Favorite place my uncle and I would come in and order the ribs combo. Can't go wrong! The meat you have to eat it with a fork it falls right off the bone. Old fashion type BBQ style

We've looked forward to our annual trip to Bobby Rubino's for nearly 40 years, but I fear it's time to move on. Onion and zucchini loaves are still as good as ever. Service was fast and friendly but the ribs were not the sweet young things we always knew. Not only were they over-cooked (like they'd been sitting a steam... More

We had the coupon for 2 dinners for $20. Our waitress, Bennett, was courteous and prompt. Delicious ribs and chicken. The value of the dinner was $50 so we gave her a generous tip.

Go early, sit at the bar for the happy hour drink of the day, (did I say go early?) and then enjoy the unique appetizers and entrees. The bartenders are quite entertaining. Or have the drink of the day at the bar and move to a table for a relaxing dinner. The prime rib is ample and delicious. The BBQ... More

While on vacation in Pompano we were told about this fine old establishment and we want to try it out. We were told to ask for a seat in the back by the birds. So we did and the birds were a nice diversion to watch. We both had ribs with baked sweet potato and they were great. Fall of... More

We went for a late dinner and found Bobby Rubinos. Food was excellent, service was decent, prices were reasonable. Portions were generous and our waitress was attentive. We would go again. We were seated in the bar area in a nice booth but will ask for a table in the dining room next time.

Sorry, but wasn't happy with my visit to Bobby Rubinos. Service took forever, and my food was delivered cold. Don't think I'll be back.

We took friends here for dinner. This place has been around for many years and we haven't visited for at least 20. We began with their famous onion ring loaf. It was good but greasier than I remembered. We all had ribs. The dinner portion is huge. Unless you are a very big eater, don't supersize your rib order. My... More
