Backed by 100 years of deli experience, Hansen’s Dairy and Deli keeps loyal regulars nibbling year-round. Like a Norman Rockwell painting with a side of ketchup, the bill of fare is an edible piece of Americana, regaling taste buds with creamy milk shakes, crispy thin-crust pizzas, and savory fried-chicken dinners. The deli’s crew also crafts more than 20 different hot and cold sandwiches, stacking bread with everything from turkey and bacon to philly steak and perch.

In Tropical Mexican Cuisine’s kitchen, the crew wraps meats and beans in large tortillas to create traditional dishes such as chimichangas and enchiladas, but it’s the house specialties that stand out on the menu. For these, they stir together orange vinaigrette or chile ancho to smother grilled steaks, and carefully craft red and green moles to pair with chicken. People with special diets, such as vegetarians and kids who only eat food smaller than their heads, can order from their own menu.
Soon after John Issac immigrated to the United States from Lithuania, he opened a small restaurant whose simple, one-word sign conveyed all patrons needed to know—there was chili. As John's recipe caught on, he earned the moniker Chili John, and today—nearly a century since John first dipped his ladle into the American melting pot—chefs still cook up his time-honored blend of beans, spaghetti, and four varying levels of spiciness. At the Green Bay restaurant that bears his name, John's legacy tops everything from hot dogs to burritos, complementing a full menu of Tex-Mex and homestyle favorites that includes Cajun-steak subs and quarter-pound cookies.
