Milwaukee, WI Edition: AJ Bombers

AJ BombersAJ Bombers is known for having one of the best burgers in Milwaukee. Specifically, their "Milwaukee Burger" was declared the Winner of Travel Channel's Food Wars. That alone was reason enough for me to want to check it out.

AJ BombersWe were seated quickly at the restaurant and handed plastic menus with a marker to check off our selections. This is a nice way to eliminate any confusion. I dig it.

Wouldn't it be easier to have another bowl to throw the shells in? It's also cool that the peanuts will travel to booths via this overhead contraption, but the table we were at was not equipped.

I ordered the Milwaukee Burger, which is a quarter-pound burger with Wisconsin colby cheese, Nueske's bacon, and Schlitz onions. I also ordered a side of tater tots.

This burger was made up, individually, of decent components. But altogether, I thought it lacked something. Maybe a sauce? I ended up using, gasp, ketchup. I liked the burger, liked the onions, like the bacon. Just a little bit of something-something would've put it over the top for me. And the tots? Can't really go wrong.
