Jake's in Milwaukee

I have a trip planned to Milwaukee and I am wondering if Jake's at 17th and North is still going strong? I used to love the corned beef.

    A great, bit, fat yes. (As of three weeks ago).

      I had good fortune to be able to eat at Jake's again this past weekend. I thought fellow corned beef loving hounds would appreciate a photo. Enjoy!

        We went about a year ago and the sandwiches were terrific. Highly recommended.

          I'm a little sad because I used to live in Milwaukee and never heard of it. Very very sad.

            It is sad. I've noticed your love of the reuben at Cecil's. If you like Cecil's, you would be blown away by Jake's.
