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.

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.

This is the 2nd year we had food from Pai's Rib Place for our Christmas get-together with family. Once again the food was outstanding. The pulled pork and beef brisket melt in you mouth. Of course we had to have several sides: fries, coldslaw, beans and their delicious fried pickles. All were delicious. Their Apple Chunky Sauce was to die... More
