Decent food, and service. Interesting decor. I've eaten ribs, sandwiches, sausages and salads. I would not order sausage. Salads are boring, but work. There blueberry cornbread is AMAZING.

We moved to the area from Austin, Texas a couple of months ago and really know good from great BBQ. Robin's BBQ in Pasadena was incredible. The spare ribs had a deep pinkish smoke ring, the hot links had a just the right amount of bite and the original barbeque sauce was sublime. BT, the blueberry cornbread was the best... More

What can I say...EVERYTHING IS GOOD. The blueberry cornbread is to die for. I have eaten at Robin's for the last 10 years & done I moved away make a special trip to Pasadena just to go to Robin's. Have not had anything that was not good Service quick & friendly

I've been going to Robin's for many years and have yet to be disappointed. The place has good BBQ (okay, not as good as in da hood, but still good), and their burgers, salads, etc. are always tasty....plus you get good sized portions! I like the vibe of this place and love coming here with a big appetite.

That was our experience on Saturday night. We hit this place up 3-4 times a month but Saturday it rocked. They've been like a well oiled machine the last month or two. Sometimes a bit off in the past, never bad, but they seemed to have found a consistent groove on our recent visits. The baby back and tri tip... More

Robin's is a place that has a certain local charm but some of it is lost on me. A good restaurant needs to be consistent and it is lacking here...we have tried this place a number of times in the last year and the food and service have ranged from good to ok to less than average. The servers here... More

This came highly recommended to me and I was prepared for it to be worse than it was. I don't find many west coast BBQ eateries to be that good. That said, this was decent. AYCE rib tips for 13.99 with two sides oh and the best part...blueberry cornbread. That was actually the best part if the meal! I've had... More

Our family loves this place! It is a family friendly restaurant and the servers remember you as a regular. It has that wonderful comfortable older feel, so if you want slick and stainless steel, this is not that type of BBQ. This is authentic with a real smoker for the meats. The children love the Mac n cheese. My husband... More

Looking for a great family place? Try Robin's in Pasadena. Indulge in a shake and yes, mac ' n cheese. Plus the ribs are sooo messy, but good!
