This place doesn't look like much from the outside, however, it is the best for a breakfast to remember, particularly the pancakes. The apple and banana filled are unique and tasty. One pancake is enough for a whole breakfast. Bacon, eggs, omelets are excellent also. Be prepared to wait in line on weekends. The service once inside is spot on.

I love the food, it is cheap and amazing. Especially the French toast. ( sooooo delicious!) however the place just looks dirty/old. A little Touch up would make this a 5 star venue

I went back to Bobo's because Robert's is closed this time of year . . . and agree the pancakes are fantastic. I ordered one of the banana and blueberry variety, which came out draped over the plate, as well as a side of sausage (patty). The pancake was so moist it didn't really need syrup, but I drizzled a... More

I have had Bobo's before but noticed I had never written a review. This is a tiny place with just fantastic food and the price is right! Really quick/pleasant service and its always busy, the portions are huge and you just can't find something on the menu that isn't a "must try".

My friend and I were looking for a place to have a good Sunday breakfast. He has mentioned that the line to Bobo's was always out the door on the weekends, which is typically an indicator of a good restaurant. As we walked to the front of Bobo's, a group of about 8 gentlemen were waiting to being seated by... More

28 May 2014. Breakfast. New to Tucson, read many positive reviews about Bobo's, so we had to check it out. Huge portions, great prices, very attentive staff with positive attitudes! Lots of fun, very creative menu, can't wait to go back!

Wherever we go, we like to eat where the locals eat. And this is a great one. Portions are big, prices are low, and the food is good. If you like pancakes, these are HUGE!!! NOTE: When we travel we bring our own maple syrup from NH.

We love Bobo's. The crowd is mostly a mix of college students and local workers. The restaurant space is very basic, but it is the food and service that shine. It is our favorite breakfast place in Tucson. Trust the local crowd.
