I think I am warming up to this place

FOOD -- Honestly, the times I've been forced to eat here with my in-laws I've never been overly impressed. I had considered most everything I had tried average or below. I was recently there, with the in-laws again, and I had the pork plate and Brunswick stew along with mac and cheese and fries... read more

Good barbecue and sides, nice portions, pleasant decor. Quite large selection for a barbecue place. Prices about average.

The BBQ and sides (beans, baked sweet potato, fried green tomatoes) were good--nothing outstanding, but good. The portions were plentiful. The place does need some cleaning up, but we enjoyed our dinner there.

OB's is by far the best BBQ in town. There are other BBQ places closer to my home, but I prefer to drive here. The staff is friendly and courteous and the Brunswick Stew and BBQ plates are to die for. And the portions are large enough that we always have leftovers. My husband orders the Catfish and loves it.

Very bad service, The place only had a handful of customers, but we had to wait to be seated, wait for order to be taken. Never checked on during meal. Had to ask for check. The tables, condiment dispensers, floor dirty and sticky. Vacuums and mops were just lying around randomly. Our food was cold.

OB's is a great place to get bbq that is done right. The food is always good and the service is wonderful. Always end up taking some home due to the large portions. 2 of my favorites are the Fried Green Tomatoes and the AWESOME sweet tea. I know you won't be disappointed if you try them.

I rated this one of the best meals because we have eaten A LOT of BBQ and this to us was some of the best! We stopped on our way from GA to TN (lunch) and again back to GA from TN (dinner) because it was so good! Got pulled pork sandwiches, fries, slaw, beans and of course my sweet... More

We stopped by for dinner on our way back to Savannah. The pulled pork was good and the smoked chicken was very delicious. The sides were ok. The service was fast and friendly. Overall it was fine. Much better than any bbq I've had in savannah ga.

The service and the food was cold and flavorless. The sweet tea however was good. We felt like we wasted calories and time off our life.

My husband and kids and myself have been dining with OBs since 1994. We always stop on the way to and from Florida and have even driven to south Atlanta to dine a time or two even when we were not going south. What a disappointment it was to visit today for lunch on our way back from St. Pete... More
