Restaurant namesakes Aaron Rodgers and Ryan Bryan can add another notch to their win columns – as can SURG Restaurant Group, the entity that operates 8-Twelve MVP Bar and Grill – since 8-Twelve MVP Bar and Grill, 17800 W. Bluemound Rd., has been named the best athlete-owned restaurant in America by The Daily Meal.  

The Daily Meal evaluates the best athlete-owned restaurants in America, looking at restaurants owned or invested in by a number of professional athlete types. 

8-Twelve topped Joe Theismann's, Billy Sims Barbecue, Vince Young Steakhouse and many others.
