because the Shot Tower is just across the street from the 5 Flags Center you can't find a more convenient place to grab a beer, burger, pizza, or some ribs. The tenderloin during my recent visit was pretty good. It is not the large, thin kind that overflows a plate but was more of the thicker meat variety. It was... More

The size of the orders have gotten smaller but costing more but food is still good quality and they do deliver which is one reason when we feel like a change we order delivery from them

You know those local eateries that desperately need remodeled, but if they did it would be the death of the place. This unique place has been around for a long time... thank goodness! Wonderful order-at-the-counter pizza, burgers and out of this world onion rings. The kitchen is in sight... old... very clean... and produces amazing 'bar' food for singles, couples... More

After a long day, we use to always count on a wonderful dinner, hot and delicious, and delivered in a timely fashion. We would eat there, or get delivery. The past couple of visits have been disappointing, but today's delivered dinner was horrible. We ordered 3 rack of bone dinners, which use to be our favorite, when it arrived, the... More

Ordered pizza and sandwiches. Food was OK but nothing special. The place had and old look to it. Place smelled like and old stale basement. This place needs remodeling. I would not recommend.

We really enjoyed the pizza here along with the homemade soup! The roses growing outside the window were so beautiful. We really enjoyed our lunch.

I met some Guys for lunch and to discuss an upcoming function. I always order the tenderloin basket when I come. My wife is also a tenderloin lover and She orders it also. The meal was delivered hot and fast. The tenderloin seemed to have shrunk and changed since my last visit. I have now decided that their tenderloin is... More

My husband And I went for lunch. They were understaffed everyone in our area had slow service. We ordered the BBQ big shot sandwich with ff and coleslaw. The sandwich arrived severely crispy/burned I have no idea how they served it. I thought I would just eat the meat out of it - it was terribly fatty and you could... More

Found this place while visiting Dubuque. Good size, tasty pizza. Fast service. Family friendly. They did look at me funny when I asked for a take home box. Guess they're not used to people not finishing their food. Would Recommend it!
