The breakfast here is good and very reasonably priced. Normal diner type menu. But, the service was very fast and its clearly where the locals go for breakfast. The extra bustle always makes the food taste better.

So I go in for breakfast and ask a perfect test question 'which is better the pancakes or French toast? My waitress says 'they're both good so have half of each.' I take her up on it and find out she was right! Both were great. If you want authentic old diner food, go!

Have been coming here forever. A few years ago, ownership changed and they had a tough time living up to their reputation. Happy to say things are going better now. Maybe because they got back to the basics that made this place successful. If you have been away for a while because of disappointment t since the ownership change, I... More

Bobby's has an ethereal feel to it. The service workers are polite,competent,and professional. Even though the seating is extremely limited,it is certainly worth the wait. I eat at this folksy diner almost daily. Mike S.
