The Houston Avenue location is where my parents double-dated at the...More

Been eating here since the 1960's. It is the best barbecue and the best Brunswick strew I have ever had. (And I have traveled extensively and eaten lots of Barbecue). Ironically the sweet tea does not meet with my approval.....so get a Coke instead. Great...More

We and our family have been visiting Fincher's on Houston Ave for nearly 70 years, and my parents went there in the early 1940's. The décor is the same as I remember from the 1950's, and some of the staff are the same as I...More

Many in Macon have their pick of bar-b-cue and Finchers is one of the best. Astronaut Sonny Carter even took some on his missions n to space. Pulled pork, fries and Brunswick stew is a standard. Over New Years we will get a bar-b-que shoulder.
