The place is clean and so are the bathrooms. The food is kept hot in the buffet and the staff are attentive and food reasonable. We arrived at 11:35 am and it was busy for a Tuesday. The food was ok, mash potatoes tasted like powered, homemade rolls were slightly over cooked, beef stew tasted like Denty Moore's , fried... More

This is not fine dining. It is a buffet with good fried chicken, catfish, ribs and sausage. The vegetables are country style and plenty to choose. The mashed potatoes are fresh out of a box. Be sure to have desert. The pies and cobblers are great. We will be back.

Bob's is a quaint restaurant in a small town, which serves excellent Ameican style foods. Here you will find home style cooking with flavor that yu won't find in the chain restaurants. Great burgers and onion rings! Their catfish, ribs and fried chicken are exceptional.

Stumbled on this place by accident. Looking for a place for breakfast. This place we will stop again. The service is outstanding, and the food - well - almost too much, but was well prepared and and served HOT. And, to me, the best part, the coffee cup never went dry. And was very good.

They offer a huge breakfast bar. We didn't eat it. We ordered off the menu. We were there with a party of 20 and they kept up with us in a crowded restaurant. Great service and really good home cooked food...
