The votes are in, and the winners have been selected for OnMilwaukee's Best Dining 2010. The results of this readers' poll, including an editors' pick, are available in this series of articles that run all October long during Dining Month on OnMilwaukee.com.
Last year it was Saz's over Speed Queen by 13 votes. This year the margin of victory was doubled but the crown went to Speed Queen for the best ribs in Milwaukee.
Speed Queen is a more than half-century-old Milwaukee landmark, focusing on carry-out barbecue with affordable prices and a drive-through window that makes it easy to pick up its signature ribs, rib tips and other specialties.
Earlier this year, the restaurant at 1130 W. Walnut St. lost its matriarch and co-founder, Betty Gillespie, who died from colon cancer at the age of 73.
But the barbecue landmark has survived her passing, and continues to serve what OnMilwaukee.com readers have picked as the best ribs in town.
