Delightful surprise

My wife and I were staying at a nearby motel who had a flyer for Robin's on the check-in desk. We felt like ribs for dinner. It happened to be a Sunday night, and we discovered their $12.95 all-you-can-eat rib ends. They are very, very good -- just as good as the ribs I have had in various places... read more

Friends recommended Robin's to us and WOW, this place really was great. We had the all you can eat Rib Tips on Wednesday night and they were tender, well smoked and we had several re-orders that all were good. The biggest suprise were the sides. The five cheese mac & cheese and the cajun cream were sublime. Our kids love... More

Good Times at Robin's.....be prepared to grub! The food is delightful. Decor is Americana style, I looked for road kill, lol, didn't find any...and the staff is very friendly. Go with anything BBQ'd, a martini and dessert....then go take a walk...you're gunna need it.

You better ask for the sweet potato fries, they melt in your mouth. The cole slaw gives you all the fiber in a very special and delicious spicy way. And the baby back are sinfully good, cooked slowly in wood, as they must be. Price is inexpensive for a real meal that will fill up your day with a smile,... More

Probably deserves three circles, but grading on a curve, this place has so much potential, they have no business being average! Which is what everything I have ever eaten here has been. Sadly, average. Boo! Two circles! For FANTASTIC BBQ hit Bonnie's B Smokin...Bonnies would be a hit in Texas or the Carolinas. In Pasadena, it's a revelation.

I went with my children and my parents Thursday night, the night after the big wind storm. The place was packed. My chicken and waffles were great. The beef ribs were delicious and we ate some the day after as left overs. The original cole slaw was very fresh and crisp. The service was very nice, especially considering how over... More

Have been eating Robin's BBQ at the South Pasadena farmers market for years, but had not tried the restaurant. I wanted hot links and tri-tip, wasn't on the menu, and the waiter assured me that it was not a problem. It wasn't. The links were tasty but not really spicy enough. The tri tip was tender and flavorful. Had it... More

it's not special. last time was there it was very warm inside. uncomfortably so. There's better BBQ; but on the other side of town. go, but keep your expectations low.
