Went through the drive through off the recommendation from a friend - wonderful pulled pork sandwiches and hush puppies and super close to the interstate (we were traveling through to Florida from Indiana). It doesn't look like much on the outside but so worth it and WAY better than a fast food lunch!

Visited Macon on business (not much reason to go otherwise) but came across this good bbq while I was there. The location is pretty run down but the food was affordable and good...very good actually. Very popular, we made it in before the lunch rush. Nice staff, friendly service, good food-nothing fancy. FYI-Mustard based sauce.

Quaint hometown barbeque restaurant run by the Fincher family for at least 3 generations. They know everyone almost by 1st name. A great place to eat your favorites from grilled cheese to the ribs! Love the place and the food!

It doesn't get any better than this. There are lots of great places to eat in Macon.... But only one place to get good BBQ. And that's Fincher's. You can go to any of the locations- they're all great! But the original one on Houston is my favorite. You won't be disappointed by the friendly service and the consistently delicious... More

Do not recommend this place. Can't trust a BBQ place that puts the sauce on for you. Inside looked disgusting. Worst of all the sauce was mustard based not sweet southern sauce!!!

I have grown up eating Fincher's. When I moved away from Macon, I had it sent to me out of town. I love there sauce, and the pulled pork, and the ribs.

The best BBQ in Macon! My favorite is the pig special which is a BBQ on toast with slaw and tomato. Locally owned by a wonderful family!
