My friends and I throughly loved our lunch and hostess. There was lots of interesting history to learn about while enjoying good food. The meatloaf, cucumber salad and casserole were awesome! Our favorite was the baked apples!

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.
