IT'S NICE TO MEAT US!
In Texas, they do not believe in putting any type of sauce on their ribs!
You should enjoy the quality of the meat and not mask it with BBQ sauce.
There is Nothing like it in Milwaukee.
True Silver Spur Famous Texas Style St. Louis Ribs and Beef Brisket
That is why The Silver Spur serves warm BBQ sauce on the side that allows our guests to add it to their meat based on your personal preference rather than drenching the meat with sauce. The Silver Spur has nothing to hide just delicious quality meat.
At The Silver Spur, the cowboy attitude flows as freely as the BBQ sauce. We smoke all our own meats, so that smell you're smelling, yeah, that's authenticity. Pull up a chair, put your elbows on the table, enjoy our all-star staff, and get ready to dig into some bona fide Wisconsin Suburb-B-Que.
BBQ perfection takes time
The Silver Spur was built in 1855 by Frank Reusch as a stagecoach stop on the historic Watertown Plank Road and also housed a blacksmith and livery stable. Two years later, a mercantile was added and it became the first post office in Elm Grove. Known as the Elm Grove Hotel, rooms were rented upstairs and horses were stabled on the basement level. The Elm Grove Hotel remained in the Reusch family, operating as Reusch's Tavern in the fifties, until it was sold in 1963 and became the Elm Grove Inn.
The building is the second oldest restaurant in the State of Wisconsin, and the tradition continues.
