Good bbq

If you like a vinegar based sauce, you'll like Fresh Air, one of the better bbq places in town. I like their hot sauce and usually get the chicken, but the pulled pork is great as well. It is extremely casual and a fair value with good portions for the money.

Macon has several Great BBQ joints. This is one of them. My favorite is their Cole Slaw. Good choice for family gatherings. Has a 'separate' room off to one side.

Great BBQ, I had the chopped pork plate, and reasonably priced. The hard thing is finding this place, corner business in a set-back strip mall. You order from the counter and then they bring you your food. In a area with a lot of businesses and a lot of traffic in and out, and locals eating there

Food: excellent Brunswick Stew, cold slaw, and pulled pork. Sauces at the table have a high percent of vinegar. Food: 4.5/5. Service: Self-service from the counter. Preparation of the plates is rapid and friendly: 5/5. Décor: 3/5 with clean restrooms. Value: $ but price increases noted on my last visit. Still, 5/5. Will I return? Yes, I like Fresh Air.

After reading several reviews, mostly good, my wife and I decided to eat there since we spent the night in Macon. I have to admit I'm a BBQ snob and have high expectations. I smoke pork, ribs, you name it constantly throughout the year so I know what I like and I'm pretty sure I know what good bbq is.... More

Classic GA BBQ. Pork sandwich, stew and slaw are really good. I really like sauce too. Service is friendly and prices are reasonable. This family has long history in GA BBQ and the current generation continues the trend. BBQ often a matter of personal preference but if you have not tried this one, you should. They have a limited menu... More

Fresh Air has been voted best/favorite BBQ in Macon (not sure how many times); and it sure lives up to that distinction! And just as good as the meat is the coleslaw! I am not a Brunswick Stew fan; so I always get extra slaw instead..... and I still want more when I finish it! :-). They tell you hello... More

Whenever I travel through Macon, I always stop at Fresh Air BBQ. The BBQ is delicious.... A very clean restaurant, reasonably priced and totally family friendly. Worth the stop!

Boy, has this place gone downhill. I used to think it was the best BBQ/Ribs in Macon (along w// High on the Hawg, which closed a while ago). I hadn't been in a while and ordered the rib plate. I got a puny selection of ribs with very little meat on the bones; why I didn't send it back, I... More
