Best fried chicken ever

Although not a healthy meal, it is some of the best tasting southern cooking I've had. Their BBQ pork isn't smoked, but the seasoning is awesome. Their banana pudding is outstanding also.

You sit down at long tables with people you don't know (yet). Fried chicken and biscuits every day. The other meat varies/ Lots of veggies . Dessert will be peach cobbler or banana pudding. Sweet tea served in huge glasses. You will NOT leave hungry. Come early...lunch only. Building is not marked but surrounded by cars

You can't beat the prices for all the amount of food choices you receive. It gets crowded quickly so you must get in there on time right when they open or you might not get a seat. They serve authentic homestyle cooking and the fried chicken and peach cobbler is to die for!

Been going here for years, and the food is always good! Some people don't like sitting next to strangers and passing the bowls of food, but it doesn't bother us at all. We've met some very nice people! Everything is hot, fresh and delicious!

I've never eaten at any place like Owens. At lunch they have two seatings; 11:00 and roughly noon. Get there late and you may not eat. Everyone is seated around a couple of big tables, family style so you may or may not know the person next to you. Introduce yourself and make a new friend. The food is simply... More

The food was really good! Too tasty! I wanted more and more! The macaroni and cheese was amazing. The cobbler was great too. The atmosphere is very welcoming. You sit at the same table with strangers and eat the food family style. I like it! Just know it's cash only.

Maybe the best fried chicken I have ever had. I am not a big cobbler fan, but the crust was tasty. It was like being at your grandma's. Location and building might appear not so good, food was good though.

Ate here with some colleagues from work. It was my first and only visit. The food was fine, typically southern, as you can read from other reviewers. The thing that stands out from my experience is the church dinner-type setting. You sit with strangers at long tables. If you're the shy type, as I am, then this may make for... More

This is Warner Robins best keep secret. Great southern style food in a family style atmosphere. They are only open for a short period starting at 11am. You better be there at 10:45 waiting because it will fill up fast once the doors are open.

You have to get there early for lunch (I mean before 1100) or you;ll be waiting in line or all the good food will be picked over! This is a place you can only visit every once in awhile as you;ll walk away so full the rest of your day will be hazy. Great southern style food served family style........... More
