“Eat here ASAP and love your life”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

The smoked prime rib is served with a special sauce made by Calvin himself. He is a chef, and he makes all the special sauces. Get the smoked salmon on Friday, but call ahead so you don't suffer when he sells out of it. Get the cake to finish it all off. These are good people, too!

“Best brisket in Texas”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

We visited Texas for 3 weeks for the first time this April. The first BBQ food outlet we stopped at was Cal Bob's. It was not the last, but it was the best brisket of the whole trip. Cal was a customer friendly customer service machine obviously caring about his guests.
This is a small but friendly establishment and could easily be missed when driving through as it sits on the edge of town. Check out directions first and be sure not to miss it.
We are back in the UK now and missing you already. Cheers Cal.
