Today, my husband and I got the opportunity to try Georgia Bob’s BBQ in Byron. We’ve been going out to eat a fair amount lately, and have had a craving for barbecue. We’ve not had a chance to try Georgia Bob’s, but since we were in the neighborhood for a kids birthday part at Party Playground, we stopped by for lunch.
The atmosphere was laid-back country comfort but with large-screen tvs playing a variety of sports competitions. Several rooms give patrons the opportunity to sit away from the television for good ol’ family time, but free Wi-Fi was available everywhere.
The menu has a lot of variety beyond your standard barbecue fare, including sandwiches, burgers, and a number of different salads.
I tried the chicken salad sandwich plate, with a cup of Brunswick stew and sweet potato tots. The meat portion was generous, as were the side portions. Chicken salad is highly subject to personal taste, and I truly enjoyed Georgia Bob’s combination.
The meat takes center stage, with a conservative amount of mayonnaise and other ingredients. There are nuts mixed in, which I am guessing are pecans but could have been walnuts.
The sweet potato tots were a fun, new taste for me, and a nice alternative to french fries or potato salad.
My husband chose a barbecue sandwich plate, which he paired with baked beans and Brunswick stew. There were three sauces on the table: mild, sweet, and saucy, and all three were delicious. After making a sandwich, he had ample meat leftover. The barbecue had a smoky flavor, but not overly so.
The beans were hearty and flavorful, and the Brunswick stew was well-balanced. Both complimented the barbecue nicely.
Georgia Bob’s BBQ was a good dining experience, and a nice place to relax and enjoy a meal. They also offer family packs, party packs, and tailgating platters; seasonally, they have holiday packs, such as ham dinners at Christmas time.
