The food is good but it is not a good value for the money. The pork platter portions are too small. The best value is probably the riblet basket off the appetizer menu. The Brunswick stew is good but not great. The remaining sides are OK. I would not recommend the fries. I don't understand the draw of this restaurant... More

When we have folks in from out of town they usually want some Southern Food, and we try to get them to Williamson Brothers. Everything is prepared fresh and they do use Hickory Wood for real Smoky flavor that comes from the smoke not some type of seasoning. They have pretty much any meat, Pork, Beef, or chicken, and it...

This is a "must try" restaurant when in Atlanta. The food is actually cooked on hickory wood right in front of you - no electric smoker used here. If you can get their smoked sausage, try that for sure! Another reviewer called this a chain but I don't think they have more than 3 locations. Definitely locally-owed and operated.

I have eaten at many bar-b-q restaurants around the southern USA, but my favorite is still Williamson Brothers in Marietta GA. We are regulars there and mostly we go for a pork platter accompanied by their yummy Brunswick stew and nice potato wedge type fries. Sometime we will go for their ribs - again very tasty. Another dish worth trying... More

First, Yes I have had better Q but this is the best I have found the area. Its a good meal for a fair price. Went with a few people and they were all happy with thier meal. My quest for the finest Q goes on but if in the area I would go back, its worth a taste. Best... More

I am not a fan of chain restaurants but this is an exception. The beef bbq rib was so tender I on needed a fork to pull the meat off the bone. The sauce was a little salty so I asked my server for one without sauce. It was perfect. The onions straws were the best I have ever ate.... More

We went based on reviews. For the "fame" of the place, the place wasn't very good. The sides were cold (not cool, cold). BBQ beans tasted like canned stuff from the bargain bin. Mac/Cheese wasn't southern Grandma's best. Now to the meat. Ribs were somewhat tasty, but tough and didn't "fall off the bone." Chopped pork was cool and didn't... More

Service left much to be desired. Constantly had to flag down the server. Missing items from plate. Food was as expected.
