Delicious!

I love this place. The meat is so tender. And you have about six different homemade BBQ sauces to choose from. It's a small place, I think there's about 5 tables. It's an order and pick up at the counter style of place. Prices are very reasonable.

Great place for BBQ in Waukesha, right in our own back yard!! I like the selection of amounts, can get plate lunches or buy ala cart. The sauces are excellent. The hardest decision is which one I am going to try!!!! Have not found one I didn't Love. Service is always friendly and fast. Whether it is take out or... More

Quests I was expecting more but just wasn't that great. Ribs were a little tough. No atmosphere at all.

Hi, this little place has great food (especially enjoyed the pork sandwich) However, not much space to eat in so I would recommend takeout.

My sons love this place. It's small but the food is great. Ribs, brisket, fries, and beverages. The brown-brown sauce is yummy!

Wanted ribs to take out. The famous chain menu only carried St. Louis style. We wanted real baby back ribs. I had heard about Pat's and then read reviews on Trip Advisor. All the positives I read were right on the money. Pat's Baby Back Ribs are delicious. We got two full racks. There were three of us and granted... More

I have been here many, many times with different family members. While I will say that I am not a big fan of BBQ, the people that have dined with me-LOVE IT. They say its truly southern style and enjoy the sides that are available. For me? I actually enjoy their chicken tenders with beans or fried pickles. While the... More

It takes a unique place for me to give 5 stars.....I did for this. The ribs were awesome, tender, and the rib rub was great. Beans could have had a few more chunks of bacon. Cole slaw was really good and the corn bread was to die for. Fries seemed just a bit greasy...give them an extra shake. Price was... More

I may have been in Waukesha, but inside of Pat's I was back in the South! You can't go wrong with Blues Music and BBQ! The ribs were fantastic! Thanks for the great hospitality as well!
