Have heard about this place for years and decided to try. Was not my favorite. I tried the combination platter with fries and the camp stew. I was pleased with the fries, very fresh, but the meat was not my favorite. I know a lot of people enjoy Dobbs and I am glad you have a strong following, however not... More

This place advertises that it has been in business over 100 years, should have closed years ago. Food was awful and total experience let us down. If I had gone in nasty restroom with stalls rusting down first, I'd never have made it to a table. I had a country fried steak that was tough and gristly. She had BBQ... More

This is a must stop for us whenever we are traveling through Dothan - for about 30 years now. Love the "camp" stew - I grew up calling it Brunswick stew. Nicely spiced! I had the slice pork BBQ plate which came with fries and slaw. My husband had the chopped pork BBQ sandwich with baked beans and fries. Good... More

The service was great and the folks that work there are all very nice. In that regard, it's southern hospitality at its best. The BBQ, however, was just okay - as for me I'd rate it about a 5 or 6 on a scale of 1-10. But this place is a dump - be forewarned - it's nothing like a... More

Hubby and I ordered the combo platter and made 2 meals off it. Came with fries and a iceburgh salad. Too much food for lunch but we took food home. Daughter got the chicken platter and said the pork was better. Service was quick, place is not fancy which was ok with us, waitress friendly and manager stopped by to... More

BBQ average at best - not much atmosphere and took unusually long time to be waited on and to receive our order.

The BBQ was pretty good. The menu was was not that flexible (get this or nothing). The fries was pitiful. If I go back again I would just order the meat and get my own sides.
