This Bob's is a satellite location to the original, located in Le Mars, Iowa. The location of this place could not be better - right off the lake. Service can be spotty as I am certain they have a huge turnover of workers. Food is...More

Bob's in Arnold's Park and Le Mars are both great places to eat for a quick meal well prepared with an exceptional staff. Try 4 Brother's also!

If you like good old fashioned loose meat sandwiches or an awesome hot dog....Bob's is it! No trip to the lakes is complete without a trip to Bob's. The loose meat sandwiches are awesome, as are the fries & hot dogs.
