My hubby and I come out to visit my brother in La Quinta at least once a month, try to make it to Bobbie's for breakfast or a chili dog every time we visit. Love this place, friendly service and the prices can't be beat.

Linda and Bobby who own this breakfast/lunch restaurant treat everyone like family. Great atmosphere celebrating all the time is Detroit which is where this couple hails from. Food is tasty breakfast items and lunch features original Detroit Coney Island dogs of all styles. I particularly like Bobby's pancakes that are light and fluffy, where my husband is a fan of...

I was driving by and the store I wanted to go to wasn't opening for about an hour so I thought I would try it. Decent prices. pancakes were thin and light, almost crepe. Sweet, very good. Scrambled eggs were nicely done, hash browns just so so, sausage disappointing. $9. Coffee was good. You can get by for 2 at... More

We stopped by for breakfast and had scrambled eggs/toast/hash browns, my sister had Denver omelet. The food had no other flavor than salt - too much salt! Within an hour my legs were so swollen. Food quality is questionable, the potatoes were dry and flavorless, and they used a piece of sliced cheese as a topper to the omelet. Environment... More

On our way from Palm Springs to Tubac, Arizona and made a pass through La Quinta for a gas stop and breakfast. Our first selection (Louise's Pantry) had a line out the door and since we didn’t have the time, we moved on to another near-by breakfast spot – Bobby's Detroit Coney Island. Upon arrival, plenty of parking, no lines... More

We moved to the valley in July and our two new friends took us there. Ever since, the four of us are there at 9:45 every Sunday morning. The food is always very good. The value can not be beat. The staff and owners are very personable and make you want to go back. I love the omelets. Others in... More

As a desert visitor during the winter, it was a challenge to find a reliable and fairly priced breakfast spot that serves after 11am. This is not a one time snap shot but based upon several visits over the past couple years. Bobby's has all the basics and always a couple of weekly specials that aren't on the menu. Favorites...

I like the place a lot, but it is a bit expensive for what you get; otherwise, the food is excellent. You don't get a "deal" here.
