Save your money! Overpriced & it nothing special. My kids can do better! Food & management are suffering greatly. Better off going to big daddys on old national

Decided to try this place as it was right across the street from my hotel. I went there for lunch not really knowing what to expect. I had the pulled pork on toast with the spicy BBQ sauce. The side item I had was the collard greens and mac-n-cheese. The food was amazing the service was friendly. Could not have... More

Being from the New Hampshire, real, authentic BBQ is not the standard here. This restaurant came highly recommended from our hotel staff nearby. We arrived at This is It and found it quite busy. There was a large amount of choices for different dinners and side dishes. My wife and I each ordered different dinners. HUGE portions! Reasonably priced. The... More

Having listened to their ads on the radio for several months, I thought that they were just another restaurant. So I really didn't believe the hype. But, I'm here to tell you, that this is one of the absolute best restaurants I have ever visited. From the time that you are welcomed at the door to the efficient staff to... More

We were in Atlanta for a family reunion in May 2013. Everyone recommended THIS IS IT as the soul food place to try. When we arrived at the establishment located near the airport, the line went right out the door. We ordered bbq spareribs, macaroni & cheese, fried chicken wings, potato salad, cole slaw, sweet potato soufflé, collard greens, pineapple... More

The name says it all! The food here was fabulous and abundant! My friend had pork chops and even though he is a big eater, he could not finish this portion. I had a chopped chicken sandwich - probably the best I have ever tasted. The baked beans were also exceptionally good and had a generous helping of meat and... More

They harp on "the rib tips" however, the quality on Camp Creek Pkwy is average, and the quality of all the food in Decatur is sub par. I must admit they have a very food Spinach casserole, however, EVERYTHING is over priced. Sincerely.
