We stopped on a Sunday for lunch. Place was really busy, orders still came out in a timely manner and the food was really good.

I grew up on these hot dogs, and they are a real treat when I get home to visit. Onion rings, cheese balls and chicken are all great too, but you have not lived until you have tried a bob's dog with the works.

I had heard a lot about this place so wanted to stop in my way thru town. It was ok if you are looking for a tavern or corn dogs. I was really hoping for a burger but here weren't on the menu.

This is a good restaurant if your in a hurry, they get you your food quick, but the taste does not suffer for it. The hotdogs are always perfectly crisp and you can hear them snap when you take your first bite. I'm a big fan of the chicken strips and milkshake. I don't suggest coming during the busy hours...

A must stop! Fast service. Clean! Friendly staff-friendly customers told us you can order inside and find a place to sit or order outside. Best tavern EVER!

I live here and this is the place to go for the hot dogs and taverns. All the food is excellent, including their chicken and fish sandwiches. Always busy, and fast to get your food. And you have to have a malt or float or ice cream to finish your meal! The employees are nice and friendly, and get your... More

Bob's has food for everyone's likes. Great service (generally kids working the summer and it a 1st job for them, but they are all very sweet kids. And they have their full time staff there also, some of which have been there for years). But their hot dogs with everything are very good, the fries and onion rings are yummy.... More

Was told by locals this is a must in Le Mars! Hot dogs were very good! Atmosphere is nice. We went at lunch time and it was very busy but didn't have to wait long. If in the area, check it out. You will not be disappointed.

The Bob dog, tavern, malts, and shakes can't be beat for a fast food place. We buy the Bob dogs, freeze them, and take them to KC to our son who grew up in LeMars! You can take the kid out of LeMars but he will always want the Bob dogs!

Thank Jim and Dorothy K
