across, 1 full inch high of that great tasting greasy yummyness. You can even read about it in the many articals listed in the store. There are no wimpy burgers here!!!!! Pros: Fantastic food, Great dessert Cons: lil more expensive more

nostalgia 8/27/2002

It was a long time ago. I was four years old and the old man who lived two doors down had reached into his pocket and brightened my day buy handing me a tarnished old nickle. I promptly ran down the block to Nite Owl where I new a nickle could buy me a vanilla icecream cone. Reaching up I slid my new found wealth onto the to-go counter (still there)and asked the owner, who still owns the place to this day, ""One vanilla cone please."" ""They're 15,25, &35 cents now son."" I tried to reach for my coin back,but he handed me a cone anyway. Pros: great burgers, excellent icecream, perfect onionrings Cons: smokers, limited seating more

The food is excellent. You get large portions. Really worth the money. The only draw back is the place is not always open. Pros: value, accessible Cons: not open all the time more
