This is a hard-core pub - it pretends nothing else and make no apology. The bar-tender is a great guy (I think owner). What truly amazes though is the food - some of the best food I've ever eaten. The Philly cheesesteak is truly excellent - easily the best philly I've ever eaten - and I've had a lot -... More

We met friends here one evening, because we’ve always had good experiences here with both food and service. After starting off with a bowl of queso, we got a very excellent taco pizza. The ingredients were masterfully put together, and every bite was filled with cheesy heaven. While the food was good, the service wasn’t up to their usual standards,... More

Just remember, this is a bar first, then a cafe. It took over an hour to get our food on a Sunday afternoon and all we ordered was a large pizza. There was only one waitress on duty at the time, but it wasn't crowded at all. If you have an allergy or dislike for smoke, don't sit on the... More

They have a great beer list, although on the 101 list about a third are out of stock and may not ever be. We go there at least weekly for lunch. If you are looking for a dive bar with bar food then go here. If you want steak and great wine I would look elsewhere.

My fiancée and I were looking for a good burger for the evening, and we decided this was the place to go. Prior to meeting each other, we’d both been here a few times, so we knew the level of quality we’d be getting. She had the regular burger, and I the cheeseburger, both of which were juicy and delicious.... More

This is a place I’d been many times to have a drink or watch a band, but I’d never actually eaten a meal there. Since my friend liked the burgers here, she recommended we go. I got a nice juicy cheeseburger which was delicious. The fries were okay, but my friend liked the fries a lot, so she grabbed some... More

BB Rover's is one of the places we go when we want a beer at lunch. The burgers are the best food on the menu in our opinion. Breakfast/brunch items are good. Good selection of beer. Good service. Recommended.

One of our favorite spots for brunch! Naomi is an awesome waitress if you go on Sunday afternoon. Rovers features a ton of beer and had multiple TVs if you want to watch a game. It still has an old timey pub feel though, which is great!

BB Rover's is a great place to wind down, enjoy conversation with a friend, and have dinner. Very casual and comfortable inside or outside on the patio. Food is good and the beer selection (local and international) is great! Some nights they have music, but there are several rooms and tables outside so you can still find a quiet spot... More

My friend was playing a concern here, so that was the reason I was here tonight. I used to frequent this place when I lived over on this side of town. It has good pizza, burgers, and other grill items. The beer selection was always good. And I was glad to see that had continued. The layout is nice, so... More
