I have been coming here (and the two previous) locations for over 60 years. As a kid we called it "the barbecue place" and it was on the way to grandmothers. Now only get here every few months but still my favorite. Love the pork sandwiches and ribs. Rings and fries are excellent as is the stew and slaw. I... More

In this area, if you are going to sell Bar B Que you better do it right because the competition is stiff. Wallace not only can do it as good as any other, but they have some of the friendly faces you'll find in any restaurant. It is almost like they are all family (the kind that get along with... More

Glad to have read the reviews from others here. This place is pretty darn good. On a Saturday night at dinner time (6pm) we pulled up to find a parking lot overflowing and fire trucks at the curb (they said they come here often to eat - asked them what to order and they suggested the pork platter) Waited less...

When it is mealtime and we are on the road we like to see what TripAdvisor lists as the top restaurants in towns we are passing through. Yesterday we were passing through Austell, GA and saw Wallace BBQ listed as the #2 restaurant. The only question I have after eating there is why is this restaurant not the top restaurant... More

The food is great, and the service is spot on. I particularly enjoy their salads, but the barbecue is just as good. The waitresses and staff are always friendly. As many times as I've eaten here (MANY) they've not once gotten my order wrong, plus the food always comes out very quickly!

I have frequented this restaurant for at least 30 years. Everything I have tried is excellent. The barbecue, both beef and pork, are always good. The Brunswick stew is probably the best I have eaten. My husband thinks their cole slaw is good. Their pies are very good too. The kind where there are tiny droplets of coke tasting sugar... More

Wallace's has always been good. The waitresses are cute, friendly, and on the spot. The food is fresh, and comes out fast.
