Rather have it pulled than chopped…then chopped again…then some more…

I like Whitt’s, I like Bar-B-Cutie, I like Poor Boys in Antioch and a myriad of other BBQ places in the area. The thing I like most about Bob’s though is they don’t chop and pull and pull and chop their meat until it is tiny strips and chopped up crumbs that fall off the bun every time you take... read more

Needed some good food for a good price and found this place. Simple environment with excellent BBQ that is fairly inexpensive.

This place has been around for many, many years and sadly I have not visited it very often – – but only because it's not always in my path and I forget about it. The sandwich is full of meat and you can't beat it for $2.99!! I had a potato salad and beans and they are great too! Overall,... More

We use them for big groups and they are always on time and the food is great. If you are just doing lunch check out their loaded potato it is out of this world. Bob's is locally owned and managed for many, many years.

Their BBQ is so most & flavorful that you won't need any sauce, maybe just a tad! Every time I eat there it is always consistent! It is worth the drive if you are near Smyrna. Family owned & friendly service. The Best!!

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
