Point Burger Bar Express soon will open in the former location of Upper 90 Sports Pub, 322 W. State St. This is the latest concept from restaurateur Brian Ward, who also owns Ward’s House Of Prime.

This will be the third location for Point Burger Bar – the other two are located at W229N1400 Westwood Dr. in Pewaukee and 10950 Good Hope Rd. The menu offers 16 gourmet burgers made to order in five minutes or less, along with salads, appetizers, entrees and more.

The bar and restaurant will offer dine-in and walk-up service.

Jake Dehne, former owner go Upper 90, will serve as the operating partner.

"Once Brian told me his Express concept for the Point Burger brand, I knew our Upper 90 Sports Pub location would be ideal based on the development of the new arena and business expansion in the Downtown area," says Dehne.

Point Burger Bar will feature a full bar with alcohol-infused shakes, as well as 20 TVs and shuttles to and from all major sporting and entertainment events in the Downtown area.

She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that.

When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
