There’s a lot of passion over burgers in Milwaukee, so I wanted to share a new review of AJ Bombers. Hat tip to Milwaukee Magazine’s Ann Christensen and others for pointing out this SeriousEats.com post.
Titled "Milwaukee: What’s All the Hype About at AJ Bombers?" it’s a lengthy feature by Lacey Muszynski, a local writer and editor (Muszynski worked for mke, the Journal Communications weekly that folded several years ago) who is employed by the site, as well as a local publisher of industrial magazines.
Muszynski takes Bombers to task calling out its "aggressive marketing," "hype and cliquey Internet following" and "lacking" signature burgers.
We wrote the very first story about AJ Bombers, and I do enjoy their burgers and have put it in writing. For the record, AJ Bombers has never been a paid advertiser with OnMilwaukee.com, though its owner, Joe Sorge, has advertised his other restaurants in the past.
I’ll let you read and react to this latest review. Have fun.
A life-long and passionate community leader and Milwaukeean, Jeff Sherman is a co-founder of OnMilwaukee.
He grew up in Wauwatosa and graduated from Marquette University, as a Warrior. He holds an MBA from Cardinal Stritch University, and is the founding president of Young Professionals of Milwaukee (YPM)/Fuel Milwaukee.
Early in his career, Sherman was one of youngest members of the Greater Milwaukee Committee, and currently is involved in numerous civic and community groups - including board positions at The Wisconsin Center District, Wisconsin Club and Marcus Center for the Performing Arts. He's honored to have been named to The Business Journal's "30 under 30" and Milwaukee Magazine's "35 under 35" lists.
He owns a condo in Downtown and lives in greater Milwaukee with his wife Stephanie, his son, Jake, and daughter Pierce. He's a political, music, sports and news junkie and thinks, for what it's worth, that all new movies should be released in theaters, on demand, online and on DVD simultaneously.
He also thinks you should read OnMilwaukee each and every day.
