“Beer, Burgers, Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

Bob Dobbs is a solid place for a great burger and a beer. The service can be very hit and miss, but we had great service during our latest visit. The place is a classic college burger joint, but if you know that going in you should have a good time. They do have some dinner specials, but the closest we have come to trying them is the daily soup special (pretty good). I recommend the homemade potato chips. Wildcat fans will feel especially welcome.

“Still rough around the edges, this Tucson favorite still makes great burgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2010

Sit on the porch of Bob Dobbs and watch it all pass by while eating a marinated burger and really crispy homemade chips. Or have cottage cheese and salad or a chicken sandwich and greasy fries. It's pretty good no matter what you order. The chili was a little too spicy even for my taste, but the rest was as I remembered. Yum. We brought our kids to meet friends and family for lunch. Beware, some of the clients can be a little, how can I put this, racy for kids. A table of over 60's cursed like sailors, quite loudly, the whole time. Just don't be surprised if you're sensitive to that sort of thing!
