Pulled pork was acceptable, but uninspired. The "hot" sauce was anything but. Potato salad was straight from the 25 lb. bulk tub. Probably would not return.

I tried dinner at Bad Bob's recently, and I was pleasantly surprised. Pulled pork BBQ was tender and tasty. Sauce was pretty good. The potato salad was awesome, so I definitely recommend getting some of it with your meal. The only thing I didn't care for were the fries, which seemed cold like they had been sitting for awhile. Everything else was fantastic. Prices were reasonable and service was fast.

My husband's company has used this place twice for catered dinner. Both times he has become extremely sick withing 30 minutes of eating sending him home in bed both times. I do not recommend using this place for catering. Food not kept up to temp.

Ate at here for lunch one day after hearing its the best BBQ in town. Was average BBQ, nothing special. Meat was tender but no smoke flavor to speak of and tasted like something that I could have made at home. The sauce is where they really lost me. It looked and tasted like they added water to a 3/4 empty bottle to make the sauce last longer. It was running and made the bun soggy without adding any sort of flavor to the sandwich.

The inside of the joint is not fancy by any means so don't go in expecting you've seen in a chain BBQ joint.

If you are looking for a tasty pulled pork or brisket sandwich... head on over to The Keg. Their sauces and smoke flavor are significantly better than what you can find at Bob's.
