You won't find a better piece of chicken in town. Only down side is there is very limited setting (13 chairs). The best way is to order Togo.

Food is good, place is small and cramped. They are REALLY proud of their chicken and the price is way too high.

Small place, only a counter to sit at. But it makes you feel like you are part of it. The cook interacts with you while preparing your food. And doesn't mind specialty orders. His joke was when ordering two eggs. Husband said over easy. Cook said "both?" Definitely a must stop. We will be stopping back to try their famous... More

Best Breakfast you will ever eat! Amazing Chicken. You walk in and there is just a counter... if you have to wait a second .... DO IT. Best food in town! Been there many times and each time the food is perfect!

We only spent one night in Sioux Falls and this joint made it such a lovely stop on our honeymoon roadtrip. We arrived late in the evening and sat at the counter. Ordered the mac & cheese wedges, broasted chicken deluxe sandwich, and philly steak burger. Watching them cook was mesmerizing! We just loved sitting at the counter and chatting... More

We enjoyed a late lunch at the counter. Very limited sitting but got right in. I enjoyed a Reubens sandwich and my husband had 2 piece chicken slaw and the fries. All was really good and staff was friendly.

You hear about that local best, kind of hole in the wall diner that has the best food? Well, Bob's Cafe is one of these hidden jewels in Sioux Falls. If you love chicken, this is a must stop for the best broasted chicken I have ever had.

Bob's had so many awesome reviews on TA, we knew we had to stop and boy are we glad we did! We stopped in between lunch and dinner and were able to sit at the counter. We were greeted by everyone working and they were busy getting ready a huge catering order. Even though we couldn't order anything from the... More

We stopped on a Saturday night and our family of four joined the four other customers who were already there, so the place was full. Two of us had the broasted chicken and it was delicious. My daughter had French toast and bacon which was also very good. My son had the cheeseburger and said it was average, nothing special.... More
