We had the short ends and they were so good. The sides were just average, but the service and the quality and taste of the meat was out of this world.

“average at best”
Reviewed February 14, 2007

chicken was smoky but tough, although drowned in sauce. pork was served in meager portions and the stew while tasty wasn't thick enough to be a stew . i knew i didn't want to walk in this place as soon as we pulled up. it doesn't look like a bbq joint from the outside and from thte inside it turns out my suspicons were correct.service was friendly and sincere but food quality wouldn't put this joint in the top 50 much less the top 5. on a 1 to 10 scale the sacue was easy to dance to, had an okay beat but i'd give it a 5. there is much better bbq out there even close by.

“Top five BBQ in Atlanta area”
Reviewed January 29, 2006

Thompson Bros. BBQ has emerged as one of the top five BBQ places in the Atlanta area, if not all of GA.

The Thompson Bros. are on site, and the place is decorated with pictures of their sports events, college graduation, and travels.

It's in a strip center, next to an Office Depot, and it's a place for food, not decor.

Everything (beef, pork, chicken, ribs, hot links (even bologna) comes in 1/4 lb. $5.25, 1/2 lb. $8.25, and 3/4 lb. $10.25 servings with 1, 2, or 3 sides. The stew side is wonderful.

The sliced pork is hand sliced with a real knife (unlike common electric slicers), and is thickly sliced and juicy. There's three choices of sauces on the table if you choose.

Located about a mile north of I-285 on Hwy. 41 in NW Atlanta area.
