Olympian and Plover native Joe Pavelski has already been honored with medals, trophies, and framed uniforms, but now he is being honored with something much more delicious.
The Final Score sports bar in Stevens Point is honoring this hometown hero with a cheeseburger that they call "The Big Pavelski."
It features sauteed mushrooms, onions, and is topped with a special hollandaise sauce.
The bar's owner says that the burger was already on the menu, but used to be called "The Badger." Now that it has been re-named, the pub has seen sales go up. Its something that makes him very happy.
"Its more fun than anything else. All of the added attention is great but more importantly it is good to honor him. The Olympics are so much different than anything else." says Owner Jay Billings.
Joe Pavelski's family has visited The Final Score to sample the burger. The restaurant says it has been so successful that they plan to keep it on the menu.
