Here's the place the locals go. Outstanding food and good service. Try the chili burger...it is a decadent treat! Everything is reasonably priced and the portions ensure you will not leave hungry. The toasted ravioli was also very good.

After reading all the positive reviews, we thought we were in for a treat. Nope! I had the grilled catfish. It was bland, but overly salted. Salad was OK. Not many fixin's for baked potato. Hubby tried the buffet. Only thing he liked was the beef tips and gravy. Everything else was bland. Bread pudding was like the loaf he... More

All good choices but ask the girl (is she one of the 15 grandchildren?) in jeans and a tee shirt cus the really goood stuff 's hot even on the menu. You're here... More

We came here for dinner with our two young kids. We were passing through on a road trip and we noticed right away that it was packed with locals: always a good sign. The food was very good: fresh, well-cooked, tasty. My husband had the grilled catfish and I had the chicken tenders. As a born-and-raised southerner I have to... More

This is a country type place, nothing fancy. But, the food is delicious and is real country cooking. Their fried chicken is just like my mother used to make. It is delicious. Their buffet, though small, is full of delights. They have fried chicken and fried catfish daily, but the other meat varies. The day I was there, they had... More

Country Bob's is a great little family owned buffet. Great catfish, smoked ribs, fried chicken and a good selection of vegetables. The price is more than reasonable and the service is above average. If you want half cooked sides and a 4 oz entree for $28, go somewhere else.

Looking for tasty food, friendly service and great prices? Don't overlook Bob's Country Kitchen. As you enter the restaurant, there is a memorial area celebrating the armed services and veterans and active duty sign the wall with the dates served. The food was very tasty, as I enjoyed the country fried steak and eggs over medium along with crispy hash... More

Hey, what can you say. If your in the Missouri country side and you want to chow down on their buffet offerings...dig in. Good food, quaint but rustic establishment. A real local favorite, you can tell by the parking lot being so full every time we go thru. Better than fast food any day!

The food is pretty good if you order off the menu.Their buffets is what draws the crowds, but I don't understand why. The food on the buffet is barely warm, never hot like it should be. The fish is ok, but the chicken is really dry. Side dishes are generally good, but cakes are very dense and have an odd... More

Whenever I want a good ole home cooked country meal this is my go to place as we live about 15 miles away. It is located just off I-44 at the St. James, Missouri exit and north through a couple stop lights about a mile on the right. They offer a Friday and Saturday evening buffet which really draws the...
