I have always had a great experience when I have been to Oby's!! It is located across from Starkville Academy on Academy Rd. They have been in business for a long time! I love their Shrimp Po boys!

I remember eating here almost 30 years ago and its still one of, if not the best option in town. The bread on the sandwiches is always fresh and in a town full of sandwich shops you will not beat an Oby's po-boy. They are all so good its hard to pick a favorite. Their salads are huge and also...

I was lucky enough to have a friend that knew about Oby's. The roast beef po-boy was great with good crusty and toasty bread. I was there at the height of lunch hour and the service was still fast and courteous. I hope I have to go back to Starkville again soon so I can go back and try some... More

It had been several years since I had been to Oby's, but we went because of friends. It was great! They have a great selection of poboys and deserts. I can't wait to go back!

I have been to Oby's in Starkville with my wife several times now, and I don't think we'll be returning. It's not that it's bad. It's fine. But it's nothing special at all. I'm very surprised to see it rated so highly. Every time we've been there, something has been lacking. Cold fries or cold soup, maybe an item forgotten... More

This is one of my and my husband's favorite places to eat in Starkville. 5 years and I have yet to have a single bad dish or experience. Any time we have out-of-town visitors, someone requests Oby's.

A Starkville institution since 1976, Oby's is a casual fun spot for lunch or dinner. The menu is slanted toward quickly prepared sandwiches and similar items, all prepared in a distinctly cajun style. The diverse menu has something to please everyone, but many customers keep coming back for the whimsical decor. Interesting and unusual objects and signage cover the walls... More

This is a great sandwich, salad plus American/Cajun restaurant.There is a choice for every tastebud. I had the muffalata and it was excellent and had great Cajun taste. I would have liked a different bun but don't know if that was an option. The rest of the table had the BLT and all was fantastic.Catfish looked very appetizing but since... More

My wife and I drove to Starkville to eat at Oby's. We have eaten there many times and the food is consistently good. It has a great casual atmosphere with many old signs on the walls. We had a strawberry salad with special dressing made in house and an oyster poboy. It was all delicious. If you are visiting Starkville... More
