I Could Cry

Cal Bob's closed. I enjoyed Calvin and his crew... great people. The food was delicious. Ir was on our way home, so we ofter did take-out. Very convenient. Sadly, he is closed. Rumor in town is that he moved to Tildon to a restaurant there.

Primo catering joint that serves up meals on the side of Hwy 16. If asked do you wants it Cal Bob's - say yes! Your savory smoked meat of choice is placed on a hot plate with CB's special sauce and gently carmelized to perfection. Be sure to save room for dessert. The oreo cookie and pine nut crusted banana... More

Sliding through Kerrville on our way to Texas we started craving BBQ. Checked out the reviews and decided to give Cal-bob's Smoke Shack.bg A five does not give this place justice. I would give it a ten! Cute little "shack", nicest people, and Great food! We will return on our way back to California.

I worked with Cal-Bob to cater a wedding in the Hill Country this past weekend and it was a simply wonderful experience! He and his team were efficient, clean, quiet and the food was out of this world. Crowd pleasers included the turkey breast, potato salad and cajun horseradish sauce. I simply cannot say enough what a great deal his... More

After driving around Kerrville looking for someplace to eat I came across the big red and white BBQ sign. I made a u-turn and came back to the restaurant. When I opened the door the delightful smell of Texas BBQ wafted through the air. I made my choices when I was done ordering Cal Bob and Cory asked a few... More
