The votes are in, and the winners have been selected for OnMilwaukee's Best Dining 2008. 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

October is Dining Month on All month, we're stuffed with restaurant reviews, special features, chef profiles and unique articles on everything food. Bon appetit!

For the first time in years, a new sandwich maker has stolen the crown for best in town. The Chocolate Factory's reign was long and strong, but this year readers voted the sandwiches at Lulu, 2261 and 2265 S. Kinnickinnic Ave., as their favorite.

Perhaps its that famous Asian slaw or homemade potato chips that accompany them that sealed the deal?

Either way, Milwaukeeans are fanatic for the pitas -- the chipotle chicken, the Mediterranean steak, the Mid-East falafel, the East Indian chicken, the hummus or the roasted vegetable. The savory melts -- Santa Fe cheddar, the Florentine and the Sicilian -- are favorites, too.

Of course, Lulu does baguettes like no other, offering seven different meat and vegetarian varieties.
