Delicious!

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!

Went to Pat's tonight with a friend. The food was fresh, cooked to order and quite good. Not fancy, low overhead, a hole in the wall, when they run out of an item that is it. We had bbq wings which were perfect, corn bites also perfect, and then a slab of ribs and pulled pork sandwich. All quite yummy.... More

This place is an unexpected GEM in a strip mall in Waukesha. My husband and I were here on a Saturday night and the place was jammed. I was blessed to have the last rack of baby back ribs and my husband had the pulled pork. Both were cooked perfectly and we enjoyed all the sauces! Call ahead for seating... More

Pats is a cozy home town place, with great food. Nothing fancy just a few tables and a food counter. Get there early the food goes fast. Great place to grab a quick authentic BBQ. I've been there many times and it is always packed. Veriety of choices in BBQ souces for all tasts

My husband and I like baby back ribs, so I remembered reading about a great Rib Shack in Waukesha that smoked them. (Way to go, Famous Daves, for taking them off your menu) We tried the baby backs along with their Sweet Potatoe Fries which were fantastic! The ribs are dry rub, but they had plenty of sauces at the... More

This place is small but big on quality. This is the best southern style barbecue you are going to find in the area. You have to get your order early because they sell out fast on a weekend. I all ways get my order to go. Limited seating, but if you have ever been to a southern road side barbecue... More

Pat's Rib Place has the best pulled pork sandwich. You just can't beat the dinner plate with baked beans and seasoned fries. There is plenty to eat and it's awesome with the house sauce. The fried okra is better than any I have tasted - even at the best restaurants down south. It's a small place but cozy and the... More

I'm from the south and have heard of Pat's Ribs since moving to Waukesha. I was told the food would take me home. I'd been let down by experiences at several other establishments. I'm sorry I doubted for so long. Some of the best spare ribs and baby back ribs I've ever eaten and the House sauce is not to... More

I recommend the BBQ pork sandwich with sweet potato fries. The sweet potato fries have some sort of brown sugar seasoning on them that is just delicious. Also make sure to try out the corn bites. They are amazing deep fried on the outside with this creamy corn center, just melts in your mouth. If you want ribs make sure... More
