We have loved the cozy neighborhood vibe and comfort food of BoB for years, and unfortunately, they just changed the menu and it is disastrous. Gone are the delicious veggie burger, pulled pork on pretzel bun, homemade chips, and mac and cheese. The menu has been replaced by strange, nonsensical items and even stranger "fried potatoes" (disaster). They were still able to find a veggie burger to serve me, and my husband got the regular burger, and both both were unremarkable and served on buns from Key Food. What a disappointment. Although the service is finally much better (cheerful and polite!) and it's lovely to sit outside on a nice evening, we will not be returning. It was, sadly, one of the most unremarkable meals I've eaten in NY.

We ordered a few burgers medium well. I showed up to pick them up and was ignored by hipster beardo staff. Finally got someone's attention and left with my food. Upon arriving home, discovered that the burgers were rare at best, and that was disturbing because they have sausage in them. Also, no pretzel buns as advertised. Instead stale brioche buns. Very disappointing. Not going back.

I Work at Juniper Galaxy 82 Bond so on Saturdays we sometimes order burgers and pick them up-They are very tasty. Lately I am going there for dinner when friends stop by my store. I only order burgers or salads and beer here-That is what appears to work best for this place. Nice beer selection on tap and the food is consistent simple and good -I think the service is fine. My only complaint would be the dude who pulls this big dog around the tables while we are eating ; that guy has no clue about training a dog!

BoB has the makings of a cool neighborhood spot. Most of the food I have had there has been solid. And it a great looking place. If they just put a little more effort into satisfying customers, it could be a great place, but that would require...ya know...effort.

The restaurant has the making of what could be a cool, eclectic little spot. But with a sparse menu, poor service, and many items already missing from the small menu to begin with, I wouldn't come here again for a meal. A lingering drink, or cup of coffee is about all this place should offer. We placed our orders at 7:10 - the meal didn't come until 8:15. And the pasta dishes were cold, and had to be returned. When asked about the dessert menu we were told they were out of everything except one thing, so "didn't want to be misleading." Good to know!

Boerum Hill needed this restaurant. The food is exceedingly decent. The atmosphere is lively and ecclectic. There's a great neighborhood vibe, though a bit snotty at times. I've enjoyed nearly every meal I've had there. I have to say some of the negative reviews below are beyond petty. They ran out of fries, and this is a BFD? Get real. The menu is limited? Don't go so often. The wait staff unable to handle small scenes? I know that's bull, I've seen them handle a huge crowd on trivia nights with aplomb. Seems likely these "guests" don't know what they have in this local treat.

This place is great to grab a drink, catch up with a friend, but starts falling apart if you're stopping in to have dinner. Yesterday, they ran out of french fries! (note everything on the menu is served with fries). Their special was Steak frites (minus the fries). They served this with a macaroni salad instead, not much of a substitute.
