We biked a couple blocks off the bike trail to come this restaurant and boy was it worth it. I had the Taco Fabuloso. Best taco I’ve ever had. Not a Mexican flavor, a bbq flavor. Great pulled pork, amazing sauce, ‘Aussie Hottie’ sauce, kinda...sweet a little hot, yum. I bought some pulled pork and sauce to take home since we live 5 hours away. We definitely will have to go back to Iowa because of this place. The baked beans were pretty exceptional as well. Nice people, good experience.More

Stopped here after a bike ride. My sons all loved their pulled pork BBQ. I loved the artwork inside. I can see why this place is so popular.

Great food and fast service. I appreciated that they had gluten-free options. Big servings. Clean bathrooms which show they pay attention to things.

We were in town to visit family and decided to stop for lunch. They offer great food at a reasonable price. Very good service, too. The twisted fries are really good. Meat is tasty. We all had different entrees and all were good.

I wished we had this place in our town. Just a short drive of 35W with great food. The place is very clean and the food is great. If you like BBQ do yourself a favor and try this place! We will stop the next...time we are in the area.More

We had a pulled pork sandwich and a Cuban sandwich, both were very good with generous amounts of meat. The side of macaroni with corn, I think creamed corn, was very good as were the spiral shaped potato fries. We order at the counter and...it was ready very quickly There was a choice of nine different BBQ sauces to put on the pulled pork.More

This is a great bbq place that is a little out of the way. It’s a great detour while riding the HighTrestle Trail. Everything we’ve had has been good, the pulled pork is great and very lean. They have 8-10 various BBQ sauces which is...great to try the different flavors.More

I love BBQ and like trying unique places. This is in a very small town. Has a little charm too. But, BBQ is average. Have had much better at other places. Did not like the Mac and cheese with corn. Had pulled pork and it...was okay not nothing special.More

I loved B Fabulous! They were one of my favorite vendors by far! I wanted delicious, but simple food and they provided it with perfection. There was a blizzard on the day of our wedding, but they arrived on time with the food hot. I...highly recommend them.More

B Fabulous BBQ embodies the word fabulous in everything they do! My husband and I had B Fabulous BBQ cater our wedding in 2015 and it was one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning experience. It was really important to us...to find a gay friendly, strong community focused business to have cater our wedding and B Fabulous BBQ is exactly that. Billy and Deanna are two of the nicest and hardest working people we met during our wedding planning experience. They were super accommodating to all of our requests and took time to get to know us as a couple. During our wedding day, everything went so smoothly and that is all thanks to B Fabulous BBQ. I heard so many positive comments from our guests about how friendly the service was during our wedding. In addition to reliable, friendly service, the food is amazing! We got a few smoked meats with BBQ sauce and a few hot sides. The food was such a hit with guests that they were eating the left overs later that evening because they couldn’t get enough. I can’t recommend B Fabulous BBQ enough. Choosing them supports local business and you can depend on them to deliver an amazing meal for your big day! ~ Brian VanderheydenMore

Our wedding was a super small affair (~50 people to feed), and everything was perfect, but our family is still taking about the fried chicken, Mac and cheese corn, and veggie bowtie pasta. They were great caterers, extremely friendly, and it gave our wedding reception...something extra that most people don't. I love steak, baked chicken, and roast beef as much as the next guy, but I've never had better fried chicken in my life and having it on my wedding day was the absolute best. On top of it all, we saved a ton of money on food because they charged way less than any of the other caterers that we looked at. I cannot recommend them highly enough.More

We had B Fabulous cater for our wedding and they did not disappoint. It was so hard to choose what to serve because all of their food is delicious. They delivered and set up without a hitch, and their portions are generous, especially for the...price and taste. I would use them again for an event without a doubt.More
