I would pass the word

Only dissatisfaction was the Mac & cheese. But then no one is better then mine. But overall the food was really good. I'd recommend it.

Leaving airport and decided to stop by and give this restaurant a try. It's a cafeteria style set upstyle set up. I had to ask for fresh rib tips because what the had look dry. The other items looked old as well. The older female server was very indifferent in her attitude - not rude but definitely not nice or... More

Needed a caterer for a vow renewal ceremony for my parents. In June 2015, I reached out to the This Is It on Panola Road in Lithonia, GA. I called and left several messages - no response. I went to the store location in July, went over my budget with a catering manager that said that she would "put something... More

Heard all about this place from friends so had to try it. It definitely lived up to all the great reviews! My husband and I are making this place a regular stop and always taking a plate to go.

I patronize this restaurant on a weekly basis and have had very few complaints other than the BBQ chicken being overcooked a few times. So this year I decided to cater my family's Thanksgiving dinner which was the WORSE decision I could have made. I paid $160 for half trays of macaroni and cheese which was thin and runny, stuffing...

Did not meet the standard of the self congratulatory posters on the walls. Notably did I did not see anything from the AJC. The pork ribs and BBQ were very disappointing and over priced. Did not meet Atlanta's excellent standard.

Visited during my stay at a nearby hotel. I heard so much about it and finally was able to try it for myself. I was not that impressed. There were a couple of things on the menu that they actually didnt have. Kinda frustrating. The food was ok, not what I expected from a soul food joint.

We have had BBQ all over the USA. The pork BBQ, cabbage, cole slaw and black-eyed peas at "This Is It" was perfectly satisfactory. Nothing seemed salty (which can be hard to find). The prices were a bit higher than we usually find at BBQ joints, but not driving to dinner was a huge plus.

Awesome Soul Food served Cafeteria Style. Specializes and BBQ but has other options. Get there early for their specialties or they run out like the BEEF ribs. Staff Friendly. Parking is horrible but they have staff to direct traffic. Does huge to-go order business.
