The gentleman working the counter was very nice and made this better. I ordered the shrimp. They were just not very good. My friend ordered the soup and didn't like it much either. So I was not impressed with the food. The service was great.

Bobo's has coupons but they never seem to dent the bill. Don't expect savings but plan for the posted prices. The gyros is good, the burgers tasty and the fries are fresh. Inside and outdoor seating is nice. Ice cream is available too. Don't hope...More

Great ice cream joint. We took lots of photos. There was many choices of ice cream and cones. Located in a strip mall. You can try samples before purchasing.

Not so fast even when the place was fairly empty. (About the same as ordering from a waiter.) Definitely a poor imitation of Greek food. The chicken gyros was some kind of chicken lunch meat that was sliced thin and fried....reminded me of fried bologna....More

The owner, Gus, takes great effort in constantly improving the restaurant. The 50s decor with appropriate music is nostalgic. We love to go there alone and with the grand children. Gus has a neighborly attitude and is good with conversation served with appropriate humor. We...More
