Oh My Brisket

Stand in line, order your food, have a seat, you are in for a treat. No fuss barbecue joint, paper towel rolls on the table, food served on small baking sheets. The man and cheese is awesome (wide noodles, totally changes the texture), the stew doesn't disappoint, the chicken is tender and moist... read more

The food was good. The ribs were delicious. The pulled pork was juicy and very tasty. The macaroni and cheese was guilt-inspiring good. Tasty collard greens as well! The staff was cute and hip and very friendly. The owner was there and seemed really nice. Meat!

I have been coming here every July for a couple of years. The food is excellent. The service is good and I recommend it to everyone at COS at Emory.

In my top two BBQ joints in the Atlanta area would be Community Q. Pulled pork sandwiches are very generous and not skimpy like some places. Flavors are just where they should be and I love their sauce. Ribs are awesome too. The place isn't fancy as BBQ joints shouldn't be as it is all about the food. I've tried... More

Went here twice while on vacation to Atlanta, and loved it! We had a large party of 10 and both times thought we had to get it to go but a table always opened up at the last minute. The staff was friendly and helpful for what to get, and the food was amazing in our Virginia natives opinion. We... More

I wanted some ribs but I wanted to venture outside of Fat Matts and Community Q BBQ was the chosen one. Located in a small quaint plaza on Clairmont Road in Decatur, parking was not difficult because it was during the week. I can imagine parking being insane if it were really busy. The restaurant itself is not huge inside... More

Awesome barbeque with absolutely the best baked beans and mac-n-cheese in the city. Quick and friendly service in this very casual place. Although the sweet tea is terrific, I would probably rate Community Q BBQ 5 stars if they would only serve beer! (But it's still the best Q in the city).

Wow this place is great, get there early for lunch because there will probably be a line. The ribs are awsome, heck everything on the menu is awsome.

A group of my friends and I embarked on a culinary adventure to sample some of the best bbq in the Atlanta area. We started our quest at Community Q in Decatur. As other reviewers said, the beef brisket really stood out. The pulled pork and chicken were pretty good, but nowhere close to the succulent, smokey brisket. The mac... More

Their brisket is tender like filet mignon. Their sides are delicious, and the pulled pork is very good too. But the brisket is the main attraction for me, it really is exquisite. Community Q is my #2 BBQ restaurant in the ATL.
