If you're in the Aurora/Oswego area & in the mood for a great burger, you've got to try this place. 10oz. burgers with Fries, great appetizers, and $1 mini-burgers, salads, and chili on Tuesdays

Delighted with new owners. They are a hard working family that has brightened up and cleaned up Poor Boys Pub. They make fresh burgers daily along with salads and Chili. The quality and attention to detail has never been better. I disagree with previous post as it seems to be a lazy disgruntled employee that they recently had to be let go.As to the gay comment please consider the source. New owners are great because they interact with customers and are loved by many that is why business is booming.

Went there for the first time on a Tuesday and I was very surprised at the deals and quality of food and service. They serve an authetic beef taco for a $1 and also have 1.75 pints. It was interesting that they also have the coldest beer anywhere.Supposedly its a unique system that pours Coors Light at below freezing and was it good.
I talked to the server and was amazed to hear r that business is booming do to ownership and menu change.
The place is friendly and reasonable also very family friendly. I will make it my new hangout for dinner and sporting events.

Poor Boys Pub has the best burgers and coldest beer anywhere.
They make their burgers fresh daily using fresh ground chuck.
They were voted best burger in fox valley area. They also have a unique Coors dispensing system that pours beer at below freezing.
I make a special trip to have the burgers and beer. They are very nice people and always make us feel welcome.
They offer daily soup and sandwich specials and have the best giant quesadillas that I have ever tasted.

Karaoke and D/J Wednesday- Saturday nights.

If you want a good drink special I would go to any bar around Montgomery but Poorboys. They keep raising their prices for the same old food and drinks. The bartenders may be good looking but are rude and it takes too long to get a drink.
Also this place if filled with kids, all the time! I leave my kids at home for a reason. I dont want to come to a bar so I can drink with other people's kids around. This should be illegal! I should not have to watch my mouth in a bar setting because there are children present.
Ha ha this post makes me laugh. I have been going to poor boys for the past two months, I frequent for lunch and for their bands. This post could not be further from the truth.

We live only 2 miles away from poor boys, but proximity is not the only reason we go there. The food is consistently excellent, it's reasonably priced considering the quality of food that you get, and the ambiance is cozy. You can either dress up or wear jeans & sneakers - there is no pretension there!

My husband & I always order the mini burgers for our appetizer. Typically, I order the steak quesadilla, which is heaven in your mouth! My husband gets the buffalo chicken sandwich.

If you go during peak dinner hours (I'd say 6-9p.m.), its always a good time
awesome place

A group of 4 of us went to dinner there and had a great time. The "Contemporary Comfort Food" is exactly what you will get. GET THE Burgers! Service was very good. They didn't rush us. This is a good date night place

The atmosphere is set in an older building that has been nicely remodeled. There is a bar with about 25 seats.

Poor Boy's Pub has never disappointed and I've been going there for years. This place has the best bar food around, whether it's the hot wing deal, homemade soups, or daily specials. The owner is very personable and the bartenders are friendly. They pull in a good crowd for open mic night and bands on the weekends. I enjoy going here because they have a family friendly atmosphere. Much to like about this place...wish more bars had the quality food, drinks, and entertainment that Poor Boy's Pub has.

Poor Boys Pub is the best local place around.I go there with my family weekly and always have a great time. Very reasonable prices and they are always running specials so they always keep you coming back.

I like this place. GREAT burgers, reasonably priced drinks and personable staff. Enough TVs to catch most sporting events (including Curling) and some pretty nice eye candy serving up our orders (can you say sisters? Babs and Suzie Q!) Not too dark, not too bright, not too pushy....Sheesh, I feel like GoldiLocks...out of 3 pubs in the area, this one is just right...

I have been to poor boys many times and I have been there many different times of the day and night. I have never had a bad thing there. poorboy sandwich, very good, burgers, very good. The staff is always great, friendly, very organized, and on top of it all.
Karoke, not my thing but I went a few time and had a blast. Very family friendly, but still a tavern. Good beer selection and food.

Hello, I am a proud costumer of Poor Boys Montgomery. The review posted before me with the poor rating is totally a surprise to me because first of all the owner's family is a joy to be around and the food is exceptionally out of this world. I highly recommend this atmosphere for anyone who is in the market of purchasing a nice refreshing cold beer with a delightful burger. Poor boys is the place to be on a Sunday with the mighty Bears. The costumers themselves make the entire essence of the bar feel like a place of compassion and cheerfulness. Thank you Poor Boys family for making this establishment what it is today.
