Milwaukee Lunch Spots Tue, 07/7/09 8:04 PM (permalink)
Hi everyone,
 
I am new here and so glad that I found you.  This site is amazing.  I have several articles on some great lunch locations in the Milwaukee area for those of you interested in visiting our fine city.  LuAnn (Milwaukee Lunch)

    Welcome to the Roadfood site, LuAnn. we hope you find lots of good places to eat,  both near and far !

    Mader's does indeed offer a fine lunch. Especially after shopping at the Usingers meat store across the street !

        I'm surprised that I've never heard of George Webb restaurants until this evening, as I've driven all over the Milwaukee metro area, plus Kenosha and Racine, and I've never seen one. Is George's food better than that at the big family restaurant chains like Denny's and Perkin's? If so, what menu item(s) at Webb's would y'all recommend?

          It's WAY better!

          I like the poached eggs & toast. I like the pancakes. I like the corndogs. I like the coffee. I like the steak & eggs.

          George Webb's however, has hash whites. That's right. You can order them well done, they still won't be crispy. If that is what you're after, then don't even bother. Aside from that, I've never had a bad meal there.

              I especially like George Webb's breakfasts. i have never had my over easy eggs done incorrectly.Bob likes their double cheeseburger with fried onins and pickles( he will have that for breakfast) As far as their hashbrowns, we love them with cheese. We do ask for them well done and they come out quite crispy.Maybe it all depends on location-Aimee, which Webbs do you tend to go to?

                  This place is great for Cuban and I used to live in Miami and Key West....I only wish they had one here in Madison. I'd be there very often.

                    Welcome to the site.

                    There is a cadre of MKE and IL ppl that get together regularly to eat - but mostly dinner.

                    We do have our favorite lunch spots, as well.

                    Best places for lunch (or dinner!), IMO, in no particular order, and by no means comprehensive:

                    Martino's
                    Sammy's Red Hots
                    Glorioso's
                    George Webb's
                    FIXX Coffeehouse
                    Soup Otzie
                    Nite Owl
                    Kopp's
                    Comet
                    Fuel Cafe
                    Dog Haus
                    StreetzaPizza
                    Ferch's
                    Classic Slice
                    Bella's Fat Cat
                    Fork In The Road Cafe (Outpost on KK)
                    Popeye's Chicken (yes, really)

                      Is the Palomino still open? It's down by you, X1.

                        Yes, indeed, Palomino is still open.
                        For lunch? Not sure - but definitely for dinner and weekend Brunch.

                        And hey, S_D? Ferch's, located in Greendale, serves Green River phosphate.
