This is, by far, my favorite BBQ in the Atlanta metro area. I have been to some of the competitor places that people rave about, but to me those places are not any better and they certainly are worse for parking and crowds. The atmosphere is rustic, the aroma in the air is incredible, and the food is absolutely awesome.... More

Took the whole family and kids for a Sunday afternoon pre NFL meal. Loved the Brunswick Stew...combo plate more than enough for two. Good selection of beer. Fast friendly service!

Generic, bland barbecue. If you are looking for authentic Georgia barbecue look elsewhere. If you think Sonny's is authentic, then you will like Williamson's.

I have dined here many times and also their location in Canton. When you drive up your nose is greeted with that southern smoke of good hardwoods and meat drippings. I have tried most of their offering and I find that you can't go wrong with anything bbq. Stay away from the catfish sandwich though heck this is a bbq... More

Was excited walking in and smelling BBQ but was slightly disappointed with the quality of food. Not nearly as good as I had hoped.

Our most recent trip to Williamson Brothers was a pleasant enough, as far as atmosphere goes, but the food was surprisingly sub-par. The slaw was warm, and the meat wasn't all that good. We live in the area and ate out extensively during a kitchen remodel. Unfortunately, Williamson Brothers is now on our "not again" list.

All is adequate here. The meats are prepared well and there are ample items on the menu. Portions are adequate. Good decor compared to most BBQ restaurants, too. I would not hesitate to eat here. Still, the restaurant doesn't stand out from the competition, in my opinion.

Always good food and great service. I like the pork platter with stew and baked beans. My wife and her mother share a pork platter, salad, and fried okra. My wife'said dad gets pork plate without any sauce and french fries. We also like the onion rings go and fried pickles. The prepare the pickles different from any other place... More

This place is a Marietta favorite of mine. I always like supporting local food spots, but the BBQ here is some of the best I've had in the area. Every meat choice was excellent when I tried it and their various sauces don't disappoint. I mostly order their take-out special the 1/2 Bros and it is clutch every time. Plenty... More
