Speed Queen Bar-B-Q

Milwaukee’s Best

In 1956, owners Betty Gillespie and Leonard Partee opened a barbecue joint with their family’s secret recipes, and after gaining a reputation for their sauce and quick service (hence the name Speed Queen), they moved to their current location and built the biggest barbecue pit in the city. I love the pulled pork sandwich. It has a great mix of the inside and outside meat of the pork shoulder, with just the right amount of crusty bark. The ribs and rib tips are pretty fantastic as well, but the real draw is the electric purple barbecue sauce.
