Though barbecue sauce can be used to power tractors or grease slip 'n' slides, it’s best for making beans sing and chickens dance. Start a party on the tongue's floor with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of slow-cooked fare and drinks at Fincher’s Barbecue, valid at all four locations on Houston Avenue, Houston Road, Gray Highway, and in Warner Robins.
A Macon staple since 1935, Fincher’s savory smoked fare and signature sauce is the first of its kind to leave orbit, traveling on two separate space missions at the request of an astronaut. Topping the streamlined menu is the barbecue pig, a classic chopped-pork sandwich ($2.28), which pairs perfectly with french fries ($1.59) or a cup of brunswick stew ($1.10). The chicken plate ($6.85) unites a half pound of the prized protein with fries, slaw, and buns. For fall-off-the-bone goodness, sample the slow-cooked St. Louis rib plate ($7.99), accompanied by three sides and a succession of satisfied lip smacks.
Barbecue buffs can enjoy their hearty grub at one of Fincher's four locations or take it to go with a convenient carryout option. The original Fincher’s location (on Houston Avenue) provides patrons with convenient curb service, and the other three establishments offer drive-through windows for a quick meal on the run, the lam, or when riding a running lamb.
Fincher's Barbecue was featured on the blog pFoody. Although there aren't many reviews online for all four locations, six Yelpers give the 3947 Houston Road location a 3.5-star average and 65% of Urbanspooners like it. More than 3,300 Facebookers like the restaurant:
