What can I say. They live up to their reputation. I thought all Bobby Rubino's were history so was shockingly surprised when flipping thru some touristy books to find a coupon. This coupon was actually to buy a meal, get a meal! Was seated immediately upon entering, sat opposite the bar. The place was surprisingly crowded in back for during... More

We enjoyed St Louis style baby back ribs and key lime pie = recommend trying this place if you like ribs. Atmosphere is relaxed and the decor reminded us of a decade ago. Server was great and made the experience even better. Food was prepared to our liking and very timely served. Placed this restaurant on the do-again list.

This restaurant is famous for BBQ ribs & chicken and is generally pretty good. They have been running an ad for two complete dinners for $25. You get an onion loaf as an appetizer and a choice of ribs, chicken, or a combo with potato or vegetable. It also includes one dessert to split. The bar also serves happy hour... More

Went for the advertised dinner special. Had a very attentive waiter. Dinner portions were perfect. Dinner was very good. The bar area was busy and lively. One of the bartenders did a few illusions. Very entertaining. Will return.

I am not a big ribs fan, but friends wanted to do here. No problem if you don't want ribs, there are still lots of choices. Bobby's Combo loaf was a great combination of an onion loaf with zucchini and fried mushrooms. Just try it! Big salads and large portions. Food is very good, but not great. Value is good.... More
