Wow, where is the health department?

When we went inside the same guy came in to take our order, on his was to the counter he flipped some stuff on the grill. Mind you, never washing his hands! Then another guy came up from the... read more

I enjoy their food and think it's better than other BBQ places in the area, however, I can't give a better review because they are always out of something so I'm left settling for something else on their menu. Also, several times I've been there for lunch, the strong smell of marijuana coming from the back cooking area permeates the... More

we thought both the brisket and spare ribs were excellent. Portions were huge, next time we will order a 2 meat dinner and split it between us. My only complaint was we would have liked honey with the corn bread and the music was too loud. Come in early as they ran out of brisket at 5:45 pm. The parking... More

I would call myself a BBQ expert and make it my hobby to check out great BBQ's when I travel. I have eaten at former President Clinton's favorite place in Oklahoma and I have to say that Chicago Bob's beats them easily!! These guys have great food! Large portions! Wonderful owners! and great Staff!! Don't be fooled by the small... More

This place is consistently great! Get there early before they run out of delicious BBQ. The cook has some grills and smokers in the back yard. The music is supplied by the hostesses' iPod, and is super. Great sides.

I hate reviewing local restaurants because I feel like I am putting down my own community when the review is going to be bad. We have eaten at Chicago Bob's about a half dozen times since they have been open and think the BBQ is pretty good. What makes this place suffer is the service and organization. Twice in the...

This was one of the smallest restaurants that I have ever been in, but if you want the best BBQ in town then stop at Chicago Bob's. Fast service and great food. There isn't much seating but there are some picnic tables outside that you can share with the motel next door. Price was reasonable and I would defiantly eat... More

This place is now my new favorite BBQ place. We had the Brisket sandwich. So tender and juicy and the BBQ sauce was the best I have ever had. The place is very clean and the staff so efficient. It is small but you can take it home, eat there, or sit outside on a picnic table in the shade.... More

This place is great. It was a hot day as we were driving through Canon City and too hot to leave the dog in the car. I said to my wife, "Wouldn't it be great to find a roadside BBQ joint that has an outside picnic table in some shade?" About 30 seconds later she replied; "Oh, you mean like... More
