The 4th of July just passed but there's no reason you can't celebrate your freedom with a little road trip.

I mean, what's more American than hopping in your car or truck and driving an hour or so north of Rockford for a meal at a place that is called one of the "best road trip food stops" in the US?

Insider put together a list of the best road trip food stops in America and said The Old Fashioned in Madison is the best in Wisconsin.

Without question the best cheese curds in Wisconsin! Went here at the tail end of a road trip through Wisconsin and loved the food, vibe, and service. Definitely a must if you're in the area. Good prices and the burgers are great too! The place was packed but there was a reason for that.

The Old Fashioned is also an Instagram foodie's dream come true.

Whether it's the curds, the double brat, cod sandwich, or burger, Instagram is littered with positive comments about The Old Fashioned.

The Old Fashioned is located at 23 N Pinckney Street in Madison and they're open daily except for Sunday.
