Authentic Detroit-style Coney Island food in a pleasant but simple decor, with Detroit sports and music pictures, etc. Good service and prices. Good food. Also has Vernor's and Fargo pop, and Sanders hot fudge. I heard they get their authentic chili from a place in Detroit.

We wanted a quick lunch and found this place after a quick lookup on the internet? Sounded interesting, but was so disappointing. First the positives - reasonable prices and very nice people - Bobby and his wife. But the negatives far outweigh. Did I say a quick lunch? It took 40 minutes for our food to arrive - and the...

Breakfast and lunch are great and reasonably priced. Bobby's special, biscuits and gravy are awesome as all of the breakfast meals. His fish fry is to die for. We eat there often.

My hubby and I come out to visit my brother in La Quinta at least once a month, try to make it to Bobbie's for breakfast or a chili dog every time we visit. Love this place, friendly service and the prices can't be beat.

Linda and Bobby who own this breakfast/lunch restaurant treat everyone like family. Great atmosphere celebrating all the time is Detroit which is where this couple hails from. Food is tasty breakfast items and lunch features original Detroit Coney Island dogs of all styles. I particularly like Bobby's pancakes that are light and fluffy, where my husband is a fan of...

I was driving by and the store I wanted to go to wasn't opening for about an hour so I thought I would try it. Decent prices. pancakes were thin and light, almost crepe. Sweet, very good. Scrambled eggs were nicely done, hash browns just so so, sausage disappointing. $9. Coffee was good. You can get by for 2 at... More

We stopped by for breakfast and had scrambled eggs/toast/hash browns, my sister had Denver omelet. The food had no other flavor than salt - too much salt! Within an hour my legs were so swollen. Food quality is questionable, the potatoes were dry and flavorless, and they used a piece of sliced cheese as a topper to the omelet. Environment... More

On our way from Palm Springs to Tubac, Arizona and made a pass through La Quinta for a gas stop and breakfast. Our first selection (Louise's Pantry) had a line out the door and since we didn’t have the time, we moved on to another near-by breakfast spot – Bobby's Detroit Coney Island. Upon arrival, plenty of parking, no lines... More
