A great place to stop if in the area. The burgers were very good. We were coming off the Appalachian trail, just a short ride. I cannot wait to go back. Tasted like the old time burgers from when I was a kid. Great stuff.

Yummy burger and crispy hot fries. Friendly staff. Funny signs hanging inside. I recommend Bobs if you're craving an "All American" meal.

We don't live far from here, but we love stopping for the old fashioned milkshakes or a cheeseburger after a day spent hiking on nearby Roan Mountain. This place is also close to the Appalachian trail crossing.

Bob's never disappoints. Stopped in for some breakfast on our way up to Carver's Gap for a little hike on the Appalachian Trail. I recommend the French toast.
