There are a variety of food options for attendees at this year’s Expo.

Across the grounds there are plenty of food choices for those attending this year’s World Dairy Expo. From the renowned grilled cheese sandwiches to an outdoor food court, attendees are sure to find something to satisfy their hunger during the week. Here are two of my personal favorites, as well as a newly added restaurant

1. GEA Ice Cream Parlor

Located at the end of the Exhibition Hall, the booth features three flavors of ice cream that rotate daily. It is definitely worth the longer walk from the showring to get a scoop of this sweet treat.

2. Badger Dairy Club Grilled Cheese Stand

The Badger Dairy Club works nonstop throughout the day to keep up with the high demand of their famous grilled cheese sandwiches. Be sure to allow extra time in your snack break, as the line is often long to get a grilled cheese and chocolate shake. This stand is a favorite of many who attend Expo!

3. The Tanbark

Newly added this year in the front part of the Estrumate Sale Pavilion, this restaurant serves pub-style food. The restaurant opens at 11 a.m. daily and is located on the walk down to the showring.

Where is your favorite place to eat at Expo? Be sure to check out these stands and restaurants before the week is over. Watching the dairy cattle shows and walking around the tradeshow can certainly work up an appetite. With the great variety of food choices at Expo, you are sure to find something to eat without having to leave the grounds.
