Restaurant details
Reviewed November 15, 2011

The very friendly owner, Bruce, explained that Sweet Bob's is actually spelled "B.O.B.'s BBQ", the abbrevi- ated moniker for their favorite baby girl, "Big Ole Baby" whose cute picture is on the wall. This restaurant has some rough edges and tremendous potential if certain things would improve. However if you are a true barbeque fan, come and enjoy the tasty varieties of fruitwood-smoked BBQ sandwiches according to the Kansas City school of how its done. There is no problem with the food, in my opinion... But, however:

The unusual "New Orleans" decor is a semi-funky red and black paint job with neon and copper tables. The printed menu and the overhead order boards are not entirely the same and I got confused. I had to repeat my order three times before the staff comprehended. They are skimpy on the so-called Texas toast and the condiments. But I do recommend the stronger BBQ sauce and also the sweet potato fries without the icing. Coca Cola products are served.

Caution! Sweet B.O.B.'s bathrooms were atrocious and need vast improvements. The kitchen, though, had an authentic look and feel. Parking is adequate and access is fairly easy off the Frederick-Pigeon Pass exit of the 60 Freeway. Although the decor is 'roadhouse', Sweet B.O.B.s is family-friendly.

Bottom line: They have great food and a high potential here to stand out but need to make the operation more 'user friendly' as mentioned. But if you are not picky or fussy, double order a rib tips with all the trimmin's then kick back, take your time and enjoy a plate of K.C. fixins at a reasonable price. You just might like the place.
