Ashley’s Barbeque

1501 W. Center St.

At Ashley’s Barbeque, takeout is the only option. But with specialties not found at bigger chain restaurants, and a family ownership history that extends back to the 1960s, it’s an option worth taking. Ribs and barbecued goat are among the favorites. The sauce is so good it should be sold in bottles. (J.L.R.) $-$$. CC: Not accepted. Handicap access. 372-7666

Famous Dave’s

5077 S. 27th St., 727-1940

2137 E. Moreland Blvd., Waukesha, (262) 522-3210

Full of country charm and décor, Famous Dave’s is best known for its barbecue dishes. Lighter menu items include a variety of salads and sandwiches, such as the barbecue chicken sandwich and the “Dave’s Favorite” burger, a half-pound of ground beef topped with jack cheese, bacon and barbecue sauce. Diners with a hefty appetite can indulge in a meal of rib tips or other hearty options such as chicken, ham, sausage, brisket or catfish. You just might want to round up a group of friends and enjoy the All-American barbecue feast. (K.N.) $-$$$. CC: All major. FB.

Speed Queen

1130 W. Walnut St.

Speed Queen is a longtime Milwaukee institution. Various beef, pork and turkey cuts come in sandwiches and full dinners, all with sides of coleslaw to cool off the tanginess (even the mild sauce packs a little wallop). For light eaters, portions are often hearty enough to suffice for two meals. Fried fish, baked beans and a few pie varieties are among the other options. (J.L.R.) $-$$. CC: Not accepted. 265-2900


Would white supremacists, neo-Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan pose the same threat they do now if a mainstream Republican were president instead of Donald Trump?
