You must try this restaurant if you have not been there and must return if it has been awhile. I stop by once or twice a year and it is such a treat. My go-to dinner is the beef burek but I have had other selections on their menu that are also a treat. Burek warms up well and makes... More

So happy that we ended up here for my nephew and his wife's anniversary dinner. There are so many wonderful restaurants in Milwaukee but this little neighborhood jewel deserves a place with them. Its small, charming and thoroughly delightful. The food was delicious and the Apple Strudel is not to be missed. Be prepared to be a little squished due... More

First visit this past Sat. night. Went with 2 friends who had dined here before. We didn't make a reservation, but knowing how Milwaukeeans are, we figured arriving at 8 wouldn't be a problem. We were correct and were seated promptly. I tried a Serbian beer (Golden Pheasant - $6 for a BIG bottle) and enjoyed it. My friends ordered... More

Started out rough -- we walked in at 4 pm on a Saturday evening and were asked if we had reservations by the young man who greeted us. He then went behind the bar, read something for about three minutes and then came and escorted us to a table. None of the tables began to fill until we had been... More

Used to live in the area, and this place was a favorite...very warm and casual, great food and a pleasant ambiance. We have, over the years, returned to meet with old friends. Our most recent visit was less than satisfying. It seems the old guard is gone...the old man has died, and we didn't spot any of the family in... More

Maybe, but don't. The vibe in this place is nice; the Formica tables, the old-style bar lights, the wooden kitchen chairs your grandma used to have. But that is where it ends. I have never been here before. I am not from Milwaukee (though I have come to love the town since moving to the area). My family has not... More

My husband loves the beef burek, while I prefer the goulash. This is one of the best restaurants in Milwaukee. Make a reservation, as seating is limited and the place fills up.

Branco and Pat have left this landmark restaurant in very capable hands. The charisma and charm is still there, and the food is one of the best ethnic cosines around.

More than 35 years ago I moved to Milwaukee, and my sister recommended this place. I lived there only for 2 years or so, but now every time I visit, I go back to this place. I once took some friends there and they loved the burek so much, that they looked up a recipe and now make it at... More

This isn't a Mexican restaurant with high school kids cooking a frozen chain meal. This is real Serbian food cooked by Serbs....and it's delicious. If you are arriving after 6 PM, have a reservation -- before 6 you can walk in (at least on a week night). Get the chopped salad for sure. After that some nice pork meal or... More
