Just GOOD food!

Plan ahead and don't take a big group! Limited seating but terrific Bar-b-que! Everything from the ribs to the catfish were terrific! My husband wanted to move back to Waukesha! Share whenever possible or do take out, the portions are huge!

Great place for relaxed, homey bbq and atmosphere, with background blues to complement your experience. Multiple choices of homemade bbq sauces from mild to spicy hot.

We recently ordered carry out from Pat's Rib Place and was, as always, very satisfied with the authentic ribs they serve. I had a full rack spare rib dinner, served up with Alisha's secret sauce, the beans, cole slaw and some tasty sweet potato fries. There is enough food left over for a second meal, even for a big guy... More

I would like to say everything on the menu is great - it probably is - but I never make it past the beef fry basket. It is so good I have a hard time ordering anything else. Not only does Pat's have really good BBQ, they also make a selection of tasty sauces and serve the best french fries... More

The food was good but they I didn't get what I really wanted because they were out of it. The sauces were okay, but I've made better at home. Lastly, the place itself is rather small. It is much easier to order and go. The fries were probably the best thing I ate.

Went here for the first time to celebrate my birthday, as we've heard nothing but rave reviews of how good their bbq was. We (10 of us - 6 adults, 4 kids) came in about 3:30 in the afternoon. Most of us wanted the brisket. However, we were informed they only had enough for 1 sandwich worth of brisket. Since... More

So glad to find this place. Food was fresh and delicious. I had the pulled pork over fries. Loved that I could try the sauces myself. Very tasty Cole slaw...for some reason restaurants around here have a hard time making a simple Cole slaw...This was very tasty. Crunchy and sweet!
