if you love meat (incl. meat as side dish), then this is definitely the right place. The only con is that your clothes need to go to the laundry service after the visit (smoke is in the air...)

It's Georgia so authentic smoked BBQ Is expected and this restaurant has it. My disappointment is that l spent over $45 for wings and ribs for two people and the slab ribs (not baby back) we received weren't meaty at all, the macaroni had no flavor and seemed to be made with cheese wiz, the greens were just ok and...

This little out of the way restaurant has some of the best BBQ in the Atlanta area! The price was very reasonable and the sides were great.

On our way to the repair shop we passed several restaurants, it was lunchtime when we left the shop and my son wanted some BBQ. The place was packed, mostly by people that worked at the Atlanta airport, or Delta Airline HQ. The line was out... More

The desk clerk at our hotel recommended this place & said they have the best sides of any BBQ place in Atlanta. We found that to be true (although they are somewhat small) & the BBQ was great too!

Coming in to town from out of state I checked website ratings and this place, plus favorable feedback from locals got my appetite up. See the McSwains commercially done webpage. Low and behold the place looks like a rundown deserted home converted to restaurant. Menu is hand writ behind the counter and difficult to navigate, but the staff are friendly... More

Decided to stop here and get dinner and boy am I glad I did. I had the wings and the pork ribs and they are to die for. I put the medium bbq sauce on both and it had a good flavor with a little kick to it. If you are near the airport, then you need to get Pit... More

This place is always excellent... Large lunch crowd.. but it's worth it. Try the pulled pork or the ribs. They also have daily specials.
