Bobby Jo’s American Diner restaurant review, Southend on Sea, Essex

This diner opened in February 2010, so we quickly tried it out, keen to find a local diner. The restaurant has been fitted out really nicely, with booths and a great pink colour scheme and the waitresses have cute 1950’s uniforms, so it is in keeping with the theme. There is also some memorabilia dotted about and question and answer cards on each table about different celebrities from the 50’s.

The menu is typical diner style and we ordered a hotdog, plain burger, chips and jalapenos, but I have to say that it was disappointing. Maybe we have been spoilt with gourmet burgers, but the hotdog was pretty average and the burger bland. The chips looked good, but were undercooked a little, so we only ate about half our meal. The star of the meal was my banana malted milkshake, which was made with fresh banana (as are all of their milkshakes) and it was absolutely lovely!

I am not sure if we will be back, but if we do, perhaps we would try the ribs or chicken….
