Fond Du Lac must eats?? or possible Milwaukee on Friday

Hi all, Thanks in advance for any advice you can give. I'm looking for everything from meals to snacks. I have 2 lunches and 2 dinners left. I'm stuck in the office on Pioneer until about 5:30 each day but am willing to drive up to an hour away if it's really interesting for dinner.

My other option is to check out of hotel in Fond Du Lac on Friday morning and stay in Milwaukee Friday night for dinner or lunch on Satruday. Flight leaves around 2ish on Sat from Milwaukee. Thank all!!

I've eaten at:
Ciulver's (multiple times)
Friar Tuck's
Fuji Yummy
Gino's Italian

I've eaten:
Old Dutech Ripples - cheddar & sour cream

Gino's Italian Restaurant
584 W Johnson St, Fond Du Lac, WI 54935

  1. Not sure what your likes/dislikes are but here's what I'd do: go to Milwaukee, check into the Iron Horse hotel (very cool boutique hotel with great bar area, plus the rooms are awesome) have a cocktail at the bar. For dinner you could try La Merenda for international tapas, or just eat at Smyth which is in the hotel. Milwaukee Street has great dining choices, most offer a cool, somewhat clubby atmosphere, all have great food. Carnevor has great steak, Zarletti for Italian, Umam Moto for Asian. All are a short cab ride away. Be sure to ask around at the hotel for other suggestions, people are friendly and want to help. The dining choices are endless.
    Saturday morning get up, go to Usinger's on 3rd St., take home some of their product for an Old World Milwaukee food souvenir. Right across from the hotel is Conejito's, a hole in the wall, maybe even a dump, that has very good Mexican, all under $5 and served on paper plates. Great way to start the day.
    I know that's a lot, but I hope it helps! All of the places above have a nice bar to sit at if your dining alone and will provide great conversation. Be sure to ask others for recommendations as well!

        Thanks folks. Ended cutting trip short and went to a gyro place right outside the airport. It was great. The dolemedas were nicely wrapped.
