BEST NEW RESTAURANT IN DECATUR IN FIFTEEN YEARS

Consistent quality, standards, offerings and service. Incredibly fast "fast-food" speed of delivery of highest quality BBQ and farm-style veggies and sides. In the beginning they were still learning the ropes of service, but now it's like going over to your best friends place. I've sampled... read more

We visited Community Q BBQ on a recent visit to Atlanta. We tried a variety of their specialties: ribs, beef brisket and smoked sausage. Everything was delicious. We sampled their sides, and especially liked their mac and cheese. If you are in the area, and looking for great barbecue, go to Community Q BBQ!

I've visited the shopping center where Community Q is located but I had never been inside. I decided to give it a try on a Sunday afternoon. I ordered the rib combo. After placing the order I sat outside and waited for the food to be delivered. Service was fairly prompt. The food wasn't as warm as I would have... More

We came to Community Q in our never endind search for great BBQ. We've seen numerous great reviews and wanted to try it out. We've been steady customers of Fox Bros. and nobody has come close so I will use that as a comparison. Community gave Fox a run for its money but fell a little bit short. Between all... More

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 it!

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
