Fan Favorites: Best Soup and Chili in Wisconsin

Nothing warms the body and soul like a hot bowl of chili or a hearty cup of soup midwinter. And our Facebook fans couldn’t agree more. When we asked them which restaurant serves the best bowl, answers spanned the state.

According to them, you’ve gotta try:

Chili and French Onion Soup at Ole & Lena Kaffe Hus in Westby — Marie C.
This may be a coffee shop that serves up cappuccinos and pastries, but restaurant goers love the soup just as much. Friendly people, reasonable prices and a fun atmosphere keep them coming back.

Soup Bros. in Milwaukee — Lisa C.
Turkey Pot Pie, Bermuda Cheddar, Red Pepper Bisque. Owner Richard Regner has been serving unique and delicious soup by the bowlful for 13 years. The soup menu changes seasonally, but you’ll get your choice of six vegetarian and meat soups every day.

Potato Soup at The Grumpy Troll in Mount Horeb — Jan P.
This micro-brewery was once a historic creamery. In addition to handcrafted beers, you’ll find gourmet pizzas, fish fries, and yes, soups aplenty. Don’t forget to grab a side of corn bread!

Chicken Dumpling Soup at Farmer’s Home Restaurant in Antigo — Michelle B.
Farmer’s Home is where the locals come to eat. In addition to homemade soup, courtesy of secret family recipes, customers rave about their old-fashioned drinks and fish fry.

6-Shooter Chili from Badger Brew Express in Rice Lake — Cody S.
Every chili has a secret ingredient or two. With “shooter” in the name, you may think this one has oysters. Not so. This chili gets its name from six shots of espresso!
