    This review is a hard one to write. I was so disappointed that it wasn't actually a TV shop to go into and you have to find the secret door. There is nothing secret or exciting about going in. When we came in, there was some confusion about the table (even though I had a reservation) and there was this awkward silence where I had to question what was happening. Once in, we ordered milk shakes.. and that was THEE only part of our meal that was good. I ordered french toast with a side of bacon and eggs and my friend ordered the scrambler. We both agreed the food was really not great. My French Toast was burned on one side, the bacon was cooked in vegetable oil and I literally gagged when I ate it and the eggs were fine but no flavor. My friend said she didn't really love her meal either and tried the bacon and agreed it was cooked in vegetable oil. It was LITERALLY dripping in oil. This place could be soooo cool and neat and I feel like they really dropped the ball. I would only recommend Don's TV & Repair for their milk shakes because they are so big and over the top. But that is pretty much it!

    We had such a great time, and the boys (12 and 14) LOVED the cool, hip vibe, and guessing the password- 12 yr old guessed it fast! The fish fry and burgers were so delicious, and the cheese curds were fresh and hot, packed with delicious garlicy flavor, soooo good. Most importantly, our server Danny was OUTSTANDING- he made the whole experience super memorable bringing surprise flavor shakes to delight the kiddos, Danny made sure we were well taken care of. We will be back very soon!!

    OK, I was skeptical about the place, but I'm also adventurous, so, I took a gamble. It definitely paid off. Don's is a fun place with a very unique ambiance. The food is basic (burgers and sandwiches) and the boozy shakes are definitely boozy. If you're up for a relaxing place to grab a bite, and are open to a unique atmosphere, check out Don's.

Food all tasted great! It is pretty pricey, but worth every penny! We will definitely be back with their dad soon!

    This was not for me. I took my teenage son there to celebrate the end of his school year. I was expecting a fun kitschy 80s experience. I have pretty high standards for food, but I was not expecting a lot based on other reviews. First off they stuck us at a tiny table in the way back. The Ambiance was sort of lackluster and everything seemed dirty and dingy. We ordered burgers fries and milkshakes. It was 99-cent Burger night. Regardless I still spent over $30 for the two of us. I certainly wouldn't pay full price to eat here. The milkshake was good but topped with Cool Whip, which is disgusting. The fries were okay. The burger was inedible. Would not recommend.

    Hi ErikaJ, thank you for choosing to join us and celebrate at Don's. We are sorry you did not enjoy your experience with us for 99¢ burger night and the overall vibe here at Don's. We do appreciate your feedback and wish you and your son the best and a congratulations on another year completed in high school! We do hope you would give us another shot, but again appreciate you coming in. Cheers, The TV Repair Team at Don's

    Really fun out of the box place full of 90s nostalgia! Daughter did not like the plain pancakes they have a lemon flavor to them, but I split my burger with her and she thought that was delicious. The fish fry was surprisingly good. They add an 18% service fee our waiter was great and told us about that before we paid but still doesn’t sit right with me. Either up the price of the food so you can pay more to employees or let me tip what I feel is fair. Any way left a not great impression right at the end, but it was a fun place.

    Server was great, food meh, nothing great about it. Hot Chix Sammie was burnt on one side. Burger had so much grease it wouldn't stay on the grease soaked bun. Fruity Pebbles pancakes were good but the bottom one was not cooked through and was very doughy.. Skeletor Sling was ok, but was not much in the glass four slurps from my straw it was gone. Thank goodness it had ice all the way to the top... Was a cool experience I guess.. glad we tried it. Cool way to get in.. . Maybe it was an off night. I will say the Shakes were worth it!! They were outstanding!!

    This place was an absolute delight! It did take us a bit longer than expected to be seated even with a reservation, but the gal at the front was very apologetic and gave us plenty of quarters to entertain ourselves with pinball while waiting. Once we got in, it was more than worth the wait. Everything was so fun, interesting things to look at everywhere, milkshakes were works of art, burger was really yummy- and prices more than reasonable. My friends had a blast.

    We met our two college kids at Don’s and it was every bit as good as the last time! No delay in seating (we had reservations), cocktails and shakes were on point, and the food (pancakes, burrito (new), biscuit and gravy (with new chorizo gravy) and double cheese burger and fries was absolutely fantastic. Our server was the same sweet lady we had last time and she remembered our last order!!!! The Best there is in MKE!!!!!

    I heard about this place on the radio, was intrigued by the “speak-easy” theme and invited another couple to surprise them. Food was good, burgers were fabulous. We were not pleased when the server brought our check and said, “There’s an 18% surcharge that is automatically charged to your bill and that is shared among all employees. If you want to tip me personally, that would be at your discretion”. I’m sure there was some small print in menu about it. The reason was “pandemic”. I was miffed about it, raising our bill $25 and then pleading for more. I am a generous tipper, but since I didn’t know the breakdown of the sharing, additional was minimal. I will not return nor will I recommend going. That kind of add-on is expected with large parties. Sad. I think places want return customers.
