The Best BBQ in the South

This place is amazing! I have lived in Middle Georgia for a few years now and I've tried every local BBQ restaurant around, but none are as wonderful as Fincher's. The pork is perfect, and the sauce is to die for. My kids love the regular pulled pork sandwich, and my favorite is the BBQ grilled... read more

Wow, what has happened to Fincher's BBQ that I remember from years ago. The only thing the same is the building on Houston Ave. Nothing tasted fresh or original Fincher's. The BBQ was second rate and ordinary. Not the Fincher's I remember. The sauce wasn't even the same. And the sauce is why I drove an hour to get here.... More

Another just average BBQ place in middle Georgia. I'd rather eat at Sonny's in comparison. Their sauces leave nothing to be desired, and their sides are just normal.

my husband and I were traveling through on our way to Savannah. My husband wanted bbq so I found these guys on Google. The food was very good and the staff is friendly. Seems to be a hangout for locals as everyone that came in seemed to know each other. I had the bbq plate with fries and Brunswick stew.... More

Great spur of the moment find. BBQ was delicious as was the chicken, potato salad and coleslaw. Cobbler is a must!

If you appreciate great BBQ make the time. Building needs attention but the service and food were top shelf. Daughter said everyone in here is older and they know everyone's name..... enough said. I had the BBQ plate and peach cobbler, wouldn't have changed anything. Kids had cheeseburgers and fries and were happy. Great meal.

The family did fine with their selections(pulled pork) and the service was great, however this average rating happened because they serve a turkey sandwich with cheap sliced turkey. There should have been more information before they served me this.

I can safely say this is the worst BBQ I've ever had. It may even be the worst restaurant I've ever been to. Its really dirty, the BBQ is smothered in a sweet sauce. The cole slaw was limp and watery. I had the ribs, hubby had a sandwich. Both awful.
