My husband had a taste for fried chicken. I typed in the best fried chicken in our area and up came TomKen. We never heard of it so we thought we would give it a try. TomKen is in the city of West Allis. There is street parking so you might be walking a block or two. Well it is... More

I like in MKE and have tried wings all over town (and all over the country)and these are the best by a long shot. First they are large and meaty. More importantly they have a list of creative sauces. My favorite is buffalo sings the blues. If you are in Milwaukee and love wings you need to make your way... More

Love the wings at Tomkens. Been there the last two Fridays. They take a while to cook, a pitcher of Spotted Cow helps. 5 star wings.

We have lived close and drive past it many times a week, finally decided to try it. The decor is Packers with an old West Allis Western Days banner displayed. We started with three large mozzerella sticks with Parmesan cheese dusted on top. The "friendly fried chicken" was our choice. It was done nicely with a light batter and moist... More

This is a small bar that has the best wings, but you must get there early or you will be waiting. the only thing I would change is the wait staff standing in front smoking. I always watch to see If they wash their hands. That's kind of gross

Went here because I read about it on the internet. I had the chicken dinner. Great bargain. 4 huge pieces of perfect chicken, fries and cole slaw for 9 bucks. Excellent. Great breading, and juicy chicken. Very fresh chicken. My partner had wings as it was Wings night. 0.50 a wing. He had 6 and they were great as well.... More

We came for the wings. We were not disappointed. Great flavor and selection of sauces. Thursday was wing night and we lucked out with an awesome waitress.

Believe the hype-the chicken wings and chicken dinners here are delicious! Small neighborhood bar in West Allis across from State Fair park that serves some of the best chicken in town. The bar looks kind of like a dive from the outside but is nice and big inside with a decent amount of sports memorabilia. It's kind of like a... More

This past week I tried two different kinds of wings on two visits- grilled with sauce on the side and the traditional with sauce. Both were very good. Brad, the bartender, said I should try the traditionally prepared wings with the sauce on the side. I cannot wait until my next visit. By the way, Brad and the other staff... More

Tomken`s isn`t a fancy place, but rather a nice neighborhood bar that serves great Fried Chicken. They have other items as well, but the chicken is so good, I don`t dare order anything else!
