I just love to eat the bratwurst with saurkraut--that is my normal item at least once a week or so, they have lots of other items. It does seem to be the barbecue cravers heaven as well. I say go eat barbecue here!

This is one of our favorite restaurants. It is the choice of my husband and son for birthday dinners (or any other meals they can get there for). We can never decide if the sweet or spicy sauce is our favorite - both are spectacular!!

Absolutely no frills, just good barbecue at a good price. Small menu but what they make is top rate. Serve-yourself fountain drinks and sauces, small but excellent varying dessert selection.

Coming from Texas, this is a good attempt. Brisket was a little dry, ribs were OK. Perhaps there are other menu items that we can try another time.

Had a 3-meat sampler at Bob's and included potato salad, slaw, mac and cheese and chili. I tried 2 of the 3 sauces: the original spicy and the sweet. The third was a vinegar-based sauce which I don't care for. I found the chicken, pork and beef to be quite tasty with or without the sauce and nicely tender and... More

Since barbecue is not haute cuisine, it's perfectly okay to be in a strip mall. The place is clean and there's plenty of room. The menu is a bit short on some of the stuff you might be used to seeing, which is why only four stars. But what they do have is all good. As far as we can... More

My husband and I are always on the lookout for some place to eat when we go out for a scenic drive. Usually not many places around. So we were excited to try this place. The cafe itself is ok. Not bad but not fine dining. Again, just a place to get some lunch or dinner. The food was very... More

My wife and I eat here at least once a month (and we'd go more if we could justify it!) The BBQ rib plate and pulled pork is fantastic and has set a standard for us that we use to compare all other BBQ places with. The service is always friendly and the food is fast. The atmosphere is nice... More
