McBob’s Pub & Grill

Cuisine: Celtic American

2215 E North Ave

By Brian West


In any discussion on sandwiches, I must bring up McBob’s. This often overlooked neighborhood Celtic pub on the very west end of Milwaukee (nearly Tosa) serves up what I will unashamedly call the hands-down best corned beef in Milwaukee. They serve it several ways (including a corned beef hash during weekend brunch), but it’s best showcased in their Reuben.

Now, most Reuben-lovers know this iconic deli sandwich as made up of corned beef, sauerkraut, swiss cheese and Russian (or Thousand Island) dressing on toasted rye bread. McBob’s however, as if reading my mind, decided the weak link is clearly the thousand island and said “fuck it, we’re doing spicy brown mustard!” And holy shit, is it a massive improvement.

That simple change, combined with the juiciest, best seasoned, thick-cut corned beef brisket in the city, puts their version of the classic Reuben at the very top of my list. And if you refer the first rule (theory, really) in my guide to sandwich perfection, the marble rye they serve it on just barely contains all the juicy, delicious contents, making it pretty much at the peak of the messiness to deliciousness graph. Next time you find yourself anywhere near 49th & North Ave, do yourself a favor and stop in at McBob’s.
