For the fourth straight year, you've given your vote to BelAir Cantina as your favorite restaurant – not only to eat – but also to belly up to the bar.
We know folks flock to BelAir's multiple locations to devour their street tacos – especially on Taco Tuesday – but, based on your votes, you also see it as a great spot to stick around to enjoy the plentiful margaritas, tasty beers and more libations at the bar. And with plenty of locations throughout the city, it's a convenient option for quenching your taco-induced thirst.
Spots like the classic Swingin' Door Exchange, Milwaukee Ale House, The Vanguard and Elsa's round out the remaining top five. But Goodkind – which didn't make it onto the top five readers' picks this year – is still No. 1 in OnMilwaukee editors' hearts.
In addition to a menu of delightfully creative dishes, Goodkind's bar is a must-try. Not only do they have great beer and wine selections, they also top the charts when it comes to fantastic, inventive cocktails. The drinks feature exceptional spirits and a variety of housemade components, including elixers and syrups. They're also graced with poetic monikers – like Senhora do Fogo, Light As A Father and My Darling Amadeus – that roll off the tongue almost as smoothly as their drinks roll down your throat.
