Favorite place my uncle and I would come in and order the ribs combo. Can't go wrong! The meat you have to eat it with a fork it falls right off the bone. Old fashion type BBQ style

We had the coupon for 2 dinners for $20. Our waitress, Bennett, was courteous and prompt. Delicious ribs and chicken. The value of the dinner was $50 so we gave her a generous tip.

Sorry, but wasn't happy with my visit to Bobby Rubinos. Service took forever, and my food was delivered cold. Don't think I'll be back.

We took friends here for dinner. This place has been around for many years and we haven't visited for at least 20. We began with their famous onion ring loaf. It was good but greasier than I remembered. We all had ribs. The dinner portion...More
