Best Appetizer, Not Cheese Curds (location and item)

1st Place: Cancun Mexican Grill chips & salsa
2nd Place: Egg Roll Plus egg rolls
3rd Place: Toppers Pizza Topperstix


If you haven’t had chips and salsa at Cancun Mexican Grill (four Chippewa Valley locations), you’re probably in the minority around here. After missing first place in our 2013 poll after a two-year streak, this Mexican combo is back at No. 1. Cancun gives you as much as you’d like (for free) as soon as you sit down &nspace; and they’re unassumingly delicious. My suggestion is to grab a margarita, a friend, hang out, and indulge. Right behind Cancun and a first-time placer in this category are the Egg Rolls Plus egg rolls &nspace; which seem to be losing their “best kept secret” status. The locally-owned family restaurant (1611 Bellinger St., Eau Claire) takes the time to make quality Asian cuisine, and it comes across in this signature name-of-the-restaurant dish. Get egg rolls as an appetizer or make them a meal (they’re pretty inexpensive). Topperstix from Toppers (three Chippewa Valley locations) are also a first-time winner in this category. Their cheesy goodness have been a longtime favorite of college students and others alike. –Lindsey Quinnies
