... have we enjoyed barbecue sandwiches or meals like w do at Cal-Bob's. The brisket, turkey, potato salad and the cake are all standouts. Perfect BBQ sauce. Small building with owners big on personality and always a great meal.

Perfect meat, perfect sauce, perfect potato salad! Can't wait to try other menu items! CalBob's catered an event for our community, guests raved about the food! We went to the location after a long trip, found the service friendly and the bbq is excellent!
