We are there because we heard good things from this place but it's disgusting! We are our food because we were hungry but it was gross! The hygiene in this place is horrible! We saw cockroaches and the place wasn't clean! Don't ever go there!!!

Stopped in on a Sunday morning place was packed -- The service was great and food was at the table fast. Eggs, Bacon, Pancake, Toast everything we had was just great. If you like an old fashion breakfast place this is it you will not be disappointed.

Visited Bob's after a night of partying in Aggieville, so review might be slightly biased. The place was not very busy when we arrived at approx. 1:30 am, so we were quickly seated, and brought coffee. Waitress was exceptional, and took care of us. Had bacon, eggs, pancakes, and hashbrowns. The bacon, eggs, and pancakes were great, and the hashbrowns... More

Open 24 hours a day Bobs is great for breakfast food, but there are not many options to eat healthy.

As frequent travelers, we are always on the look out for local places to eat. My mom ordered the short stack of pancakes and was shocked when three pancakes the size of her plate arrived at our table. I had a half order of biscuits and gravy...the gravy was from a can:( The waitress we has was great. She wasn't... More

Bob's is great for late-night food and is ok for any time. The quality of food actually varies, depending on who is cooking! Their breakfasts are always good---and served 24 hours a day, if you like. Good and endless coffee.

What will make the difference here is the service! Everyone down to the bus boy will make sure that your drink is filled, your space is clean, and you have condiments. The food is pretty good. The place reminds me of restaurants of yeteryear....before everything was a copy cat chain. i'd go back.

Used to be an awesome drunk 24 hangout.. seems like it hasn't been cleaned since that time. The only 2 times I've been in the past 2 years my order has been wrong, service slow & not friendly, and I feel gross going in.. Sad to see this place fall apart..

Thank Lauren P
