Hot and crunchy fish and chips in a vintage mom and pop take-out joint.. The Scene
Bob's peeling paint, flickering fluorescent lights and its location along a somewhat seedy stretch of Central Avenue, belie the pure, honest home cooking and friendly service dished out through the take-out window. Though it still looks like the drive-in it used to be, Bob's is now strictly counter service only. Eat in your car or sit at the picnic tables.
The menu offers an array of juicy burgers available with several combinations of green chile, cheese and fixings like tomato, lettuce, pickles and onions. The regular and foot-long hot dogs have firm meat, squishy buns and a profusion of chile and cheese on top. But it's Bob's namesake fish that'll keep you coming back. Thin strips of mild, firm pollock are cut into little planks and breaded with Bob's spicy, salty, secret recipe and fried to a crispy delight. For a real nostalgic treat, substitute tater tots for the fries.
