I do love a good BBQ so, like with Italian food, I tend to be extra judgmental when I go to one of those places. While doing business in Atlanta we got a lunch invitation by an avid BBQ fan that said he had been meaning to go to this place for a long time. The time was now. I... More

The everything plate is nuts! You should go early otherwise the line will be huge on saturdays, best BBQ Joint in East ATL on my opinion!

my girlfriend and I visited on a Wednesday evening. My ribs and brisket were great, my girlfriend ordered the smoked chicken salad sandwich and got stabbed in the tooth with a bone shard. The manager on duty took care of our meal but it definitely was a disappointment.

I love, love, love the bbq ribs! They were tender and the seasoning on them were just right! Also, the meat falls right off the bone! How can you go wrong with that! I can't wait to go back!

I recently had dinner here on a Monday night and the place was packed! This is truly a "neighborhood place". A train passed across the street during dinner and wow, was that nostalgic! They offer outdoor seating (weather permitting) via their garage doors. The jalapeño cornbread melts in your mouth. So good! I ordered the Frito Pie as an appetizer... More

The waitress was so nice! We had a lager party and everyone got exactly what they ordered and enjoyed it! The portions were huge but it is a bit pricey. I would definitely recommend but only if you have time to wait. It's very popular so our wait was over an hour for a table. The bar was completely full.

on a day trip to Atlanta out riding and found this outstanding Bar- B-Que diner. The best Brisket I've had in a few years. Great Brunswick Stew and the Tomminator appetizer is worth the wait.

While visiting from Boston, our Atlanta friends brought us here for the BEST lunch in Atlanta!! Everything was PERFECT! Juicy, buttery brisket; pull off the bone ribs; succulent chicken. And, of course, don't miss the pimento cheese sandwich and the Frito pie!

I am not a huge BBQ eater, but YASSS to Fox Bros. BBQ. The mac-n-cheese, smoked chicken, and ribs were all mouth watering. Please order the combo plate so you can enjoy a little bit of every thing. Delicious! The staff was very friendly and timely. Very important, especially in this "Hot Spot". I will return to Fox Bros. very... More

The barbeque was pretty good, although it was not pulled like I was expecting. We ordered togo and it was given to me as a hunk on a slice of bread. I ordered a platter, which came with two sides. I got a side salad and some mac and cheese, and I was not given the mac and cheese. We... More
