Taco Bell, hope of college students galore My heart is strangely warmed by your kitschy decor You grill my burritos and you make them just right Filling my belly with warm goo when I've had a hard night Even in the morning, you've got coffee for me Eggs in a taco is weird, but I won't question thee You sold me extra avocado ranch for ten cents You are what you are, without any pretense. Taco Bell, thank you for just being you. I know you're not perfect, but I must say, it's true: Bolivar Taco Bell is a great place to eat The place where love, kitsch, and tacos meet.

My favorite breakfast restaurant. Everything I've tried has been top notch.
Popular local spot, very reasonably priced greasy spoon. We went there for breakfast Saturday morning and it was packed. The bacon was perfectly cooked. I didn't have the pancakes but they looked good.
I eat breakfast at Brendas, every time I'm in town. The food is always excellent, the portions are large and the price is very reasonable. The service is tops. I highly recomment this cafe to everyone who enjoys a big healthy breakfast.

Oseyo

This is a great new restaurant. Noodles are to die for as well as the Oseyo roll. There is always a slaw type salad that comes with the meal as well as soup. Love the Miso soup. It is closed on Mondays.
NO MSG!!! If you have a delicate digestive system that Asian food often tears up, come here. Huge portions for a great price. I love the broccoli chicken, hot and sour soup, and spicy crab roll. They do not cinch in the filling on the crab rangoon. Their sushi is excellent. Try the Bolivar Roll is you're adventurous...it's giant.
Just had an epiphany in which I realized each wall of the restaurant is painted a different color to represent the four seasons. YES. Also, the BoRoll is on point today. Six stars.

I've eaten at quite a few Mexican places in the Midwest, and this is the best one by far. Incredible prices, I always walk away full, great service, and so much interesting if a bit kitschy decor. Their chips and salsa, which are complimentary, are great. If you like queso dip, definitely get theirs. Their lunch specials are a super deal, and dinner is very reasonable too.
Our very, very favorite place to eat. Great food, excellent service, they really care about their customers based on how we were treated after a recent serious illness and returned, love the entire place and everybody in it. Been going there for 15 years, never had a bad meal or a bad memory.
My biggest complaint with this place is as followed. It's REALLY NOISY! Even when its not hot very busy. Sound just echoes throughout the store. But, with that said, by far best Mexican food in town. Love it! If it wasn't for the noise, it would be a perfect 5 for Bolivar standards.

Kathy’s Pasta

329 S Main Ave
Bolivar, 65613
Reviews:
Family owned business that treats me like family. I use the back room almost every month for meetings with by BeautiControl business and my team looks forward to a great meal! Yummy food, big portions and new items on the menu!
A-OK is a pretty good descriptor for Kathy's Pasta. I was a little nervous to dine here for the holidays with some of my family members, but I ended up being fairly pleasantly surprised. Upon entry, my guard was up because Kathy's Pasta has the aesthetic value of a low-caliber Olive Garden. Over a sea of nondescript tables and past rows of jars of ornately pickled peppers that seem to be an unfortunate mainstay of Italian decor, I could see that the place was nearly empty. Cue more anxiety. The badly designed menu also featured a slew of non-Italian items, like burgers and nachos. Italian, eh?! Naturally, I became suspicious. However, everything returned to A-OKness after that point. Despite the decidedly not-authentic menu, I decided to shoot for their lasagna (which the menu boasted was an old family recipe) and a salad. When I asked for the house dressing for the latter, our painfully nice waitress said "Italian?" And I was worried she meant "You mean Kraft?" and that would be the end of it. But the dressing was actually probably my favorite part. It was a simple oil-based vinaigrette: light, bright, and definitely home-made. The salad greens were also crisp and fresh. Nice! I regained confidence after this. I wish there had been some cheese to make the salad a true winner. The lasagna was pretty good. It's definitely not much different than the lasagna my mom would have made, but it was a solid decision, and the half portion I ordered was the perfect size. I had some of my brother's garden pizza afterward, and while it also wasn't anything to rave about, the veggies were super fresh and the dough thin and crispy. We both wished there had been more sauce, though. Overall, if you find yourself locked in a situation in which you must eat in chain-happy Bolivar instead of heading back to SGF, Kathy's will probably not make you too sad inside. However, even its superior menu choices leave something to be desired.
I enjoy their food very much, but it's just a bit pricy for Bolivar, hence the three stars. I'd rather give it 3.5, but that's not an option. If you do end up going, the Bruce pizza is great. Aside from the pizzas, the menu is a bit lacking in diverse items. You will enjoy the complimentary breadsticks.

Red Apple Family Resturant

Reviews:
This restaurant gets the jon done if you are hungry but that's about it. The decorations in the restaurant are very plain, nothing fancier than a common cafeteria. The carpet (yes, carpet) is sticky on your feet, but other than that it seemed clean enough. This restaurant doesn't seem to quite know what it wants to be. The menu is pretty sloppily put together and seems to have food from most major types (Italian, American etc...). I had the cheeseburger and fries. I was surprised to find that the cheese burger itself is $6.99, and you have to pay $1.00 more for fries. I would have valued the burger I received at about $2.50. It came with no sauce and has to. They have me a single piece of the very center of the onion as a topping. The fries aren't bad though. On the other hand my wife had the patty melt and said it was one of the best she had ever had.
This place is hit and miss. Sometimes its good, and other times its not. I gave it a two star because its never great. I've never been blown away. I've only ever left this restaurant feeling like it was decent.
Ate her with friends from Bolivar, I ordered a strawberry bistro salad. Mine was good, my friend ordered a short stack of pancakes. Her's had walnuts in them. Waitress said they had a new cook, and for some reason since my salad had walnuts, the cook put them in the pancakes. Needless to say, my friend said they were horrible! Finally the owner came over, he tried to blame it on the waitress. He did take the pancakes off the ticket. Needless to say it was not a great uexperience!
