After many years of eating at Bob's each time we came to S. Falls, visited the new place. What was always a 5 out of 5, is now at best a 2 out of 5. Yes, the chicken appears to have the same recipe. But...More

You won't find a better piece of chicken in town. Only down side is there is very limited setting (13 chairs). The best way is to order Togo.

Food is good, place is small and cramped. They are REALLY proud of their chicken and the price is way too high.
