BOB.Q is one of my favorite restaurants on The Loop—the prices aren’t too high for a dinner and they have great options for both those who want meat and those looking for a vegetarian tofu option. Rice bowls are the main dishes on the menu, complete with white rice, lettuce, and your protein of choice. For your beef, chicken, pork, or tofu, you have the option for a non-spicy seasoning, a sweet and spicy glaze, or half and half—all are great! If you want an additional snack, the potstickers are a great option! 

BOB.Q is also one of the closest restaurants to campus, a short walk from the overpass in case you need a quicker meal. Inside, check out the artwork on the walls, an eclectic mix of mostly black and white doodles that make your meal at BOB.Q even more worth it.
