Exciting news today from the Third Ward. Pat’s Rib Place, which has operated a BBQ restaurant in Waukesha (151 E Sunset Dr.) since 2009, is opening a second location, inside Milwaukee Public Market (400 N. Water St.). The location is expected to open sometime this summer.
Owners Alisha and Ty Hayes named the restaurant, known for meats smoked daily and homemade sauces, after Alisha’s mother, Pat. The menu will include ribs, chicken wings, beef brisket, pulled pork, smoked pastrami, corned beef and sides such as cornbread, smoked baked beans and homemade potato salad.
