McBob's

4919 W. North Ave., Milwaukee, WI - (414) 871-5050

McBob's is a great stop on the way to or from a Brewer's game as it is very close to the stadium. I recommend the Reuben sandwich because you can order extra meat; heaven. They also offer a "deluxe" corned beef sandwich, available only on weekdays. The secret to their fantastic corned beef is that it is made in a pressure cooker. Amazingly succulent!

Wisconsin is known for great cheese; Milwaukee is the home of excellent rye bread; McBob's makes some of the earth's most delicious corned beef. Is it any wonder the Reuben sandwich is extraordinary?

Grouper is an especially wonderful Friday-night fish to fry. It has a sweet flavor and the well-seasoned batter is thin and refined. Note how the potato pancakes serve as a trivet below the fried fish.

Here is a close view of the grouper, showing its thin crust and clean, moist meat.

We love the way McBob's corned beef is served more as chunks than as slices. It is extremely tender, well-spiced, and succulent. Please pass the horseradish mustard!

McBob's is the rare tavern also open for breakfast, and they serve spectacularly good corned beef hash.

A favorite 'mixed' drink for many Milwaukeeans: a shot and a bottle of Pabst

McBob's also uses their chunky corned beef to make world class Reubens.

McBob's looks like a fairly typical neighborhood tavern, but it serves one of Milwaukee's best corned beef sandwiches (and Milwaukee is a city of great corned beef sandwiches).
