I saw this place on a "Best BBQ in Georgia" TV show a few years ago. I finally tried it. The little BBQ joint is in the middle of what has to be one of the most run-down neighborHOODS in Atlanta. Like the majority of the neighborhood, this building was falling apart. So much so we almost didn't go in. The interior was very small and it was a good thing there were only a few other people there.
On the other hand, the food was pretty good. I ordered a burger and fries. The remainder of my party ordered BBQ & fries.
The only complaint was that in this day and age they only take cash money. No one in their right mind would go to an ATM around there. Had they accepted plastic, I'd have tried a BBQ plate and a bowl of the Brunswick stew that is often raved about.
So if you ever happen to be in Lakewood, perhaps visiting a family member at the Federal Prison just down the street, stop in and tell them Von Soest sent you.
