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:
The Fat Elvis
Our hand packed 8oz. beef patty topped with the King’s favorites. Bananas, peanut butter and crispy bacon piled high on grilled white bread. Served with French fries. 14.95
WING OF THE MONTH:
One pound of our jumbo wings wrapped in bacon and then fried until crispy. Topped with a peanut butter-banana sauce. 12.95
SPECIAL OF THE MONTH:
Wouda’, Coulda’, Shoulda’
We are pretty confident that Elvis would have loved this sandwich as well. We took our classic grilled cheese with provolone and mozzarella cheeses and cheese curds and stuffed it our creamy mac & cheese and Applewood smoked crispy bacon. Served with French fries. 10.95
Korbel brandy, Dr. McGillicuddy’s Vanilla and Frangelico poured over vanilla ice cream. Topped with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
Door County Brewing Co Silurian Stout
Dive into the delicious depths of Door County Brewing Company’s Silurian Stout — with chocolate and dark malts, lactose sugar and a hint of coffee. Ruling land and sea, this legendary creamy milk stout is unlike anything of our time.
