My husband stopped on Friday, July 20 at 1 pm. The place was closed. Is that it for Harold's? Back in the day they had great BBQ and always, even in June when we were there the best Brunswick Stew. That stew and hot cracking ' cornbread would be the menu of my last meal if I got to choose.... More

I saw this place on a "Best BBQ in Georgia" TV show a few years ago. I finally tried it. The little BBQ joint is in the middle of what has to be one of the most run-down neighborHOODS in Atlanta. Like the majority of the neighborhood, this building was falling apart. So much so we almost didn't go in.... More

Great BBQ, They use hams. There sliced sandwich is very good. Harold's Stew is the best. Pretty rough neighborhood. Everytime I'm close by I eat at Harold's

Harold's has been serving sliced pork sandwich's and the best Brunswick stew in the same spot in Atlanta, since 1947. The place is now under the management of the grandchildren of the original owner. I wish they would put a branch in the Atlanta Airport. They would make a killing! Cash only!

Don't understand what all the fuss is about. Just average BBQ. Claustrophobic seating-- wait staff can barely squeeze their behinds between chair backs. Only thing that stands out is the crackling bread (it's the only place I know that still serves it). If it's great BBQ you are seeking, this is not the place. If you want very greasy fingers,...

There is a reason this place has survived in such a crappy location in town, the food is great and reasonable priced. The place is always packed for lunch. Get there early or late if you want a table.

This is one of the best BBQ places in South Atlanta. They have all varieties and types of BBQ for the lunch and dinner crowd. The place is crawling with both local and state politicians and celebrities. Great place for a quick bite or a laid-back business lunch.

My fiance & I recently did a cross country foodie road trip & found this to be one of the best rib spots in the US. Definitely worth a stop!

We couldn't decide what to get so we got the sampler. Best thing there was the Brunswick Stew with DELICIOUS cornbread to go with it. I wish I could have some right now. The pork and beef barbeque were okay, but the stew will make me go back.
