Everything you read here that is negative is pretty much the experience I've had - 1. dry cigars true 2. Johnny , owner, annoying, loud, obnoxious, and rude to his customers when he's in the shop. He never stops talking to his employee, but ignores all of his customers. 3. Fraud - I can def understand the users who think he selling fraudulent cigars - one of his workers did tell me he's misrepresenting a lot of cigars. Look at the actual product. The bands and product don't match up. 4. He writes all of the 5 star reviews here - notice all of those 5 star reviews sound the same, or like an "AD" that's b/c Johnny writes them. Go to his facebook page for famous - he "likes" his own posts! LOL Def will be going to Uhle's and using the internet for cigar purchases in the future. His cigars and "humidor" on Brady St. are a glorified closet. What a joke. AND he raises the prices a $1/cigar every year. RIP-OFF.
u have the Herbal Incience in ur smoke shop Like a Wicked X, Happy Hour or something??? The Legal Buds????
Mecca of all cigars shops – This place is amazing, i cant belive how many selections of cigars there are. Waliking into there humidor was like walking into paradise. it was one of the greatest stores ibe ever been in everything was sterile and beutiful . the men who work there are better than the ritz carltin bellhops combined with space marines. i thought i was getting the ususal treatment until one of the guys got down on his knees and started sucking my shaft. i was grateful but wanted to continue to shop when i asked him to stop he simply pulled out a cart and wheeled himself around whole sucking me off the whole time it was quite an impressive feet. i couldnt find what i was looking for and asked the manager to help me. he simply turned around and walked into the back of the store. 2 seconds later ROCKY PATEL himself walks out of the back room and makes me a cigar and signs it. it truly was the greatest day of my life and i cant recommend it highly enough.
Famous Smokeshop is for the true connoiseur ! – Lots of fine name-brand cigars at cheap prices, varied selection, in a fun warm modern and clean environment. Easy access, great hours-I give Famous Smokeshop a thumbs-up-definitely got with the program !! Amust-stop premium cigar shop !!
Arturo Fuente, Ashton, Isabela Miami, Tatuaje, CAO, and many more !!
Fishy is fishy but FRAUD IS FRAUD – I'll be frank. I'd rather by swisher sweets from the gas station than anything at this place. The guy who owns it is completely obnoxious and was obviously coked-up out of his mind on the few ocasions I was there. He tried to sell me knock-off Cohibas, and then dropped a line of bullshi+ about pre-embargo Cuban cigars on me. The most recent time he tried to sell me Davidoff seconds. Fair enough I thought. I imagine the cigar would have tasted exponentially had I dipped it in toilet bowl cleaner. Coincidentally I called a friend of mine from college who owns a cigar shop in Champagne Illinois. Apparently, Davidoff does not produce or distribute "Seconds" for the consumer market. My advice to the little guy who wears the hat all the time is this:
1. Sell your store on Brady street to the people who own JR. They run a better operation.
2. Stop false advertising. Even if you are just exaggerating, you are still breaking the law.
3. Hire people who know what they are talking about. (You should probably catch up on your reading too.)
4. Get a humidor that works. Every cigar I've smoked from there has fallen apart.
5. Cater to your market. Cigars are a luxury item. Your store looks like a head shop. Get with the program.
Not So Solid – Went in the other day excited to grab a cigar with my buddy. The prices are way to high. The staff didnt know anything about cigars and i would 80% gaurantee that his smoke of choice needs no ageing (ie....weed)
Will not be stopping in there again
just my two cents. Check it out for yourself
Who does this guy think he is? – If you pay close attention to all the posts, you might notice several of the earlier posts all sound like they are written from different user experiences by different people. You will also notice they have poor ratings. Then you will also notice several 5 star reviews that all sound like commercials written by the same......owner perhaps? The best part is that the guy is trying to market this place like some sort of hip south beach hang out that happens to sell cigars. Does this guy realize he is in SE Wisconsin? Cheese curds. Local breweries. Friday fish frys'. C'mon buddy. Get with it. Just run a legitimate cigar shop and lose the gimmicks. No one cares if an NBA has been and some "cigar girls" work there.
We want fresh, authentic, fair priced cigars sold by knowedgeable employees in a sanitary environment.
You failed on all accounts during my visit last month and apparently others agree. And stop posing on this site, your ability to come off as different people has really flopped. Its bad.
In conclusion, remember, this isn't Miami. Its Milwaukee. Now do your job.
