Milwaukee: hankr's top-10 dishes from December

Not only are we in a new month, but a new YEAR! That calls for some serious celebrating. And, of course, another round of the month’s top ten dishes decided by you hungry hankr-ers. We thank you for bringing to our attention these beautiful works of art and look forward to checking all of them off our “To Eat” list in January!

Without further ado…

10. Crispy Fish Tacos - Miller Time Pub & Grill


Miller Time is an exceptional place to grab burgers, cheese curds and wings, it being a pub and all, but their little known secret, Crispy Fish Tacos, should be reason alone to check them out. With all these crucial football games coming up, it's also the place to be to cheer your team to victory. *Go Pack Go*


9. Al Pastor Taco - Taqueria El Jefe

Speaking of tacos, let's shift to a place where tacos are the specialty! Our next dish breaches the ranks of the top-10 with it's mouthwatering display of marinated pork, caramelized pineapple, diced onion and salsa verde. The pork is spit-roasted and marinated for hours to perfect the traditional taco and embody the #SeeEatLove hankr motto.


8. Classic Wisconsin Fish Fry - Miller Time Pub & Grill

Miller Time Pub knows what they're doing when it comes to fish. Not only was their fried fish featured in our #10 top dish, but we see it again with their classic fish fry. This one is not to miss. Their cod is Miller High Life beer-battered and complemented with cool coleslaw and perfectly crisp fries. To top it off, Miller Time serves their fish fry all week long, so don't wait until Friday! 


7. Hot Diggity Dog - Sprecher's Restaurant & Pub

This is an exciting dish created by Sprecher's Restaurant that adds some excitement to an otherwise straightforward dog. Their Hot Diggity Dog is made with two all beef Angus hot dogs and topped with house mac n' cheese, crisp onion straws, bacon bits, scallions and sriracha drizzle for a little kick! Put that all in a pretzel bun and you have yourself a top-10 contender.


6. Brussels Waffle - Cafe Benelux

Benelux's Brussels Waffle is no stranger to the top-10 list for obvious reasons. I mean, just look at it for a second. Swoon-worthy, right? Their perfected breakfast dish starts with a waffle and ends with Belgian bier cheese sauce. Add in asparagus, fried eggs, pancetta, parmesan and there's scientifically no way you could have a bad day after this! 


5. Nashville Hot Chicken - Sprecher's Restaurant & Pub

Sprecher's has earned their way to the top-5 by translating a Nashville classic to a hometown Wisconsin favorite with their take on Hot Chicken. They serve their delicious chicken panko-breaded and drizzled with spicy sauce, plenty of pickles, toast and French fries. No need to go to Nashville! 


4. Buttermilk Fried Chicken Waffle - Cafe Benelux

Benelux makes it to the top-10 again and again with another delectable waffle. Their Buttermilk Fried Chicken Waffle brings together the wonderful flavors of cinnamon apples, candied walnuts, and syrup atop a fluffy homemade waffle. Yep, this is real life. 


3. 911 Burger - Sprecher's Restaurant & Pub

Sprecher's is at it again with their unique flair to pub food. This burger is topped (ambushed?) with pulled pork, pepper jack cheese, bacon and deep fried jalapeños made complete once again by their delicious pretzel bun. Might need to ask for a few extra napkins for this one, but TOTALLY worth it! 


2. Sushi Rolls - Metcalfe's

It's no wonder that Metcalfe's Sushi Rolls are consistently in the top-10. With options including the Blazing California Roll, California Roll, Southern Charm Roll, Sriracha Party Roll, Crispy Crab Roll, Tokyo Fantasy Roll, and Veggie Roll on special every Wednesday for only $4.99(!?), what could be better?


1. Old Fashioned Fish Fry - Sprecher's Restaurant & Pub

Thanks to you, the top spot is earned by Sprecher's! It's no surprise after taking a look at this heavenly Fish Fry. What better way to fry a fish than with their own Sprecher beer batter? Add in some irresistible pub fries and coleslaw and you've got yourself a meal suited for any hungry hankr-er! Oh, did we mention this dish also comes with your choice of a Sprecher beer, gourmet soda or Old Fashioned cocktail? 

A big congratulations to our top-10 dishes and their restaurants as we head into the New Year! It's an exciting time for hankr as we continue to partner with more restaurants in Milwaukee and Madison and work towards even more expansion! As always, thank you so much for joining and supporting us on this journey. It's definitely an exciting one and we can't wait to for all the dishes out there that we can #SeeEatLove with you! 

In the meantime, stay hungry, hankr-ers!
