Had been wanting to eat here for a while and finally had the opportunity when in the area and the line wasn't too terribly long. Community Q serves up some of the best BBQ in the Atlanta area, and at a reasonable price. Loved the combo sandwich that allows you to get two types of meat. The mac and cheese... More

Their BBQ is as good as it gets in Atlanta. If you can not get to Crowe's in Madison or Fresh Air in Jackson then come to Community. Particularly good is the brisket, and the portion will be more than you can eat. Their macaroni and cheese is loaded with cheese. Their french fries are over the top. I also... More

Went here with a group. Our selection of restaurant was based on the TripAdvisor reviews. Good job everyone. The reviews were spot on. We arrived and stood in line to order. The place is very small with limited seating. So they ask that you do not seat yourself until your party has ordered. It all works out. The food was... More

Have been eating here since they opened and some days are better than others. Today was a 3+ but most visits are a solid 4. Today the bread was a little soggy and more fat than normal on the pulled pork sandwich. The Mac n Cheese very good as always. Didn't have it today but the Brunswick stew is also... More

Casual luncheon fare ordering in line and taking seat while food is prepared. Eat on picnic type tables inside with serve yourself soft drinks. Barbeque is one of the best in the state and prices are moderate. Usually packed at lunchtime.

Barbeque was great; cole slaw is terrible; mac and cheese was good if eaten immediately; otherwise became very oily. Baked beans were good; no alcohol served. Walk up and order; food then brought to table. Often not enough seating area for volume. Was there once when they ran out of meat.

Mild BBQ with red sauces are all well prepared and easy to eat. What sets this place apart is the freshness of the kitchen sink salad, the creaminess of a crusty mac n cheese, and the cole slaw which is just the right amount of tangy. The staff is always pleasant and they move folks through this very popular establishment... More

Homemade lemonade, pulled pork sandwich, coleslaw and potato salad. $14.00 and I would have paid more for this deliciousness!
