My daughter was home in early October for Fall Break from College and wanted Barbeque. Although I had never been the Thompson Brothers, I found some good reviews online about it. And, they were all correct. The restaurant is located in a shopping center and is small; however, the food was great, the prices were good, and the service was... More

First time eating their BBQ, it was a catered event which sometimes the meat can be a little on the dry side. Not the case with their BBQ, pork was very well flavored, chicken was moist and tender with great smoked flavor. Baked beans and cole slaw were very good too. Everything was perfect, there were over 50 people and... More

The ribs are smoked to perfection, the Texas toast is good, the baked beans are really sweet too! You have to try the homemade lemon pound cake, it's too delicious!!! The customer service is the best around, they go above & beyond with 110%!!! This is the only place I go for ribs!!!

I live in NY and wanted some southern BBQ on our visit to Atlanta. So my wife found this place near where we were staying. The brisket was awesome, I could have eaten a few pounds of the stuff. I also wish I could get this at home. the collard greens were good but I ate them mostly to absolve... More

We frequent this place, and it is always good, consistent food. I like the chopped beef and greens. The pound cake is supposed to be excellent. Enjoy!

This is the second visit to this small BBQ restaurant off Cobb Parkway in Smyrna Georgia. It was very good the first time, so I thought I would try it again. It was as good as I remember it. Excellent chopped pork sandwich, meat moist and tender and the sauce is very good as well. Also tried the Brunswick Stew... More

Thompson Brothers is a regular stop for some very tasty BBQ. Located in a strip mall, Thompson Brothers is a small counter service restaurant that does a fantastic job on both quality and value. I usually get one of two dishes when I come here, the Pulled Pork Sandwich on Texas Toast with a side of BBQ Beans or BBQ... More

Was led here by favorable reviews on this site. Was disappointed, as did not measure up to my style of BBQ. Had the pork sandwich, chopped. Now ere they really mean chopped, like they must have put it in a food processor. The tiny bits were so small, the sandwich fell apart. Atomsphere is nothing special. Located in your basic... More

We stopped in there for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. We had to wait in line behind a bunch of folks including 6-7 servicemen from the nearby military base. That told us it must be good. I had the Ribs Sandwich. This was 3 MEATY pork ribs with a side - I had greens. The smoke flavor on the ribs... More
