Do not let the exterior scare you away from the amazing bbq that awaits. Ribs were wonderful but would ask for sauce on the side so you can add to your taste. Brisket collard greens, fried green tomatoes all were deliscious. A return trip is assured

Didn't know what to expect, but was quite excited after reading the reviews. No frills beautiful smokey meat and a large selection of sides and extras. The portions were huge, no scrimping If you don't mind eating from disposable plates this is a fab place honest food at a great price

We visited this hidden gem on 9/29/16. The staff was very friendly and welcomed us, especially with it being my first visit. I had the bbq sampler, which included pulled beef, pulled pork, ribs, Que bites (fried pieces of pulled pork wrapped in a crispy coating) Texas toast, and a side. The meat was SO TENDER!!!!! OMG the smokey flavor... More

The food was amazing. The staff was awesome. This was my favorite meal of our trip. The kids loved it too. We tried several dishes and both sauces and all were top notch. If I ever visit Atlanta again, I'll be back for sure! Thanks for the delicious & fun meal.

We visited last night after hearing a lot about the place. Their motto - We Ain't Pretty But We're Good" - is spot on. The staff is SUPER FRIENDLY - just amazing. Really enjoyed talking with them. Had the pulled pork and the shredded beef. Both were very good - highly recommend with their "hot" bbq sauce. Topped it off... More

The exterior is doubtful and a teeny bit scary . Especially because i was a tourist , i wanted the real southern meal experience and i went there based on trip advisor rating & i wasn't sure i was at the right place. . Its not a high end dining experience. Its more of a diner with a cultural twist... More

We were coming from a meeting and smelled the BBQ a block away so we followed our noses and finally found the spot to great smell was coming from. The place is a hole in the wall, but the food is to die for and was very crowded, so you know what that means, yep great tasting food!!! I had... More

When we arrived in the car park I actually was not sure whether to enter the place or not. Nothing much has been done about the outside of the restaurant in a long time and even the inside is pretty basic. But then ... they focus on the food and they are good at it. As we did not really... More

Our shuttle driver took us there our first nite in Atlanta. My husband wanted the beef ribs and I wanted the wings. But it was late and they were out. So I got the smoked turkey breast, potatoe salad and sweat potatoes and he got the brisket, red beans and rice and wedges. It was the best barbecue we have... More
