Update: Enjoy half-price burgers at Sobelmans Tuesday

Update April 15, 2014: 9:09am: Unfortunately the Brewers lost to the Cardinals 4-0 Monday night, snapping a nine-game winning streak. The good news is Sobelmans will sell its burgers (yes, including double and triple Sobelmans) for half-price Tuesday, April 15 at its location at 1900 W St Paul Ave. Half price discount applies to dine in only orders.

If the Milwaukee Brewers win tonight at Miller Park against the St. Louis Cardinals, this will be the 10th straight win for the Brew Crew.

On March 28th, Sobelmans Pub and Grill announced if the Brewers win 10 in a row, Sobelman’s would give out free burgers on Tuesday, April 15 from open (11am) until close.  The free burgers are single-patty cheeseburgers, and are available for dine-in only.

So tune into the game tonight at 7:10pm to see if you’ll be eating for free tomorrow.

PS: If the Brewers sweep the Cardinals Wednesday night this would be the Brewers 12th straight  which means George Webbs will be giving away free burgers as well.

Update: The Philly Way is now open at 1330 E. Brady Street. The new location hours are Mon – Wed: 11am to 10pm, Thurs – Sat: 11am to 3am, and Sun: Noon to 9pm. The resaturant phone number is (414) 763-8875.

The Philly Way, a popular cheese steak shop in Walker’s Point will open a new restaurant on Brady Street in May, 2012.

According to its Facebook page, the new location will be located about one block west of Farwell St. on the north side of Brady, inside the former “Miss Groove” clothing store.

This would have been Philly way #4  if all of the locations remained open today.

Owner Dave London closed his Cudahy location in August, 2011 after being open for less than a year. And unfortunately, Mr. London had the same luck with a Downtown locale at 222 W. Wells.  The Wells Street location closed in late-2009.

The Philly Way’s orignal location in Walkers Point remains strong is doing great business.

Ward’s House of Prime’s 160 oz cut featured on Travel Channel show

The contestants prepare for the 160 oz prime rib challenge at Ward's.

Downtown Milwaukee’s very own Ward’s House of Prime, 540 E. Mason Street, will be featured on a special episode entitled, “Big Beef Paradise” on the Travel Channel this Wednesday at 8 p.m. CST.

According to producers, the food show will feature the best places in the country to get big slices of beef, and it will include Ward’s chefs cooking up delicious cuts of choice beef, an interview with owner Brian Ward, and footage from a Prime Rib Eating Contest Ward’s recently hosted. The contest included 3 contestants trying to eat a humongous 160 oz (yes, 10 pounds) cut of prime rib in less than an hour.

The first contestant ever to set a Prime Rib record at Ward's was Dane Kasper.

In early 2010 Dane Kasper decided he wanted to eat 40 ounces of Prime Rib. At the time this size cut of meat was not offered on Ward’s  menu so  Executive Chef Bill Baumann happily carved the gigantic slab of meat for Dane, and the rest is, well, history. Dane conquered the 40 ounces and thus, “The Baby Dane” was born.  Dane would later return to take down “The Great Dane,” 106 ounces of  cooked to perfection Prime Rib to earn another spot of Ward’s menu and its “Wall of Fame.”

Ward’s  “Wall of Fame” currently pays tribute to 9 previous customers who have conquered eating enormous portions of prime rib.  Their caricatures are on the restaurant’s wall and their names are also featured on the Ward’s  prime rib menu. The following prices were accurate at the time this blog was posted and prices are subject to change without notice.

  • 40 oz –The Baby Dane $63
  • 64 oz – The Big Bugalski $88
  • 72 oz – The Amazing Alyssa DiGilio $99
  • 88 oz – The Mighty Lind $111
  • 96 oz – The Legendary Halaka $122
  • 106 oz – The Great Dane $133
  • 125 oz – The Holy Schmit $155
  • 160 oz – Al-Mighty Halaka $218
  • 168 oz – Awesomefat – The Michael Litman Experience $230

So, did anyone finish the 10 pounds of meat?

We can tell you that one person did conquer the massive cut in just 31 minutes and that one person decided to eat an additional 8 ounces of meat beyond the contest requirements to earn the rights to be included in the restaurant’s Wall of Fame.

The “Big Beef Paradise” episode is also scheduled to air at 11 p.m. on December 21 and at 6 p.m. on December 25 (Christmas Day).

Ward’s House of Prime
540 E. Mason Street
Milwaukee, WI 53202
(414) 223-0135
Ward’s House of Prime is open Monday – Friday for lunch from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. and for dinner Monday – Saturday from 5 p.m. – 10 pm. Their bar is open from 4 p.m. – 1 a.m. Monday – Saturday.
