The onion rings at Stack'd in Milwaukee. SeriousEats.com wrote this past week: "As an appetizer, they're served a foot high on a metal spindle, which has its pros and cons: It keeps the rings crispy longer as they're not steaming in a pile, but they don't stay hot very long. The onions slices are massive—some half an onion tall—and the crumb breading clings to the onion beautifully. The zesty barbecue aioli sauce served with the rings is a nice change from the standard ranch dressing. There were so many in the appetizer order we had to doggy bag half of them."
Tell me those don't look awesome.
