It's good, but know what you're getting into. Location a bit seedy. What ever you do...if you can afford the carbs go for the pecan pancake! Yum. Even without syrup.

Wife and I eat here whenever possible! Great, fast, inexpensive food! Excellent service! Sometimes there is a long wait to get in... it's worth it!!! Best sourdough toast I have ever had!

If one visits Tucson this small Mom and Pop is a must stop for an incredible breakfast. Expect to wait because this is a Tucson tradition for breakfast. As a world traveler myself this is well worth the wait. Portions are large and the price is unbelieveably low

Tiny, dive-diner on Grant between Country Club and Tucson Blvd. Busy, busy, busy, but friendly, personable waitstaff, extensive breakfast menu and specials. I asked for and received a 1/2 chocolate-chip 1/2 banana pancake that lapped over the edges of my plate. Excellent! My dining partner had the eggs, sausage, and hash brown plate. Lots of food, well cooked. Worth a... More

Bobo's is a wonderful place for breakfast. The service is great and the food mouthwatering. The apple pancake doesn't have the place of renown it should on the menu. Don't miss it!!! Ordinarily, I would never order one, thinking it would be full of those canned apples. This is not! It is like having the best thin apple pie you... More

Thank you for a wonderful hotel manager, for sending us to this wonderful, neighborhood favorite. My husband and I had to force ourselves from not finishing the HUGE blueberry and apple pancakes we ordered. Absolutely old-school delicious! Coffee was delicious and service with a big smile. There's nothing fancy or frivolous in this restaurant, but there's pride in making their... More

This place made us smile, reminding us of the dives we used to eat breakfast at when we were in college. We sat at the counter which was fun and were served by what looked to be 3 generations a of family. The food was good fresh and plentiful The motif scruffy, and the prices right. Enjoy yourself, just don't... More

Can be a little difficult to get in here sometimes, but that is because it is so popular. The food is very good and the portion sizes are huge!!

This is a local place that's open 7-days a week for breakfast and lunch. Service is very friendly and the food very good. It's not fancy, and prices are reasonable. It's a great place for breakfast.

Thank Bert S
