Bobo's is famous for it local caught Fish & Chips, but the half pound, hand made Bobo Burger is the favourite of the locals, and followed closely by the "Crunchy Chicken" burger. Texans put chedder cheese on their beer battered "El Sol" fish burgers. Kids love Bobo's tortilla crusted chicken breast fingers, Yummy! Keeping in beach shape, then you might like a house made Caesar Salad with grilled chichen breast or grilled local caught fish. The French Canadians approve and testify about the correctness and high quality of the Poutine. Bobo himself eats five pounds a week of the crispy wings. The place is hip, comfortable and clean. Take-out or eat in. Clean!

Great little place

BoBo's is VERY small and on a side street in Isla Mujeres but is definitely a great place for lunch or breakfast. It is divided into 2 sections with very limited seating. After hearing a good recommendation, we went there for lunch and the fish & chips were the best ever. The bartender was friendly... read more

I had a little stomach bug so I didn't get to enjoy this. I did take a nibble and my husband said its some of the best he's had. Servers were friendly and the food was served very fresh and to go. 110mp.

Good atmosphere. Went there last night on our only day in Isla Mujeres due to trip advisor's great reviews. Have to say trip advisor was right. We were happy we got a table right away, everyone shared tables because it's a tiny place (though I heard it used to be even smaller!). Met some nice people and I think it... More

We were really excited to eat here. And the fish and chips were to die for. Verrrry yummy! EXCEPT, within 4-6 hours I was sick as a dog. We both shared them and he also had some stomach issues, just nothing as bad as mine. We can't imagine that it was the fish or fries since both were very fresh.... More

All I can say is I hope we hit this place on a off night. Two of us ordered the burgers everyone raved about. They arrived at a temperature colder than lukewarm. The poutane fries tasted like fries with a can of brown gravy thrown over them with some cheese. Call us underwhelmed and never returning.

This place came highly recommended and it lived up to the raves! We were 2 couples who shared 2 of the above plates which were great! We met the owners and tried the tequila which was infused with jalapeño and pineapple. We were lucky to sit upstairs where we had a great view and some privacy. Priced very fairly and... More

We had the breakfast sandwich and it was really tasty as it is made with their own take on an English muffin.

My partner and I could not wait to get on the island and belly up to the bar for a fantastic and huge grilled fish sandwich and juicy beer battered chicken fingers! Oh and almost forgot..
