Located on the Wisconsin Dells Parkway close to the Grand Marquis Waterpark Hotel & Suites, the Cheese Factory gets its name, not because cheese is made there, but because its building used to be a real Wisconsin cheese factory.

Uno – Chicago Grill
Uno’s is a classic, Italian-Style pizza establishment that has its roots in the Chicago melting pot that gave birth to many new forms of music, art and food.
