All of their BBQ's are delicious! My favorite is pork served on potato wedges. Their Friday fish fry is excellent also.

The food and service are above average. We were seated clear to the back so, we missed out on most of the patron interaction.

Seems to be the busiest place in Dodgeville. Very good food. Nice wait staff. The sampler platter with "dry rub" option was the best. We tried all sauces! We were there before 5pm. Started to get crowded at 5:00. I recommend going there for lunch.

Our food was fantastic. The brisket was tender and flavorful. A special on Wednesday is BBQ pork quesadilla which was delicious. The BBQ sauce is available for sale and worth buying for use at home.

This restaurant was recommended by a family member, and we're glad we listened. The "Q-crew" didn't know we were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary, but treated us almost as if they did. The service was prompt, friendly and accomodating. I tried about 4 of their...More

I would call them for the reservation. They do have areas big enough to accommodate your group by putting tables together. They are very friendly and bob is great about helping people out. And the food is great!!

Yes, all of our meats on their own are gluten free, and we have 3 or 4 sides that are 100% gluten free. Of our sauces, the Mango Red Pepper is gluten free, all of the others have about a 1% volume with soy in them.
