Coming from Missouri and considering myself a BBQ expert, I was very surprised by everything at Bob's. I would rate a solid 11 on a 1-10 scale. You will not be disappointed!

We had been going to Bob’s since they opened and have always had good food, good beer, and good service. I like that they serve a variety of beers from Wisconsin breweries from the bar and a solid standard menu of options of traditional bbq.

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.
