Editorial Review of Sakebob Japanese Bar & Grill
Rolling up its finest fish, Sakebob Japanese Bar & Grill does sushi the way it's supposed to be done.
Sitting in between a custard shop and a socks outlet, this restaurant stands out with its black and red exterior. You have a choice of sitting either at regular four-top tables, or elevated tables equipped with the means for cooking your own Shabu Shabu where you sit.
This restaurant redefines the suburban dining experience with its sleek and soothing blue and gold exterior, its excellent (but not overbearing) service and sushi that reminds us that food should not be devoured, but savored.
Among the traditional sushi rolls like tuna, salmon, and crab you will find one-of-a-kind rolls with funky names like the Playboy roll (spicy tuna, avocado, crab meat and soybean paper), the Las Vegas roll (crab meat, eel, cream cheese and deep fried avocado) and the sexy, spicy Nude roll (spicy salmon, cream cheese, avocado, and tuna with salmon on top).
One order of rolls is enough for two to share, so grab a date and give the Kiss & Love roll (salmon, avocado, crab meat and albacore) a run for its money.

I LOVE ...
. . . Sakebob BBQ Japanese Bar & Grill [6210 W. 159th St., Oak Forest]. The food is great and the owners are friendly and fun. The picture wall of fame is a blast.

Hungry? We have you covered.
SAKEBOB BBQ JAPANESE BAR & GRILL - 6210 W. 159th St., Oak Forest, (708) 926-9943; 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for lunch and 4 to 10 p.m. for dinner Mondays to Fridays, noon to 10 p.m. Saturdays and 4 to 9 p.m. Sundays. All major credit cards are accepted. The learning experience of the culture infused with the MTV2-type music in the background (that you don't really notice, but bob your head to) makes for a great environment. With a name like the Playboy Roll, how can it not be the main attraction? In addition to this popular dish, the menu features the "orgasm roll," the "super Viagra roll" and more Japanese cuisine with a serious kick, jab and punch. - Shenequa A. Golding

Sakebob located at the corner of Rob Roy and 159th street opened up Monday night.
We ate there last night and all I have to say is if you love sushi you need check out SakeBobs. The fish was extremely fresh and the service was outstanding.

Had an awesome time there. Food was excellent, drinks were flowing, polite and laid back place. If you are unsure of anything on the menu, just ask the waitress, they are all nice
In a nutshell: Between the managerial induced sake bombs, and the sinus-cleansing wasabi, Sakebob BBQ Japanese Bar & Grill - which is named after the drink (Sake for the alcohol and Bob for the Beer also used in the Sake Bomb) is hands-down, the best restaurant that could have spiced up Oak Forest. With names for sushi such as "orgasm roll" and my favorite "super Viagra roll," you can't go wrong. The learning experience of the culture infused with the MTV2-type music in the background (that you don't really notice but bob your head to) makes for a great environment.
