from the back of a storefront in the Old Hay Market on 5th &
Vliet, Leonard Partee and I took the family recipe for BBQ and
Secret Sauce and set-up shop right next to Milwaukee's undisputed
champion of BBQ "Black King."
the beginning, Leonard and I survived on the overflow from Black
King. Word of our excellent BBQ, Secret Sauce, and Speedee service
quickly spread and I was dubbed "The Speed Queen."
Soon we had all the business we could handle and Black King
was moving away.
The Hay Market we moved to 12th & Vine and in 1975 we settled
on the corner of 12th & Walnut where today with my three
children, I still run the family business, proudly producing
Milwaukee's finest barbecued meats using the largest BBQ pit
in the city and our trademark secret sauces.
you can taste the Speed Queen experience with friends and family
in the comfort of your own backyard. Whether you enjoy "Man,
That's Hot" or "On the Mild Side," use my sauces
for anything that you can put on the grill. Thank you, Enjoy,
and God Bless.
