    It’s all about the gut-bombs at the icon that proved great barbecue is possible in Atlanta. Tater tots covered in chili and cheese, & short ribs are staples that make this the only spot you should go. Read more

    A truly Texan-style BBQ, the Fox Bros brings a great vibe with excellent BBQ. When visiting this week, make sure to try the incredible beef short ribs, though they are only available Thursday. Read more

    Meat takes the spotlight at this world famous BBQ joint, but vegetarians can enjoy a terrific meal here as well. Try the griddled pimento cheese sandwich paired with one of many delicious side items.

    I'd recommend going splitsies on the Everything Plate - choice of four meat portions: pulled pork, beef brisket, 4 chicken, ribs, 4 wings. Also, don't overlook the jalapeño cornbread w/ honey butter!

    The brothers are doing the Lone Star state proud. You've got 2 slices of thick, buttered Texas Toast with sliced brisket that's peppery, juicy and just all sorts of good, mustard, pickles and onions. Read more

    As far as veggie sandwiches go, the smoked portobello sandwich one is meaty, messy fun, with its oozy pimento cheese and pickled jalapeños. Plus, it's on CL's 100 dishes to eat before you die list! Read more

    The Little Five Points favorite serves up Texas-style faves like pulled pork and Flintstones-sized ribs. The sides are equally tasty, especially the mac and cheese, tater tots, and Brunswick stew. Read more

    Pulled Pork, delicious, melt in your mouth goodness. I don't care for the sandwich Coz' the bread just waters down the pork taste. Only negative is I wish they had a selection of sauces on the table..

    After rub and brown sugar are massaged onto the St. Louis-style ribs, the racks are smoked over hickory wood until the bones are easy to pull apart. Go ahead, lick your fingers in public. Read more

    Hollowed-out jalapeños are filled with cheddar and cream cheese, pulled pork, and spicy barbecue sauce. Then they're battered in seasoned flour and breadcrumbs and fried to order. Read more

    All is still alive at Fox Bros. and we just wanted to remind you that if you haven't had your fill of chili in a Fritos bag recently, you are missing out on one of Atlanta's all time great dishes. Read more

    Everything is good. Seriously, you can't go wrong here. We love the Texas fries (as an entree) with beef brisket. The quartered chicken is great and so is the pulled pork. The beans are *outstanding*.

    The enormous beef rib packs an enormous punch. If you're able to get one (they sell out often) you can find out why it's one of CL's 100 dishes to eat before you die. Read more

    Sooo good. Portions are big. The 3 meat combo platter way too much food. Could've split the sucker. Beef ribs and brisket way better than pork ribs and pulled pork in my opinion. A bit of a wait.

    All about gut-bombs at the icon that proved great BBQ is possible in Atlanta. Tater tots covered in chili & cheese, massive short ribs, Frito pie & fried mac & cheese are staples. [Eater 38 Member]

    Get the sampler plate and share it. It's too much for one person but a great way to try a few things. Oh and did I mention the banana pudding?!

    The beer is reasonably priced. Make sure to try their wings - they have the best sauce on the planet. I'm also a big fan of the chopped brisket and ribs. The pulled pork is good but doesn't outshine.

    Fox-a-Roni (their creamy Mac n Cheese topped with their delicious Brunswick Stew) plus a pulled pork sandwich is the way to go! Top with a combo of the sweet and the more tomato-y sauces on the table

    Had the ribs sandwich and it was good/on par with Community BBQ. The Lopez (tater tots) was the best part of the meal. Don't know if it's worth the long wait but definitely good food!

    Try the Chicken Fried Ribs. They will blow your mind! We also had the Special "Flinestone sized" Beef short rib which was exactly as described and even more delicious.

    BBQ lovers rejoice! Fox Bros Bar-B-Q is an Atlanta institution for a reason. Make sure you try the Frito Pie, and check out Dine ATL On Demand to see our behind the scenes look at the restaurant.

    Surprising fantastic vegetarian food! Portabello burger and side of jalep cornbread: both delicious. Watch out for the spicy jalep mayo in the burger (get it on the side if you are a woos :) ).

    Try Cayrum, its a dark rum aged 3 years and then infused with all natural ginger and honey. Its great as a chilled shot, on the rocks, ginger ale/beer, juices or Red Bull. Theres nothing like it! Read more

    I enjoy the ribs here at Fox Bros. Also on the side menu, their frito'pie is real good and the jalapeño cornbread is my personal favorite. Parking is limited at times and a wait is normal. Enjoy

    Here's your full meal: cold beer, the Lopez, smoked chicken wings, beef rib (on Thursdays and Saturdays) otherwise the ribs or 'The Fox Bros Burger' and finish off with the banana pudding. Enjoy!

    Ok so we all know the brisket is tasty. However, they had this special sweet potato cheesecake & it was awe inspiring. I bake and taste everything sweet potato related & this was the best I ever had!

    The Texas brothers that bring barbecue to the hungry masses bring some of the Texas love to their version of a bloody mary. It all starts with the Texas-made Tito’s vodka, Zing Zang bloody mary mix. Read more

    The beef brisket is a must-have at the award-winning outpost with a divey dining room and huge patio. Eat up, and then take home a bottle of the knock-your-socks-off sauce.

    Brisket, ribs, pull pork are all good. Great sides like collard greens, stewed green beans, baked beans, and potato salad. I don't believe you will be disappointed by anything you choose.

    Check out Fox Bros BBQ as it was featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives for Amazing BBQ serving up homemade smoked brisket and pork. Try the Fox Burger which is actually brisket. Read more

    Quite possibly the best tater tots in Atlanta. Perfectly fried so they're crispy, crunchy on the outside and tender inside. Lightly seasoned with salt and (I'm guessing) Old Bay. Delicious!

    to say the "burger" is delicious would be an understatement. tender flavorful brisket smothered in perfectly melted pimento cheese topped with 2 slices of bacon and nestled between grilled bun. YUMMM

    Excellent! The mac & cheese was so good, the coleslaw was fresh and deli-like and the chicken and brisket was delicious!

    "The Lopez" appetizer (tater tots covered in brisket chili and melted cheese) is good, but their "Fox-a-Roni" (mac & cheese smothered in Brunswick stew) makes my list of the best things ever.

    The Greens Beans are good & they have that kick I like. I love the Beef Brisk! Wings are great smoked. I love it. Friendly & inviting atmosphere. Pretty women. This is the spot.

    Consistently rated some of the best bbq in the country, Fox Bros. is where to go for grabbing a cold one and some of their famous brisket while taking in the sun.
  • Chelsea M.
    If you go at a popular time, it will be super crowded. But worth it. Sweet tea, pulled pork BBQ, and be sure to have the Fox-r-oni

    Fox Bros. has the market cornered for Texas-style barbecue, and the humongous beef rib is downright Flintstonian. Read more

    Fantastic sauce! I like the rib meat sandwich when they have it, but be ready for salty, savory decadence. The pulled pork with a Long Hammer IPA is always a winner.

    For non-meat eaters...try the portobello mushroom sandwich. It's served with jalapeño pimento cheese. Trust me...just do it. Get it to-go unless you like smelling like Mel from Mel's Diner.

    You might need to split the Fox Bros burger to avoid a self-induced coma. It's amazing! Also the fried pickles and jalapeño chips are awesome ;)
