Milwaukee's "Food Wars" are officially on

With a tweet this afternoon it was official, AJ Bombers will take on Sobelman's in an episode of the Travel Channel's "Food Wars."

Filming is scheduled for May 6, 7 and 8, according to the report on AJ Bombers' Twitter account.

AJ Bombers owner, Joe Sorge, tells OnMilwaukee.com that he's "most excited because the show helps bring Milwaukee to the forefront. I'm more excited about how great the show is for the city of Milwaukee."

Yeah, but, come on. It's a new burger taking on the established burger.

"There's a ton of pride," Sorge admits. "There's no question that I have been invited to participate by our chief competitor, and that's an honor."

For those of you wanting a "custard war" you are looking at this from a very shortsighted perspective. You have to remember, this is being filmed for a television show. Television is a medium that is designed to appeal to the eyes. A hamburger is much more visually appealing than frozen custard. For a burger war you can watch them cook the burger, you can see the toppings on the burger, and you can actually see the differences between the burgers. For a custard war, you are basically watching two people eat a bowl of ice cream. That is NOT appealing to the eyes. As a producer for a tv show I would not air a custard war.

I agree with what other people are saying about the custard. When I first heard about this I was kinda shocked because I didn't know there was a "war" going on between these two burger establishments. Now I've always heard people talking about what custard place is the best and I thought the show would focus on that because custard is more Wisconsin than burgers are.

35260 Good luck to both. In my opinion without the bun Soblemans is an ordinary burger, and USED to be the town favorite. AJ's burger meat is what will win this challange. Let's all remember how this show works... a blind taste test. Honestly, anyone who has tried both burgers could easyly tell them apart. Older does'nt mean better. Leons (My Favorite) and Gillie's have been around way longer than Kopp's. Who do you like better?

34540 I'm sorry, Stack'd does not even fall into the same category as Sobelman's, AJ Bombers, Solly's, Hooligans, Steny's, Point's East, or dare I even say Red Robin or Champps. Are you kidding!?! I've been there twice and can honestly say that place will not make it. I liked the idea, and tried it a couple of times, but it was horrible both times...service and food. They have two good places here...good luck to both...my pick is Sobelmans.

This war should not be between burgers. It should be over CUSTARD! Kopps vs. Giles vs. Leon's!
