Community BBQ has a great atmosphere and even better food. You must try the mac n' cheese! It reminds me of my grandmother's mac n' cheese. It is also served very fast whether you are eating in the restaurant or getting it to go.

Stopped by for lunch. It wasn't crowded when we got there at 11:30, but started to pickup around noon. We had the brisket sandwich and the pulled prom sandwich which were both great, if I had to choose one though, I would go with the...More

David Roberts delivers the best barbecue in Atlanta. Pork, beef chicken and sausage smoked just right. I like to taste meat not just smoke and that is what you get at Q. The sides star in their own right.

First time here, but I like the pork and beef barbecue which are very good and comparable to Ruby Tuesday at Christianburg, VA a few days ago. However, Community is cheaper and no frills. Quicker service too. A good choice to have barbecue in Atlanta.

The barbecue at Community is in my opinion the best inside the perimeter. The meat is always tender and has a lot of flavor and that smoke ring that is so highly sought after. And beyond that their sides are all really good. I don’t...More
