“Our Parenting Class Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Recently my wife and I had the pleasure to be treated to a dinner at K-Bob's Steakhouse in Canon City. We had a group of 20 and a reservation, so there was not a wait or anything. We had a choice of four menu items: Chicken Fried Steak, Spaghetti, Hamburger Steak, or Fried Chicken. I had the chicken fried steak, and my wife had the hamburger steak. They were both hot, fresh, and tasted amazing. The mashed potatoes were great, as were the dinner rolls. We had a waitperson that attended to our party. She was amazing! We didn't even have to ask for refills or anything, she was right on top of things! Overall, the restaurant was clean, the staff friendly, and the food wonderful! I would recommend K-Bob's to anyone!

“Pepper-loving cook...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

K Bobs menu says they are proud of the steaks which are sourced from nearby American family-owned ranches. They might be proud to buy them but they sure don't carry that pride to the table.

First impressions were not good. The floor in the waiting area was sticky and we could smell the bathrooms located just off the waiting area. They appeared busy so we figured we'd give it a go. Never again.

Ordered the steak and shrimp. Steak was cooked perfectly however was served drenched in pepper. Daughters grilled shrimp was also loaded with pepper. Breaded shrimp were large and tasty. Mashed potatoes and gravy were good but heavy on the gravy. Daughters mashed potatoes and white gravy were given an awesome rating with "two thumbs up".

K Bobs strikes me as a bare bones local eatery short on atmosphere. Staff try to be helpful and empathetic, as evidenced by the cashier taking complaints from customers regarding quality of their food. As was heard over and over again, some parts of the meal were great, others not so much. Clearly, K-Bob's has potential. In the end, its the execution of the entire meal that counts and K Bobs misses the mark for us.

Final thoughts - let the customer decide which foods need pepper because clearly everything on the plate doesn't need it. If you can't taste the meat through the pepper, what's the point?

“Not fancy, but a good steak”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

The facilities weren't the newest or prettiest, but we had a good chicken fried steak at a reasonable price. The salad bar (wagon) had a nice selection too!

“Excellent BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

When I was switched from the motel review to the restaurant list, Trip Advisor said it never heard of this place. Obviously a glich in the program. Service food, and prices were excellent. The waiter was the nicest person. We had a great meal.

“Comfortable Setting and Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Kbobs is a wonderful family-owned business. Colorado used to be full of Kbobs, but now Canon City is the only town that still has this great restaurant. But, this particular restaurant has always been my favorite Kbobs. The salad bar is out of this world. The cooks do an excellent job of making delicious food every time. The indoor decor is delightful. I feel so at home at this restaurant.
