If you are traveling through Wisconsin. This is a very Good place to eat and some of the best BBQ anywhere around to eat BBQ. and has great service you might have a little wait because they are really busy around supper time. But it is worth the wait. We stop every time we travel through Wisconsin.

This restaurant is a great place for friends and family to gather. You are greeted at the door by a friendly staff who seats you promptly. The wait staff is very nice and our order was taken right away. Anything with meat that you order here will be delicious. The Asian chicken salad is okay. The burger is awesome. The... More

We were looking for a decent restaurant to stop at on our way through southern wisconsin. Neither of us had been to dodgeville before since it's a little off the highway. Bob's was a gem. It had great waitstaff, a welcoming atmosphere and amazing food. We both had the brisket and can't wait to go back. It's about an hour... More

We got seated right away (though they were quite busy, esp for a weeknight). Our server was good---on top of things but not "in your face", friendly but not overly chatty. The food was excellent. I had the Wednesday night special---"burnt ends" and it was fantastic. The only negative I can think of is it's a very loud environment. I... More

Really liked the dry rub chicken & ribs. We were offered 8 different types of BBQ sauce and could use as much or as little as we wanted. I liked them all. Nice size portion, good choice of sides and great service.

The deep fried cheese curds are the BEST! The rest of the food is average. Ask for table, not a booth...they are uncomfortable. Have been there twice, the staff is not particularly friendly, nor helpful. Drink refill requests are not completed. If you get the meat without the sauce it does give you an opportunity to sample them. While none... More

Went for a noon lunch. Food is excellent. Servers are friendly. It is probably the best restaurant in Dodgeville. Noon is a good time to go to avoid the wait. Prices are fair for the quality and atmospheric look.

We have enjoyed meals here several times and it just never disappoints us. The riblets are by far my favorite but they can not seem to do anything bad and make sure you take home some BBQ Sauce as well. For dessert make sure to get the donut holes they are just like grandma use to make.

We stopped on our way home after our son recommended this restaurant. It was so good! We received our food very fast and it was so delicious! The BBQ sauces on the table was really nice so that we could try all the different kinds. The ribs and chicken almost melted in your mouth. The waitress was very friendly. We... More

Stopped here for lunch on a Friday and service was speedy fast! The food was so good and BBQ sauces were all great. There was a good variety of BBQ flavors. Restaurant had a sports vibe with TVs and was very clean. Definitely will go back if in the area. I feel like they need to be in a bigger... More
