I have been to Roberts several times in my trips to the Chas. area, and they offer a good sweet BBQ with a mustard base along with several other options.

The food was so bad we had to throw it away and leave. I ordered a cheeseburger and my husband ordered a bbq sandwich. The bbq sandwich was over sweetened and a low grade pork. I'm not sure what meat they used for my cheeseburger but it should be illegal. We aren't trying to be jerks, we just don't want... More

Yummy! This place has been around forever and remains my favorite for a barbecue sandwich and onion rings. The atmosphere isnt much, but the food more than makes up for it.

Sometimes you just need a great tasting, juicy burger with onions rings & fries in your life. Or perhaps a Barbeque Sandwich. For me, I needed their ALL Meat Club with Turkey, Ham, Roast Beef, AND Bacon, with a side of Onion Rings & Fries. It's always hard to decide between their perfectly brewed/made Sweet Tea or Lemonade.

We stopped into Robert's based on a recommendation from the hotel we were staying at and were not disappointed. We wanted something quick and inexpensive while at the same time providing a good taste of Southern BBQ, Robert's hit the spot. Although I am not a huge fan of Mustard Q my husband is and thoroughly enjoyed it. The bun... More

This is a drive in when they seem to be replaced by big chain fast(?) food places. Good food at reasonable prices.

Just from the outside of the building, I didn't have too high of hopes. I was thinking maybe this would be a hidden gem, especially with the size and location of the building. However, it was just a disappointing experience. The only barbecue offered is a pulled pork or beef sandwich. Both are overwhelmed with a sweet, mustard based bbq... More
