Update: August 23, 2011 at 8:58am:
Sobelman’s Pub and Grill posted on its facebook page today that the Sobelman’s @ Marquette sold 470+ burgers on the first day.
August 22, 2011 at 10:58am: Today, Dave and Melanie Sobelman will expand their burger empire when they open the door at their third restaurant, Sobelman’s @ Marquette.
Dave and Melanie have a come a long way since they met back in 1993 and married in 1994. In 2001 the couple opened their first restaurant, Sobelmans Pub and Grill inside one of Milwaukee’s original Schlitz taverns at 1900 W. St. Paul Ave. Sobelman’s would become a Milwaukee staple for the place to go for Milwaukee’s best burger.
In 2009, Dave and Melanie opened their second reaturant, Sobelman’s Tall Grass Grill. This location focuses on healthier burgers made from 100% grass-fed beef.
Today, Sobelmans @ Marquette at 1601 W. Wells St. opens inside the space that housed Angelo’s Pizza Restaurant and Bar for over 50 years. Angelo’s had been a staple on the Marqutte campus since 1956. Angelo’s had a great run up until the end when it served its last customer in October, 2010.
According to a post from OnMilwaukee.com on October 11, 2010, Marquette had posted the following statement on its main Twitter account; ”Angelo’s owner (is) retiring and asked MU to purchase. Gyros (located in same building at 1607 W. Wells St.) will continue to lease. MU (is) working on (securing an) operator for pizza business.”
Sobelmans @ Marquette will be open Monday-Saturday from 11am-12am (food til 11pm) and Sunday from 11am-10pm. Dave Sobelman tells me that he plans to stay open til bar time Thursday-Saturday starting some time in Septemebr when they get their liquor license.
