Buddy-
The following weekend we are coming to Chicago.  How about we see you then?
 
How about I start a separate thread on that.
 

 
Sounds good.  We're wide open the 22nd-24th.  Too bad you can't stay a couple of extra days.  The Roadhouse Clan is meeting at abe_froeman's house on Tuesday the 26th for our annual Sweet & Sour Cabbage Borscht-athon.

Will you and Mariton be traveling with Jashim or Guest to either location?

I'm up for Saturday breakfast. Going to the Bucks game on Sunday at 2:30 so probably couldn't do late lunch.

The Benji's on N. Oakland, correct?  I'm fairly interested but probably won't know how good my chances are until later next week...if I'm there I'm there and if I'm not I'm not.
 
I'm guessing you might be heading straight up I-43 on your way to Green Bay, but if you have the time to detour west you can enjoy some Saturday night prime rib at one of the many supper clubs in Calumet County.  If you don't already have a GRB dining destination, that is.

Nice suggestion ScreamingChicken. But even if the LoveInsects already have dinner plans, Wally's Spot will make a perfect dinner #2.

Any Wisconsinites available for breakfast Saturday morning (we want to go early and they open at 8:00AM) or a late lunch Sunday afternoon?  The Kopp's forecast for that Sunday is Bailey's Irish Cream Coffee and O'Mint Chip.


Cliff,
 
You can count Bobbi and me (and possibly Guest) in for Sunday lunch. Any thoughts on your desired lunch stop? We may be able to tempt the ShyBear out of hibernation if we add a couple more stops before you arrive.

Re: Coming to Milwaukee 2019/03/09 11:38:12 (permalink)
Cliff,

 
I'm curious if you have ever enjoyed the classic Milwaukee lunch of Hot Ham on Hard Rolls on Sunday? It is not fancy or especially memorable, but has a definite Roadfood vibe to it, and is as Regionally AppropriateTM as you will ever get.
The concept is deceptively simple. After church on Sundays, people make a beeline to the nearest bakery or deli and order a pound or two of hot ham. In Milwaukee, most Sunday ham comes with free rolls. Usually "hard rolls" – a special sort of roll that's soft and tender on the inside yet hard and crispy on the outside. 
How the ham sandwiches were made once people got home varied. Some would spread the bread simply with butter, add ham, and eat. Others swear by a smear of mustard or relish. In some households, the "hot ham and rolls" tradition also included a dozen doughnuts.

Otherwise, I'll begin looking for a place for Beef on Weck and hot wings. 
 
Jim

I am also curious if this Milwaukee tradition was ever included in any of the Roadfood books or any Forum discussions. It is so central to the culture here, as much as Red Beans & Rice on Monday in New Orleans or Italian Sunday Gravy.
 
Hot Ham on Hard Rolls is to Milwaukee as Hotdish is to the Twin Cities.
 
Perhaps we try several locations and submit a review for the website.

Jim, So true, every store up here has the same deal on Sunday...including the rolls. Simple, but very good.

Saturday morning, we are leaning towards Benji's for hoppel poppel before heading north, if the weather cooperates.  We are planning on spending Saturday night in Green Bay.  We should be back in Milwaukee by mid-afternoon Sunday.

 
Some CheeseHeads in the know are telling me Benji's is crazy overrated and suggesting you'd be better off at Jo's Cafe.  I'm not a big breakfast guy, so couldn't say for sure.  But I trust this particular Cheesehead's judgment.

IIRC, we missed out last year on the Bailey's Irish Cream Coffee Custard.  If there are any Wisconsin Contingencies who still like this old Flatlander, maybe they'd pick up a pint or two and keep it in the deep freeze until the next time we see you.  Might be worth a bottle of BBQ Sauce for your trouble.

My Mid-West Window People are telling me Black Otter Super Club for prime rib!

Dinner #3.

No, too much backtracking.  Make Black Otter #2 with #3 somewhere in Green Bay, and if f we're going to send them west of the lake we could even make Wendt's #1.  Or Wendt's #2 and Black Otter #3.
 
Once BB becomes a more experienced Roadfooder I'll bet he starts to plan his trips himself.  The training wheels have to come off sometime.

Pro Tip: To avoid the heartache of a TTM-like event, you should pre-order your Queen Cut Prime Rib & lobster tail dinner for two at the Black Otter. Availability is limited, but they will hold your slice with an advance pre-paid order.
 
Dinner for Two - Upon Availability
Queen (1 bone, approx. 32 oz) Prime Rib & Cold Water Lobster Tails 10-12oz (total weight), includes 2 salad bars and 2 potatoes

Also at the Black Otter, the 160 oz. Extreme Cut Prime Rib.

This may be too much for a dainty eater like buffetbuster, but I know certain people who could down this in a heartbeat (I'm not naming names Ann Peeples).

A Hot Ham & Hard Roll Solution.

The MilwFoodlovers posted on Facebook that the acclaimed Iron Grate BBQ serves their own smoked ham on Canfora Bakery hard rolls on Sundays. We can share some ham on rolls and a Fine Guest BBQ platter or two just minutes from Mitchell Field. Regionally appropriate food combined with the inappropriate - a perfect balance.

I'm glad you asked this.  My assumption was Fox Point, since that is the only one I have been to, but if Shorewood is more convenient, then that would be fine, also. 
 
Well, we certainly hope you make it, but will understand if you don't.  BTW, if the weather towards Green Bay is bad, Madison is our back up plan.
 
Oh, and this may shock people, but I really don't care for prime rib.  Give me a brat, butter burger and cheese curds anytime.

Given that Sunday is St. Patrick's Day, I wouldn't be surprised if Iron Grate has some smoked corned beef on the menu as well.

Right now I subcontract it out to Spreadsheets of America, Inc. of Westmont, Illinois.  Hopefully, I will feel confident enough to do it on my own someday.

Thought people might be interested in where else we are eating on Saturday.  Here are a few places we have never been to before that we would like to visit.  Obviously, we could never hit them all:
 
Horse and Plow - Kohler
Bud Willman's Lunch - Manitowoc
Al's Hamburgers - Green Bay
Joe Rouer's Bar - Luxemburg
Nicolet Restaurant - Green Bay (breakfast on Sunday)
Kurtz's Pub - Two Rivers
 
And will be difficult to be in this area and not stop at old favorites including:
 
Gosse's - Sheboygan
Charcoal Inn - Sheboygan
Beernsten's Candy - Manitowoc
Chili John's - Green Bay
Mihm's - Menasha
Basil's II - Denmark
 
If you have opinions on these places or have other suggestions, please feel free...

We are thinking we will be back in the 414 approximately 2:00pm on Sunday.  One of the places we want to visit is Mr. Dye's Pies.
