Stopped in for a quick lunch and had a good meal. The service was attentive. The chicken was well prepared and tasty. The corn bread was some of the best that I've had! They have both hot and cold meals (like chicken salad). Nice little...More

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,...More

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...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.

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...More
