If you turn on the Food Network tonight, you just might catch an episode of "Top 5 Restaurants" featuring some of the best bar food in the country, including food from Milwaukee Brat House, 1013 N Old World 3rd St.

The show, which is hosted by Sunny Anderson and Geoffrey Zakarian finds the hosts scouring the country in search for the Nation’s best cuisine. In the "Best Bar Food" episode, the focus will be on beer-soaked sausages, crispy chewy wings, succulent ribs and fully loaded potatoes.

In celebration of their appearance on the show, the Brat House will host a viewing party at the restaurant during which customers are invited to help themselves to a free brat buffet while watching the show, which airs at 9:30 p.m.

"As always, we are honored with the recognition," says Andrew Fronek, owner and operator of the Brat House. "And we appreciate being able to bring more positive national spotlight to the city we love!"

Can’t make it tonight?  The show airs again on Thursday, Feb. 4 at 12:30 a.m. and Saturday, Feb. 20 at 5:30 p.m.
