Thought it was good. I don't think it's as good as a four star. It's decent Q, however, with a nice selection and reasonable prices. Found the staff to be very nice!

Drove through bumper to bumper traffic to get here only to be very disappointed. I think the problem is absentee owners. Not Sure? Great story about the place but the story was much better than the food. Wife had smoked chicken and sausage plate. Sausage nothing special at all here and chicken was Very Dry and flavorless with emphasis on... More

I ventured in for the first time today. I ordered "The Whole Nine" single (rib, chopped beef, Bologna, and beef sausage) with Brunswick Stew as my side. The rib was separate. The other three meats were all on the sandwich. It was very good with a choice of three sauces. I used the sweet sauce, which was much thinner than... More

For years my Husband was telling me about this place, so we started to eat there with our son and in the beginning it was soooo good. But, after a while something happened, the beef sausage it began to taste different and then other things were hit or miss.

I had take out for my first experience at this establishment. They also have a dining room. The food was delicious, although I ordered it without sauce. I would recommend this place for people who enjoy barbeque food. They also serve beer.

Visited Thompson Brothers on Saturday, 8/6/2016 for a late lunch. Ordered the sliced beef brisket with baked beans and mac & cheese. The portion size on the brisket was good but the brisket itself was horrible. It was overcooked, dry, and stringy. It was the worst beef brisket I have had at any metro Atlanta BBQ restaurant. The BBQ sauce... More

Good value BBQ! Tucked in a strip mall north of Atlanta, this is a good local place to try for lunch or dinner, especially for out-of-town visitors who are looking for more than the chain restaurants. Order at the counter for sit-in or take out. Had the chopped brisket, with beans and slaw. Nothing fancy, but tasty and filling. Next... More

Stayed in Smyrna for business and wanted to go to BBQ in the city but didn't want to fight the traffic. Thompson Brothers BBQ was located near our hotel and glad I decided to give it a try. Great portions and great taste. Sauces were not a big hit for me but that's a personal preference. Definitely would return and... More
