The Greater Good is our go-to place for BBQ near our home in Sandy Springs (right off exit 4A on 400). We went last night and had a great experience as always. It's a little place with a lot of charm right next door to Fellini's Pizza. It has a quaint outdoor eating area with hanging lights that twinkle at night. The inside is a little cramped but has a good old fashioned feel. We always get the three meat plate. I personally like the pork best but my boyfriend LOVES the chicken and brisket. The meat is delicious but is terribly dry without sauce.... but their sauce is amazing! I recommend the sweet. Yum. I am not a huge fan of the sides here- I just come for the BBQ. The fries taste homemade but just aren't my style and definitely are not good to-go. Boyfriend always orders the mac and cheese but always regrets it. Would definitely use them to cater for a football party or family gathering. I know it would be a crowd pleaser.
When you think of BBQ I'm sure the first thing that comes to mind is ribs, chicken and pull pork. Well that was the same for me until I had Sweet Auburn's Shrimp & Grits. This was so good. Since this is a BBQ joint the shrimp are seasoned with a BBQ rub. The thing I found exciting was that they added a charred corn pico . This was different because I've never thought about adding corn. This is differently an ingredient I'll be adding to my own creation. Being full is not something you will have to worry about here. You will have enough for now and some for later. This is a great place to meet up with friends and family and just enjoy each other. They have a veggie plate for those of you who don't eat meat.
The oldest place in town. Why ? It's not the food, or the decor. It's a legend . It's the friendly people who eat here. They have breakfast "click s " and lunch clicks and whatever clicks. It's the place in town to be seen. All the movers and shakers are here. I bet more business deals are made here than in lawyer offices. My first time there many years ago, three people tried to sell me a car. Sure I eat the tough BBQ, I love it. I love the greasy breakfasts too. All the employees here are like family. I know them all by name. They have all been here for over 10 years each. Strangers are welcome, even Yankee's, just don't forget to say Howdy. ChefLars.
