For 20 years, family-owned Good Ol’ Boys has been a popular place to eat some of the best Southern food in Lee County.

Located at 1843 Sandhill Road in Auburn, Good Ol’ Boys is situated on the edge of a farm where guests can enjoy views of the surrounding pastures in a laid back, friendly atmosphere.

The unique country experience is made complete with excellent customer service and great food at family prices.

Some well-known favorites include the hand-cut charbroiled steaks, homemade cobblers, Southern style $4.99 lunch specials, a covered wagon salad bar, and the best catfish in the South.

Customers also enjoy tapping their toes to live bluegrass music on Tuesday nights.

Good Ol’ Boys is known for its large dining area, including a banquet room often reserved for special events including: sports teams, wedding parties, awards ceremonies, professional gatherings, birthday parties, family reunions, church socials & many other events.

Guests are treated like family and are given personalized service that demonstrates Southern hospitality. It’s no wonder Good Ol’ Boys has received several Readers’ Choice Awards from the Opelika-Auburn News for Best Family Restaurant.

The restaurant was built in 1993 by Dr. Lynn Hanrahan on the edge of his farm. Hanrahan taught Veterinary Pathology at Auburn University, and the restaurant was a project he and his wife, Ann, started. “Miss Ann” ran the dining room and implemented several of her exceptional Southern-style recipes in the kitchen. Their grandchildren now work together to run the restaurant.

Joshua Jorgensen is responsible for the delicious food coming out of the kitchen. His sister, Jenny Woolward, and Jenny’s husband, Jeremy, run the front of the restaurant while their baby girl, Lynn-Marie, is in charge of melting customers’ hearts. Mrs. Shirley Parr has been in charge of keeping the salad bar and preparing cobblers since Joshua and Jenny were kids, and many customers know her by name. Good Ol’ Boys has several loyal employees, and together they make up the “Good Ol’ Boys Family.”

Good Ol’ Boys continues to create a unique and improved experience for customers. The dining room has been (and is still being) renovated, and a new project that is in the early stages is the addition of a small petting zoo on the adjacent pasture.

“In the future, Good Ol’ Boys plans to constantly improve in ways that will delight customers for many more years to come,” the restaurant states.
