Fun atmosphere, fun food options at a good price

My husband and I decided to try AJ Bombers for dinner. Its a through your peanut shells on the floor type of place, so from the moment we walked in we could tell it was a fun atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and did a great job. My husband got the aj burger, i got the milwaukee burger and... read more

Great place to eat and everything we had was delicious! Had the Barrie Burger which has peanut butter on it with bacon and cheddar cheese. Very good! We also had the fried cheese curds which had very little breaking which we enjoyed. Custard was good also for desert. I would definitely go back and service was great!

I loved my burger. We all did and the ability to customize is awesome. My kids had a blast and I expect we will be back sooner rather than later.

The food and services was average at best. I was expecting more with the food tv publicity. Not bad just nothing special. I was disappointed they don't offer or work with another restaurant on a shuttle to miller park...especially considering they have a location at the park.

Ok, we loved the peanuts with the shells by our feet! But, we don't have allergies! We found the peanuts filling as we had a made to order burger which is honestly about my favorite in Milwaukee!!! Good work guys!

This is your basic dive bar with good grub. Went with the family to celebrate our son's girlfriend's birthday (their choice). The burgers are quite good with lots of options and the drinks are incredibly reasonable vis-a-vis price. The fries and haystack onion rings are crisp and not overly battered the way we like. Service was friendly and efficient despite... More

Food and service was excellent! We all enjoyed our burgers, with various toppings, fried cheese curds for appetizer and they were awesome and I had custard with the coffee mixed in which was wonderful too! It was one of those meals that you wanted to eat again from beginning to end! It was that good! One of the ladies at... More

1st: atmosphere. You have to wade through inches of peanut shells to get to your table (and no I'm not talking about at 3 am in a smoke filled bar but at 8 pm in a family friendly style restaurant). Good luck not slipping. How is this not a violation of health & safety codes? 2nd: food. I had heard... More
