Two Wisconsin burgers make new "21 Juicy Burgers" list

Buzzfeed is out with another one of its lists that features a Milwaukee location.  Also included in Mackenzie Kruvant's new "21 Juicy Burgers That Will Ruin You For All Other Burger" is the Kenosha iconic stop, The Spot.

Yep, Oscar's and the The Spot are officially two of the "21 Juicy Burgers That Will Ruin You For All Other Burgers."  I'll agree with both.  Oscar's is great, and as a son of a Kenosha mom I've long been a fan of The Spot.  Not only of its burgers but also its delicious root beer whirls.

Here's what Buzzfeed said about The Spot: 

20. Cheeseburger at The Spot Drive-In in Kenosha, Wisconsin.  Spot Drive-In is a no-frills burger spot. You won’t find any fancy topping options, just a good old-fashioned burger. If simple is your style, head to 2117 75th St., Kenosha.

And, here's its Oscar's blurb:

21. Big O at Oscar’s Pub & Grill in Milwaukee. Bring your big appetite to Oscar’s for a Big O, an 8-ounce Black Angus burger with chipotle Jack, Gouda, bacon, chorizo, fried onions, and jalapeños. Let it fill your belly and dreams at 1712 W Pierce St.

The MSOE who?
The MSOE who?

The Alverno who? Stritch what?

We all seem to know the nicknames of the major colleges and universities in greater Milwaukee,.  Marquette's the Golden Eagles. Although, even after 20 years, the students still chant "Here we go Warriors, here we go." UWM? The Panthers. The Badgers, of course, grace the uniforms and halls at UW.  

But what about the other colleges and universities in the area?  The topic of sports nicknames came up recently during my Bucks ticket draft.  No one could name Carroll College's mascot.
