I work less than 2 miles from Mac and Bob's and it's our favorite place to go for a long lunch. The food is awesome. My favorites are the Katie's salad with a cup of French Onion Soup or the Calzones. The calzones are huge and so far the best I have had in the Roanoke Valley. The French Onion... More

I've come to the conclusion that a lot of reviewers don't eat out much. As I travel for a living, I eat out too much and have the gut to show for it. Which brings me to Mac & Bobs. It is highly rated on Google and gets pretty good reviews here, so here we go. It was a dark,... More

Great menu, large crowds, ease of access for disabled customers not so great. Parking can be a problem on a Friday or Saturday night.

My Favorite Place in my City to Eat! The ambience is wonderful, the food, drinks and staff! The owner comes around to everyone's table if he is there to ask them our their food is and just chit chat.

This restaurant is usually crowded but service is not always good and the food is inconsistent. The chicken tenders I had last were cold, dry and tough - although the fries were fresh and hot and my friend said the burger was good. The steak sandwich, pizza and calzones are usually good. The bar has several TV show for sports... More

This is a family friendly place to eat. Lots of choices for everyone and the food is consistently good. The portions are good sized and you won't walk away hungry. The philly cheese steak sandwich is one of my favorites. The air of camaraderie makes everyone feel welcome and a part of what's happening there. Definitely a place to stop... More

Located in a great small town, very close to the beautiful Roanoke College campus, the place was packed on a Saturday night. Most of the customers were families. The service was excellent despite the crowd. I ordered the Augustino, their flagship submarine sandwhich. If this was not the best sub I have ever had, it was in the top two!... More

On a college visit to RC. Our tour guide and coach we met with strongly suggested Man N Bob's so we checked it out. Really glad we did. My son had the BostonZone - he's a big eater but could only finish half. I had the Pittsburgh Steak - came to the table on a sizzling platter - great presentation... More
