Took us a half hour for the Uber driver to find this place! Read so many reviews and couldn't wait to try this bar bq out. Horrible. The night we were there they ran out at 7:30 pm of their famous ribs? What? how does that happen? Then...they also ran out of the pulled pork brisket??? Again, what a huge... More

A colleague and I visited Fox Brothers based on all the great reviews. We are from Kansas City, so we know a thing or two about good ribs. We both got ribs, pulled pork, and the Texas fries. In all honesty, the fries were the best thing all night. The ribs were good, but not the best, I'd try them... More

Looking for good BBQ in Atlanta and Fox Brothers came to the top of the list. Went there on a rainy Saturday night and the estimated wait to be seated was 1:15 but we actually were seated much sooner. Six of us at the table and we had it all- ribs, brisket, chicken, pulled pork, wings and an assortment of... More

Easy to find, little hard to park (because it is so popular), but once inside - fantastic! Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was our first time there being out of towners, but after talking I was able to pick the best on the menu (for me) and had a fantastic lunch. The only thing better than the... More

My wife and I have had this on our list for several years and we were finally back in Atlanta and able to eat here today. We flew in town and took the 20-30 minute ride to Fox Brothers. We had the grilled pimento cheese sandwich and Brunswick stew as an appetizer and we had the platter with brisket, pulled... More

This place has it all and does it well. From appetizers to wings to bbq to sides to ice cold beer. Everything we tried (party of 4) was delicious. Highly recommended are the Texas fries, St. Louis style ribs, beef brisket, and pulled pork. The sides were excellent-especially enjoyed the baked beans, coleslaw, and collard greens. Sadly, we left no... More

Service was great. Ordered the shareable platter with ribs, chicken, brisket and pulled pork. Also ordered sides of greens and baked beans. The greens were a little sweet for my taste. The meat was tasty, but the pulled pork was not shredded like I've had at other restaurants. The sweet tea was delicious. Was a little disappointed considering the ratings... More

Best BBQ in town so far. The restaurant seems to be in an old garage. Good service and nice atmosphere. Worth a trip!

Hands down the best BBQ I have had!! The ribs are so tender, never had ribs this tender. The pork belly burnt end were melt in your mouth. Dove about an 1hr and waited 30min to get seated. So worth the wait. The only downside is the parking. Staff was friendly and provided good service. You must try if your... More

Fox Bros BBQ was a delight when visiting Atlanta! Seated almost immediately, no wait. Parking was a bit tricky since there aren't too many spots, but we got lucky. Beer selection was great! Cocktail list was okay. Food was delicious! We started with the "Tomminator" appetizer. Loaded tator tots smothered in cheese, beans, and Brunswick stew. My boyfriend got a... More
