Went here on a Sunday night. The place was very energetic and the Nachos were fantastic. The waitress was very attentive to us and brought our drinks out fast.

For several years now I have been going to Bobby's in the Tower District on Olive. Sometimes we dine in and sometimes we call in an order to go. When we do call in an order we always get the Enchilada Family Special. It comes with 12 enchiladas, a large container of beans as well as rice, and a nice... More

This restaurant/sports bar was recommended by our hotel. It was a Mexican Restaurant but had a varied menu and the food was excellent. The portions were fairly large. The staff was very friendly and provided good service.

Had a great lunch at Bobby Salazar's on Blackstone Avenue. The tamale and chile rellenos were great. The service was attentive and I will definitely go there again when I am in Fresno.

If you want Mexican food do not go to any of the Bobby Salazar's restaurants. Drinks? Sure. But I have to say even the chips are stale and the salsa is lifeless. For Food? Stay far away. There are many other places to eat.

We have enjoyed stopping in on Fridays or Saturday and having a Margarita, Chips & Salsa. Typically, we decide to stay for dinner or at least have a few Appetizers. We did this last weekend and were disappointed (as in the past two or three visits). Our initial contact/server was less than friendly and when I asked about the heat... More

We've eaten at Bobby Salazar's many times. I didn't care for the taquitos I ordered because they didn't have much meat in them. I loved their guacamole! Our server was nice but she took her time getting to us and the restaurant wasn't crowded at all. In fact, it was a Friday night and there were only 10 other people... More

I have tried most of Bobby's menu items and like most of them. I really like the monster burrito and the giant enchilada. You can't go wrong. Try the bacon wrapped shrimp!!

First of all, the food here is some of the best in the Valley! Their sauce can't be beat! Try the shredded beef nachos or the enchiladas. Now, if you eat there prepare to wait for a server/cocktail waitress to come to your table. Then when she does, alot of unecessary attitude. Skip the waitress and get your food at... More
