To savor the food at Cheeseburger Bobby's is a real treat, especially the homemade hamburgers and the frozen custard—creamier than ice cream.
In 2007, the first Cheeseburger Bobby's was opened in Hiram by brothers Richard and Bob Stoll. Now there are five locations with two more coming—all in Georgia. Besides Hiram, Cheeseburger Bobby's can be found in Canton, Flowery Branch, John's Creek and Marietta with additional stores coming to Acworth and Dawsonville.
In February 2008, the Stoll brothers sold their Stevi B's Pizza Restaurants to Atlanta-based Argonne Capital Group. At that time, Stevi B's had 28 restaurants in seven Southeast and Midwest states, including one in Hiram next to Kmart. Now Stevi B's is in eight states with 40 restaurants. The Stoll brothers founded Stevi B's in 1996 to provide "the ultimate pizza buffet" in an alcohol-free, smoke-free environment.
Back to Cheeseburger Bobby's, their all-beef burgers are never frozen and hand patted. Cheese options include American, Swiss or cheddar. At the "Build Your Own Burger Bar," you can add lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles, relish and condiments, including A-1 sauce.
Cheeseburger Bobby's also prepares all-beef hot dogs, veggie burgers, chicken sandwiches and fresh-cut French fries and onion rings. The kids’ menu has cheeseburgers, grilled cheese sandwiches, chicken tenders and hot dogs.
The frozen vanilla custard can be blended with a variety of toppings. Vanilla, chocolate and strawberry shakes are served as well as Coca-Cola products and freshly brewed sweetened and unsweetened iced tea.
When I stopped by Monday evening, I was pleasantly surprised when a server stopped by my table to offer me a mint as she made her way from table to table.
The price is an even $8 for a cheeseburger, fries and drink. For $2, you can order a frozen custard sundae with Oreo, Reese's Peanut Butter or strawberry toppings.
On Monday and Tuesdays from 5 to 9 p.m., children eat for 99 cents with each adult entree.
