Apparently, a ton of ppl showed up. They broke the wi-fi in the area with their Twittering. LOL
I was at work, so couldn't go. My friends did, and said it was a great time. 
If anyone's on Twitter, follow @AJBombers @Sobelmans and the hash #foodwars 
I can't make tomorrow's filming, either, but I hope I can make it to Saturday's big show.

Thanks for all the compliments you guys.
We worked our butts of to create this masterpiece, even slow roasting the yellow onions to take the edge off before we caramelize them briefly in Schlitz, yes I said Schlitz. Plus Nueske's bacon AND WI Colby-Jack? Jeez I'm hungry again. 

What a fun week.

This is a seriously tasty burger.  I have had three of them now.  The onions are a nice compliment, they don't overpower the taste of the perfectly cooked beef, and the Nueske's bacon gives a great sweet smokiness. 

I was a fan of Sobleman's for years, but I think the quality of their burgers has gone down.  Do I think AJ Bombers is the best burger in Milwaukee?  Perhaps, but my burger tastes fluctuate with my mood.  If I want a greasy spoon burger, probably Webbs or Solly's.  If I want a burger that has tons of flavor that all melds beautifully, I think I'll drive down to Water Street and hit Bombers (when I don't feel like making my own burgers at home that is).

Two types of Schlitz. The good one is the old pre-1960's recipe. It has much more of a hops flavor than most and is quite good. The brand is now owned by Pabst which no longer has any physical breweries. All their beers are contracted out. I think distribuation is mainly in the Midwest, primarily Chicago and Milwaukee. Very good beer.

I was so surprised when I had the old Schlitz recently (which I believe was at your suggestion, MFL, at Christies!). I was expecting a Budwiser-esque or Miller-esque type deal (which are not my favorites, too light in flavor for me).  But this new-old Schlitz really is good. I say "new-old" because they only recently dusted off the old recipe for production once again, about 2 years ago or so.

Has the show been aired yet? Has the "winner" been revealed?

The show has not aired yet, Q.

In other news, the Travel Channel will be filming this Friday at AJ Bombers for a new show - Best Places I've Ever Been.

Yes, the burgers are that good. Get 'em now, before it's impossible to get in there.

A little rain didn't close AJ Bomber's.  We ate there on Saturday, with 3 of us ordering the Milwaukee Burger that was featured on Travel TV.  It is my new favorite burger.

There are two varieties of Schlitz being sold right now. The long-neck bottles are the old formula, but if you buy it in cans you are getting the current day tasteless brew that compete with the bland American lagers. Just so everyone understands that...

The Twin Cities was a test city for the old formula before they rolled it out in more places.

The new season of FOOD WARS begins August 18th, following Man vs. Food on Wednesdays!
Hopefully, AJ Bombers vs. Sobelman's will be the premiere episode
