Frankston is an awfully long way away from the USA – Melbourne is roughly 13,000km from Los Angeles, and that’s the closest bit of their mainland to ours – but if you’re looking for a slice of Americana in the heart of the suburb, then you’re in luck. Bobo’s Diner on the Nepean Highway are proud to present an authentic diner menu, complete with burgers and sandwiches, salads, hot dogs, steaks and fried chicken among a whole host of others. Book a table for you and your mates and make the journey to Frankston and Bobo’s Diner.
When you’re thinking of the classic American diner, there are a few things that need to come together to make it possible. There has to be great coffee, served hot and steaming to all those who enter the doors for a cup of joe; there has to be a row of booths – preferably red – to sit in and a shiny countertop to sit at if you’re in a rush and, foremost of all, there needs to be a menu that is packed with American restaurant favourites that can scratch that itch. Bobo’s Diner on Nepean Highway in Frankston has all of these and more.
Their American diner aesthetic is on point, and their menu is filled with favourites from the US of A. There are fiery wings to be shared with your mates, onion rings and mac and cheese fritters to start, plus plenty of ribs, hot dogs, burgers, parmas, steaks, hero subs and southern fried chicken with mash and gravy. Desserts are a must as well – what would the R&R Diner be without Agent Dale Cooper and his slice of pie? – so bring your biggest appetite with you when you make the move out of Melbourne and over to Bobo’s on Nepean Highway in Frankston.
The staff were so helpful with all our requests given we had a large group. Had our own birthday cake and they happily lit candles and provided plates etc without any issue. Able to split bill at the end. Thoroughly enjoyable night.
Friendly staff. The food is always amazing. The amount of food you get is awesome for the price. I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone
Great food Great service Great atmosphere Manager most obliging. More than happy to recommend to anyone who wants a relaxing night out Will be back again in the near future
Amazing staff, great food, crazy cheap! Will definitely be continuing to go back again. Was a great place to spend dinner with my family for my birthday. Thanks for the great service!
We arrived at the correct time and were seated immediately. We had our orders taken in a timely manner by courteous staff and the drinks and food were exactly as expected. Portions were large and there was no issue with us sharing a main meal. For 5 adults the bill was a little over $200, included were 8 cocktails, coffees and 1 dessert; the price was very reasonable.
Went on a weds night and had the special pot and King Parma for $20. Parma was huge, neither of us could finish it, I got 1/2 way through my wife ate about 1/3. Restaurant provided you will take away containers which allowed us to finish them off for lunch the next day. Chicken was thick and moist came with chips only. Great value. Don't bother trying the New York cheesecake presentation was good but actual cheesecake average.
Arrived at 6.30 and the place was not busy. Ordered drinks and we waited for about 15 minutes before we got them. We ordered entrees and mains. Asked if we wanted entrees first, yes please. Waiting, waiting, thought they had forgotten us. 35 minutes later our meals arrived, entrees and mains all together. Sorry!! Food was not bad but not worth the price. It is very noisy in there you have to yell to be heard. It is also a bit cramped. Would we go there again?, maybe just for the $1.00 wings, they are good. 😋
Awesome food, the owner interacts with everyone he's super nice and had chats with our crazy 4 year old who wouldn't sit still. Loved our first try here can not wait to come back! Wicked cocktail list too! Ohhhh the ribs = drool and the wings = amaz balls. Only down was asking for our drinks a few times but they were extreramlh busy
Bobo's is always a great place to visit. The food is delicious quality American fare. It was fun to go on Halloween and find all the burgers and hot dogs were created with black buns. The atmosphere is great although the music can be a little too loud to have a conversation across the table. The service is always friendly, sometimes a little slow but the food is always worth the wait.
Read good reviews about Bobo’s Diner and our group of 5 were not disappointed when we went there last night to celebrate our son’s 16th birthday. Plenty of food choices - ribs, burgers, hot dogs and even nachos. All yummy 😋 Service was really good too - and we were very happy with the half price margherita cocktails 😁
