LETTERS: Ashley’s brings best BBQ north of Chicago to Port Washington

To Ozaukee Press:

Growing up in Milwaukee, I would from time to time make a stop at Ashley’s to indulge in what I believed to be the finest ribs north of Chicago.

I was never disappointed.

When I heard that Ashley’s was going to open in the location where the Port Hotel restaurant once was, I was more than thrilled.

My wife and I made the short walk to Ashley’s soon after they opened their doors.

I have to admit that I was worried the food might have changed after all these years.

Needless to say, my worries were for naught.

The ribs were as great as I remember.

Port is very fortunate to have Ashley’s.

If you are expecting the Port Hotel restaurant, you won’t find it here.

Ashley’s is a casual, well run place with the best BBQ this side of Chicago.
