After reading reviews, we drove to Cal Bob's. No one was in the parking lot, so we almost left. We discovered they do mostly catering, but serve the public as well. The meats were wonderful and the sides were homemade!

Ate at Cal-Bobs tonight. I went in looking forward to their great smoked Salmon that they serve Friday and Saturday evening. I instead ordered their smoked beef enchiladas. They were great! Hoping they'll put them on their regular menu...
