Thanks to many dedicated people and businesses, Downtown is the heart of Milwaukee and the entire state of Wisconsin. This week, OnMilwaukee presents Milwaukee Downtown Week, sponsored, aptly, by Milwaukee Downtown, BID #21. For seven days, we will share stories, videos and photography profiling some of the neighborhood’s best offerings and celebrating those who make it so great.

I love a good bratwurst, and pairing that with some french fries makes it even better. I pass The Dogg Haus every day on my way to the office and have always been intrigued to give the place a try.

So I decided to take advantage of our $7 lunch challenge and see what I could find on the menu for $7 or less. 

I went in with the hope of getting a brat, but I was also prepared to settle for a hot dog in case price became a factor. Luckily, the brat fit my budget, costing $4.29. So with some cash to spare, I was able to purchase an order of small french fries for $1.69. All together, the total after tax was $6.34. I was very pleased, to say the least, not to mention it tasted great. 

The Dogg Haus is sure to remain on my list of affordable and tasty lunch destinations Downtown.
