I happen to be going through the area and saw this restaurant and decided to give it a try. Very glad I did, the burger was great, the fries were fresh and hot and the chocolate milk shake was addictive. I make it a point to stop here now.

We pick up lunch a few times a month. My biggest complaint is that you can't understand most things said thru the speaker. Lots and lots of times we have no idea what we need to pay until we are at the pick up window. The food is always HOT. I like that!! Luke warm doesn't do it for me.

For fast food, B-Bops is excellent. Great burgers and sides and reasonably priced. Drive through is fast and food was great. Highly recommend!

Be-Bop"s have won best hamburger in our area for several years. The meat is charbroiled and yummy. They make it to order and it is a nice place to take kids. You can eat in or they have a place outside.

Their weekend special is AWESOME! You can't beat the 99¢ quarter pounder. It is a lot like a whopper at Burger King but costs less.

I've never been disappointed at B-Bops. They have the BEST burgers around...hands down. I must admit, I don't care for their new tv ads, though.
