I am the type of person who regrets eating at resturants because after I see the bill I think to myself, that was not worth this amount of money. Never at roberts! Friendly staff with amazing food! There cinnamon rolls are to die for! Make sure you ask for it toasted, it just melts in your mouth. You can also... More

Back in the seventies when Robert's was on Speedway the food was terrific and served up a good working person's meal in record time. So I tried it again after many years. What I got was overcooked vegetables, a horrible tasting meat loaf, sock juice coffee and spotty service. Roberts has gotten lazy and out of touch. Crappy coffee doesn't... More

Robert's is nothing fancy. It has a diner atmosphere, but the food and service is great, and the prices are extremely reasonable. Would highly recommend for breakfast. Great food, fast service and very pleasant servers.

We ate here the day after we ate at Bobo's. The food is great and the atmosphere is a little less frenetic. A great local place to eat.

Mom said, let's eat here..you never know when you might find a... More

As you drive up to Roberts for the first time, you might think to yourself, "Is this the right address?" Don't be misled by the modest outward appearance of this place because once your meal is served you'll know you're at the right place. If you're looking for a great breakfast you've found it with Roberts. There's something for everyone:... More

This was my first time eating at Robert's and I was very pleased by the portion size and the quality of food. We sat at the counter and had great service. They have fresh baked cinnamon rolls. We were too full to have one but they looked delicious.

My wife and I visited Robert's Restaurant while visiting Tucson and couldn't have been more pleased. The waitresses were friendly and attentive. The breakfast sandwich I had was FANTASTIC and the grilled cinnamon rolls were delicious. Just a really great breakfast at a reasonable price. The atmosphere is what I want in diner; clean and no frills. The patrons in... More

Yesterday I took my sisters to lunch at Robert's. Right off the bat we were greeted by the same corps of waitresses who have been here for years. I had my sinful pleasure, chicken fried steak with fries -- gravy over all!!! No guilt. One sister had the"special" A hamburger with green chiles & cheese. She said that the beef... More

I discovered Robert's Restaurant when I lived in Tucson in the mid 90's and became a regular customer. I have since moved away but eat breakfast there everytime I'm in Tucson. The breakfast is exceptional with generous portions and delicious homemade toast (they make bread on site every day). I highly recommend the homemade cinnamon rolls. The wait staff are... More
