Try the Hot Chicken Caesar!

I've tried lots of things at Bobby's but the one thing I always return to is the Hot Chicken Caesar salad. It's tangy, and delicious with just the slightest bit of heat (spice, not warmth, though the chicken that comes sliced on top is hot as in warmth as well). The dressing is a caesar blended... read more

We visited this restaurant once for lunch and once for dinner, with both meals receiving the highest quality service, food, and drinks! We would become regulars if we lived here,as everything was perfect!!

Dinner at Bobby's Downtown was by far the best meal I had in Fairbanks (and I ate at many, many places). Service was superb, staff was friendly, Bobby was a great host. Do yourself and your tastebuds a favor and go there. You will be glad you did!

This is the best Greek venue in Fairbanks. The service is beyond reproach and the food even better, Best lamp chops in AK and you will never go wrong with their pizzas.

Love the food, drinks and atmosphere! Great for couples or hanging out with friends! Love the bar side on live music nights. Especially when it's Mr. Gardin (sp)is playing!

I hadn't heard great things about Bobby's but we decided to go anyway and check out their gyros because we are big fans of gyros. I am going to do what I can to let everyone know about this place now and how great it is! The restaurant is really large and would be great for large parties. The bar... More

I never order pizza--except at Bobby's. Had the Delphi tonight. They will add spinach to any pizza that doesn't include it if you request it. Bobby and Reina (his sister) make an effort to make every customer feel special. Great to have Reina back. Sometimes the bar is a bit smokey, but often no one is smoking at the bar... More

We tried our first night in Fairbanks, but had to go elsewhere because we didn't have a reservation. Went back the next night and had a very good meal. I would recommend it.

Had the pita & hummus and the gyro with fries. Both were delicious. Server was great. Hands down the nicest restaurant atmosphere in Fairbanks. Music before you step in the door, white cloth tables, cleanest bathrooms, well decorated.

I had been to this restaurant in the past and had great experiences. The last time my wife and I waited for over 20 minutes after being seated before I had to go talk to the host to inform him that we had not yet been acknowledged...we were given free deserts for the wait. (They were awesome)To be fair: there... More
