Bristol 45 Diner in Bristol, Wisconsin

This past weekend we were in the Kenosha area for a volleyball tournament. These tournaments run all day, so a post tournament meal is a very much welcome before hitting the road to come home. I discovered a diner in Bristol, WI that appeared to be fun and have a large menu. So, we popped in to Bristol 45 Diner on our way home. After all, they do craft shakes. Who can resist?

The diner's decor transported me back to my own childhood. Memorabilia, diner tables and more beckon you to have a seat and order an ice cream concoction. My daughter ordered an oreo milkshake and my husband ordered a chocolate malt. At a diner, you have to start dinner with a milkshake don't you?

The milkshakes were nice and thick - a great crafted treat for a busy day. The menu is quite large at Bristol 45 Diner and includes all of your traditional diner faves. Bristol 45 Diner is truly a home for comfort food! Breakfast is served all day long and remarkably we all opted for breakfast at 4 in the afternoon. My daughter and I ordered omelettes of the craft-you-own variety. We choose 4 add-ins each.

Omelette add-ins included a variety of veggies, breakfast meats and cheeses. I was really surprised to see feta as an option and jumped at the chance to have it incorporated in my omelette. The omelettes are ENORMOUS and come with a side of American fries or hash browns and toast or pancakes. My daughter and I both had some to take home.

  1. Wife and I go here whenever we travel to Wisconsin and in this area. We are usually there on Saturdays and until about two years ago, we started ordering the Stuffed Green Peppers. They only make these on Saturdays. You get two Stuffed Green Peppers with Mashed Potatoes. They are soooo good. Recently we tried the apple pie, which is made by a bakery in Kenosha we were told. During the summer, they have classic car shows however I can’t recall which day/night. Bristol 45 Diner is definitely a place to stop at even if it’s out of the way.
