Breakfast

This place is so good and so inexpensive. We are super picky and we were very pleased. Quick service with a smile. When we come back to Tuscon we will definitely be back.

I almost hate to review Bobo's, because it might get even more popular. This is a real neighborhood style restaurant - don't go if you are looking for a fine dining experience. But the food (at breakfast, when I went) is terrific, and unbelievable cheap.

It's a very casual, simple place. Almost truck stop looking. Please do not let that keep you from stopping. I went 3 times!! The pancakes will make you return. They are light and fluffy and so, so, so tasty. The first time I have the apple, cinnamon with pecans and 3 of us shared one. The next 2 times just... More

From the outside, this does not look very appealing,however, once inside,it all changes This is a very small restaurant with the tables very close together. This means that you will hear every conversation including the very vulgar from the young lads at the next table. That aside, this is well worth a visit The food is spectacular, (the pancakes are...

I decided to eat local for breakfast based off of a recommendation from a friend. This place did not disappoint. It was packed with local customers which I thought was a good sign. I ordered the scrambled eggs with home fries and toast while the wife had a giant banana and brown sugar pancake with eggs, bacon, and sausage. Everything... More

When I walked in the place was packed, only seat was at the counter. Your typical “Greasy Spoon” restaurant, but you know it is good when it is the place all the locals go. It did not disappoint. The food was great and service was adequate for as busy as they were. Friendly staff and customers, ended up having a... More

From the outside it doesn't look like much, but the food is really good. Very small inside, so you need to get their early in the morning to get a seat. Their pancakes are as big as hubcaps and their french toast is good too

Classic diner breakfast, won't disappoint. Chocolate chip pancake larger than the plate was a hit with the kids (the whole table really). Fast, friendly service as well.
