Cool Stop for a Burger

Popped into AJ Bombers in Milwaukee for a burger this past Saturday around 1:00. It was a 30 minute wait as the restaurant itself is actually very small. But we didn't mind waiting at all as you can grab a beverage while you wait and the staff was very nice and put a soccer game on TV we wanted... read more

Great food! Fun place to eat. Free peanuts and you can just drop the shells on the floor. Decor was fun. Service staff was friendly and was happy to give a bill to each person in our 9 party group. Fried pickles were great and one person in our group thiied the peanut butter burger and liked it.

We enjoyed a great lunch at this restaurant - unique way to "drop" peanuts at our booth. We look forward to visiting again. Their signature burger is fabulous but so is the grilled cheese with tomato and avocado.

We were advised by our cab driver to check it out, and he was spot on. The food was fantastic. The atmosphere is great. The prices are reasonable.

AJ Bombers was delicious! It was our first trip to Milwaukee and AJ Bombers was exactly what we were looking for; cheese curds, delicious burgers, frozen custard. The fried cheese curds were so good that we ordered a second basket. The burgers were delicious with fresh toppings. My husband tried the burger with peanut butter which sounds like a crazy... More

We were waiting to go on a river tour and stopped in based on passed reviews. It was great. Greeted by friendly staff and when they knew we were from out of town, our wonderful bartender gave us all sorts of tips. Watching the peanut bombs startle everyone was an added bonus ;). Cold beer, great fried pickles and burgers... More

Cool theme restaurant with the best burgers in Milwaukee. The restaurant is very small though so make sure to make reservations or get there early.

This is my favorite place to visit when we are in Milwaukee. I absolutely love the Barrie Burger (peanut butter bacon cheeseburger. They deliver peanuts so avoid if you have allergies. Burgers and sides are delicious!
