Place to raise your cholesterol:

Solly’s Grille

A middle-aged man sidles up to the old-style diner countertop at Solly’s Grille, 4629 N. Port Washington Road, Glendale, during lunchtime on a Monday. No menu is necessary. “I’m here for my fix,” he tells the waitress. 

It’s hard not to be star struck by the first encounter with one of Solly’s sumptuous burgers - juicy, buttery and delicious, their pure sirloin goodness has been extolled by USA Today and the Food Network, among others. 

You can ignore the raves, though: The taste speaks for itself. If your taste buds can handle the bliss, don’t forget to add Solly’s homemade stewed onions. The secret to the perfect burger? “It’s the same burger you could have gotten when it first opened in 1936,” says Owner Glenn Fieber. “We use fresh sirloin every day, no fillers; and there’s the butter - not many people serve them with butter these days.”
