Season's eatings! October may be over, but Dining Month on OnMilwaukee, presented by the restaurants of Potawatomi Hotel & Casino, is still cooking, dishing out your winning picks in this year's Best of Dining poll. Congratulations to all of the winners, and happy eating for all those who voted!
When it comes to Milwaukee food institutions, according to our Best of Dining poll voters, Kopp's is king. The local burger and frozen custard icon – with its three locations in Brookfield, Greenfield and Glendale – dominated the Milwaukee institution category with only fellow frozen custard connoisseur Leon's giving it a run for the money.
While the foodie picks iced it out, Kopp's was easily the fan favorite, thanks to its big satisfying burgers and, of course, its custard – in classic vanilla, chocolate and the rotating flavors of the day. Generations of Milwaukeeans have been raised on craving Kopp's custard, and judging by its performance here against its fellow Milwaukee food landmarks, we can't see that trend stopping anytime soon.
