We're pretty sure that one requirement for a dive bar is an amazing history, and Plaza has one. Supposedly, it opened in true Wisconsin style: during Prohibition. Bowling lanes were added at some point, and over the years it’s been visited by the likes of Johnny Cash and Bill Murray. Sometime in the '60s, Plaza Sauce was invented, and it still continues to sell tons of Plaza Burgers topped with said secret sauce.
