Best Burger in Town

Ever since the normal staple burger places have closed in town (Wildcat House, Bum Steer), Bob Dobbs stands alone with the best burger in town. Hard to call it a dive, but it has all of the charm of your local dive bar. Great place to meet friends and feel like you live in neighborhood. Great... read more

Not too many neighborhood bars in Tucson that aren't seedy, so Bob Dobb's is a rare treat. Great location in the middle of Sam Hughes. Good beer, decent food and some lively servers at times.

Great drink specials, great staff, cheap (and very edible) HH food and free peanuts. What more could you ask for

Stopped here for a Sunday brunch after a trip to the zoo. Food was excellent and reasonably priced. I had an omelette, while others in my group had their hamburger. Service was prompt and efficient, food was delicious and arrived quickly. This restaurant/bar has been around for a number of years and is always fun!

Bob Dobbs is a solid place for a great burger and a beer. The service can be very hit and miss, but we had great service during our latest visit. The place is a classic college burger joint, but if you know that going in you should have a good time. They do have some dinner specials, but the closest... More

Sit on the porch of Bob Dobbs and watch it all pass by while eating a marinated burger and really crispy homemade chips. Or have cottage cheese and salad or a chicken sandwich and greasy fries. It's pretty good no matter what you order. The chili was a little too spicy even for my taste, but the rest was as... More
