OMG

Who would have ever thought a wonderful meal could be found in such a humble setting. You don't even know it's a restaurant because there isn't a sign. Great food served family style at a large table so you'll be sitting next to someone you never met. And they only take cash.

The food at Owens boarding house was truelly amazing! Some of the best food I've eaten so far!! The Mac n Cheese, the meatloaf and the peach cobbler! Everything was so good but these were my favourites! The atmosphere and the staff were really friendly! Would love to go back again and would definitely recommend it!

This restaurant is very unique in that everyone sits together and shares the food that comes out of the kitchen. They group you all together, so you can chat with others if you want. If you don't, you don't have to, but part of eating here is getting to know each other. They servers just keep bringing out food, and... More

The Boarding House has been a staple in Warner Robins as long as I can remember. You can pretty much always expect a crowd waiting on the next platter of fried chicken to come out. Be advised though, that after lunch you will be worthless if you have to go back to work. It's almost like a Thanksgiving meal every... More

Nice quick lunch spot after doing work on base nearby. Ingredients nothing special, but it was comfort food at it's best. Menu of the day: Fried chicken, ham, collards, black eyed peas, green beans, cabbage, macaroni & cheese, potato salad, biscuts, cornbread, sweet tea, and banana pudding for desert. Cash only though!

Owen's is a eating experience that you must put on your list to do list while in Warner Robins. The food is delicious and plentiful, and the seating arrangement makes you feel like you are around the family dinner table. A true down home Southern cooking experience. Make sure you get there early. Enjoy!

Lunch at Owens is not just fuel for the afternoon. It is a total Southern experience. Everyone sits together at one of 4 big tables and helps himself to bowls of steaming hot vegetables and meats. The fried chicken is about as perfect as it gets. Friendliness is the order of the day, from the staff there and the fellow... More

First time eating at this type of place. No menus, but plenty of great food to eat. First experience with collared greens and they were delicious. Good chicken and great mashed potatoes. The peach cobbler was amazing! All for only $8.50! This is a must if you are in Warner Robins. Not much seating so either get there before they... More

This restaurant is somewhat hard to find. I was Warner Robins for a week and finally had a chance to get here for lunch on the last day before I had to catch a plane in Atlanta. The place is only open two hours a day - - 11:00 to 1:00. When we got there it was 12:30 and guess... More

Perfectly seasoned, family atmosphere, price. Quality eating place. I would suggest this establishment to anyone, anytime. From table food to takeout, it is great.
