Best BBQ in GA

Pulled pork is the best I have ever found. Sauace's (Scott's and NC) are both great. They have brisket and burnt ends on Friday and both go fast as they are very good too. The ribs and all the sides are good. The lunch special (pulled pork sandwich, chips and drink) is a great buy.

Fantastic BBQ and homemade Brunswick Stew. They serve it traditional style sauce less. But their sauces are great too. Their own tomato based is great but their North Carolina Sauce is out of this world. Pungent, slightly sweet with just the right amount of Kick from chilies.

Very good BBQ. Champion BBQ in the south. Very affordable. Great little "hoke in the wall" locals spot. Nice outside area to eat. Closed on Sun and Mon.

Off the beaten path, behind Cartersville High School is a family owned and managed bbq joint. The service is excellent. The food is good, and the variety is nice. From deli chicken 'que salad, and baked tater spuds full of savory pork, to tender, meaty ribs and brisket on Fridays---, it is ALL good. The sides have the usual baked... More

Great place to enjoy BBQ. The meat is well cooked, no fat and moist. Try the BBQ baked potato. Brisket ain't bad either.

I've always been taught that great Bar-B-Que should not be covered up with sauce, you should taste the smoke and flavor that goes into cooking that great piece of meat and Scott's Walk-up does exactly that! We love everything here from the pulled pork, ribs, chicken and the Brisket (Fridays only - till it gone). Stand in line, put in... More

Scott' BBQ has awesome BBQ and brisket! Brisket is only on Fridays, but worth the wait! Wonderful locally owned and operated little restaurant. It's a local favorite!

Scott has the best bar-b-q and stew of anyone around. We certainly recommend it. Both the pork bar-b-q and the brunswick stew are great as well as the beef brisket .

Pulled pork, Ribs and Chicken are all great. Pork is always moist and lean. The sides are very good too. The quality of the food is always very consistent. They have a special of BBQ pulled pork sandwich, chips and drink that is very reasonably priced too. I don't usually think of a BBQ place as a good place to... More
