K. LaMay's Steamed Cheeseburgers charms taste buds with trademark patties, which have garnered a Best Burger ranking from the Record-Journal in 2009, 2010, and 2011 in addition to hearty press coverage. Slices of sharp cheddar cheese migrate from Wisconsin to roost atop beef slabs fresh from the steamers, creating single ($4.50) or double ($6.50) steamed cheeseburgers engineered by vapor king Kevin LaMay and his jovial staff. Diners can veer jaws and dexterous elbows away from the joint's namesake to nosh on a steak sandwich ($4.99) or a dozen chicken nuggets ($3) and repose their meaty treats on crispy beds of fries or onion rings ($2.50). Patrons can prompt bubbly abdominal sensations with sips of locally made Foxon Park sodas ($1.50), which perch in a cooler alongside hunks of the signature cheese available for purchase.
