After many years of eating at Bob's each time we came to S. Falls, visited the new place. What was always a 5 out of 5, is now at best a 2 out of 5. Yes, the chicken appears to have the same recipe. But...More

You won't find a better piece of chicken in town. Only down side is there is very limited setting (13 chairs). The best way is to order Togo.
