Season's eatings! The weather may be getting colder, but Dining Month on OnMilwaukee is just cooking up, dishing out your winning picks in this year's Best of Dining poll. Dining Month is brought to you by Fein Brothers, your premier food service equipment and supply dealer in Wisconsin since 1929. Congratulations to all of the winners, and happy eating for all those who voted!

The Vanguard

It was a close call between Oakland Gyros, last year's winner, and The Vanguard, but the Bay View sausage hot spot came through with the win – by a staggering two votes this year. In case there was any doubt: Every. Vote. Matters. 

A fun bar with craft cocktails as well as beer, The Vanguard also serves up delicious sausages and sides to satisfy those late night cravings. Its unique sausages – rotated in and out of the menu every few months or so – include combos like their sweet paprika sausage with pineapple, basil, barbecue sauce, cheddar smear and jalapeños.

In a case of the drunk munchies, their mashed potato crisps might save your life. They come crisp fried and loaded with Cheez Whiz, sour cream, bacon bits and chives – ow ow!

The Vanguard is on Kinnickinnic Avenue and open until 2 a.m.
