We like to try out a new place every time we come to Athens. This place did not disappoint. The sides were good home cooking to accompany the tasty BBQ and other meat options.

Dawg Gone has the best ribs I've ever eaten. The green beans and mac-n-cheese were good too. Wear your rib eating shirt (I didn't) and dig in. You won't be sorry!
