    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.

    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

    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!

    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.

    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

    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?!

    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 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

    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!

    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

    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]

    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

    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

    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*.

    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

    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.
  • Suja R.
    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 :) ).
  • Ricardo V.
    Ricardo ValdesApril 20, 2016
    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.

    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

    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

    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.

    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!

    Ricky HowellFebruary 16, 2014
    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.

    The wings are stellar, as are all the sides. The brisket and pulled pork can be a bit dry, though. And whatever you do, arrive early and expect to wait!

    The Fox brothers got their BBQ start during "Widespread Wednesdays" at Smith's Olde Bar. Everyone would bring their Widespread Panic bootleg albums and eat all-you-can-handle wings.

    "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.
