New Orleans without the humidity.

You want a taste of New Orleans without haveing to drive all the way there. Then Oby's is the restaurant for you. Great food, great service, excellent atmosphere.

I will never visit the Starkville location again. I found a long black hair in my food and never got an apology or anything for it. I would not recommend this restaurant.

If you like good food and great service, then this is your place. Salads, poboy sandwiches, soup, red beans and rice, and desert. You won't be disappointed.

We had friends suggest that we eat here. I did not care for my dinner selection ~ it was just ok. I ordered a Cuban panini. My son ordered a shrimp po'boy and said it was just ok. The atmosphere was good, but the food was mediocre.

One of my faves--the restaurant has a kind of New Orleans flare. However, the food is varied enough there is something for everyone. You walk in and stand in line to order. You move down and get your drinks. (They are in my top 3 for their sweet tea). Then, you find a booth or table. The staff will bring... More

My father in law lives by the po boys. I enjoy the rotel fries, the sea food pasta, and several of the sandwiches. Good gumbo. Not fancy or fine dining, but good every day food.

My first trip to Oby's! I had the alligator po boy and jambalaya! Both were great! Some of the best jambalaya I've ever had! Service was great. Sunday's are very busy but it looks like 2:30-3:30pm is the best time.

My wife and I ate here a couple of days ago with our daughter and her family visiting from Chicago. It's significant, I think, that any time our grown children visit from out of town they always choose to eat one of their meals at Oby's. Our daughter has two young children (3 and 5), and they were excited by... More
