For the fourth year in a row, when it comes to Milwaukee's best margaritas, BelAir Cantina left the rest of the competition feeling salty, easily claiming the most votes from OnMilwaukee readers in our Best of Bars poll.
With almost a dozen types of margs on the menu – including the signature BelAir margarita, featuring El Jimado Blanco, fresh lime, Triple Sec and simple syrup – it's easy to see why this popular Milwaukee restaurant brand came away as king of the salt-rimmed thirst-quenchers. And why BelAir (already a winner this Bar Month for best bar in a restaurant) keeps growing, expanding from its original Water Street, Bucks arena-esque spot to six total locations – including Wauwatosa, Brookfield, Oak Creek, Downer and Madison.
Cafe Corazon earned the silver medal in the vote for the second straight yet – but it's the gold medalist in the OnMilwaukee editors' hearts, earning their pick for the category this year. Meanwhile, Conejito's Place, Botanas and La Fuente – which still lives on at its Bluemound Road location – rounded out the rest of the top five.
OnMilwaukee editors' pick: Cafe Corazon
