Great little find in Sioux Falls. Awesome baked beans, fries and chicken! Basically only limited counter service - so take it to go or avoid the meal time rush to sit. Very friendly staff

Great fried chicken, period! Being from Georgia, I know my fried chicken, and this chicken is kickin'! Not as spicy as the chicken you can get in the South, but delicious. Also, get the potato salad. It, too, was amazing!

One off reviews always make me wonder, whether too good or too bad. In Bob's case, there are many good reviews but a few "terrible" reviews. We're really glad that we didn't let that stop us from trying the great food and experience it is to eat at Bob's Carry Out and Counter. The counter is small so we felt... More

Mom and the kids were all clamoring for b dubs and burgers and the girls were not happy when I wheeled up to this little diner. An hour later they left with full bellies and felt like family. They even signed the guest book. Food was great and service very friendly. Definitely goes to show you that father knows best.

I stopped on my way through South Dakota for lunch and had their Santa Fe Chicken sandwich. The restaurant is small, but the food is delicious and fresh. I would definitely stop here again should I find myself in Sioux Falls again.

My friends ask me stop at this little diner. It's not that big, but the food is awesome. I went back to my office and told everyone about this little amazing diner and most of my friends agree with me. Do stop by for a great lunch. Prices are very reasonable!

Bob’s building has been around since the dawn of time (at least since 1944 when it was the Pickle Palace) and I’m guessing the exterior looked just the same back then. It was actually built from lumber from a destroyed building in downtown Sioux Falls. After perusing the menu, I decided on the Chicken and Ribs combo, with fries and... More

Had a great burger, companion liked her broasted chicken. Sometimes memories can be true. Think this was even better than the mid-sixties. Normally don't like sweet slaw, but this was some of the best I've had. Good service and friendly conversation too. Just glad I'm not in a wheel chair 'cause that restroom is something to get to.
