Simply the best!

This is the best bbq in the state of Georgia. My favorites are the pulled pork and brisket. Sooo good...meaty, tender, smoky. The Mac and cheese is a cheesy indulgent pleasure best served with their collard greens ( every bit as good as my grandma's). Reasonable prices and great service too. Love... read more

Given reviews and recommendations, our visit left us wondering if Community Q is suffering from inconsistency in execution. Among us, we had brisket, sausage, pulled chicken, and pulled pork. I personally had the brisket, but also tasted the others. The brisket was too bland and somewhat greasy (not moist, just greasy). It definitely did not stand on its own. I... More

Pulled pork sandwich, stew, & drink. $11 but worth it. Very rich flavor and good portion. Sauces were very good too. Loved the Brunswick Stew. It had a very good flavor to it! I'll go again.

Awesome BBQ- pork, beef brisket, chicken but the Mac n Cheese, greens, other side set them apart. I'd say in the top 2-3 BBQ joints anywhere in ATL. Come early, expect long line for a table and it's worth it.

Not sure what the buzz is about. I agree with the reviewer who says "bland, bland, bland!" No real taste to the food. The atmosphere is nice with a good neighborhood vibe, but the food is average at best. Actually, I think I would only give it 2 and a half, not three if that had been a choice. I... More

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 few bites and instead drove to the Greater... 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
