For the fifth straight year, October is Dining Month on OnMilwaukee.com, presented by Concordia University. All month, we're stuffed with restaurant reviews, delectable features, chef profiles and unique articles on everything food, as well as the winners of our "Best of Dining 2011."
Everyone has a favorite burger.
This year, Sobelman's won the OnMilwaukee.com poll. But, favorites like Kopp's, AJ Bombers, Elsa's, Stack'd and Solly's all garnered lots of love.
But if you're looking for that rarely publicized burger or underrated slab of beef, where do you go? Do you have favorite bar that makes a great burger? Or a place that doesn't even have burgers on the menu yet the chef has made you one upon a special request.
One of these underrated burgers for me is found at Rupena's at the Milwaukee Public Market. For only $3.99, you get a fresh from the butcher burger with your choice of toppings. It's juicy, full of flavor and great for lunch or dinner.
So, there's my choice. Now, who's got your favorite underrated Milwaukee burger?
