Oscar's Pub & Grill (1712 W. Pierce St.) is located in a neighborhood known for its Mexican and Southeast Asian restaurants. So the fact that its specialty is all-American hamburgers is a bit of a novelty in and of itself. Oscar's casual setting has recently been renovated, but it retains a vintage ornamental tin ceiling. Expect to find low prices—the basic burger, 8 ounces of Angus beef, includes mighty fine homemade fries for just $5. Others have “big” names and slightly higher prices ($6.50-$6.75), including the Big Hongo, Big Aloha, Big Foot and Big Gringo. The specialty is the Big O ($7.25), which adds chipotle jack cheese, smoked Gouda, bacon, chorizo and a few slices of jalapeño, as well as a small side of guacamole. Other items include bar appetizers, a Cuban sandwich, a veggie burger and a Caesar salad. Not far from Downtown, Oscar's is a good spot for a quick lunch.

Poll

The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
