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.

The food here is awesome! Poboys are huge and delicious! Salads are to die for. My personal favorite is the Chicken Salad with fruit. Trust me, you can't finish one! Service is spot on. If you are a Coca Cola memorabilia collector, you MUST check this place out! The only negative thing I would say is Oby's is a little... More

Oby's has been around for a number of years in Starkville. Offers variety in its menu although it tends to be overpriced for the type and amount of food that it provides. With over 200 restaurants within the greater Starkville area, there are better choices and better priced menu items.

I've been coming here for a long time, and I absolutely love the Po Boys here. It's the bread that makes it, I think they ship it in from New Orleans. In any event, the sandwiches are great, and the Cajun roast beef and fried oyster versions are my personal favorites. Service is always excellent. Try to get here a... More

Oby's in Starkville is an institution. The first time I went to Oby's was 1990. My family moved away from the area several years ago, but we went back for a visit a few weeks ago, and it is the same Oby's as ever -- just as good. The red beans & rice are a favorite. I love the roast... More

If I could eat at Oby's every day, then I absolutely would! Each time I visit Starkville, it's on my "must do" list. This is the first place I think of when people ask me for something delicious and/or unique with an atmosphere to match. The food is fantastic - my favorite is the oyster poboy with waffle fries dipped... More

Went for a taste of authentic Southern food. The food was great and the service very friendly. The decor was very unusual - quirky without being gaudy. We even took our photo in the main parlour.

Had to bring our dog to the Mississippi State vet school and needed to grab a late lunch and kill some time. Stopped Oby's - food was really good but staff was even better

I just love their sandwiches but the shrimp poboy is BETTER than most I've had in New Orleans. Their clam chowder is absolutely the best I've ever had, hands down. The owners are careful about using the freshest ingredients. This is not fast food, it is homemade. Quaint atmosphere too. Lots of antiques.

Obys was recommended to us. You queue up at the door to place your order, then once that is done you are seated and your food comes with the server. In a college town, typically on a Saturday night, there was a lot of noise for a casual and affordable dining place. Its clean and the food is good.
