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.

So so if you don't want ambience. Either sit outside by cars passing by or inside at bar single seating style.. Food was good but not something I would come back for. Fries good too but place is very dirty!!!

A fantastic Macon tradition. The BBQ is freshly cooked and seasoned with homemade sauce. BBQ sandwiches, chicken and ribs all very good. Family owned and operated for 3 generations. Well worth the trip!

I went to Fincher's BBQ on a recent visit to Macon and the food was well worth the drive. The service was excellent and the staff showed great customer service to their guest. Their Brunswick Stew tasted great and their Barbeque Grilled Cheese with BBQ Pork and Melted American Cheese was great. Their sauce was excellent and I ended up... More

I was raised up eating BBQ here. I have eaten BBQ all over the country, but nobody beats my hometown favorite. They also make the best brunswick stew! We get our Thanksgiving and Christmas food here every year. I have NEVER been disappointed in the food or service. Can't make that statement about any other restaurant!

Fincher's is the best BBQ place in Georgia, Always consistent service and amazing food. If you happen to be in the area and you like BBQ you will be sad if you miss eating here. The BBQ, hamburgers and Brunswick stew are the best ever. Absolutely worth your time to stop and have a taste.

Best BBQ Ever! Why else can I say. Have enjoyed Fincher's for over 20 years and it is consistently delicious! We have also used and have purchased Fincher's for fund raisers. Jake and the rest of the crew put their heart into their Barbecue! Love it!

I have been a customer of Fincher's for over 30 years, and while I have moved away from Macon, I still make it a point to get some of their BBQ every time I visit. Excellent BBQ and Stew. I highly recommend.

I had the opportunity to recently return to Macon and made a point to visit Fincher's on Houston Avenue. It was every bit as good as it has always been. My parents first brought me to Fincher's when I was a small child and we have been eating barbecue there ever since. You can not get better or fresher barbecue... More
