Miss Mary Bobo’s Boarding House

Reviews:
We had been to Lynchburg earlier this year to tour the Jack Daniels Distillery, and our tour guide told us all about Miss Mary Bobo's. We went back a few months later specifically to eat here based on his review. You definitely need to make a reservation in advance as walk-in spots are limited, but it's worth planning in advance. My husband and I were seating at a table with a group of ladies in town for a bachelorette party weekend along with our hostess. The family style is part of what makes it such a neat experience! These women were from all over the place, and we were the only TN natives... It was interesting getting to talk with others and share recommendations of things they should do while they were in town. Many people don't like sitting with strangers, but I say have fun with it! The food is AMAZING southern fare. The hostess does a great job of explaining the history of Miss Mary's, the town, and Jack Daniels. While we didn't do it on the same day as our Jack tour, I'd recommend combining both into a single day if possible. Lynchburg is such a fun little gem in TN!
Before a recent trip to the Jack Daniel's Distillery, my mother-in-law proclaimed that we were not allowed to visit Lynchburg, Tennessee without visiting Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House for lunch. She's never steered me wrong, and she definitely didn't with this suggestion. Even though others have mentioned, I feel it's pretty important to repeat this fact about this lunch destination: Make a reservation. You probably won't get to experience this feast without one. That being said, once you make that reservation, attempt to arrive a little early. The lunch bell rings right on time! When you check in, you are assigned to a particular dining room. Once the bell rings, you'll follow your hostess where you'll sit at a large table with other parties. I'll admit - I found this to be a little awkward, but I'm wondering if that may be because our fellow diners seemed to be fascinated by the fact that my husband and I were the youngest patrons. Similar to eating at grandma's house, the meal is served family style. Our lunch included pastry chicken, ribs, hashbrown casserole, fried okra, black eyed peas, collard greens, cornbread, and their famous Jack Daniel's apples. Be sure to save room for the dessert! On my visit, the dessert of the day was chess pie with Jack Daniel's spiked whipped cream. This meal is remarkable and worth making a reservation for. Definitely a southern food lover's dream!
It's one of my all-time favorite restaurant. Good Service, good facility, knowledgeable staff, GREAT GREAT FOOD! Family style setting, it's prefect to have a nice social time with your friends or the total stranger sitting next to you. You get to hear their stories as you having your tasty/non-greasy fried chicken. The table staff then tells you the stories about the town, Jack Daniel, and the restaurant history. I have been there many times and will go back again!

Had the pulled pork plate red beans and baked beans. I think the bake beans came from a can. The red beans were great. Pulled pork was good. Priced right good proportions. Friendly staff.

We had some time to kill before our tour started at Jack Daniel's, so we walked over to downtown Lynchburg. I love barbecue places, so we stopped in at the Bar-B-Que Caboose. My wife always thought she hated barbecue, but it turns out that she hates barbecue sauce. She got the pulled pork sandwich, without any sauce and really enjoyed it. I also got the pulled pork, but I blessed mine with plenty of sauce. We both left happy. Service was very friendly and amazingly quick. We had plenty of time to enjoy our meal and still make it back to the distillery on time. My only complaint is that it's cash only. They have an ATM in the back, and all the other shops can handle plastic. As far as I'm concerned, there is no excuse for this. It also lowered their review score.
This place doesn't even cook their own BBQ, hence the non BBQ or smoky scent you expect from a true Q joint. Went around back to find no smoker present hmmm kinda weird right? Sub par bought BBQ that is not worth the time. What a joke.
Best sweet tea for sure

Had a sandwich around 6PM from this subway and was retching by 9PM. I was sick for 4 days. Avoid this place at all costs.
