For the fifth straight year, October is Dining Month on, presented by Concordia University. All month, we're stuffed with restaurant reviews, delectable features, chef profiles and unique articles on everything food, as well as the winners of our "Best of Dining 2011."

For the first time ever, we've created categories for best restaurant in a number of geographic regions. Organ Piper Music Palace – often referred to as "Organ Piper Pizza" – takes the brand new title for Milwaukee's best restaurant in the Southern Suburbs.

Organ Piper is a unique, kitschy combination of pizza and live organ music. Every night of the week, with the exception of Mondays, a talented organ player sits down at the massive Wurlitzer and plays recognizable songs, both old and new. Plus, they take requests.

The best part is that it's not all gimmick: the pizza is actually very good, too. Plus, Organ Piper offers adult beverages along with a menu of non-pizza items.

The staff of agrees that Organ Piper Music Palace is the finest in the area, so much so that two staff members' kids had birthday parties there this year. editors' choice: Organ Piper Music Palace
