My family went to Mac & Bobs for Sunday brunch the other week. We had a wide variety of dishes among the large group of us. Sandwiches. Breakfast dishes. Pancakes. Stuffed French toast. The only thing I can point out as “constructive criticism” is their...More

Food was decent, did not care for "Fly By Waiter", and sticky table, could not get a Wait service to help us. They where not that busy on Monday night.

Stopped in tonight while passing thru. Really Good Food. My waitress could not really answer many questions about various items on the menu so I went with the house special. It was delicious. Will stop by again when in the area.

Recently visited Roanoke College and Mac and Bob's was recommended. We had excellent service and the food was delicious. Try the crab dip appetizer. Menu offers something for everyone. Salads, sandwiches, calzone, lots of options. Nice place for lunch or dinner. Offers reasonable prices.
