Bob's is an excellent local bbq joint. They smoke their own meat, so it smells delicious as you drive up. Their loaded baked potatoes are outstanding, especially with their smoked pork and plenty of bbq sauce. They also have good deals for family and picnic packs with meat, buns, sides, and sauce. Very affordable.

Stopped at Bob's to check it out. There's never a bunch of customers to wade through and I don't think that's a good thing. It also didn't look all that clean. I'm okay with a dive, but I want a dive that is clean where it counts. Then I remembered that this is the place that burned itself up and... More

Can highly recommend this if you are a barbecue lover. Very high quality.I am very fond of the slaw - am not a fan of anyone's baked beans so usually get a double order of slaw.

This place is talked about at work, so I tried it. The service is very fast. The BBQ is good. The best I had in my trip was a BBQ loaded potato.

Not sure how you can call this a family restaurant when they don't have a kids menu. It's commercial frozen crinkle cut fries or nothing. Bbq was average. Nothing special. Won't be going back.

You really can't go wrong picking up any BBQ here. They have a family pack with everything for a quick meal when you are on the run. I love their smoked turkey. Give it a try.

This place is really good. I was shown this by some locals and never knew it existed until then. I got the BBQ potato, which I normally don't get because it takes away from the BBQ flavor. However it was delicious. I will definitely come back again.

Great barbecue texture and flavor! No on the beans, tasted like straight out of the can. Slaw was good, a little heavy on the mayo. Will come back just for the 'cue! Love family businesses!

I like Whitt’s, I like Bar-B-Cutie, I like Poor Boys in Antioch and a myriad of other BBQ places in the area. The thing I like most about Bob’s though is they don’t chop and pull and pull and chop their meat until it is tiny strips and chopped up crumbs that fall off the bun every time you take... More
