Best Appetizer, Not Cheese Curds (location and item)

Look – we can’t eat cheese curds for every meal, OK?! (Thanks a lot, limits of the human digestive tract.) But hey – this is a great thing, mostly because we have limitless other choices available right here in the Chippewa Valley! When it comes to the best apps, readers agree that the egg rolls from Egg Roll Plus (1611 Bellinger St., Eau Claire) are the best. They’re affordable, delicious, and have been a staple snack of the community for decades. Can’t go even a moment without a little cheese? Our readers devour the chips, salsa and queso from Cancun Mexican Grill (multiple Chippewa Valley locations), with warm, ooey-gooey goodness sure to hit the spot. When readers want to indulge in food from the heart, Live Great Food’s cauliflower poppers always satisfy. — Cullen Ryan
