It's in the same strip mall area as Rockefeller's Grill and the Giant Eagle on McKees Rocks Road. Bob's sign is just an orange 'DINER' sign.
When we arrived, we weren't sure if we should just take a seat or wait to be seated. We ended up taking a seat, but I think you are supposed to wait to be seated. Oops.
There's not much to the decor, but this is a diner. You're not there for cutesy or trendy decor, you're there for some tasty breakfast fare. I ordered some decaf coffee to warm up and SP had iced tea. I decided on my usual diner breakfast: a breakfast sandwich. Bob's is on Mancini's Bread - yum!!! I chose bacon.SP ordered the Bountiful Breakfast and chose scrambled eggs and sausage.We split a piece of French Toast.The staff is friendly. Bob was there. He was going around saying hello to customers and helping clear tables. A very nice guy!
We both enjoyed our breakfasts. My breakfast sandwich was not too greasy, which was nice. We'll definitely be back. It was a great way to fuel up before heading out in the snow flurries on errands, including trips to Sarris Candies and to the mall (thankfully the mall gods smiled on us and we found a parking space close to the entrance!). I found a very nice protective case for Elf.
And yes, I was the one who dropped Elf on the table at Bob's when I was trying to take photos of the menu. Oops. The strap was around my wrist, but I wasn't holding Elf high enough when he slipped out of my hands and hit the table. He's a slippery little guy, even in my small hands.
Last night was a quick dinner night. We had hoagies. SP bought a multi-grain baguette:He also bought rosemary ham, provolone, and tomatoes. I whipped up a 'sauce' of olive oil and red wine vinegar with black pepper, oregano, and parsley. It was 2 tsp olive oil and 1 tsp red wine vinegar. Delicious, crunchy hoagies.After hoagies, we watched Night At the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian. It was OK. Not as good as the first Night At the Museum.
