Wonderful little BBQ joint, favored by locals. We had a long lunch (due to several beers) where we dined on great BBQ and jalapeño bread. Great service and really nice owner. Not to be missed

Love the hole in the wall feel along with a boatload of half slab baby back ribs next to beans, slaw, or corn on the cob. Half slab could feed two along with appetizer of delicious crunchy curled fried onion rings. BBQ ribs were mouthwatering. We had a group of 8. Drinks were large Margaritas and bottled beer. Waiter was... More

This place was recommended by a shuttle driver as a great bbq. Had to try it. The place was a little hard to find due to construction . When we in we were the only people in the place. This had me a little nervous. But the welcome from the staff and the 1st margarita soon told me dinner would... More

Ice cold beer and excellent 'Q in an authentic Texas roadhouse. This place is rapidly being overtaken by towering office and condominium buildings. It will probably not be long before it is gone. Parking can be a challenge during peak times as it is anywhere in Buckhead. The One Star is worth the trouble to find and visit. You will... More

We came to eat here after hitting a few of the bars in Buckhead as we got hungry. The barman in the Red Toor Tavern next door mentioned it to us as a close option. It has an old authentic feel, definitely not too plush or touristy. The BBQ was pretty good and the hot wings (and sauce) were HOT.... More

Just doesn't have it. They have 2 sauces of which neither is any good. Onion Rings and Fries were very good but that's where it ends. Meat doesn't have the smoked flavor you look for in good BBQ. Parking is an issue during the day .. you have to pay. This area is slowly building out and in 2-3 years... More

One Star Ranch has had a few names over the years. I started coming here when living in Atlanta/Buckhead in the late 1990's. It's a fun little place place with signed dollar bills stapled to walls and used as a type of wallpaper. It offers both indoor and outdoor seating. Often I would meet friends here for a quick and...

Great Food. Was living in Atlanta temporarily. Was impressed with the service the first couple times I was there, but the last time they weren't very friendly and service was poor.

Wonderful. baked beans are not the usual and... More

First time here and had the brisket. Not sure why other reviews put the brisket down but mine was cut the right size and was tasty. Yes, I had better brisket but the brisket here was better than most.
