I would say it's worth a visit if you're not prepared to be blown away by the experience. If you want amazing, go elsewhere.

Had time for a quick dinner so we tried Bitter Bobs. Ordered the sampler of barbecued meats and ribs plus cornbread, baked beans and slaw. Beans were terrific and the meats were done very well. The waitstaff was quick, friendly and attentive. On recommendation we were back 8am for breakfast. Again friendly staff quick service and great breakfast (fluffy pancakes!)... More

The best BBQ restaurant I have been to is very far from this one in miles and taste, Fiorella's Jack Stack Barbecue in Kansas City. However, back to Bitter Bobs. Bitter, lol, yeah, that's the taste I have of this place. Let me start by giving a warning: Watch the dog water bowl that is directly under the outdoor menu... More

They don't listen to your requests. there are only kids running the kitchen and wait staff. My husbands sandwich came out with sauce on it, plus cold and under cooked. Very inconsiderate.

A real disappointment! We started with the BBQ Brisket Sliders and it took over 20 minutes to come out and there were only one other couple in the place. It wasn’t brisket, looked like pulled pork and dried out. Not even the BBQ sauce could bring this back to life. The entrees were equally as bad and took another 25... More

Food took a long time to come out. Then my husband and son got their food and I waited 10 minutes before I received my meal. My hot dog was cold and undercooked. Nothing was as advertised. We got substitutions in our meals and were never informed that they were out of things before we ordered. All of the sauces,... More

My wife and I have eaten at Bitter Bob's at least 4 times and the food is consistently excellent. On our most recent visit I tried the BBQ pork nachos, which was delicious. The flour tortilla nachos were extra crunchy and loaded with BBQ pork, beans, sour cream and other goodies. The beef brisket sandwich and chili are also very,... More

sit outside ( its the sunny-side of S Main Street) in New Hope and watch the world walk by. Chow down on hand-rubbed BBQ. I had the beef brisket. My wife had chicken, Highly recommend both. BYO: you can buy beer by the 6 pack next door!

Visited on Fathers Day, busy restaurant but a short wait, staff accommodated our party of 7 by setting us up under an umbrella on a hot, sunny day. The chili was excellent, as were the barbecue dishes we tasted. Very friendly staff.
