Bobs Butts was a great BBQ restaurant but they closed last year due to medical reasons. They are missed. Wellborn Country Charm has opened where Bobs was.

We had breakfast there in a Saturday morning. The hamburger omlet was great with sliced fried potatoes. We also had corned beef hash with eggs and a veggie omlet. Served fast and everything was excellent. Small place in a very small town. We all enjoyed...and would recommend to anyone passing through the area. It is about 4 miles south off the Wellborn exit of I-10.More

I was visiting from S Florida and was looking for some good BBQ. My moms neighbors told us about this place so mom and I headed there for lunch. The restaurant is very cute with old time decor along with family pictures. The 9 table...place was full with locals for lunch. I had the pork plate with fries and bread. My pork was excellent could of had a little more favor. I'm use to a sweet BBQ sauce and they only served a mustard BBQ sauce nothing I had tasted before. My mom had the ribs they were very good a lot of meat came with cole slaw. Slaw was a little to dry for me but fresh. We had a nice meal together and had left overs for dinner. Very reasonable price. Ill. head back one day. Waitress was pleasant but always in a hurry.More

OK, Who are these people that think they need to EXCEED EXPECTATIONS TO WIN OVER CUSTOMERS ? My experience on a recent trip from Tallahassee to Tampa I ran across this Diamond in the Rough and I was like I was their long lost son...coming come, Food was great and the Service was even better- Small town Bar-B-Q at it's best. We sampled Ribs (to die for), daily special that day "Rib Tips" (you know all the best pa t s in a complete order, too much to eat) and a Great Burger topped off with Local Made Pie choices. Tell them Larry sent ya !!More

Bob's is not open on Sundays, plus the address was incorrect. Since it was closed, I didn't get the correct address. It's at the corner of country road 10 and (I think) 137.

My title says it all. If you like a good pulled pork sandwich, try this little diner! We went on a Saturday afternoon and there was plenty of seating and the service was fast.

We had eaten at Bob's about a month ago and the ribs were fantastic. Our group couldn't wait to return. As we entered the restaurant, the waitress was mopping the floor and told us to sit in one of the booths. We must have come...here the same time as last visit because she was mopping the floor that time too. Once again we ordered the rib dinner. This time I chose the potato salad in place of the fries and kept with the baked beans. The ribs were cold and tasted like they had been cooked, frozen and thawed out. No where close to the delicious ribs we had the last time. They were horrible. The beans were delicious but the potato salad had so much sweet relish it was a pale green and had no potato flavor. The waitress was very nice but the food was two thumbs and ten toes down. We won't be going back anytime soon or maybe never.More

We enjoy trying different BBQ places and Bob's Butts BBQ was excellent! The prices are reasonable, the food is superb, and the staff is extremely friendly. Bob's Butts BBQ is clearly the place to be in the small town of Wellborn. When the locals flock...to a place, you know it's awesome food. Stop, you won't regret it. They also accept major credit cards, which was nice. Sometimes small town places are cash only. Not Bob's, stop in and enjoy the BBQ!More

This is one local eating establishment which gets my business over and over. Don't let the name fool you as it is closer to a meat and two or three than strictly a BBQ restaurant. However, the BBQ is delicious just the same. I have...dined on the burgers, the BBQ, the flounder, the shrimp, the salads, and the breakfast. All have been well up to my expectations. In fact, tonight the special is flounder and I plan to visit for another nice seafood meal. If you are in the area, this restaurant warrants a trip to sample their menu. From Interstate 10, take exit 292, Wellborn, and head south about 4 miles until you arrive in Wellborn; cross the RR tracks and the restaurant is immediately on your left at the Stop Sign. High marks for this restaurant at very reasonable prices and where the locals eat! Don't let the location fool you; we love it that way. Try it; you'll like it!More
