Bob's is a local place, with a simple, down home menu. The food is good for that sort, and the chicken fried steak is excellent. Service is decent. With the new non-smoking laws, the place can be enjoyable. The main appeal for us was always the hours - 24 hours a day, and that hasn't changed - and the price.... More
