    The chicken was very dry. Not everyone eats bacon . My grandmother from south made wonderful potato salad without bacon. No diverse flavor profiles. I won't be back👎🏻

    Go for the chicken wings as appetizers accompanied by house fried pickles. Then follow through with some ribs and order the Brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes tots! Bomb! Try also the local brews

    Ok, you have to try the smoked wings! No, seriously! These wings are like "CHANGE YOUR LIFE" kind of good..."SLAP YO MAMA" kind of good and don't fool around and have a Shiner Bock with them! Daum!

    Longest wait of my life. We had to wait an hour for our food and they didn't even make our meal free, but the food was good. If you have a few hours and you are hungry go to the smoke ring!

    Wow, what great sides! BBQ was awesome but this is the place to take anyone who doesn't love the smokey flavors to. Really good brisket and peach cobbler rocked to

    Pulled pork
  • Creative Loafing Atlanta
    The baked beans are heavenly: laced with burnt pork & molasses, they'd be a strong competitor at Chomp & Stomp. Crispy Brussels sprouts with maple syrup were an unexpectedly tasty combination. Read more

    Small touches like Edison bulbs, barstools and chairs with a hint of steampunk, Mason jars, and bits of moonshine machinery fill out the sprawling place. Read more

    The food was okay. Not the best bbq I have had but not the worst. They need a little more seasoning on the sides and do not get the 1/2 chicken.

    Food was okay. Had ribs - the standouts were the side dishes. Service was terrible. I won't be making a second trip.

    This Castleberry Hill spot opened late this Fall and is already a contender for some of the city's top barbecue. Go for ribs, brisket, jalapeno cornbread, and cocktails like the boiled peanut martini.

    The name implies a smoking lounge, but it is actually a pretty good barbecue joint within walking distance of the office.

    If you're a bacon lover ask for the bacon marmalade with whatever you order. Its delicious with the mac n cheese.

    Pretty delicious. A really nice build out. Food was really great. I had the pork plate with a side of the bacon and blue cheese potato salad. There was so much on the menu I would have ordered.
