“Great brunch”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Stopped here for a Sunday brunch after a trip to the zoo. Food was excellent and reasonably priced. I had an omelette, while others in my group had their hamburger. Service was prompt and efficient, food was delicious and arrived quickly. This restaurant/bar has been around for a number of years and is always fun!

“Beer, Burgers, Location”
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”
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!
