This is a local "dive" bar, and I don't mean that in any negative way. It's a working persons bar, with mostly a regular crowd, who enjoy their drinks and chicken, (and there's nothing wrong with that). It is not a place to take the...More

Best place to get chicken. Where else can you get a whole fried chicken?! Good beer selection too. A little spendy but worth it

Bobs is a decent place to hang out after work. The beer is cold and they have the best chicken around. Its a tavern so the atmosphere is as advertised its a good place to unwind.
