Went to dinner with my 3 sisters to celebrate a birthday. Love the Kung Pao chicken, however there were no peanuts in it. I brought it to the attention of our waitress, who instantly told her manager but....nothing. I wasn't looking for a freebie, but an apology would have been nice. Then, she brings us our checks. Hello? 4 women... More

Pretty standard American menu selection. I ordered the pulled pork tacos. They were good but would try something else on my next visit. Family friendly sports bar.

We were given a voucher for a free buffet breakfast upon our check in to the Best Western Plus, which is attached to Champps.

I highly recommend stopping in to eat here. The food was excellent and my server Michael was wonderful. Attentive but not hovering.

We ate here on successive evenings on a recent road trip. The food during both visits ranged between so-so and excellent. A margarita flat bread appetizer was very good and the chicken finger dinner was excellent. A wrap and Philly steak sandwich were so-so. The salads were also very good. While the service on the first night was excellent (... More

Champps Americana is located on west end of Dubuque IA. It's a sports bar with many tvs, perfect for the Cubs game we watched last night. Champs has a variety of menu items from burgers, wraps, other sandwiches, pasta, soups or salads, as well as appetizers and desserts. Exciting large bar scene and lounge, however, if you want to dine... More

We had amazing food: shrimp tacos, gyro, chicken stripes, cheeseburger and kids corn dogs. Our grandson is a super picky eater, he cleaned his plate. Our daughter never eats all of her food, left just a few fries. Then we ordered the Mile High Ice Cream Cake, OMG!!! Amazing but it took all 5 of us to finish it. We... More

I wasn't very impressed. It was very expensive and the food selection was limited. The food was good, just wasn't stand out. Offered burgers, salads, wraps. Everything was over priced and I cannot get around that when I am feeding my children.

Great Cobb Salad, one of best in town. Excellent menu choices, often too difficult for my wife to choose. Tonight she added the messy sundae dessert, and it was delicious, first one I've shared in tears. Don't under the buy a beer forward for veterans, and no one understood or knows how the program works. As a veteran seems like... More

The slightly irreverent attitude has become our calling card over the years, doing things the way we always have regardless of convention. We're still making fresh hand-crafted burgers, roasting our own turkey and chicken, slow-basting our falling-off-the-bone-tender ribs, and hiring the friendliest people to be part of our team.Why bother? Because bigger and better isn't just an attitude. It's a commitment to everyone who comes through our door.The party is still going strong today. The burgers are still huge, the beer is still cold and we're the best place to watch the game. No matter what part of the country you're in, you are sure to find a neighborhood Champps nearby
