Reviewed yesterday NEW

A relative who lived in Decatur and attended Emory the past 4 years indicated that for his final dinner in the area before heading out the next morning it was going to be, without question, Community Q. The food, the ambiance, all made it his favorite place.

Sorry I'm boring, whenever I go to Community BBQ I always ask the same! Those magnificent ribs! They're "finger-lickin' good"! Can't advise on sides because for me it's all about the meat! Quick service and friendly staff in a small, cozy joint! The pork aroma will follow you after you leave the spot! Lol

So to be fair, we didn't actually eat here. We drove 45 minutes to try this place while on vacation and at 5pm on a Saturday we were greeted with a "Sorry out of food" sign. So I give them a poor, for poor planning, not because we actually got to eat here...

I’m not a big BBQ fan but since my friend wanted to try this place, I acquiesced. Right on busy Clairmont Rd, it was surprisingly calm and quiet inside on a Friday afternoon. Ample parking for Decatur. Service was quick. The staff was friendly and helpful. The pulled pork sandwich was good and a nice portion. Their sauces are quite... More

Rating a BBQ joint is kind of like being asked which is your favorite child. Tough question. I've had some really great BBQ but none better than Community BBQ in Decatur, GA. I qualify that by saying none better. Certainly had Q as good...just not around here. When you enter this smallish place you know things are happening. The smell... More

My old Uni friend asked me to join him for lunch here, as said I am not a big BBQ fan but he convinced me joining him.....WOW, do I not regret it, this place is simply awesome. I ordered the pulled chicken with 2 sides, 1 side were black eyed beans and the other side was the soup on special... More

Stopped to eat lunch here while passing through based on reviews. Friendly staff offered suggestions since we had never been before. Best mac and cheese and really good pulled pork. Loved that it was served on Texas toast instead of a bun. Looking forward to a return visit

I've had the pulled pork, baked beans, mac & cheese and the Reuben here. You can't go wrong with anything it seems like. When you walk in the door, the aroma hits your nose and you know you've hit the jackpot! You can cheap out and order a water, but I always get a sweet tea with BBQ. Theirs is... More

Best food ever! I think the mac-n-cheese is famous. All the meats are slow cooked and tender. The greens are great and the seasoned fried are the best. Get takeout. :-)
