We (Americans) live here and had tried this place last year as well. It was pretty good then but this visit was disappointing. Waited at least 30 minutes for our food (not busy) and once it arrived the fried chicken was not as it was...last year nor was it like anything I've ever seen. I don't know what the coating was but it was not flaky or crispy. The sliders were just okay. Friendly service. So all in all, with so many other options these days, we won't be back.More

We ordered the brisket burger, the sausage po boy, the bao buns and the brunch omelet and the food was spectacular. Even better with great service. This is a must when coming to Athens!

We moved to Athens 3 years ago from America ... we love Greek food ... but ... we desire a change now & then ... this is a great option ... the owner, Vasilis, is English speaking and he has developed some very creative menu...choices ... last night we had "The Pitmaster" which is a high end burger with some pulled pork also on the bun ... great combination! ... served with a good portion of french fries this burger was so large we had to split the order ... service over several visits the service has been consistently good and friendly ...More

As a Texan, I am a bit picky abut BBQ. I think it's difficult to find good places outside the US and I was fully prepared to be let down. I, in fact, was not. The brisket was juicy and fatty and delicious. The burgers...were hot and the fries too. We got a burger with shredded brisket on it and were jut delighted!!! The service was awesome, the beers cold and the atmosphere was like we were back stateside. W have ZERO complaints. This place is worth the trip, worth the cost, and we highly recommend going there is you want to try what real southern BBQ is all about.More

Everything is delicious. I've been to the states numerous times. We ordered the chuck eye roll which was HEAVENLY and the inside skirt which was way below average. It seemed that the temperature of the grill was not high enough to 'shield' the steak on...the outside and keep it soft on the inside. So the meat turned white/grey on the outside and on the inside. And very hard to chew. I would not order the inside skirt steak ever again. The waitresses are great. Sometime overly friendly but they are really good at what they do. They really care if we enjoy the food. I strongly recommend the ribs and the mac and cheese. Very authentic. Definitely my favorite of its kind. It's really really good!More

This is the best restaurant we went to in Athens. Ive lived in New Orleans for 2 years and this is as close as you'll get to New Orleans food. Drinks are great also and the prices are very affordable.

After looking around for a while we selected Po' Boys BBQ for our evening meal. It was a Saturday night, they were very busy and we hadn't booked... But they slotted us in at the side of the restaurant. Despite the staff being busy, they...still made us feel welcome, and the service was fine. Food was very tasty, well presented and there was plenty of it too. Very extensive menu of both food and drinks. Well worth a visit.More
