“Our favorite BBQ place. Anywhere.”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

We have eaten at Georgia Rib MANY times and consider it one of our top 5 restaurants in the greater Atlanta area. Admittedly, the facility is quirky in that the larrrrge entry is unstaffed and you're on your own to find the inexplicably deserted dining room (ahead on the right). Strange arrival aside, the food makes it all worthwhile! The brisket and pulled pork are dependably tender, the mac 'n' cheese is the best we've EVER had, the okra is flavorful and lightly battered as are the thin & crispy onion rings, and the brunswick stew is tasty. (Our ONLY disappointment is the new collard greens recipe--too spicy.) The best buy is to order meats by the pound, eat what you want and take the HUGE remainder home. They keep saying they are going to expand the draft beer taps and that will be a great addition. We typically use coupons (like Yelp, Groupon, etc.) but would pay retail and it's worth an HOUR's drive!!

“Mediocre at best”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

Did carry out tonite -- beef ribs and the combo plate. The dinners were packed with no BBQ sauce so the meats were dry and bland. The order had the wrong sides. And the beef rib dinner consisted of two ribs. And one had barely two bites on it. Then, to add insult, they added an "automatic gratuity" of 18% because I used a Groupon. If they want new customers - why insult them at check-out. I will never be back!

“Delicious Ribs and Onion Rings! Place to ourselves during the Week!”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Groupon coupon brought us to the Georgia Rib Company for a weekday lunch in east Cobb with another couple. As BBQ judges we can be a bit picky. Three of us had Baby Back ribs and one the Brisket. The Ribs were excellent.. would give an 8 if judging at a competition which is very good at a restaurant. The Onion Rings as appetizers were the best any of had ever had and highly recommend. Be sure an order their signature collard greens, best ever, if you like collards. Brunswick Stew wasn't the greatest but I did like the sweet potato fries.
It's an unusual event facility that's a sports bar and a BBQ place. We had the place to ourselves in the middle of the week and felt like we owned the joint. Our waiter, Kevin, who is actually a chef in his other job, was very pleasant and informative.
This BBQ is so much better than Williamson Brothers but a bit higher in price still it will make it difficult to go back to Williamson's. As the adage says, you get what you pay for..
Highly Recommend our new found BBQ place!!

“Pretty Average”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Recent health score not observed.
This is a very large restaurant with many separate rooms. It's essentially a BBQ place with sports bar atmosphere and decor. The menu has no surprises.
The pulled pork, chicken and sides were OK but not distinguished.
The service was mediocre even though it wasn't crowded when we went for dinner.
Can't recommend.

“great ribs and onion rings”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

This is one of the best BBQ places my husband and I have ever been too. The front lobby was empty but once we walked into the main dining room it was pretty busy. We were seated right away and the service was fast. We asked the waitress what would be a good appetizer to start with and she recommended the onion rings. It took a little time for us to get them but they still came out hot and crispy and were absolutely delicious! My husband ordered the sampler platter with mac & cheese and green beans as his sides. When his dish came out it was more than he could eat and we ended up taking half of it home for lunch the next day. The BBQ sauce which was located on the table, is one of the best we have ever had. The manager talked me into getting the lamb ribs and they were absolutely delicious!!! The music choice they had playing in the background was not exactly to my liking. In my opinion, this is a perfect place for families to come eat great food and have a relaxing dinner.
