Coulda been better. We were went for an early lunch and the place was already starting to get crowded on Saturday. K Bobs is worn and a bit used.Fresh and new it is not. The chicken special wasn't good. They don't know how to cook beans. The Charloin was OK. Next time we'll look elsewhere.

I have passed this restaurant for many years on 290 and decided to give it a try. The chicken fried steak was great, salad bar tremendous, and service outstanding. There is nothing fancy about it, but if you are looking for good, freshly prepared, and hot food, then this is the place when on your way to/from Houston/Austin.

We were on our way to Austin and decided to try K-Bob's since it was recommended by a local resident. The wait staff was attentive and the food was cooked to order. The dinner rolls were hot and delicious with melting butter.

On the way home from a day at Round Top. Shared the rodio rib eye. Steak very thin. Good taste, ordered it medium rare got medium well. Sweet Potato was very small. It should have been sorted out by the kitchen. Green beans very good. Salad bar looked very nice.

Flying into Houston and driving back to my in laws we were looking for a place to stop. Located right off the main highway, easy parking. Good selection of food - from catfish, chicken fried steak, burgers and a salad bar. Kids meals were good - chicken tenders, grilled cheese and sides. My burger was very good and hit the... More

K Bob's has a wide variety of food from the grill. We had a hamburger and pork chops and both were very very good!! Our waiter was very attentive and kind!

Decent food, but not outstanding by any means. Ordered 10 Oz ribeye, cut was not prime and full of fat. Sides were okay, but not spectacular.

This restaurant is just average in appearance but has really good food an reasonable prices. They offer a salad and soup bar that is very good! The location is on the highway from Houston, just after you turn to Austin. Easy parking, good food, and great salads. On a 1/10 scale, I rate them an 8.

This is a chain steakhouse, but the food is good for the price you pay. I tried the blacked catfish and it was tasty and not overcooked. My wife had a serloin that was juicy and tender. I don't know why a steakhouse wouldn't serve bread, but they don't. The service was prompt and professional.

My wife , son, and I love going to K Bob's. From Manager Juan, to the servers, it is a friendly atmosphere, family-oriented, with reasonable prices. We love the Nolan Ryan beef. On this most recent visit, we had Steaks, and Salad Bar. And, always get the Sautéed Mushrooms to accompany the steaks. Flavorful and filling. Our Son had the... More
