Throughout the month of October, we'll be serving up fun and fascinating content about all things food. The signature dish, however, is our 2019 Best of Dining poll, with winners getting dished out all month long. Get hungry, Milwaukee!
For the second year in a row, you chose Kopp's Frozen Custard as your favorite long-lasting Milwaukee institution – and it wasn't even close.
Kopp's nearly tripled the number of votes Leon's Frozen Custard, the runner-up, received.Leon's, in fact, was founded by Leon Schneider, who helped Elsie Kopp get Kopp's up and running in 1950, but when it comes to this category, the student has defeated the master.
Kopp's is not only known for frozen custard but also delicious burgers. In fact, for another consecutive year, you ranked the burgers as the top in Milwaukee. Even with the new buns, the burgers are still the best in town. Pair that with some delicious custard, tasty fries and a great atmosphere, and you've got a Milwaukee classic.
