    Terrible lunch buffet!

    Buffet $7.99....could only eat the okra and crackers! Fried chicken was cold and greasy, only thighs, BBQ was skimpy, waterey and tasteless. Veggies were run of the meal, mashed potatoes were instant, but worst of all was the cold, stale, hard as a rock dinner rolls. I will say the tea was good. I expected more from an established eatery, but I was really disappointed on this place. $10.00 totally wasted!

    I love Bob's homemade pimento cheese. Try it grilled, all gooey and melty with a fresh side of the day. It is delicious.

    Delicious BBQ

    The pulled pork BBQ at Bob-B-Q is delicious. I have had it several times and it always pleases me whether it is on a sandwich or on a plate with sides.
