“Run-down”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

Run-down old dining room, worn upholstery in booths, dirty floors, greasy, uninteresting sandwiches, just-okay fries. We had been warned that this Bob's Burgers was not good but it was still a disappointment.

“Burger place with no shakes?!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

Stopped on our way home from Canada.

Positives: Easy freeway access, clean, ample parking.

Negatives: Our server was inattentive which is an understatement at best. Appetizers came WITH our lunch, with an explanation that the pilot light went out. Burgers were adequate in size but nothing unique or special. Fries were standard. And NO SHAKES! Bill was $84 for 5 people. Fast food would have been a better option.

Overall our visit was disappointing and will most likely not be giving them another try.

“Slow. Quantity over Quality.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

Lots of okay food, easy to overeat, loved it first time, not so much next time. Can take a lot of time to get your food

“Big portions, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

Most people could have a good meal with half what they put on the plates here. The quality doesn't suffer either. The only thing we've found is that there is usually only one waitress and she seems to have duties in the kitchen as well, so if you don't forget to ask for something when the meal comes you may never get another chance.

“Undeserved reputation.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012 via mobile

Came here for lunch after business meeting. 12:30 so not that late. A doz other customers here. Seated almost immediately. Placed order and started reading reviews. Couldnt wait to see our lunch. Checked out the restrooms, clean. Observed surrounding tables and closely inspected our own, clean, no residues. I had oysters and potato salad, associate had mushroom burger and O rings. Its burger fare so we got just what we were expecting. The oysters were just what i honestly had hoped for and better than my expectation. The potato salad was bland and i wouldnt order it again but that was a personal preference. The shroom burger was great (fresh sauteed shrooms not canned) and the onion rings were typical, not exceptional but good. Upholstery was slightly dated, carpet is worn and discolored in places but the overall sense of cleanliness was acceptable. Jona was our waitress, she was friendly, courteous and professional. She kept our drinks filled and checked on our satisfaction frequently enough to keep us happy but not so frequently to be a nuisance. Thanks Jona! Overall we had a good lunch.
