Great place for a fantastic Bloody Mary! It comes with a small slider on it :) Don't forget to ask for peanuts... watch them drop from the ceiling!

First off they have the best bloody mary ever. You get half of a bacon cheeseburger in your drink. Who does that!! They have an airplane that they dill up with peanuts and shoot it over to your table. Then you can write on the walls.

Went with the kids and they loved it Would recommend this to any family with children. The kids loved the peanut delivery! The staff, especially the waitress we had, was extremely friendly and accommodating. The burgers were great and reasonably priced. Wish we had one back home!

Stopped by to have lunch. It's got a neat vibe, staff was attentive and professional. The menu has good variety and some interesting combinations. We went there because they are voted best Bloody Mary in Madison but I thought their mix tasted off. Their garnish was good, piece of burger with melted cheese wrapped in bacon. If you wanted a...

Came here with a gift card to try out the place on a slow Sunday afternoon. Staff nice and competent. We each tried a daily special burger. Odd but good. (Brunch burger, for example, was a turkey burger on a craisen bread with bacon and a fried egg on top. I liked it!) Interesting that the place was intentionally designed... More

I found AJ Bombers by asking a local store clerk for a good place to eat with teens. I have to tell you that when we walked in I was a little bit hesitant based on all of the writing on the walls and the peanut shells, but after eating there, it is part of what makes this place unique... More

Best tasting burger I have ever had! I don't know what combination of meat make up the burger meat, but whatever it is, it tastes great. The fries were also top notch. Getting peanuts delivered via a bomb filled with peanuts was a blast! Definitely will be going back. We loved Bombers.

Quirky and fun atmosphere. Servers "bomb" your table with peanuts via pulley system, pretty cool. My 16yr old thought it was great that she was allowed to graffiti the table/booth. Certainly not diet friendly as the menu consists of fried appetizers and a WIDE variety of burgers that can be customized to your tastes.

We had a large group here and 5 kids and everyone loved it. The kids loved coloring on EVERYTHING, table, chairs, walls, any flat surface. They loved watching the bartender launch the peanut filler bombs. Sweet potato chips were amazing.

I love this place, the staff is friendly and the service is great. I I highly recommend the stuffed shroom if you are not in a burger mood. The peanut bombs are such fun to watch!
