We were in town for the Baseball Tournament, and need a quick lunch. Wanted a break away from the normal fast food chains. Bob's BBQ was an excellent choice. Good portions, wonderful food, and Friendly people. We will be back if we ever visit here agaim..

Had the BBQ pork plate. Very good flavor. Good walk up counter service. Place was clean. Drive thru service too. Would have been 5 stars except the "hot" sauce wasn't a hot version of their BBQ sauce...it tasted like straight Texas Pete. Also need water filter to get rid of chlorine taste in iced tea.

My wife and I were traveling through in a RV and got take out around 6pm. I had the rib platter and my wife had the pulled pork sandwich. I had hoped for good BBQ what I got was only average at best. The ribs were dried out without much meat on them. My wife said that the pulled pork... More

My husband and I were looking for a Ma and Pa BBQ near our hotel outside Nashville. Saw the reviews for this one so tried it out. I've had lots of BBQ and thus was not the best but very good. My husband and I both got the pork platters which includes bread, hash browns, baked beans and coleslaw. I... More

I stopped by on my way home for a to-go dinner, after reading the rave reviews. My order consisted of a slab of ribs and pulled pork. Both were delicious, however, my husband commented that the ribs were the best he has had locally. I must say I agree. The owner/manager was extremely friendly and informative about the establishments offerings.... More

If you want better barbecue, you are going to have to pay a whole lot more. I love the pulled pork. The best within 30 miles! The sides are good but not great. I would select them first to cater a party!

A month ago, my family had a BBQ challenge as we looked for BBQ for a party celebrating my Father's life. We had BBQ from places in Lebanon, Smyrna and Murfreesboro. The party was this weekend. I ordered 15 lbs of pork. When I arrived I had about a 5 minute wait while they got my order ready. I'm from... More

I usually get a family pack for carry-out, and it is a great value. The pulled pork is some of the best I've ever had, and the side items are always good, too. At Bob's you can feed three or for people for less than $15, a value that's hard to beat!
