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.
This is one of the best places to get BBQ around the Midtown/Buckhead areas. The portions are HUGE, the food is excellent, and there's a ton of variety - not just your typical ribs and pork like many other Southern BBQ spots. I left feeling ridiculously stuffed, but it was so worth it - we had the pimiento cheese appetizer, BBQ pork nachos, and a sweet potato souffle that will knock your socks off. The prices for drinks and food are really affordable - not sure why this place isn't more popular! Also a big patio with plenty of seating great for big groups.
Great place to get BBQ and people watching in Buckhead! The food is very impressive, and I love how much variety there is on the menu, not just among the types of meats/sides, but types of dishes in general. There's plenty of options for the calorie-conscious! More details here: http://bit.ly/2aujHgY The cocktails are tasty and affordable, and I LOVE their patio! It's adorable, and after you're done with dinner, you can easily walk to most Buckhead bars.
Where has this place been hiding?? Came here for a going away party and everything was AWESOME: the food, the space and the service. Our bartender taking our orders was so gracious, even trying to serve 20 people at once and take our food orders. On Tuesdays, you can get half off the small plates - such a steal. Everything we tried was amazing and I'd absolutely order it again. Get the fried pickles - such a big order! Can't wait to come back here.
Fox Brothers is by far my favorite BBQ joint in Atlanta. I always say if you can't smell the BBQ before you walk in its not real BBQ. You can literally smell the grill as you're passing the restaurant! I highly recommend the frito pie and the baked beans and pulled pork are a must. The white BBQ sauce should be used on the chicken and the banana pudding is the best option for dessert. Parking can be a bit of a nightmare so be prepared for that.
First time visiting this place with family. Have a pulled pork sandwich with a side of macaroni and cheese. Food was delicious and service was wonderful. Priscilla did a good job of servicing our partyWe were fighting over the corn muffins and they were absolutely the best I've had. Would get 5 Stars but I thought it was a little pricey. Need a kids menu because at $8 for a sandwich and side is high for our 18 month-year-old grand-baby.
I love D.B.A.!!! I suggest the St. Louis Ribs or the Turkey BLT. The wings & brisket are great too. If you are up there on a Sunday try the fried chicken – it’s one of the best that I have ever had. For sides I suggest the brussel sprouts and baked beans. The cream corn is another great choice, and you can't go wrong with the sweet potato tater tots. The service and atmosphere are great too. Five stars!
This is one of my FAVORITE BBQ PLACES IN ATLANTA. The only reason why I'm knocking down a star is because the WAIT is ridiculous sometimes and very limited parking, but the FOOD IS FIVE STARS. I'm all about this life from the meat (rubs, brisket - lawd have mercy), to the sides (mac n cheese, brunswick stew), to the sauces....you can't go wrong. You must go here and you won't be disappointed.
There are no words to describe how delicious everything at this place was!! Ok so I'll start with the fact they have amazing happy hour specials ( winning ) we ended up ordering like 1 of everything, my faves the chicken sausage and the BBQ crablegs, the jack daniels baked beans and Lord the homemade pound cake! Our Ashley knew her liquors. This is our new happy hour for sure.
