“Looking for AMAZING Texas BBQ?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

If you're in the area (and even if you're not) be sure to stop in to Cal-Bob's! The best BBQ and salads I've tasted ever! Great service as well! You just can't be disappointed!

“BARBEQUE. What more can I say? Plus good service and a Veteran to boot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

Head from Kerrville TX to Fredericksburg. Look out your window a couple of miles out of Kerrville to your left and don't blink. Order anything on the menu. High point are chicken (juicy), St. Lewis-style ribs (not greasy very meaty), prim rib, and do not miss the smoked red pepper soup. You will be glad you did.

Good folks to boot.

Cal-Bob serves up a great plate of bbq. The cilantro coleslaw is awesome!
A very good rich and thick bbq sauce. Gotta try the pork ribs!
Very clean & cozy with excellent "down home" service!

“Finally great BBQ in Kerrville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

The meat was smoked and tasted great. Even the smoked turkey was yummy. The sides were great too. The owner and family were very friendly.
