If you're in the area (and even if you're not) be sure to stop in to Cal-Bob's! The best BBQ and salads I've tasted ever! Great service as well! You just can't be disappointed!

Cal-Bob serves up a great plate of bbq. The cilantro coleslaw is awesome! A very good rich and thick bbq sauce. Gotta try the pork ribs! Very clean & cozy with excellent "down home" service!

The meat was smoked and tasted great. Even the smoked turkey was yummy. The sides were great too. The owner and family were very friendly.

The brisket I had was pretty tender, but the flavor was just ok and lacking something. I didn't like the sausage. The German potato salad was good. The deserts were mediocre. It's probably the best place in Kerrville and definitely better than Buzzies, but I've...More

First, The food is great at Cal-Bobs. But it's not only food that makes a restaurant a place you want to go to again and again. As I mentioned in a previous review, the location is not so great...it's out of the way and somehow...More
