Took a drive to what was once rated the best bar-b-que in Georgia. Since this was in a tiny town, I thought the food must be great to get a statewide vote. The food is average; the atmosphere very rustic. There is a huge seating area that maybe got used in the 80's but I can't imagine that even 1/2... More

Locals at a quilt shop recommended Fresh Air BBQ. Simple menu. They are very good at BBQ. Nothing fancy- sawdust in front of the place. Plenty of seating. A good ole down home place!!

My wife grew up on Fresh Air BBQ. If you're from the South, BBQ is a big deal. And it's different in certain regions of the South. Fresh Air used to have sawdust floors inside the restaurant, but now they offer the sawdust just outside the door. Our family normally orders a large to go order and I bring it... More

Things change, but not always for the best. I can testify the Fresh Air was my favorite BBQ place in Georgia, but it let my taste buds down today. I invited a couple of my friends to join my wife and I for some really great BBQ and Brunswick stew. We all agreed to my embarrassment that my review of... More

We went to fresh air today for a BBQ sandwich. It's always been one of our favorite places for BBQ but today we noticed that the buns the BBQ is on are different buns than they always have. Just don't like the new buns. I'm hoping this is only a temporary thing. Maybe they ran out of the good buns.... More

Horrible, should be the name the this restaurant. The limited selection of food, the service was bad. The bar b que sandwich was ok, the bar b que sauce was unbearable.

Stopped by this restaurant with my family (hubby, 3 kids, MIL and FIL) on the way to see Lane Southern Orchards. My MIL had seen a fabulous review of this place on TV. We and my in-laws like to test out BBQ places, as we have yet to be blown away. Anyway, I like the history of this restaurant, the... More

We stopped in Fresh Air on our way home from FL back to Atlanta. Not too far from the highway, we heard this place had some of the best BBQ in GA; boy are we glad we stopped. The menu is limited, but when the food is this good, that isn't a problem. The brunswick stew is quite good, but... More

The best Bar-B-Que and stew in the area. The smell will make your mouth water as soon as you enter.
