We chose this restaurant as a result of a discount coupon we had received, but were very pleased to find that it was a long-time restaurant in Pompano Beach and had very good ratings. We both had the BBQ chicken and ribs special and found it to be very good. The appetizer, an "onion loaf" (a mass of deep-fried onions... More

We had the "2 done for $25" special. We received a half onion loaf, a full rack of ribs, and a dessert. We had the drink of the day - a raspberry martini for $3.99 while we waited. The ribs were excellent. They were fall off the bone tender and were served hot. We will be back!

My family traveled to FL from the Midwest for many years and Bobby Rubino's was a must. We currently reside 25 miles away but had to make a trip down to Pompano Beach so we decided it was time to revisit. I returned with my 92 year old dad on Saturday evening and Bobby Rubino's did not disappoint. The BBQ... More

Ok, you go to Bobby Rubino's for 4 things...the original BBQ Sauce, the Ribs, the Onion Loaf and again the original BBQSauce!!! Now hear me out, this place is not a flashy beach restaurant. It is a landmark. It is dated with the same decor and style it's had since the early seventies or earlier. However, the BBQ sauce is... More

We had the best ribs we have tasted in a long time. Also this came with great service from Michael and all in all it was tremendous value for money. We had the coupon but the wine and the beer was also value priced. A wonderful late lunch/early dinner.

A Pompano Beach institution for ribs. I always go there for the 2 for $25 special (coupon on website). 1 onion loaf, 2 entrees, and 1 dessert. Hard to beat. Food isn't great but who cares. The place is clean, and the service is always good.

What can I say. They live up to their reputation. I thought all Bobby Rubino's were history so was shockingly surprised when flipping thru some touristy books to find a coupon. This coupon was actually to buy a meal, get a meal! Was seated immediately upon entering, sat opposite the bar. The place was surprisingly crowded in back for during... More
