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

We were greeted by the owners immediately upon entering the restaurant and seated right away. There were 6 different sauces already on the table and when we asked for the other 2, they brought those as well. I wanted to sample all 8 sauces so ordered my 50/50 (half pulled pork/half brisket) sandwich "dry, no sauce on it. All of... More

We just discovered Bob's on our last trip to Dodgeville earlier this year. So happy we did! Great BBQ. We were there again this past weekend and decided to try some new menu items. My husband had the Piglet sandwich and I had the Rueben. Both excellent. I had mine with their terrific Lime Cilantro Cole Slaw, which is perfectly... More

While on a road trip we decided to check out Bob's BBQ and see if it was as good as people were saying. Arrived at 3:45 and the server would not let us have the special that started at 5- that started our service. My husband ordered the sampler which was expensive for what you go- $21.95. I ordered a... More

Everything really is delicious on the menu!! It there is a wait, keep name on the list. Definitely worth it! Meat is excellent. You choose to have with sauce or add at table. Original, Brewer, and habenaro were my favs. Homemade Mac, sweet potato Fiesta, and cornbread. AND they have Coke products!! Be sure to stop if you're in the... More
