This restaurant is located near beautiful Lake Okoboji. The Coney dog's are my my favorite. The restaurant is known for their crunchy hot dogs. They have yummy loose meat sandwiches. Some people call them maidrites. The onion rings are super. The shakes are great too....More

A very busy eatery because the food is so good and the service is so friendly and efficient. There may be a line when you go but it moves very quickly. It sits up on a small hill overlooking the lake and the concert space....More

If you like good old fashioned loose meat sandwiches or an awesome hot dog....Bob's is it! No trip to the lakes is complete without a trip to Bob's. The loose meat sandwiches are awesome, as are the fries & hot dogs.

Nice little place with great patio seating overlooking lake in Arnold Park. They have hotdogs, chicken sandwiches and such. You order food at counter and they bring it out to you.

The loose meat sandwich was amazing and my husband loves the hot dogs. This is a great inexpensive way to get a meal in Arnold's park! Get it to go and sit in the park!

I miss Iowa taverns. I grew up with them, but I cannot get them outside of Iowa. Bob's has a great loosemeat that is served in the tavern and on top of hot dogs with onions and mustard. It's awesome. If you're thinking about coming...More
