10. Mushroom French Toast - Story Hill BKC

If you’re looking to try something you’ve never had before and encounter tons of flavor, then look no further! Story Hill BKC creates a starter that is not short on creativity OR flavor.

9. Nachos Camp Stanley - SafeHouse

Bring all of your friends for this one. This October favorite feeds plenty with freshly made tortilla chips loaded with SafeHouse’s secret house made sauce that combines cheddar, pepper jack and American cheese. Agents can make the calculated decision of seasoned ground beef, house smoked chicken or black beans to top the mountain of food before having the nachos completed with pico de gallo, avocado crema, cilantro and pickled jalapeños!

8. Georgia Peach Napoleon - Kil@wat


Sweet as a Georgia peach! This dessert favorite from Kil@wat fulfills all sweet tooth desires by combining puff pastry, peaches, pastry cream and pecans. How’s that for an alliteration!

7. Elvis Has Left the Building Donut - Metcalfe’s Market

Peanut butter + Chocolate + Banana on a DONUT. Who could ask for anything more? Metlcalfe’s utilizes this magnificent trio of peanut butter icing, chocolate drizzle and banana chips to top a made fresh daily donut . Have mercy!

6. Roasted Cauliflower Salad - Story Hill BKC


Story Hill BKC shows up again in the top 10 with a dish that is equal parts fresh and imaginative! They bring together roasted cauliflower served chilled in a light lemon vinaigrette, with dried grape tomatoes, toasted pine nuts, baby arugula and Montamoré cheese and finish it with a dollop of Central Greens basil pesto.

5. Wisconsin Fish Fry - Miller Time Pub & Grill

What can we say, you really can’t go wrong with a fish fry and hankr-ers concur! Miller Time serves up this classic the only way they know how - perfectly.

A warm welcome has to be given to our newest restaurant addition as well as their induction into October’s top 10! Sprecher goes above and beyond with their Curd Burger topped with, you guessed it, CHEESE CURDS.

3. Pig Monster Sandwich - ABV Social

2. Chef’s Taco Platter - El Jefe

Another recurring favorite comes in at the top of the list! With the variety this dish offers, it’s no wonder that it has maintained it’s popularity.
