Fun place, decent burgers

Visited here, as it was featured on tv for having the best burgers in Milwaukee. The burgers are, indeed, good enough. The free peanuts delivered by track-riding bombs is a clever idea, and the atmosphere is fun. Small place and often well-attended. The historic architecture of the surroundings is... read more

We stopped here after the Admirals game so given the timing we obviously had a 40min wait. Our waitress was outstanding after being seated. She was "on top" of drinks and extra napkins. We visited with our 9yoa son and he loved it. The peanuts came BOMB style and he got to write on the wall :) We tried the... More

lunch on a Sunday, got there promptly at noon - tried to get there earlier based on comments I read online, but my companion would not oblige. we both got burgers and fries - fries were very pedestrian- burgers were good but not worth the wait

I went to AJ Bombers with very, very high expectations. Even though it was busy, after a short wait we were able to get a table, we just had a beer while waiting. The food was surprisingly fast because every table was full. The food itself was amazing. It was everything I was hoping for. It is rare for something... More

We heard about this place from some friends and decided to stop by when we were in town. We parked in the lot across the street, which unfortunately only had one price so we had to pay for all day instead of the hour we were going to spend there. Our boys loved the huge chairs outside the place and... More

Went to AJ Bombers for the first time. The Bloody Mary was pretty good. We had the peanut butter burger and a chicken sandwich both were good. Nice atmosphere and the waitress was really nice. Would go there again.

We stopped by on a Saturday night for an early dinner... it was crowded and we had about a 30 minute wait, but it was worth it! There were four of us, and we tried several burgers on the menu... (Barrie Burger, Bomber Burger and Milwaukee Burger) and they were all delicious! Our waitress Sofia was excellent! We were too... More

Stopped here for lunch on the way back from Green Lake. They had a special burger that was really incredible, a little spicy and very tasty! We also ordered Bloody Mary's, that were wonderful, they make them like a meal in a glass! You get a slice of a burger with a hunk of cheese wrapped in bacon as a... More
