This place is crazy-delicious and so fairly priced. A burger is $4 and my friend incorrectly assumed that it would be too small to fill her up so she ordered the double. That was crazy. We love food and she could barely finish her sandwich....More

Upon visiting a friend in Milwaukee, they had to take me to Nite Owl on the way to the airport which is right across the street. Apparently they close their doors when they run out of food for the day. We happened to hit them...More

This place would be amazing if they could organize a bit better. While the food was good, it's terrible crowded inside and the way it's set up you order, and then pay after you get your food. So if you eat, then you have to...More

We ate here with my mom who was a car hop here in the early 60's when it was called Al's, and she loved it! Except for the addition of indoor seating not much has changed. The burgers are huge (I can't imagine ordering a...More

I saw this as a "where the locals go" and thought we'd give it a try. AMAZING burgers!! The chocolate shake was awesome too. The atmosphere was cozy and perfect for a family lunch. Highly recommend to anyone in the area! **they are cash only**

I had never heard of this place before but was invited to check it out. Nite Owl is a fantastic little burger joint. Food was fresh and HOT when it came out. I will definitely be back!

We knew Nite Owl closes when they run out of hamburger but were certain we would be fine when arriving at 5PM on a Saturday night. It was already closed! We weren't the only folks who were disappointed...there were a number of cars going through...More
