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

We have always gone to the Fresh Air BBQ in Jackson, but on our way home from a Florida Vacation, we decided to stop in Macon since it wasn't as far off the beaten path. We haven't been to Fresh Air in seven years (we moved north of Atlanta) but today's meal made every moment of that seven years worth... More

Good place to experience a diiferent style of cue. Chopped pork with vinegar style sauce. Excellent brunswick stew and slaw. Good place to stop in leui of run of the mill chain restaurants. Look for it behind Longhorns.

This is a vinegar based bar b que sauce & the meats are smoked to perfection. Really good Brunswick stew, too! I've eaten at both locations & the food & service if good at both.

After reading about this place in trip advisor and in our motel booklet, we gave it a try. We, to say the least were not happy at all. There were several pieces of rib that my wife could not chew, the ribs were heated (or reheated) to the point of being dry. Again, like before, the beans tasted and appeared... More

We ate here because of the ratings and reviews but we were very disappointed. The pork had no flavor and the sauce tasted of ketchup and vinegar. My husband just got his Green Egg and can cook way better pork than we got here today. Very pricey for poor value.

I initially heard about this place on the PBS show "Get Delicious" and figured I'd give it a try. The pulled pork was really tender and moist, but I just couldn't get excited about the sauce. Too vinegary. I guess I just didn't grow up with that style so I'm not a huge fan. I wish there were more side... More

This place may look like a bit of a dive from the outside in a rundown plaza but wait. It has great ribs and chicken. The sauce isn't overly sweet. More vinegar based. The rib platter with a side of slaw beans and Brunswick and bread. It's the best I've ever had. The kids enjoyed the 1/2 chicken and it... More
