The store was closed for business the day we arrived but someone was loading up totes of popcorn in a van. My daughter peeked her head in and asked if we could purchase some popcorn as we would be leaving Dubuque late in the day. The woman whom we found out was Freddie's wife couldn't have been sweeter. She let... More

This is a very small business on Main St in Dubuque. Stopped there with my mom, and although there were totes all over, making it a little cramped, we found sown delicious popcorn. It's affordable, tasty, and smells divine inside the shop. I doubt the totes are a standard fixture, and it is my deterring me from writing a great... More

Freshly popped popcorn by 3 generations of family. Service is great.. Many flavors which are all available to taste. From a small bag to big tins and maybe more... Mixing and matching flavors is fun and tasty. They will also deliver. Gotta try it.

I ordered Freddie's Popcorn as a welcome gift for a group I was bringing to town. They delivered to our hotel up the street and the flavors were great. Very pleased!

Stopped for a break from driving and enjoyed the family friendly atmosphere. Tried several flavors and if they didn't have it our they would get it for you. Very personable people and easy to talk to! Small shop, but very cozy and fun.

I visited the store with the girlfriend & the owner was very friendly. I think we sampled just about every flavor in the store. I especially enjoyed the bacon cheddar and caramel apple flavors. Wide assortment of flavors.

We happened upon the stand and bought a couple of varieties from them. Freshly popped and not overly so. Plenty of flavors to choose from. Friendly staff/owners. Clean and well worth a short stop for a snack.

Freddie's Popcorn in my humble opinion is truly one of Dubuque's somewhat hidden gems. I live in the city and regularly refer friends and out of town guests there and no one has been disappointed. The chocolate covered popcorn and the cheddar corn are AWESOME! You will try to take a box home but trust me it will not likely... More

I first discovered this hidden downtown gem when I needed something fun for a work treat for the group. When I stopped down to visit their shop, I was surprised at how small the store was, and I was amazed by all the flavor offerings within it. From classics--plain, cheese, caramel--to new finds--caramel apple, fruit burst, Mississippi style--there were a... More

Stopped by on a lazy Saturday afternoon. It was quieter downtown than we expected, which was a nice surprise. The two ladies working were friendly and offered samples of the various popcorns they had for sale. We were pleasantly surprised to find the prices were modest for their delightful popcorn. Nice job!
