Home cooking and great fried chicken

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... read 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...

The evening front-desk attendant at the Greenstay recommended Bob's when I said I was in the mood for some good, home-cooked fried chicken. She also said, "Everyone in town will be there as well." I took her at her word and headed off to Bob's. After a short (less than a mile) drive, I pulled in to a packed parking... More

Mmmmm, Good Chicken, Good Chicken! We were recommended to Bob's on an earlier stay in the area but unfortunately by the time we checked into our hotel they had closed for the day. This time we made sure that we were able to try the place out and were very happy with the food and service! We had read another... More

Outside a few large cities, Missouri is a rural place. Farmers and blue color workers - the salt of the earth. This Cafe is a staple in St. James because they cater to rural folks. My breakfast was simple: omelette with toast. It was hot, good sized, and reasonably priced. The servers are friendly, and listening to the conversation helps... More
