The worst BBQ sandwich I have ever had. It was supposed to be chipped. It was shredded pork in a bland, watery, tomato based bbq sauce on a bun. No pickles, no slaw and more bread than meat. It tasted like wet bread.

The ribs were good just a bit dry. Side salads just average nothing special. But would go again Great family place

Not thrilled with their menu but for the price, it's definitely a decent bbq place. Many of the locals love it, so I'd say it's worth the visit.

Stopped here for lunch on the way from Georgia to Florida because the parking lot was full. Decided it must be a nice place to eat. We were seated immediately although the place was crowded. Our server took our order and it seemed like a LONG time before we got served - slow average service. We had the chipped pulled... More

Locally proclaimed as the best BBQ in the world. It is on a main highway near a busy intersection so always busy. Take out a pound or 2, you'll be glad you did.

Traveling between Atlanta and Florida without the benefit of our RV we were looking for something to eat other than fast food that had take out. We had 4 dogs in the car! We were happy to find Dobbs. The place was packed but they had a "take out" area that was pretty quick. The plates we got were good,... More

Everyone seems to love this place. I don't get it! Service was awful and the food was mediocre. It definitely didn't make me want to come back anytime soon! Not sure what all the hype is about!

From the moment we walked in, my friend and I both had the feeling we should turn and walk out. Was it the awkward stares from locals who occupied the only TWO tables that were occupied on a Saturday night at 7pm? Was it the conversation we overheard between a waitress and customers at a table close by that repulsed... More

This place must be living off of it's 100 year old reputation. Went for lunch today with the family on the way to the beach. Food was not good and restaurant was not clean. Spend your $$$ elsewhere.

The servers were very friendly, attentive,and never let our glasses get less than half full. My husband didn't get halfway through his salad and our food came:) I was also happy to see a good variety of food for picky eaters like my son and myself and that they allowed various changes to the dishes without charging for them (our...
