I love the real smell and taste of the BBQ at Williamson. I used to go to Sonny's BBQ until I got sick on liquid smoke. Never again.

It doesn't get much better if you like BBQ, and you don't have to worry about what you want to eat... there is a sampler platter that covers all your cravings. Their sauce very good, and the atmosphere is cute.

We stayed overnight in Marietta and went to Willilamson Broth for BBQ. I had the sampler platter and my friend had the baby back ribs. My was good but his ribs were the winner. We got there near closing and the service was not very attentive but the food outweighed the service. We were not offered any choice of sauces... More

When you first enter the restaurant you enter a small shop where you can purchase: rubs, sauces, fresh pork skins, shirts, and other items. While waiting to be seated, you can watch the staff cook and place meat on the open fire pit within the restaurant. The place is huge with plenty of space for large parties. The food here... More

We love the sauce so we decided to try the restaurant. "A" for quaint atmosphere. "C" for BBQ. Nothing was bad at all just nothing stood out. Food was solid average...service a notch below that.

I have eaten here a number of times over the past 20 years. It had been about 5 years since the last time. There was a light crowd from what I remembered last. I had baby back ribs, collards, black eyes and stew. Cold draft beer. I would really give them 3.5 stars instead of 4. The food was all... More

I have been driving past this place for a few years, and every time I did, I promised myself I would eat there. Well, finally did it. Now I can't help but think of all the meals I could have enjoyed. I had ribs and fries. The ribs were so well cooked they literally just fell off the bone. They... More

Well established restaurant that seems busy all the time. First time visiting for dinner, and did not have BBQ. Instead we enjoyed a nice, filling chicken meal cooked over an open grill. They provide a complete meal, and only downer was table next to us was loaded small children who could not behave and Mothers could not control. One of... More

Service is okay and so is the food. I have had better. Ample parking and plenty of room inside. Could be cleaner and more light inside.

We get chopped outside BBQ Pork Plate. Always comes with plenty of outside. Pork is cooked in Restaurant where you can see it being cooked over wood pit. Be sure to take a jar or gallon of their BBQ sauce with you. We also buy their pepper and have for years.
