Our family was passing through Ann Arbor on a road trip. Pizza Bob's was a quick stop for great shakes and malts. Unique flavors, too!

This is an ancient 'dive' known by UM students for decades, just a couple blocks from the heart of University of Michigan main campus. Great thick shakes, subs & of course pizza...nice to be able to choose white or wheat buns/dough. It's NOT the place for a 'romantic' elegant date....only a couple tables and 'bar' style seating....but for lunch, dinner... More

There is nowhere else to get a chipati. It is a freshly made pita bread (I like the whole wheat) stuffed with lettuce, mozzarella, tomatoes (I don't get the peppers), etc. They have a secret sauce that cannot be beat. This seems to be a unique food. I don't know of other cities that have chipatis. I have heard that... More

As others have noted, it's just a tiny old spot but they have great food and even better milkshakes. With all the flavors and combinations, you can't go wrong.

I get the whole wheat chipati without peppers. I have been getting this for the past 30 years and it still remains one of my favorite restaurant meals, even though I understand Pizza Bob's has changed hands a couple of times. A chipati is a freshly made pita stuffed with lettuce, mushrooms, tomato and served with a side of their... More

When our son went to U of M he took us to Pizza Bob's and introduced us to his favorite Chipati. Being in Ann Arbor again we decided to revisit Pizza Bob's. Not a very big place and perhaps they do more takeout because there is limited seating. We were happy with our Chipati but grandkids didn't care for their... More

I was a student at Michigan, and I ate at Pizza Bob's weekly. The best thing on their menu is the Chapati. It's a salad baked in a bread pocket with special dressing. If you've never had one, it is worth the trip--and grab a milkshake too! It's a real Ann Arbor experience, old dive looking place with great food,... More

Everytime I visit Ann Arbor, I have to make a stop at Pizza Bob's for one of their oven baked subs. You can get a whole or half (which is pretty filling for me) of 16 different kinds of predefined subs or make one up yourself, the YOUR DELIGHT. I recomend the Favorite on whole wheat or try the Chuck's... More

I would recommend this place, but you better find somewhere close to park. It was difficult to find a spot to park. Overall they had good service,quaint space, decent pizza, but great shakes!
