We heard such wonderful things about this restaurant. On a rainy Sunday, we skipped breakfast to dive into some ribs. Unfortunately, the ribs and the sauce had no taste. The restaurant had a great smoked smell, but unfortunately that did not translate to the ribs. We walked out after only eating a... read more

I am from North Carolina and for many years lamented the rude lack of decent Q in Atlanta! Not now. Community Q BBQ is delicious with the perfect combination of flavor and smoking (not overly smoked like another local favorite). Thank you, thank you, thank you for making my life so much happier! The mac and cheese is definitely epic... More

Fantastic ribs and the mac & cheese is a huge hit in our household. My wife loves the salad. The only disappointment I have ever had with Community bbq is the fact that they don't sell beer.

I was told some time ago that this was place had pretty good barbeque; however, I've been told this before, and the result was not as good. This place has very good barbeque!! I had the brisket, and half chicken with Texas toast, hot tasty fries (cooked to order), and potato salad. The brisket could have had a little more... More

Went there for a late lunch. Sauce a bit too sweet but otherwise very good. 0eicey but what good smoked bbq isn't? Skip the beans. Go for the pulled pork. I would go again.

I have been countlessly told of how great the BBQ at Community Bbq is. Being not even half a mile from my house, I took the close vicinity for granted. Being a guest for a bday celebration, two racks of ribs, a lb of pulled pork, coleslaw, black eye peas and collards. Wow! Everything had a great taste. The collards... More

It's not fancy (in fact the lack of seating comfort is the only reason I can't give it 5 stars) but they make some mean BBQ. The pulled pork sandwich was excellent.

I stopped in for lunch. I ordered two, two meat sandwiches; one Pulled Pork with Beef Brisket and the other Mild Sausage with Beef Brisket. They were served between two pieces of Texas Toast. Both sandwiches were delicious. However, the Beef Brisket stood out! It was so flavorful. The beef tasted like beef. It was not masked by a bunch... More

My second visit to Community Q BBQ was way better than the first. We had gone when they first opened and weren't impressed. Yesterday was a different story. It's kind of pricy, and I thought the collard greens were too vinegary, but the beef brisket -- mamma mia!! It looked delicious (thick lean slices with a nice char), it was... More
