    The smoked wings are really good. Plus there are a number of sauces you can choose from to apply to your wings. But what I like best, the wings taste good without any sauce added.

    The beast of a sandwich is called the Archie Bunker. This delicious monster of a sandwich is smoked pulled pork on Texas Toast, topped with mac and cheese, sweet BBQ sauce and cheddar cheese. Read more

    Foods good! Price can get away from you but hey Eat Local right? I personally didn't like the spiked root beer at all and I love root beer! :-( BUT over all a great place to eat!

    These roasted wings are great. Definitely giving anyone else a run for their money. Worth trying and testing out different sauces to see which ones you prefer.

    Tuesday Trivia. Format: Team Trivia. Time: 8:00. Notes: Get there 20+ minutes early to score a table. Host doesn't like raunchy names since its a "family establishment"

    Can't go wrong with deviled eggs & the St. Louis ribs, but if the smoked sausage is available, definitely get it.

    Boiled peanuts are kinda gnarly- but everything else is great! I recommend the Archie Bunker and the Jimbo Burger. Mac and cheese is also delicious!

    Pulled chicken salad is hearty & delish. It's not on the menu anymore, but you can request it. I use the sweet BBQ sauce as my dressing instead of the one it comes with :)

    Get the Archie Bunker - it's pulled pork, bbq sauce and macaroni and cheese on Texas toast (bacon optional)! - Kate, Assistant Community Manager

    Take your pick: how many wings can you score? 50,100 or 250? All wings are seasoned and smoked with your choice of plain, buffalo, Hotlanta, burnin’ Sherman, habanero-mustard, and a lot more! Read more

    I rate DBA at about 7 out of 10. The ribs were tender and well seasoned, if a bit scorched. Greens were watery and underseasoned. Smoked wings were good. They forgot to give me my mac&cheese (grrrr).

    The Cheese and Corn Muffins are a must before, during or after your meal. I like to take them home for a late night snack or breakfast.

    Never had good brisket out side of Texas till I found D.B.A. And the ribs and pastrami are also first rate!

    Sundays smoked fried chicken dinner special is hands down the best around. 3pc meal for $15. And worth every penny!!

    As a previous guest bartender here, I can tell you the DBA cocktails are amazing. I recommend the Georgia Mule...or really anything with moonshine.

    Get a Jammer Bomb and the Archie Bunker. Finish it off with The Bart for dessert. Also don't forget about Manly Monday! $1 PBR and all things manly.

    Sure, you could buy bottled BBQ sauce, but making your own is so much better. Join Matt Coggin, owner and pit master, for a class on making your own special sauce. Read more

    Get the grilled creamed corn or sweet potater tots as one of your sides, they're yummy.

    The Archie Bunker is amazing (who doesn't love mac & cheese on a pork sandwich on Texas toast? Mmmm)!

    The Archie bunker never lets me down. The house cocktails are pretty solid but they aren't that strong.

    The free check-in Gumbo is great. A bit expensive, but very good quality. The mac-n-cheese is unbelievable.

    The Moonshine that is sweet is more like a a sweet liquer. Go for Smokier ones, like a fine Scotch with some smokiness to it.

    No matter the meat, the 'cue is always juicy! We also recommend the Texas creamed corn!

    Try the off-menu Apple Pie moonshine. It's like drinking a liquid apple pie. If you're a fan of F/X's Justified, it's what Mags' recipe probably tastes like.

    Just checked in and opened the free banjo whynatte shooter and waiter says they're not doing that anymore. Maybe 4Sqare should take their special off.

    Gotta taste the Atlanta style wings. So good! And if you're bold enough you should order an illegalATLien.
