This BBQ joint is owned by a few very talented chefs. They cook everything fresh. The sides really shine; sweet potato with kale, black eye peas with rosemary and bacon, great slaw. The ribs are rubbed, half rack provided leftovers for next day lunch. Pulled pork sandwich was also good. Vinegar- and tomato-based BBQ sauce is served. My husband has... More

I have gone here a few times, the second and third to give it another chance. Every time I have been, I have had pieces of fat in my sandwich. Of course, that is part of eating barbecue, but, I cannot deal with fat in my sandwich. In addition, I was not a fan of the mac and cheese which... More

I found nothing special. The smoke links were not freshly made or anything and the brisket has no flavor at all. They offer sweet sauce and vinegar sauce nothing spicy. The ribs were sweet and no real smoke flavor just mushy, fatty, ribs seems like they sit around a lot. i get better q out of the small stands in... More

Tasty Q at Community Q I’m a barbecue fan and love the opportunity to try a new place. Community Q has been there for a while, but I only recently got to go there on a visit to Atlanta. We went a bit late on a Tuesday evening and the place was hopping. It is best not to go too... More

Everything was very good and reasonably priced. I ordered the kitchen sink salad which included everything....even purple hull peas. It was extremely fresh with just the right amount of vinaigrette. The Mac n cheese was in a very small portion-sized bowl and it's a good thing......for my health's sake. It was so tasty and creamy. Everyone else ordered bar b... More

This BBQ was not very good. I had the BBQ pulled pork sandwich. The toast was soggy, the meat was dry and in too large of chunks, and the sides were bland. If your idea of good food is bland and not quite heated food, then Community Q bbq is your place.

I try to stop by for lunch every time that I am in town. Really excellent food, always a line, very casual atmosphere. Put in your order at the cashier, get your drinks (no alcohol) from the machine and find a seat. The staff brings your order to your table. Don't be put off by the little hole in the... More

Best bbq in Atlanta. Family friendly full of seasonal options for salads and a mini-market featuring fresh produce. Take out and catering packages are perfect.

As a native of Fort Worth, TX, I love my BBQ. This place is by far the best BBQ I have had in 10 years in Georgia! Best meal for the price and excellent flavor. Must try but don't wait. They may sell out by the end of the day...

Visiting from out of town and saw good reviews and decided to check it out. They do some business! It was crowded no doubt from the food being so good. Really enjoyed it and was happy with the prices!
