Diners' Choice Winners: Best Overall
McAllen's best restaurants based upon thousands of OpenTable diner reviews
This is a very nice restaurant. I loved the wine, the ribeye steak was absolutely delicious as well as the sides. Portions are very big and that’s not a complaint. I loved the light, soothing music in the background. The hostess and waitress were both very accommodating, helpful and thoughtful. There was a birthday card waiting at the table for the birthday boy. That was a very nice gesture and much appreciated. They went above and beyond to make this a pleasant experience. I highly recommend Bob’s and will definitely be back. MoreOpenTable Diner -
