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.
