I rate it 3.5 stars, but I had to round up.

I have had BBQ in every part of this nation. This is better than average. They smoke the meat with oak wood. You can barely taste the smokiness. Sides are very tiny. I didn't like that. I had to pay an extra $3.00 to get the portion of collard greens to make a normal sized side dish. It's pretty... read more

Consistently good BBQ. Wide variety of items on menu, which is nice for a BBQ restaurant. Only negative is older building. I always feel the need to check for the nearest exit given the large fire in the center of the building.

My son and I went to lunch at Williamson Brothers BBQ a week ago and had a great meal. I had the BBQ pork plate with BBQ beans and Brunswick stew. My son had the BBQ pork sandwich with fries and beans. We both loved it. Tastes delicious and home made not canned. This was one of a number of... More

My husband and I were in Marietta for the first time and wanted to try the local BBQ. On a Saturday around 11:30, we were sat in the very back, looking into the kitchen. The kitchen employees were very loud and were discussing their personal issues. We asked if we could be moved further away from the noise. The place... More

We get this catered in for business lunch 5-6 times and I eat because it iis food and that's all. The quality is never the same on the pork or chicken-sometimes its dry. I used to eat their for lunch and the place is always crowded-it is a local institution. The sauce is unique and it adds flavor as I... More

Williamson Bros was okay BBQ a decade ago. Not anymore. We actually had the cater a backyard party at our house about 10 years ago and it was decent 'cue then but it's just gone downhill. Living nearby, we've come in sporadically hoping it would have improved, last time being a couple of months ago for a meeting with some... More

Williamson Bros BBQ on Roswell Road makes the best barbeque pork in Marietta, maybe the best ever! I love their pulled pork sandwiches with the amazing homestyle steak fries...My husband loved the BBQ Chicken and onion rings. They have a wide menu, but these are our favorites, and they're all we ever order! The original sauce is fantastic, and they... More

Its been several years since I have been to Williamson Bros BBQ due to our moving to Texas. BUT I can clearly say that its better than any BBQ I have had in Texas. My husband loves BBQ so we try other places often looking for that Good BBQ. Nothing beats Williamson Brothers. Even our non eating BBQ son loved... More

This is our favorite place to get bar-b-que. It was our choice for our wedding food. Besides the over a dozen bar-b-que sauces, which you really don't need since the meat taste so smoke flavored, save room for some pie.

Their baked potatoes are enormous and delicious! If you are a fan of BBQ - Williamson Brothers is worth a visit if you are in the Marietta area.
