Best BBQ, hands down!

I consider myself a BBQ connoisseur and Pat's Rib Place wins the "best BBQ" award, hands down. The spares are wonderful, pulled pork melts in your mouth and the smoky flavor of all of their meats is excellent. Their homemade sauces are to die for. I like a sweet sauce, so the apply chunky and Brown... read more

I really like this tiny little place. Fried catfish, fried okra (yes, I am from the South), BBQ, etc. Very, VERY small place. The staff is super friendly and the food is very good.

We love Pat's Ribs. The only down side is the sometimes rude staff. Customer service is not a priority here, but the food makes up for it..

The pulled pork dinners were terrific, also had the fried pickles, yum. There's a nice choice of sauces to be had, and we sampled almost all of them. Good portions and extra friendly, happy people to deal with. All of this makes you want to keep going back. We will, of course.

Pat's Rib Place has been in Waukesha for some time but I was reluctant to try them. Someone at work was placing an order for lunch and I joined in. OMG.......I can't believe what I was missing all this time. I couldn't wait to tell my husband about them. I ordered 2 take out dinners and my husband loves them... More

On the way into Waukesha for a Friday Night concert, I mentioned this restaurant to my wife and we decided that this would be our pre-concert meal. We arrived around 5:30 and the cashier informed us immediately that there will not be any ribs available until after 6:30. Since ribs were not the reason for our visit we just brushed... More

The food we had was great. Unfortunately they were out of 1/2 of their menu. Luckily we timed it well and the ribs were ready. They was awesome. The sauces were delicious and they had a variety so everyone could find one they liked. We will go back, but I hope they find a better way to have more of... More

Last night we ate in the "Smallest Restaurants in Waukesha" and Definitely one of the BEST! All I can say is: "The Porkers didn't die in vain!" A selection of Pork and Beef to die for...Not to mention the great selection of SAUCES: Sweet Brown-Brown, Mild Pat's House Sauce, Hot Memphis Mad Dawg, Sweet and HOT Alisha's Special and our...

Good prices for simple bbq. Ribs are great. There are different bbq sauces for you to choose from at table. Get there early there is limited seating because it's a small place. Usually pretty busy there. Nice people run it.
