“Fun, affordable, DELICIOUS!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Needed a place to get some food before a rugby game at Marquette, and a friend recommended Sobelman's! Went for a burger and was convinced to order the FAMOUS bloody mary. THIS is a meal in itself with lots of accompaniments (onion, pickle, olive, cheese, sausage, shrimp, celery, mushroom...) with a hamburger and a beer chaser...for $10!!!! Really? A little glass of wine costs more than that! AND, let me not forget the burger and sweet potato fries...DELICIOUS!

Be careful...there are 2 locations, and I was waiting to meet someone at the wrong place! One is right on Marquette's campus, and the other (that has a parking lot) is on St. Paul.

“Worth the wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

If you're looking for great bar food, this is the place! While you might have to wait in the standing room only bar, a Spotted Cow on tap will make it go quickly! Once you sit down, try the fried mac and cheese...deep fried childhood delicious! The Sobelman burger and the Chicken Sobelman are beyond yummy...next time I would order the burger without the fried onions. The sweet potato fries were average, but I think that might be because the jalapeno ketchup that is on the tables is SO amazing with the regular fries! We also visited the Sobelman's at Marquette, and the food was on par with the original. Overall, worth the wait!

“The best burgers in Milwaukee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

We oftern visit Sobelnans because the burgers are the best in town. I would recommend the hangover. They also have great appetizers to include deep fried pickles, cheese curds and deep fried macaroni. This establishment is also family friendly.

“BEST BURGERS!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Really neat, old bar, no frills, but really a great burger, still love the Loser burger and better than A.J. Bombers. We had the cheese balls with bacon and jalapeños for appetizer, was a good new addition. Don't go if you are an impatient person wanting a typical chain restaurant burger. Friendly service,

“Great for Sunday Funday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Went to Sobelman's JUST for the Bloody Mary on Sunday. Feast in itself. Pretty darn good burgers too but I had NO ROOM for them (had just eaten at McBob's).
