dolfinfan - Yes, that kid sure had a lot of energy! I haven't seen him lately. But there has been someone dressed like the Statue of Liberty by the entrance to Winn-Dixie luring the people to Liberty Tax Services. I swear that kid is listening to the same radio station we usually have on ... Cat Country (country station out of Pensacola) .... same beat, etc. :lol:

Every time we drove by that kid my wife would marvel at his energy and wonder how many calories he burned a day!
Last summer when it was extremely hot Dale and I would pull over to the side of the road and hand him several bottles of water. This is a great kid and we honk everytime we pass by him.

I am going going to miss seeing that kid. He had such enthusiasm & energy. P'kid don't feel bad. Being from "Arkansas I might have called it Billy Bob's also.

ARshrek,

When I wrote the thread, Billy did not seem correct to me but.....I had other things on my mind and people were going to know what I meant anyway.

We used to worry about him having a stroke! We'd be coming back from a long day at the beach and he'd be red, soaked in sweat and still dancing like there was no tomorrow.. hope he found something he loves to do, inside! :wink:

Tracy - Where is the outdoor seating? On the west side, or in front? I know they used to have a deck on the west side when it was called Toby's, but I haven't noticed anyone out there or even if the deck is still there.

I thought it was an oriental buffet, but hear it has a mix of mediteranian, american, asian, etc. Haven't eaten there, but it's on my bucket list.

No review at this time ... maybe Pete's been there.
This was the first place our family ate at when we made our first trip to Navarre beach. My wife had crawfish for the first time there and my son had shrimp for the first time.
April 2009 was our first trip to Navarre. We would like to visit several times a year but alas we cannot. Can only afford every other year.

Then Bayou Bob's probably has some very special meaning to you and your family.

Yes it does, we will have to find another local place to stop after our drive this year.

We had stopped there because of reading this forum.
