So many things to choose from at Colbys daily and they have a special every day. The staff here always super friendly. We Enjoy going to Colbys Deli often during the week. I especially love that you can make any sandwich into a wrap.

Attractive restaurant downtown Owensboro. But the service was poor, had to flag down our waitress several times. We stopped here because we had read good reviews. The food was not good. How can you ruin natchos? Try this place and you'll see.
