The gentleman working the counter was very nice and made this better. I ordered the shrimp. They were just not very good. My friend ordered the soup and didn't like it much either. So I was not impressed with the food. The service was great.

Bobo's has coupons but they never seem to dent the bill. Don't expect savings but plan for the posted prices. The gyros is good, the burgers tasty and the fries are fresh. Inside and outdoor seating is nice. Ice cream is available too. Don't hope to be treated nicely as the staff, owner included, are not friendly. Business first is... More

This is a great local place! I love the decor. I ordered the rib tips and salad and I didn't expect the tenderness of the ribs. It's hard to place a place that the ribs are not to chewy. They also sale Homer's ice cream a great local brand. The staff was friendly and seemed happy to help you. I... More

Great ice cream joint. We took lots of photos. There was many choices of ice cream and cones. Located in a strip mall. You can try samples before purchasing.

Not so fast even when the place was fairly empty. (About the same as ordering from a waiter.) Definitely a poor imitation of Greek food. The chicken gyros was some kind of chicken lunch meat that was sliced thin and fried....reminded me of fried bologna. The "greek" salad had lots of lettuce, a few tasteless tomatoes,very little feta and Italian... More

Bo-Bo's is a 50's themed restaurant in Vernon Hill, Illinois. Jimmy Dean, Marilyn Monroe, and others decorate the walls along with cars with big fins and carhops of the past. It is just an interesting place to eat. Food is American diner specialities like burgers, fries, rib-tips, malts, ice cream treats and more. Atmosphere is just plain 50's and the... More

We ordered from Bo-Bo's in March 2013 and had food delivered the next day for a lunchtime meeting. Gus is wonderful at customer service, but the food was just average. Gus made sure that everything we ordered was there exactly on time, and he even followed up with a phone call after lunch to make sure that everything was acceptable.... More

Had been to this place last year and it wasn't bad however things were not that way today.

The owner, Gus, takes great effort in constantly improving the restaurant. The 50s decor with appropriate music is nostalgic. We love to go there alone and with the grand children. Gus has a neighborly attitude and is good with conversation served with appropriate humor. We have been going there for many years and still enjoy the fresh food, athmosphere, ice... More
