This is the place to eat while in Lynchburg. It was all you can eat, and as I said in the title, the best fried okra I've ever eaten. We also had turkey & dressing, ham, mac and cheese, fried apples, green beans, yeast rolls,...More

Yes you can book now for October, the sooner you book the more times options you'll have. No you do not have to do the Jack Daniels tour. We did the morning tour of the distillery (9:30 I believe) and Mary Bobo's at 1:00 if... More

No you cannot eat that late. Miss Bobo's serves two times a day. At 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM. And again I would suggest you get a reservation.

No Lynchburg visit is complete until you’ve enjoyed a meal at Miss Mary Bobo’s Restaurant, where every dish is served with a warm Tennessee welcome and a heaping side of friendly conversation. Pull up a chair and join us at the table for a family-style dining experience unlike any other. Dinner is served family-style Monday through Saturday throughout the mid-day. Closed on Sunday and all major holidays. Reservations are required.
