“Great Burgers are sometimes just on the outskirts of everything else”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014

Great burger joint in Helotes with a multitude of different variations to try. If you're looking for a Tex Mex burger kinda feel, they got ya covered. Interested in a nice classic cheeseburger with all the trimmings? They have you covered. Not much in the way of toppings you cannot get here for great burgers and consistently great atmosphere. A bit on the outskirts of West San Antonio, it's one of the best burger joints in town. Service may take a bit, but the food is great and the people are down to earth. Definitely worth a stop.

“Good choice for a burger”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Nice choice of burgers and a very local atmosphere. We have eaten there may times and never been disappointed. Because their food is made to order, fulfillment takes a little while.

“Good burgers, and unique lunch spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

Three of us met for lunch at Bobby J's on 10/28, and we all enjoyed the burgers. We chose 1/3 pound ones, but they also offer 1/2 pound burgers. There is a very large selection of burger toppings, and their buns are very fresh. You have more choices there than in most places that serve burgers, and their quality seems very consistent. We ate lunch here last year, and have been pleased both times. Great location if you like good burgers!

“Delicious Burgers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

I've been to BJ's many times and it is always great. They have delicious burgers, fries and onion rings like I remember when I was a kid. If you ever want a old fashioned burger, go to BJ's, you won't be disappointed.

“Don't ask if the tea is fresh.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Went for a burger near closing time... Ask if they were still serving. They responses "yes" and invited us in. My guest ask if the tea was fresh. He was immediately met with a nasty and aggressive response from the kitchen help. Should have left at that point. Ruined the experience. They began sweeping the floors before we had finished our meal. Another yuk.
