Serving up award-winning barbecue sandwiches and platters is what the Finchers do. Since 1935, Fincher’s Bar-B-Q has served mouth-watering barbecue dishes and other home-cooked foods to countless satisfied customers. First opened in 1935 by Douglas “Dude” Fincher, the restaurant fast became known for its delicious southern barbecue, hams, shoulders, and turkeys.
He and his wife Annie Laurie built the original Fincher’s restaurant at 3947 Houston Ave into the most recognized barbecue restaurant in middle Georgia in the 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s. Their two children, Doug Jr. and Mollie, took control opening two more locations. In November 1989, Fincher’s barbecue was served on the NASA Space Mission STS-33 forever coining Fincher’s barbecue the first in space and best in taste! Doug Jr’s two sons, Doug III and Jake now run the well-known operation.
Still as wildly popular as it was 75 years ago, Fincher’s takes pride in traveling across Georgia to offer catering – whether it’s the smallest party or the most extravagant wedding, Fincher’s is ready and willing to feed everyone even shipping barbecue nationwide. They are ready to bring their love of barbecue to you!
