My wife and I visited Bobo’s based on a recommendation from our hotel and we weren’t disappointed. We had to wait a bit, but were rewarded with a great meal. Service was good and food was great. I had a western omelette and my wife...had a couple eggs, bacon & biscuit. I’ll go again when I’m in town.More

Wonderful choice for breakfast or lunch, particularly breakfast. Great food, excellent prices and a very friendly staff. They make you feel like you're family. You want to come back. Love going in early in the morning (opens at 5:30 am!). There are lots of repeat...customers. It's easy to understand why.More

We had business in Tucson this morning and wanted to try this restaurant that we had seen a review on. Parking is good, place is small and I imagine the wait could be considerable. We arrived about 10am after the first/second seating and still waited...about 20 minutes. Interior is old, food was adequate, service was good and the experience was unexceptional. We can say we've been there but won't be going back.More

We stopped in for breakfast on a weekday morning and had a blast. The place is small--10 tables and a half-dozen counter stools--and all of them were taken, plus there were a few people ahead of us. However, this was a highly efficient operation, so...it took only about 10 minutes for us to be seated. And my wife and I really enjoyed just watching the people and the staff. The gentleman at the front was very nice and kept an eye on the operation, helping it run smoothly. Once we were seated we had a very pleasant and efficient waitress. The kitchen was efficient, too, so the food came out quickly, and it was excellent. My wife had bacon and a pancake, which was the largest I've ever seen. I sampled it, and it was delicious. I went with corned-beef hash and eggs, and they were excellent as well. The food was inexpensive as well, so all-in-all, it was a fantastic breakfast experience.More

I don't know if I've ever eaten at a place that has had such good value as this. A huge pancake, two eggs, two bacons, and two sausages for less than $10, it's awesome. There was a small wait to be seated on a Tuesday...morning but it wasn't bad at all. Service was great, my food came out pretty fast. My coffee was constantly being refilled. It was great.More

When in Tucson, do like the Roman's do - EAT BREAKFAST AT BOBO'S! Looks like any other 'Mom n Pop' diner, but it juuuuuust isn't. The food is excellent, but it's the service that really makes you want to come back. I don't even know...how to describe their niche of friendliness. But I can't imagine any customer leaving without a full stomach and a genuine smile on their face.More

Wow! What can I say??? Love Tucson’s restaurants and Trip Advisor! We had nothing but great eats and a good time while in Tucson this Presidents’ weekend. We ate every meal out and thanks to Trip Advisor, every meal was a great choice. This morning...was Bobo’s. Had I not been using Trip Advisor I would have never chosen/notices this place just driving by. But what a great place! Friendly staff, excellent food and great service. Our group of 4 enjoys meat dishes as well as vegetarian, they had both. I really liked their potatoes moist, yet crispy. My husband and I shared the Ruben omelette;it was wonderful! We did that so we could split one of their apple pancakes. (A suggestion our server made.) It was a great idea. They placed the pancake in the middle like an appetizer and we split it 4 ways. No syrup needed! Again…AMAZING! Oh, also a side note very good coffee. Important to all of us in our group. This one is a keeper! We will be back!More

Bobo’s is a small diner that offers gigantic portions of breakfast items for very reasonable prices. Pancakes for example are larger than the plates they are served on. My wife ordered a short stack thinking it would be manageable - boy, was she in for...a shock. She was only able to eat 1/2 of a pancake. I had a flying saucer. That is one mammoth pancake covered with spinach, spices, and 2 cheeses. I fared better than my wife, successfully eating 3/4 of the dish. If you want breakfast in Tucson, go to Bobo’s, but go hungry!More

Food was good, well priced and plentiful! The pancake was so enormous it covered the dinner-size plate and hung over the sides. Easily enough for two. The staff were attentive and friendly. The restaurant is tiny inside but since it was still early (before 8...am.) we didn't need to wait long. The only downside is that the fans need cleaning. They were encrusted with dust.More
