“Dependable, value, great service”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

If I go out for breakfast or lunch in Pontiac, I go to Baby Bull's. The menu is actually pretty big/diverse for a small-town joint. The food is dependably good, the service is always fantastic, and it's a good value. Kind of went through a rough phase when the original owner sold, but he's back and the restaurant has regained it's snuff. You don't go to Rome and expect good sushi, so don't be upset if you can't get your turkey club on fresh multi-grain bread. But you can expect to get a good bite to eat for a very reasonable price.

Baby Bulls in Pontiac is the place to go if you are looking for a variety of good food at a reasonable price with excellent and fast service........a neighborhood restaurant with a hometown atmosphere and friendly people........Jimmy (the owner) will greet and seat you himself, always overseeing things to make sure your experience at Baby Bulls is a good one. The menu is huge...it would be hard NOT to find something you like here.

“1 Good Day & 1 terrible Day”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

On a trip to see our Grandson play in a baseball tournament in Pontiac- After his games on Saturday, 19 of us went for breakfast/lunch. We were seated almost immediately and taken care of by 1 waitress who did a super job in handling our 3 tables. My wife and I left with a great feeling about this restaurant. After Sunday's games, the 2 of us decided to go back here. My wife wanted a salad and I wanted breakfast. Just Sunday before noon was packed but we were seated right away. Nice! But that wouldn't last. After a few minutes the waitress came and took our drink and food order. My wife wanted a BLT Salad- I wanted a short stack of pancakes, sausage and 2 eggs over easy. After 20 minutes the 7 tables near us that were there before us were finished and left. We waited for our food. Then the people who came in 10 to 15 minutes after us started getting their food. Not us. Then I noticed the table across from us got pancakes and eggs. Then the table next to them got their order of pancakes and eggs. Still nothing for us. So apprx. 50 minutes without our order , I called the guy who sat us and asked him rather loudly why were people getting their orders who came in after us . He said-- I'll check. We got our food in about 3 minutes. We ate - not one person came to say they were sorry and funny the lady at the cash register didn't ask "How was everything?" I wonder why. Needless to say- Saturday's good feelings were down the tube. No problem at all with the food but getting it is another story. On our future trips down Rt.55- this will not be on our list of stops!!!

“Very average”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

Stopped here on a trip to Chicago and came away disappointed. Broiled fish was watery and baked potatoe was only half eatable. We chose to bypass it on the return trip.
