“Best BBQ in Atlanta!”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

This is hands down, the best BBQ, right now in Atlanta GA! Get here before 12 or after 1 if you want to avoid the lunch crowd; however the line moves fast and there is always a seat... Yes I said line. This place is so good that locals line up out the door daily to enjoy their lunch break at Hambones. Get yourself a plate with a side rib. Plenty of variety but a simple enough menu to help you decide quickly. My favorite sauce... The rib sauce. Enjoy!

“Poor chickens!”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

Not sure whether killing the chickens for the meal was really a good idea. For what was done to them by Hambones, a rather fuel death. Unimaginative food, partly cooked (like pink meat??) - MacDonalds, all is forgiven!

“Very Good Southern BBQ”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

We decided on take out and I could not believe the line up before noon at this place. I had my pork shredded with the BBQ on the side. it was excellent! Others had their pork chopped fine but I think mine absorbed more of the sauce which made me happy. The staff was extremely organized and nothing was missed. The sweet tea was excellent!

“Best BBQ in the area”
Reviewed August 13, 2011

They get you in and out fast and have the best stuff around. You have to try the peach cobbler and homemade fries
