Fun atmosphere and yummy food!

My meal was DE-LISH!!! I tried the alligator poboy once and that was so good! Nice servers. Food came out quickly, though it was not busy. Almost a cracker barrel feel. Very nice.

We go here when visiting our college student. There is always a bit of a line but it goes fairly quickly. I have enjoyed the sandwiches including the spice Cajun fare. \prices are reasonable and the service good. You order and then sit down and the servers are helpful and quick out of the kitchen.

Oby's has been going a great job for years and I find myself having to have a po boy almost every time I am in the area. The muffuletta is great and I always have to have a roast beef po boy. This time, the po boy had a huge inedible chunk of fat and gristle on it and that... More

Oby's has long been one of my family's favorites when we visit Starkville. My wife likes it because of their chicken tenders of all things. The breading on the tenders is different than anywhere else. I always get the Philly cheesesteak. They have New Orleans style poboy sandwiches, and some oyster and shrimp platters. These are not top of the... More

My wife and I stop in every time we're in Starkville. Great sandwiches with great, fresh ingredients. Inexpensive. Good, fast service. Favorite place to get a club sandwich.

I'm not a big fan of cajun but their chicken reels me in everytime. Give me a big side of fries and a big Obys cup and I'm good to go on a Sunday afternoon. I wish the lines weren't so long all of the time but what can you expect from such a popular place?

Visited Starkville recently and found Oby's on Trip Advisor. Decided to look up the menu online. When I consider a local place, I always appreciate a place that has a menu online. Oby's had a full menu with prices. We decided to go. They were not very busy when we got there. You order and pay. They bring your food... More

Oby's is not just a meal, it is an experience! Great food and great atmosphere. Good Cajun cuisine. The red beans and rice are to die for!

Some of the best sandwiches you will ever eat. Honestly all the food here is really good. You want find anything you don't like. Service is very quick so don't worry about the line the is quarter mile long out the door. They will have you sitting down eating before you know it. My favorite is the chicken sandwich and... More
