We enjoyed ourselves the first time. I did have an issue with the size of the Barbeque Chicken Wings. They were the smallest wings I've ever seen. My children wanted to go back since we were in the area so I said sure. The children...More

I went to AJ Bombers with a group of friends and had a nice time. I can not eat gluten, though, and was disappointed that there were no gluten free bun options for the sandwiches.

AJ Bombers was great! We are from Chicago and came for a weekend. The wait was 5 minutes and we were able to check in early on Yelp and hop in line. The service was friendly, the food was wonderful, and the prices were great.

We called ahead to make a reservation but it didn't seem to guarantee us a seat right away from what I recall.

Fun. With a side of P-nuts, Burgers and Beer! It's Rube Goldberg meets Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory. Except Rube is into P-nuts and Willy Wonka is into crazy Cheeseburgers. And both are very happy about it. It's just as fun to hang here with your friends or bring the kids for a fun family meal. Order for takeout or delivery on our website, and we can bring the fun to you! By the way, our Milwaukee Burger was declared Winner of the Travel Channel's FOOD WARS. No need for reservations here, just walk-in and have some fun. If there's a wait for a table grab a beverage and some p-nuts and scope out your favorite table. The p-nut delivery system is just the start of the fun, so get in here and grub!
