Bartolotta’s Osgood’s to Open Nov. 3

The counter-service purveyor of hot dogs, Italian beef and much more brings another dining option to The Mayfair Collection.

Wauwatosa’s The Mayfair Collection has Pizza Man and Corner Bakery. Now comes Osgood’s (11500 W. Burleigh St., 414-988-6044), the Bartolotta counter-service restaurant serving hot dogs, Italian beef, burgers, ribs and lots more. Rather, Osgood’s comes officially to fruition on Tuesday, Nov. 3. The joint offers dine-in, carryout and drive-through service. (A private dining area is available, too.)  Back to the menu items, if it’s easy to carry out, it’s pretty much on the menu: pulled pork, grilled cheese, fried shrimp basket, beef chili, Greek salad, brats and Italian sausage, fried cheese curds, smothered fries and tater tots, plus a medley of frozen custard creations (sundaes, shakes and malts, banana splits and so on). Hours:  Daily 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Click here to access the website.
