Ok. So their bbq is pretty good, but I LOVE getting the Awesome Potato with pulled or chopped pork. It's HUGE and enough for two meals. Brunswick stew is great. .. the peach cobbler sadly, is not.

I have been driving on interstate by this place for years and always thought about trying it. Glad it took me so long as the food was terrible. If you want a big plate, then this place is for you, as the food was plentiful, just not good tasting. We got the rib, brisket, and pork platter, with onion rings... More

We have driven by OB's for years and decided to try it. The pork had a good smoke flavor but it was dry. The sauce was great and saved the meat. We bought a quart of the mild to take home. The slaw was chopped within an inch of its life and a bit sweet. The green beans were mushy... More

Got off of I-75 to get some bar-b-q on our way back to Ft. Myers. We were greeted and our waitress arrived right away. We were in a booth and I was next to the wall so I had a good view of the grease and grime-yuck! The whole place could use a real good cleaning. I grew up in... More

Have eaten lunch here. Usually get the pulled pork sandwich and eat it with knife and fork because it can get a little messy as a sandwich. I don't understand the difference in cost for pulled as opposed to chopped pork, but pulled is definitely the way to go.

Traveling through and read the reviews on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. Rustic restaurant with good service. We ordered the ribs which were ok but not as tender as we had hoped and the pulled pork which was a better choice. Really liked the Brunswick stew but both the fried pickles and fried okra were too... More

Stoped here on the way back home to Miami from Atlanta and wanted to try some real BBQ and I was not disappointed. The portions are enough to split to be careful or you wind up with the meat sweats.

I was in McDonough for a month on business, and figured I'd give this place a try....well I'm sure glad I did! The BBQ was excellent! The service was great also. I liked it so much that I went back several times while I was down there. I also tried their catfish, it was also delicious! All in all great... More

We ate at OB's during Memorial Day weekend. The atmosphere is rustic and relaxing. Just what you would expect from a BBQ Joint in Georgia. The wait staff was very nice and made us feel right at home. The Sweet Tea, BBQ and the Brunswick Stew was out of this word. If you are in the area, I would definitely... More
