Reviews make this place sound like a real jewel of a BBQ joint, but it is just average at best. I had the pulled pork and my wife had the bbq chicken. Both dishes just average compared to the award-winning bbq joints we have eaten...More

Fantastic BBQ. Great service and friendly staff. I ordered the ribs, baked beans, potato salad, and Brunswick stew. everything was great. They have the best Brunswick stew hands down. Can't wait to go back. They also sell in bulk which is nice.

We had heard that North Georgia Barbecue was great! We went there, after driving around and finally finding it. We went inside. Guess what! NO indoor seating. It was 91 degrees outside. Most of the seating was outdoors, uncovered. So we stood there a minute...More

Food was decent but the service was sooooo slow. Luckily they had corn hole to keep the kids occupied but it was a little ridiculous how long it took to get food.

We enjoyed our supper here. Portions were very generous and they immediately brought a bowl of water for our dog. And extremely honest folks. I walked off and in a senior moment, left my wallet on the table. When I returned about 10 minutes later...More

The positives: Pork plate was good-moist, tasty and a good portion. The negative: Walked in and we were clearly asking questions aloud to each other in the very small order area inside and the employee did absolutely nothing to assist us until I began asking...More

Had the chopped pork. Not what I expected. Poorly seasoned, barely edible. The cole slaw was ok. Don't know why it got a certificate of excellence. It's just average. Maybe there were other things that tasted better, but the chopped pork was yucky!

I believe you answered you own question there. It's smoked pork that's sort of a mixture of pulled and chopped. Is so moist and tender you don't even need sauce, but their sauces are great if you must. Doesn't get much... More
