BBQ and More

Recent health score 92. This large, rustic establishment - part of a local 3-unit chain - is one of very few BBQ options in the Canton area. The menu contains all the obligatory BBQ choices, but also offers steaks, burgers, catfish and more - even sloppy Joes. The sweet cole slaw, pulled pork... read more

My family and I were not allowed to taste the food unless we was wiling to sacrifice our dignity. I am black. My husband is white. Our children, ages 9,9, and 8, are, of course, bi-racial. When we walked into this rather large establishment, I walked up to the host's stand and announced that we needed a table for 6.... More

Yes. .... I waited over an hour just to get seated. I figured if it's this packed it must be good... wrong. ... people just want somewhere to go... friendly staff..... affordable food... but bad food... except for the mac and cheese....

We visited here the first time we came to Canton before we moved we found it through some friends who said it was the best barbecue around. They were not wrong. The food is excellent the portion sizes are great and the service is second to none, we will definitely go back again.

I have been eating at Williamson BBQ since it opened in Marietta in the 1990's! Their BBQ is absolutely the best around! The Canton location is my favorite - and not just because they are currently offering all-you-can-eat on Tuesday nights! My all time favorite thing on the menu is the BBQ Potato Skins - you read that right....they take... More

This place produces the best ribs around. I have had them several times and they are always good. I have tried most of the side dishes and all are very very good. If you love BBQ, this place is a must eat. Well worth every penny and worth the drive if you live far from Canton.

Good overall selection and quality. Nice as has seating for larger groups. Their sauce is the bomb for Georgia style.

Great bbq pork, bbq sauce (both kinds), and the Brunswick stew is just like my favorite uncle would make for family reunions. We always get some to go to eat for a couple of days! Yum!

We were desperate for a non-fast food lunch and pulled into this place just because the parking lot was crowded. Pork sandwich, burgers, BLT, grilled green beans and mac and cheese... Everything was very good although some said the BBQ sauce could be better. A bit pricey for lunch at a BBQ restaurant but it was convenient. The interior is... More

I have eaten BBQ in many different places and this is not the best but by far not the worst. We did enjoy it and did not leave hungry, but the service was slow and not the cleanest place either. But all in all it was good and I would go back.
