Bob’s Bar & Grill
Review by: Roadfood Team
Excellent | Worth a Detour
Bob’s is an unrepentant dive bar known for double-wide hamburgers that spread far beyond the bun that holds them. Cheese is optional. Onions and pickles come on the side.
Bob’s Bar & Grill is a little bar in a little town with big burgers. If you are a fan of burgers, Bob’s bar is an essential destination. The words “Biggest Burger” are used a lot. There are five burger joints within five miles of where I live all claiming to have the biggest burgers. None of them are even close to comparing to Bob’s. Bob’s Bar is known throughout the region for it’s huge portions.
The bar is a dive. The restrooms are as frightening as something out of Trainspotting. The rear fire exit is bolted shut. The once white (now yellow) ceiling shows no signs of ever having been cleaned. But people don’t go for the ambiance, they go for the food.
Bob’s buys their hamburger meat in huge tubes. They don’t form it into patties, they just slice the tube. The burgers are served with onion and pickles on the side. Somehow the simple combination works to create a very satisfying burger. I usually cut the burger in half so that it fits into the bun. One time, someone came in, saw my burger, and ordered a double cheese burger. The waitress laughed and assured him that a single patty was sufficient.
The sides are larger than the average person can eat. Two sides will usually satisfy a family of five. Bob’s Bar really is the home of the Big Burgers.
