This is by far the Best Brunswick Stew I have ever eaten. So Flavorful and Delicious. Bar-be-que is really something to enjoy. Whether it is ribs or chopped beef and pork, this cannot be beat!

If throwing under-cooked ribs on a plate slathered in terrible bbq sauce is your idea of a good meal, them visit Dobbs. Otherwise, stay away. Not busy, early lunch. The iced unsweetened tea was good.

Dobbs is frequently packed with vehicles and one would think that means the food is good. No so. If you are looking for good BBQ in Dothan our the Southeast for that matter, this is not the place. Service is slow, the food is mediocre...More

I grabbed a pulled pork sandwich to go and they were very quick. Their pulled pork comes with sauce on it but you could still taste the smoke. Large portion for a decent price. Very friendly workers. Nothing amazing but good.
