Hometown Food, Awesome Prices

Hometown food, awesome prices, and great staff. Classic slaw dog or Brunswick stew are the items to try. Definitely a great place to try if you are in the Atlanta area.

Recent health score 99. Note - the actual name is Fred's BBQ House. This old time, local, colorfully-decorated establishment is OK but doesn't stand out. You order and pick up at the counter. They have the standard BBQ choices and some other options such as hot dogs. Prices are reasonable. The pulled pork was good but not great. The Brunswick... More

Ordered the BBQ Basket and I was not impressed at all. Fries were stone cold, cole slaw was flavorless and pork sandwich was hot but zero flavor.

I heard about this place and I decided to try it out. Although the employees are friendly, food was not that great. Also noticed how there were only 2 other people in the restaurant at dinner time which was not a good sign. If a restaurant is great you will usually see a lot of people eating there. I had... More

The Yellow Jackets and rings are the best items on the menu. The service is friendly and happy faces are everywhere. Can't forget about the stew which is best in town!

I come to Atlanta often for training fun Subaru and my instructor has often recommended I go here, well I finally made it. I got a barbeque sandwich, hotdog all the way (with slaw, cheese, no onions), and Brunswick stew. The sandwich was a delicious smokey flavor, with just the right amount of sauce and the slaw on the side.... More

Lunch here is fantastic and I visit it every time I'm here on business. The folks running this joint are so wonderful, calling you "sugar" and "honey" and just oozing southern hospitality. The BBQ and tots and hush puppies and New Brunswick Stew are all must haves. Just a great place to have lunch.

Went based on hotel clerk recommendation. Sometimes that is risky. This time I am glad i listened. Little, locals place. Good food, nice people, good selection, cheap prices...What else is there? Had the BBQ pork platter, spent a whole $10 on dinner including drink. Very good chopped bbq, served with slaw and brunswick stew. Nothing fancy, but that is what... More
