The Challenge

Hello fellow Beloiters and visitors. I took a challenge to explore the food scene in Beloit with family or friends and have a new experience, and I invite you to do the same! The task at hand was to go to a restaurant that we had never been to before. Then, order something off the menu that we have never had before or something made in a different way.

Hanson’s Bar and Grill

My choice of restaurant was Hanson’s Bar and Grill. The restaurant was remodeled in the past 3 years and looks great. The inside is very comforting and nice. There is an area for family to eat and a bar if you wanted to get a drink (for those over 21). You simply walk in and find a seat.

My first impression was that the service was quick! I sat down and next thing I knew there was the server asking me if I wanted anything to drink or any appetizers. The service overall was great.

The BBQ Burger

What I ordered off the menu that was different was the BBQ Bacon Burger.

I know some of you are thinking that BBQ = amazing and burgers = amazing, but taking the two and putting them together = awesome. The BBQ burger at Hanson’s has Swiss, cheddar, bacon, and BBQ sauce. It also comes with your choice of fries, the soup of the day, or chili.

Meals to fill you up….
with enough to bring home

I went to Hanson’s with my mom and her friend Dori. I had the BBQ burger, my mother had the Mushroom and Swiss Burger, and Dori had the Brisket. We all could not finish our meals, but in a good way. Each burger was a half pound and came with sides. In the end we ended up taking home leftovers which with food like that is never a bad thing.

Inviting new and delicious experiences

Overall 10 out of 10 for my experience at Hanson’s Bar & Grill. I hope that people who live in Beloit or the people visiting take on this challenge and try something new from the menu or even something a little different. Like I always say, it never hurt to try something new. It just adds to what you have had in life.




I have lived in Beloit all of my life and enjoy every day that I spend in Beloit. Thrughout my progression in the field of Hospitality at Beloit Memorial High School, I have found that there are so many great things that you can do in this industry, such as owning a business or managing a restaurant. I’m looking forward to this opportunity.
