If you like chicken, this is the place. It's got an old-school vibe. I had the excellent chicken pie this time. I've also had the broiled chicken dinner and the chicken soup, and both were tasty. It has good comfort food and very reasonable prices, and is a nice alternative to some of the la-de-da downtown restaurants.

We've been going to Bob's Broiled Chicken for over 20 years, both for lunch and for dinner. The staff is always friendly and cheerful. We love the jazz that is typically playing (we heard "A Love Supreme" last night). Bob's may be the only restaurant that plays jazz for both lunch and dinner via Sirius. The meals are very reasonably... More

Bob's chicken will remind you of home cooked meals created by your grandma just for you😊 The menu is both healthy and comforting. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Don't let the low prices fool you, the quality and quantity is wonderful!

My husband wanted some home cooking instead of the usual restaurant fare. We read the reviews and thought Bob's fit the bill. We both got the broiled chicken dinner. The chicken was dry and warmish. The sides were ok, although not hot. Very dissapointed.

We found this place by reading a couple of restaurant review sites and decided to try this restaurant because of favorable reviews of the chicken. We were there on a weekday and the restaurant was rather empty although people were coming and going for take-out food. The corn bread was very good; not overly sweet or crumbly but moist and...

We stopped here on our way to the White Mountains. It's a cute, homey, casual place. Both of the people working the front area were very nice. They have a large selection of sides to go with the chicken, including many vegetables to choose from. Everything tasted very fresh. Side dishes were large. We'll go again, next time we're in...

When a restaurant focuses on one thing, as Bob's has done with chicken, they learn to do it as well or better than others. While there are some non chicken items on the menu, chicken is their forte. Speaking with the Waitress who has been there for many years, you could tell she was proud of the business and what... More

Great home style cooking. Had the turkey meatloaf and wow was that good! My wife had the broiled chicken and she was very happy with her meal. We were so full could not make room for dessert! Very friendly and outgoing waitress made us feel quite at home.

We found Bob's Broiled Chicken on google Maps, just seeking a nice dinner while we were enjoying a getaway weekend in NH. We both ordered chicken with two side dishes, mashed potatoes, stuffing, Mac & cheese, veggies, all was freshly prepared & delicious! Complimentary corn bread & butter was reminiscent of my mom's cooking & made me feel so at... More
