Here are the 5 hottest restaurants in Halton for the week of July 15 to 21, based on the amount of organic page views and searches these restaurants received on inhalton.com.

5. The Gingerman Social Eatery


Essentially everything on the menu at the Gingerman is fantastic, including their burger and fries. The hand-cut Yukon gold fries are sprinkled with sea salt. They just hit the spot to the point where I could finish a massive platter of them for a solid, carb-filled, fatty meal. (Hopefully the cranky old guy who runs my gym doesn’t read this … or it will probably be death by burpee). Chase your meal with a glass of their hand-picked wine selection if you fancy vino, or be cool like me and order a whisky sour. The restaurant offers a great atmosphere with tons of wood and natural light, and is also known for its blue goose quesadilla, lettuce wraps, and salads.

4. Memphis BBQ & Wicked Wings


You know it's good when a national newspaper comes knockin' for some smokin' BBQ at a mom and pop shop.This family-run resto has been serving up southern BBQ for more than 20 years. In addition to winning accolades by the dozen, they’ve got a Woodbridge location bearing the same name. A few sauces are made in-house, such as the Alabama Slamma, and their smoked wings come doused in their Signature BBQ sauce. Overall, the Hot Creamy Parm is their most popular sauce. It looks dangerously fattening but ain't nobody got time to count calories when you're at the best wing joint in Milton!

3. Tosto Quickfire Pizza Pasta


There's a new option in town for Oakville pizza-lovers, and it's the first location in the west GTA. Known for casual Italian fast-food, Tosto Quickfire Pizza Pasta offers an open-concept, self-serve atmosphere that's almost cafeteria-style. The resto celebrated its grand opening about four months ago at Cornwall Rd. and Chartwell Rd. (in the east end of the Harper's plaza); Tosto means determined, prompt, no-nonsense. On the menu you'll find handcrafted Romano pizzas (try the Funghi Misti), plus pasta, salad, and antipasti. It’s the fifth Greater Toronto Area location for this chain, and the only one west of Toronto. (There’s also one in Vaughan). About 100 people can be seated inside and out. The resto's unisex single bathroom stalls, channel downtown Toronto.

2. Plank Restobar


The bread is freshly baked in-house and that salami ... oh my. It just might be the best sliced meat I've ever tasted. This margherita pizza with spicy salami brought out my inner ninja turtle. This Bronte Rd. restobar, south of Lakeshore Rd., absolutely blew me away with their pizza, featuring fresh basil, fior di latte, and tomato sauce. It's simplicity at its finest. (Pro tip: They serve pizza bread with the beet hummus -- it's phenomenal).

1. Palermo Pub


Regulars swear this pizza tastes even better the next day if you leave it on the counter overnight. It's yummy and leaves me wanting to order another as soon as it's gone. While the pizza is super greasy, the New-York style pepperoni is so tasty and a nice, subtle tasting sauce is something I'd like to see simmering on my stove. Formerly known as Jimmy Heroes, the popular restaurant has been family-owned and operated since 2004. Good luck getting a seat on wing night!
