Destination Dodgeville

At Bob’s, you’ll experience barbeque the way it should be. All of our BBQ is slowly smoked featuring our dry rub & seasoning. We don’t believe in cutting corners, so the food you enjoy at Bob’s Bitchin’ BBQ is made from scratch in our kitchen. We source ingredients locally whenever possible and we want your visit with us to be a satisfying and fun experience that will keep you coming back for more.

The History

It all began with the sauce. For over thirty years we’ve been making our Original sauce for friends and family to enjoy. While preparing for a catering event in the late 1980’s, one of our employees proclaimed that it was the most bitchin’ sauce she’d ever tasted and our name was born.

In July of 2011, we began selling the sauces at Farmer’s Markets, retail outlets and literally out of the trunk of our cars. As we talked about opening a restaurant to showcase our talents, we chose downtown Dodgeville to extend the story.

Our signature sauces

With eight flavors to sample, everyone will find a sauce to love! Whether you’re a fan of traditional BBQ flavors, like it hot, or prefer it sweet, Bob’s has one for you. Read more about the sauces and even buy them online in our shop »

If you can't make it in to the Restaurant and can't wait to buy some online, visit any of these local retail outlets to pick up some sauce. Where to buy »

BBQ Love

We love what we do, and it seems that the people who choose to dine with us agree. We’re happy that some have shared their experiences on FacebookYelp!, TripAdvisor, and UrbanSpoon.
