A grilled cheese sandwich rolled in cornflakes and deep fried is really a Cheese Frenchie,
courtesy of the departed King's Food Hosts, previously discussed here and elsewhere.

Well, I am sorry your meals in Milwaukee didnt make it in your top picks, but am so happy we met up.That, to me, was priceless after all these years. I have enjoyed your journeys, and hope to see you in the fall!!!

Not necessarily. The unusual thing on this trip is that I didn't have a bad meal anywhere, even The D & J Cafe in Springfield was "ordinary" but not bad or terrible.
 
Kopps Frozen Custard will likely find itself on a top 10 dessert list at the end of the year, and although it's too early too tell where it may fare at the end of the year, The Milwaukee Brat House was certainly a highlight on this trip, oh and the best coffee house of the trip (Alterra's) was in Milwaukee
