Enjoyed our dinner

The reviews were right on this one. The chicken is delicious. We also really enjoyed the fries and the beans. There is limited counter space, so we took our food back to the hotel--we are passing through Sioux Falls on our way from Ohio to the Black Hills, and checked Tripadvisor for a place to... read more

Loved it! Great portions, low prices, cooked with care. Omelettes are huge. Plus samples of chicken! Will definitely return.

The broasted chicken is very good: well-seasoned skin, tender and juicy outside. Ben (the friendly proprietor) suggested the "thing we're famous for:" the chicken and rib combo, which is broaster fried chicken and a small portion of ribs. The ribs were excellent: we loved the sauce, and the meat was fork-tender. We also tried the burgers, which were very good... More

Bob's is just 8 minutes from the airport and the countertop-style eating made for some great conversation with the staff. I had a giant burger and my 2 friends split some broasted chicken. All of it was excellent. The baked beans were truly the best I've ever had, which is a lot coming from a New Englander. Will make this... More

Heard this was the place to go for breakfast. I was sceptical, but hey they have great Chicken so let's give em a try. Wow what a surprise. They have maybe the best breakfast is Sioux Falls. The pancakes hang over the edge of the plate. Lesson learned- you only need to order 1. It is big enough. Hashbrown were... More

Come for the food, stay for the show. All the food was better than average, and the experience was even better. Demographic from eight to eighty, most with a story!

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
