McBob's

4919 W. North Ave., Milwaukee, WI - (414) 871-5050
McBob's is crowded and noisy and the aroma of beer fills the air. There is another smell, too: hot corned beef. While McBob's has its fish fry every Friday (and Wednesday, too), corned beef is on the menu every day; and it is terrific. The fish fry comes with your choice of perch, walleye, or grouper.

"I am a regular at McBobs. It's close enough to work for me to lunch at this dive bar with a great menue. The corned beef is top notch, so you cant go wrong with a rueben or a any of the other menue items with corned beef including the Irish spring rolls. The spring ..."   [Read More]

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.

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).
