Not that great...

I have driven past the sign on 75 for years and years and finally stopped... Well it was ok, but not great. The brisket was the worst brisket I have ever eaten. I could hardly chew it and left 3/4 of it. The wife ordered the pulled pork which was way better. Thankfully she left 1/2 of hers, so... read more

Wanted to try bbq in Georgia, but this was not good by any means no really smoke flavor at all the sauce was ok. I am from KC and was willing to try something different. I dont know if this is just Georgia style, but was not impressed. I should have gone next door to the other restaurant. They were... More

We have been enjoying OB's for years. I have tried many of the bbq places in the southeast and have not found one I would say has better pork, stew or catfish. Those three will keep me coming back. The place never seems to have a crowd but don't be fooled by the amount of cars in the parking lot.... More

I'd seen the advertisement on I-75 about this restaurant for over a year, and always told myself I wanted to try it. Well, I finally got the chance and I saw that I'd been missing a treat. I ordered the OB's Ultimate and was pleased. The bbq ribs were well-cooked and tantalizing. I enjoyed the pulled pork and bbq baked... More

OB's slow roasts their meats for 16 and let's it sit for to rest before carving it. It was the most tender pork I have ever had. They have great sauces many other delicious things to eat. Their hush puppies were delicious! The service was good also!

Prior to my wife buying me a smoker for Christmas a couple years ago, I used to stop at this place at least once a month. The Q is five stars, the sauce is the kind I like, sweet with a hint of cinnamon. If you are on the south side of Atl., give this place a try.

FOOD -- Honestly, the times I've been forced to eat here with my in-laws I've never been overly impressed. I had considered most everything I had tried average or below. I was recently there, with the in-laws again, and I had the pork plate and Brunswick stew along with mac and cheese and fries. This time I could taste/smell the... More

The BBQ and sides (beans, baked sweet potato, fried green tomatoes) were good--nothing outstanding, but good. The portions were plentiful. The place does need some cleaning up, but we enjoyed our dinner there.
