I was at a Brewers game a dew weeks ago and seen they had a AJ Bombers. So I tried a burger and fries. There were a few people in front of me and it took about 10 minutes to get waited on. I ordered my food and it took another 10 minutes to get it. But surprise the food... More

How strange. I'm sorry. That shouldn't have happened. Yes, the line takes 10 minutes to get through, true. Yes, it takes 10 minutes to prepare your order fresh, true. But it should never have been cold or not tasty, that's no good and I'm sorry. I do appreciate your feedback though, and would love to make it up to you... More

I am a burger connoisseur and this place met all my expectations. Great burgers and great atmosphere. Loved the peanut bombers. You have to get the fried cheese curd appetizers.

I ate here for dinner after a long day of meetings....it is very convenient to the Loft hotel. The burgers are great, you can add any topping and basically get what you want...the fries and sides were really good too. I also ordered the wings for dessert since they have TV's and I was able to watch the hockey and... More

Service: great, servers explain the ordering process your first time Price: is average, it's reasonable, but once you start adding this and that, it can get to be a $15 burger. Well worth it, but be careful. lol Environment: Urban vibe. Loud, "graffiti" all over the booths and walls and markers for guests to draw as well. Peanut shells all... More

Severe weather outside but the local bar crowd was warm and friendly many of the city's bike messengers use this a a refueling stop... More

This was probably one of the best burgers I have ever had! We went on a Sunday afternoon and had to wait a little bit, but we were expecting it so it wasn't a big deal. We waited for about 20 minutes, but it was well worth the wait! The atmosphere is very unique and the food is great! We... More

After waiting for over 45 minutes, we were finally seated. The restaurant just feels dirty (peanut shells on floor is common tho). Cool concept. Hair in food & slow waitress - waited awhile for bill. Food was pretty good.

Went here while on a visit to Milwaukee. It was definitely a neat place - the peanut bombers are very unique. The music was good and the staff was friendly and in good spirits (singing along with songs, dancing behind the counter and chatting to customers). I had the poutine and the Milwaukee burger. Both were fine - I've had... More

Dinner at AJ Bombers in Milwaukee, WI was a great experience. The atmosphere was very laid back with its old brick wall - signed with hundreds of past customers - old wooden tables, and a floor scattered with peanut shells. The airplane bombers filled with peanuts and shot up to shoots that emptied into bowls for the tables was very... More

Took my 10 yr old granddaughter here. She loved it. We brought bright colored sharpies with us as she wandered around and wrote on the walls and the tray holding the napkins on our table. To be able to graffiti legally was fun for her. We arrived on a Thursday around 12:30 and got one of the last tables. Our... More
