Behind the Name: According to the restaurant's lore, the steak house got its name from an alarm clock that would ring every day at 5 p.m., alerting customers that it was time for a free drink.



While You’re in the Neighborhood

Chubby's Cheesesteaks celebrates one of America's best-loved regional dishes with a menu full of Philly-style cheesesteak sandwiches that Chubby's chefs believe to be the best cheesesteaks west of Philadelphia. They chop up morsels of steak to order for creations ranging from a pizza cheesesteak with marinara and mozzarella to the classic Philly with peppers and Cheez Whiz, a cheese spread that could only be more American if it came with free baseball in every jar. In addition to hand-held feasts of warm, toasty rolls and succulent beef, cooks whip up chicken cheesesteaks, Italian beef sandwiches, fried fish dinners, gyros, burritos, and jumbo chili dogs.

Jackson Grill: A User's Guide

Acclaimed Supper Club | Steaks and Seafood | Massive Portions | Brandy Old-Fashioned Cocktails | Retro Vibe

Sample Menu

  • Appetizer: hand-cut duck-fat fries served with housemade aioli
  • Entree: 24-ounce Black Angus bone-in rib eye with gorgonzola butter
  • Side: garlic mashed potatoes
  • Cocktail: brandy old-fashioned sour

    The Vibe: If one phrase best sums up Jackson Grill, it's "old fashioned." This descriptor applies equally to the decor of candlelit white linens and to the way the same family has run the establishment for decades. It's also the name of one of Wisconsin's most beloved cocktails, which the restaurant's bartenders strive to perfect.



    Inside Tips

    • All of Jackson Grill's dinners come with housemade soup. If you get the opportunity, select the crab bisque, which has received praise from both Third Coast Daily and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
    • Arrive hungry. In addition to soup, each dinner also comes with salad, a breadbasket, and a complimentary bowl of olives. The entrees are also so big that you "might have to call in reinforcements for desserts," according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

      While You're Waiting

      • Check out the collection of framed signatures from local celebrities and venerated Wisconsin athletes in the foyer. A few of these famous folks are regulars, so try not to kiss the autographs in case they see you.
      • Try to spot Chef Jackson. He's been known to make the rounds in the dining room, chatting with guests and asking how their nights are going.

As one of the first churrascarias in the United States, Rodizio Grill acquainted Americans with extraordinary dining traditions from Brazil, where founder Ivan Utrera was born. One such custom was making desserts of flan and chocolate cake from scratch. Another was flame-grilling meats on a rotisserie while applying a delectable mix of seasonings and sauces. But most impressive was the style in which the meats were served?skewered on three-foot spikes, carried to each table, and thinly carved by the attending gaucho.

That unique culinary experience has made Rodizio Grill a destination for adventurous?or merely hungry?diners since its first location opened in 1995. Guests inform their waiter of how well they'd like their meat cooked, then enjoy unlimited servings of more than one dozen proteins, including steak, chicken, pork, and fish. Picanha, or top sirloin, remains a crowd favorite, but the menu also features Brazilian sausages, bacon-wrapped turkey breast, and even grilled chicken hearts. The full Rodizio dinner provides access to all of these savory options, as well as the gourmet salad bar stocked with sides such as fresh salads, vegetables, black bean stew, and whipped potatoes. And, for those seeking sweeter slices, glazed and grilled pineapple arrives pinned upon the sword with which it was justly slain.
