Eat at Motor®
Come for the Museum. Stay for the food. Like the Museum, MOTOR Bar & Restaurant serves up the best of American culture in an inspiring setting. In a hurry? Just come for the food. No Museum admission is required to dine at MOTOR.
King of the Road Food
MOTOR’s bold American classics celebrate the taste of life on the road. Road House Chili that tastes like it’s fresh from a Texas diner. BBQ Ribs redolent of a Little Rock smoke shack. And, fittingly, plenty of Wisconsin favorites: Fish Fry, Booyah Stew, and the best sausage and cheese in Milwaukee.
BURGER OF THE MONTH:
Garlic Parmesan Burger
An 8 oz hand packed hamburger patty loaded with fresh herbs and roasted garlic and topped with parmesan cheese, garlic aioli, fresh greens, tomatoes and onion. Served with French fries
and a pickle.
WING OF THE MONTH:
Zesty Orange Wings
One pound of jumbo wings tossed in a refreshing orange glaze with just a
hint of spice.
SPECIAL OF THE MONTH:
King Carolina BBQ Sandwich
Slow-smoked beef brisket, pork shoulder, and spicy hot link sausage together on a Miller Bakery onion bun and topped with house made Carolina BBQ sauce, MOTOR’s signature smoky BBQ sauce, and crispy fried onions. Served with French fries
and a pickle.
$13.95 for H.O.G. members
Ginger Beer Margarita
MOTOR’s Ginger Beer Margarita is a unique twist on a classic summer drink featuring the perfect mix of Cuervo® Silver tequila, ginger beer, and house crafted
SMaSH Ale by
A stripped-down, single malt and single hop ale that drops in the glass soft gold with a rocky white head, tossing up citrusy, woodsy, and herbal Willamette hop aromas. The Vienna malt gives SMaSH Ale a medium-light body that’s immediately sweet up front with slight caramel notes, and lingering biscuit flavor.
$5.00 for H.O.G. members
