They have a salad called the kitchen sink which literally has everything in it it is so amazing and the vinaigrette is just perfect. They have pickled beets as a side item which rock my world and the macaroni and cheese is to die for...More

We stop at this establishment on days we are too tired to prepare dinner. The side dishes are awesome especially collard greens and the spicy baked beans. You need to arrive about an hour in advance of closing for your menu preference. Service is mediocre....More

I’m not a big BBQ fan but since my friend wanted to try this place, I acquiesced. Right on busy Clairmont Rd, it was surprisingly calm and quiet inside on a Friday afternoon. Ample parking for Decatur. Service was quick. The staff was friendly and...More

Rating a BBQ joint is kind of like being asked which is your favorite child. Tough question. I've had some really great BBQ but none better than Community BBQ in Decatur, GA. I qualify that by saying none better. Certainly had Q as good...just not...More
