I've been going to the Plaza weekly for over 30 years with a group of musician friends after rehearsing in a nearby space. The beer flows, the PLAZABURGER'S are great (be sure to ask for extra "secret" sauce ON THE SIDE), and the kids tolerate us old fogies pretty well. Watch out for pool-cues if you're near the table, though. The staff have always been great to our group, and some have learned when we're coming, so they have a special table set up for us--sometimes with pitchers already on the table! Of course they have a wide beer selection and other food too. Going there keeps me young.

You have got to have the Plaza Burger and make sure to order extra sauce! This is the perfect burger! This is a no frills, cash only bar. I have never had a bad burger here! You will come back again and wonder why you waited so long !

OMG. Cheese Plaza. Best burger I've had in a long time. Belly up to the bar and talk to the bartender while you're waiting for your burger. They make it right there in front of you. A must stop on your Madison agenda!

This is nothing but a basic Wisconsin tavern, and there's not a thing wrong with that! If you know an love that kind of atmosphere, trust me you're gonna love this place. I've lost count of the times I've walked through that screen door, sat at the bar and ordered a Plaza cheeseburger and fries with a side of Plaza sauce (for dipping the fries).

The beers run the full gamut of of everything from the "big" breweries to imports to microbrews, so there's something for everyone.

One thing, if you come to watch sports, pick your seat carefully. Some of the booths don't have the best views of the TVs, which are a little sparse away from the bar. Oh, and bring cash, cuz they don't accept plastic.
