BD's is underrated. I usually don't care for chains, but this place has good food and a great atmosphere.

You can't be serious to have the Organ Piper and Stone Fire Pizza in the top 3. I would imagine you would like to retain your image of providing reliable Milwaukee area information to consumers that really are looking for quality and less obnoxious places to conduct their business. (Editor's note: We appreciate the feedback, but you do realize that this is a reader's poll? The information is totally reliable. The rankings came from our readers).
