The food is decent and it is a small corner shop. The subs are good but everything else is average and overpriced. Having lived in other cities with similar specialty stores I do not believe Bob's is worth a special trip.

We have been a customer for many years utilizing both pickup and delivery. The product has always been fresh and scrumptious. Their catering service is terrific a great bang for the buck. Sandwiches are made to order and may take a while but the wait is worth it. Parking can be a problem for a lunch pickup. If you order... More

My mom and I stopped here for lunch on our way to Boston. The place is small, but lots to select from. I had the eggplant parm sub and it was fantastic. All the flavors you would expect. The only downside is that there are no tables or seats to sit down and enjoy your food. We ended up eating... More

Bob's has been a favorite destination for over twenty five years. I love the meats, especially the home made sausage. The sandwiches are great too, the family favorite is the Italian "with a little bit of everything" on it.
