A friend and I stopped here for lunch as we had heard good things. The waitress, who was a real good soul, recommended that we try the Highlander sandwich which was a burger with corned beef on top of it. That may sound odd, but...More

In a town that has Jake's, it's difficult to recommend anywhere else for corned beef, but McBob's is definitely worth a visit. The corned beef is stellar and McBob's is a great neighborhood bar to boot. Especially convenient for anyone going to a Brewers game...More

Having heard about McBob's on Around the Corner with John McGivern, and loving reuben sandwiches, we decided it was worth the drive from Racine. It was absolutely worth the drive! A small, local pub located on North Ave between 49th & 50th, you have to...More

If you can get past the urinal stench that greets you at the door, good luck. Not the place for me, how disgusting..

The Reuben here is incredible. Get it on the marble rye. It is a perfect balance of too much meat (a little usually falls out) and the right amount of cheese, mustard and kraut. Don't change anything about it, just get it as is. The...More

I heard on the radio about McBob's having a good fish fry so we thought we would check them out. The atmosphere is very laid back and fun your typical pub and grill setting. We were greated and seated immediately by what I am assuming...More
