The Best Wings in Milwaukee

The OpenTable Team

Milwaukee, Wisconsin started out as an outpost for fur traders in the Midwest. A wave of German immigrants in the mid-1800s brought expert industrial skills and European elegance. Today, the city celebrates its German culture with its German Fest in July and an Oktoberfest in October, and of course, beers all year long. With beer comes bar food, and what better way to snack while drinking than with a plate of wings? So where do in-the-know diners go when it comes to the best wings in Milwaukee? Welcome to the Tastemaker 20. Here, we've gathered information from local foodies to put together this list of the best wings in Milwaukee. Grab a table (and a few napkins) and enjoy!
