On a mission to find Milwaukee's Best Bloody Mary

You say tomato, I say Bloody Mary.

Fuzzy’s Pub & Grill | Waukesha, Wisconsin

I was drawn to “Fuzzy’s on Main” due to how close it is to my house.  If I really felt the need, I could walk there.  Or, rather, walk home after a few, if you know what I mean and I think you do!  A couple friends referred Fuzzy’s because of it’s amazing breakfast (they were right).  After researching it on the ol’ Google Machine, I figured it’d be worth a shot.

We found Fuzzy’s just fine.  I’m going to be honest though, the outside of the building was a bit sketchy.  It looks like a old gas station maybe.  The parking lot was small, but then again, so is Fuzzy’s. It’s a very typical dive bar filled with Wisconsin paraphernalia.  The inside is pretty nice though.  Fuzzy’s also does not have a website (if I’m wrong, someone out there correct me), which turned me off a bit.  Today, the web can be your #1 form of advertising.  Luckily for them, websites like Yelp! and UrbanSpoon exist- and seem to like the place quite a bit!

We got there around 11 AM, and got a seat right at the bar.  As you’ll know from previous posts, I’m a huge customer service fan.  Fuzzy’s blew me away on their friendliness.  The bartender (I didn’t catch her name) went over and beyond to welcome us, let us know about the menu and made us feel welcome.  Bonus.

I ordered a bloody mary, and it was pretty cool to get to watch her make it.  They kept the mix in a pitcher then personalized it from there.

Here’s my review:

Spice: The bartender asked if I’d like it spicy, and of course I said yes so she added quite a bit of tabasco sauce.  It was spicy, but not too much.  She also shock pepper and celery salt.  I wasn’t particularly blown away by the mix, but it was homemade so I have to give them an A for effort.

Chaser: There was not a chaser offered with this Bloody.

Garnish:  The bartender had a whole pitcher of garnish sticks ready to just drop in the bloody.  On it was a pickle, pepperoncini pepper, mushroom and olive.  What I also thought was interesting was: before the bartender poured the mix into the glass, she squeezed a lemon and dropped it onto the ice.  I loved the pepperoncini!  I eat those with a lot of meals… I just like the extra spice!

Size: Typical 16 oz

Buzz: The buzz from one Fuzzy’s Bloody was so-so.  As I was able to watch the bartender make it, I knew she put in about one shot of rail vodka.

Cost: $7.00

I will definitely return to Fuzzy’s on Main.  I’m not sure if I would order the bloody mary again, but their breakfast was ah-maz-ing; I repeat: amazing.  I had pecan french toast and my other half had an omelet.  We were both stuffed but kept eating because it was just so good.  The customer service was also outstanding.  I highly recommend it if you’re in the downtown Waukesha area.
