A bit overpriced, but great location. Our teens love the burgers, fries, and shakes. Very few vegetarian options. Decent chili. Fun 50s ambiance. Excellent for tourists or locals walking around downtown. Close to the Riverpark and Smothers park.

I have eaten here many times and enjoyed each and every time, until today. The Manager (I believe) was so rude to myself and my family that we chose to leave the restaurant to go somewhere else to eat and she even followed us out the door and continue to yell comments to us as we walked away. My 5... More

Want to be transported to the 50s? Head to Bee Boo's and order a chocolate malted with whipped cream and a cherry on too. Sit at the bar and watch the cook or look around at all the great Marilyn Monroe art. Can't speak to any of the other food, but the malted followed by ice water takes the cake.... More

The only thing half decent is the decor. The food was bland and smalll portioned. We were given styrofoam cups when there were acrylic right there on the shelf (forget about glass). Everything from the napkins to the ketchup was the cheapest quality available.

I've visited Bee Bops several times this year. Each time, I leave satisfied! The food is alway hot and the staff is very attentive and friendly. The decor in the restaurant is bright and fun! They normally play 50s music to set the mood but this last visit they did not. My only compliant would be to bring back the... More

High ceilngs, 50's decor replete with photos and art deco furnishings. A nice addition to downtown. The first impression was that everything on the menu was fattening but hey. Will likely return when I need a dose of whimsy (and after I loose a few more pounds). The food menu is limited. It seems there are a few basic choices... More

A unique diner type location with friendly staff and great homemade sandwiches. A large menu and so far for us everything has been good.

We were out and about last weekend and decided to have lunch at Bee Bop's. Owensboro is traditionally a fast food town, so it was nice to find this nostalgic gem. We were greeted by a friendly waitress and was promptly seated. Everything on the menu looked delicious. I ordered the chicken salad sandwich on flatbread with an order of... More

We like eating at Bee Bop's with their different decor. Good sandwiches and a great value. The staff are friendly and treat us as friends.

The Bee Bop Diner has some of the best food around. Their cheese burgers are awesome! Do go to Owensboro without trying them out!!!
