Good Eats In Milwaukee?

Went to Sobelman's last night with a friend visiting from Boston, what a great place! Friendly, casual atmosphere and good food for a fair price. I got the Sobelman Burger, based on my tastes I'd give it a 7 out of 10. The quality of the meat, toppings and bun was top notch but the flavor was a bit lacking for me.

Hoping to try Speed Queen next!

I really appreciate your ethnic food suggestions. I'm hoping to find some good alternatives for my status quo foods but, to your point, I'd like to add new foods to my list just as much!

I have been to Leon's, had a chocolate malt. I'm very picky with my malts and it was excellent! Looking forward to going back.

Thanks again!

I'm with you on the pizza crust, I like thin but not cracker thin.

Egg, meat and mustard? I'm in for trying that!

It didn't take me long to figure out that fish fry fridays are akin to a religious experience around here. I'm not a big fried fish fan, although I have consumed many meals in the south that were nothing but "golden brown goodness", mostly chicken. With that said you've sold me on trying the fish!

I'm not looking to fight just eat so maybe I'll find some authentic Mexican that will change my opinion, I hope so!

Thanks!

Wow...thanks everyone for the great suggestions, I've got my weekend meals planned for a while!

As for the elusive Tex Mex, there isn't a particular entree I prefer as much as the overall approach to seasoning. I define Tex Mex as being a bolder flavor than Authentic Mexican. I place a a lot of stock in the salsa, it all kind of starts there for me. Beyond that I pretty much like all the standard fare: Burritos, Tacos, Enchiladas, Beans, Rice, etc. Down South you close your eyes, throw a rock and you'll hit two places that serve good-to-great Tex Mex...I'm going to miss that!

Thanks again everyone and keep the suggestions coming!

I am new to Milwaukee and need the scoop on the where to eat. I am a true foodie (think Adam Richman from Man v. Food) so give me those great spots that know how to serve the good stuff. Here's my wish list of foods but I'll take any suggestions:

Burgers (the messier the better)
Pizza (this is a staple of my food supply)
Tex Mex (I know there's a lot of authentic mexican up here and I respect that but I'm a tex mex guy)
BBQ (I used to live in the south so if you're gonna suggest something it better be good)
Samiches (sandwiches to most people but messy cheesy goodness to me)

Thanks in advance fellow Chowhounds!
