The food is excellent and the portions are good. I would have given a full five stars but I felt that the waitress was rushing us. The tables were only about 1/3 filled so it wasn't super busy. The minute we sat down, she asked for our drink order, and then kept coming over every few minutes for our food... More

Great ambiance and local crowd at this top BBQ restaurant. I'm partial to the brisket but the chicken and ribs are great also. Fast service-once you get a table. The wait can be long and parking is a bear so keep that in mind if you are on a tight timetable. But well worth it!

I went here for lunch and the meal was awesome. The BBQ was perfectly cooked. And it came with a side of coleslaw that the waitress suggested I put on top of the BBQ. That was a perfect combo. Loved my meal!

If you have the time, come here for the best mixed BBQ in the city area, IMHO. We variously had beef steaks, chicken wings, and the best beef ribs ever. If we are in Atlanta again at the same time as you are, don't come here! We had several delicious draught on-tap Sweet Water beers (another Atlanta secret) and enjoyed... More

You can smell the BBQ before you enter and it doesn't disappoint! Food is tasty and plentiful though chicken fried ribs are probably not good for the soul. Booking is a must as it's so popular and there is extremely limited parking. But it's great genuine food that gives 2 meals per portion if you have a combo meal. Came... More

As of 1/1/2017 they have an 85 on the health score. Not my ideal rating.... for a place serving fresh veggies and pork, this kind of worries me.

This place is outstanding. It has been my bbq joint of choice for a decade. Constantly adding new items to the menu, while always keeping the oldies. Just wish it wasn't so good so the wait wasn't so long!!! Bravo Fox Bros.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Atlanta, and definitely the best barbecue!. The only complaint is that there is often a long wait to get a table (in other words, it has great barbecue and everyone knows it!!), but we just get a draft beer and enjoy the wait outside because it's worth it.

I drove to Atlanta with my son to see a football game on New Years Day, and looked to trip advisor for a BBQ place. I am so glad I choose this one. It was hands down the best brisket and ribs i have ever had!! My son had the ribs, brisket, smoked chicken wings, and the chicken( he's a... More

Excellent and attentive service with delicious bbq food. Especially enjoyed the ribs, sauce and pecan chocolate tart. Sides of mac & cheese, tater tots and cole slaw were good, too.
