Famous Dave’s Sweetwater Catfish with Cajun Remoulade.  All of them are served with a side of fresh fried tortilla chips and housemade salsa and are only $6.99 for two or $9.99 for three.

As always, definitely think about us for all of your party or business meeting needs.  We have seating for up to 80 in our upstairs loft area and never charge for use of the space as long as you are enjoying Award Winning BBQ for lunch or dinner.  If you can’t get away from the office and need to feed some people give us a call at 712-277-8800 and we will bring it to you.  To encourage you to do so we now have FREE delivery to an extended downtown area with a minimum $100 order.

Siouxland Metro (IA-NE-SD) Ranks First for Economic Development in 2013

For the second consecutive year (2012 and 2013), the Siouxland metropolitan region ranks first in the nation for economic development, according to results announced today by Site Selection magazine. The region also earned this award in back-to-back years in 2007 and 2008.


Our regional economic development partners (Sioux City, Le Mars, North Sioux City, Woodbury County, South Sioux City, Dakota Dunes, Sergeant Bluff) posed with Adam Bruns, Site Selection Magazine after receiving the Top Metro award for 2013.

Adam Bruns, Managing Editor of Site Selection magazine based in suburban Atlanta, traveled to Sioux City to make the official announcement to a gathering of nearly 250 local business executives, elected officials, and regional economic development professionals at a noon luncheon at the Sioux City Convention Center. “We did the research and tallied the numbers, but it’s the community and company leaders who are doing the work,” Bruns said. “The fact that the Siouxland region has earned this first place honor four times in the past seven years speaks to their collective vision, and the kind of continuity that gives company decision-makers confidence. It also speaks to the region’s ability to turn territorial lines into assets rather than obstacles — a concept state officials have obviously caught onto.”

I was excited to hear the Siouxland Chamber of Commerce was sponsoring a local seminar on Customer Service. As COO for CENTURY 21 ProLink, I know customer service is very important to client retention, so I am sending my front-line employee to this seminar. We need more opportunities to have programing like this in our backyard, so support this seminar today and sign up your employees.”
