Funky Place With Good Food

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... read more

Our family ordered three different Po boys to share. We got alligator, oyster, and shrimp. They were ALL delicious and the portions were big enough that we had left overs for lunch the next day. The red beans and rice were also top notch! You cannot beat the variety and price of Oby's. Absolutely delicious!

We eat at Oby's quite often and we have always gotten great food, friendly service even when the place is busy which is almost every time we have been. We always get the alligator and it is amazing also the shrimp and oyster poboys and the red beans and rice.

Oby has Great food and a nice selection. Very family friendly with a great atmosphere. Service is friendly and quick. The food is over priced and the location is a little out of the way.

Anytime at lunch this place is packed with a line outside the door. However, it's because the food is great and the prices are well worth it. I always get the half order of chicken tenders and the breading is amazing. Waffle fries are wonderful and their sweet tea is always tasty!

I ate lunch at Oby's with retired friends. Service was slow. The food was good. Errors were made in our order but nothing drastic. Their food is always tasty. No one in our group had a problem with anything other than the long wait to be served and we went early enough that we beat the lunch crowd.

The most consistently excellent restaurant in Starkville. On this particular occasion, I had the shrimp poboy, but I usually get the creole roast beef. The fries are excellently seasoned and always crispy. We have a glut of sandwich places in Starkville, but Oby's stands apart.

I go to Oby's for a meal every single time I visit Starkville, no matter the time constraints. I really enjoy the crawfish and/or oyster poboy, and sometimes I'll get alligator. The waffle fries are great, too. This is a hip and happening place during any event in Starkville or at MSU, so be prepared to wait in a line... More

Subs and wraps are average but the appetizers are good and generous portions. The Pecan Praline Pie was great! Staff was nice and helpful. Good service but can be long line waiting to place orders.
