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

I have eaten there twice now, and both times were excellent! Very friendly, sauce on the side and the best pulled pork in the world! We evn tried their pie! And there is always something leftover to take home. You will leave satisfied, and wanting more. Owners are friendly, staff is great and answers lots of questions. A small place,... 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.

My sons and I decided to eat here on a Saturday afternoon around 3:30pm. We had the spare ribs dinner, pulled pork sami, cole slaw, beans and the fresh apple pie. Everything was... More

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

Every time I call ahead for a take out order they tell me a time it will be ready so without delay I show up at that time. Every single time I get there they put my order in when I arrive thus I then have to wait for it to be prepared as if I was dining in! What... More

We went here for Sat. Lunch. Learned they had no beef ribs, and that you have to call ahead for special ordering for beef ribs. Ok, we tried the baby back pork rubs. These were tasty, a little fatty, and overall, not as good as what I fix at home. This place serves the meats dry and offers 3-4 varieties... More

First time encounter with Pats BBQ. Based on the reviews I had read, I decided it was a must to see what all the fuss was about. I was not disappointed. Pat's has some of the tastiest ribs, pulled pork and cornbread muffins that will make you say, "Dave, who? Hes no longer so famous." :) I brought my boy... More
