Favorite ribs in Atlanta

If you're looking for a great rib meal, this is definitely the place to come. I had the spare ribs and think they're the best in town. The sweet, tangy sauce really makes them stand out. The mac&cheese is by far my favorite side. We also tried the pulled pork and the shredded beef but thought they... read more

This was a repeat trip for us. Our last visit was for lunch on a quick trip though Atlanta. The food and service were just as good on the second visit. The portions are huge!! We recommend the sampler platter to share with an extra side or two. The collard greens, black-eye peas, green beans, and baked beans were all... More

I can't keep track of how many times I've ordered the pork sandwich with slaw and beans. It's alway a perfect fast ball right down the middle. Not a lot of messing with tradition here, and it's why we've kept coming back for at least 20 years. Keep in mind this isn't artisanal johnny-come-lately barbecue (which definitely has it's place...

I was very pleased with my choice here. I wanted a little of everything, so I go the Starter Platter with all of the appetizers on it. I couldn't even finish it all. The staff was good, quick, and friendly.

This is one of our family's favorite BBQ places. My favorite is the Pork Platter and it never disappoints. I think what makes it so good is the incredible BBQ sauce. The give you extra on the table and I enjoy pouring it on the fries.

Ordered pork and chicken for an event. Extremely disappointed. Both were dry. Specifically order pulled pork and pulled chicken. Pork was chopped. Chicken had no flavor and was choking dry.

You know, you can get decent BBQ just about anywhere, but when a craving hits for fried green tomatoes properly cooked, this is one of the few places in town that still serves them. The BBQ is quite good good, but for me, it's all about the tomatoes. It is such a joy to find a place that still keeps... More

We have been to several BBQ places throughout the area, however this was the best. I recommend the baby back ribs...the meet falls off of the bones yet it is not dry. The sauce is excellent and the service is well above normal. High recommend this restaurant.

I have eaten here at least 20 times in my life and its always good. The ribs are perfection. Fall off the bone, smoked full of flavor. Even the chicken is to die for and all the side dishes are great. I can say nothing Ive eaten here is bad. Its all good and the staff is always friendly. A... More

Barbecue with great smoky flavor, a relaxed atmosphere, generous portions, and wonderful service with a smile. Many choices (I tend towards the pork ribs), and the prices are quite fair, although a little bit more than quick-serve barbecue.
