Thank you for a wonderful hotel manager, for sending us to this wonderful, neighborhood favorite. My husband and I had to force ourselves from not finishing the HUGE blueberry and apple pancakes we ordered. Absolutely old-school delicious! Coffee was delicious and service with a big smile. There's nothing fancy or frivolous in this restaurant, but there's pride in making their... More

This place made us smile, reminding us of the dives we used to eat breakfast at when we were in college. We sat at the counter which was fun and were served by what looked to be 3 generations a of family. The food was good fresh and plentiful The motif scruffy, and the prices right. Enjoy yourself, just don't... More

Can be a little difficult to get in here sometimes, but that is because it is so popular. The food is very good and the portion sizes are huge!!

This is a local place that's open 7-days a week for breakfast and lunch. Service is very friendly and the food very good. It's not fancy, and prices are reasonable. It's a great place for breakfast.

We went to this restaurant two mornings in a row, it was that good! The location of this restaurant is not in the greatest area but the staff is awesome and everyone is really friendly. The food is more than generous and very reasonable. I tried the apple pancakes the first day based on reviews I read on yelp. It... More

My partner had French toast, eggs and meat and I had eggs, bacon, sausage and a gigantic pancake with pecans. Yummy! This place is an iconic throw back to the... More

Found this on my phone, looking for a good breakfast near where we were staying. This restaurant is nothing fancy but it seems a lot of the folks there were regulars. Servers were polite and friendly. I had a pancake with eggs and crisp bacon and Nancy had biscuit gravy. Bacon was really crisp and coffee was great. Normally don't... More

We had to wait a few minutes to get a seat in Bobo's on a Sunday morning, but it was worth it. Great little diner. Service good, quick, and friendly. Coffee cup is always full with good basic coffee. The banana pancake is incredible. It was delicious and would have fed our entire table of 4. However, the rest of... More

Went on while on Vacation, stopped in with my family. Had to wait about 15 mins for a table....no problem. 15 mins later...good to go. Service very friendly and quick.....food....soooo good. My kids loved everything....we loved everything....in fact. We are going back tomorrow for Breakfast on our way back home. One of our all time favorites after just one visit.
