Milwaukeeans may be known for eating bratwurst, but we're pretty fond of chicken wings in these parts, too.
Think about it...
In terms of TV ratings, interest and merchandise sales, the Milwaukee-Madison-Green Bay triangle constitutes one of the hotter football markets in the country. Football fans like to eat while they watch games.
What food goes better with football than chicken wings?
When it comes to wings, OnMilwaukee.com readers like variety.
With 14 different sauces and five local locations (Water Street, Mayfair, West Allis, New Berlin and West Bend), Buffalo Wild Wings was a clear winner over Elsa's on the Park, which finished second.
The votes were spread out over the 15 finalists, but the "Other" category finished second, which showed a great diversity in the palates of the electorate. Among the leaders in the "also receiving votes" category was Points East Pub, a favorite among wing-a-holics that will undoubtedly be a contender for next year's prize.
