Great smoked BBQ! It's tough to beat the smoke flavor at this joint. The sides are all excellent! Be sure to try the "grown-up" mac and cheese and the brunswick stew. I'm a big fan of collard greens and they have some of the best around when you don't get a plate full of stems. They do close a little early for folks who like to work a little later but it does seem like they adjusted the hours to a later 8 PM close for the summer. Don't bother ordering the BBQ pork sandwich. It hardly has any meat on it for a whopping $4.95 with no sides. But all of the plates are reasonably priced and I bet they'd give you a bun for cheap if you're really looking for a sammy. The BBQ sauce is pretty good, but sometimes a bit too sweet for my taste. Don't know why anyone bothers with the mustard based sauce. This ain't North Carolina!

Pros: smoked meats, mac and cheese, collard greens

Cons: closes early, closed Sunday, pricing on some menu items

I have bbq all my life,but now I have finally found the best. The sauce is perfect. Its a little bit sweet and spicey at the same time, but not too sweet or spicey. The smoked meat could be eaten all by itself ,and TENDER, man its so easy to eat. The baked beans are dark and a little sweet,,,HMMM.. Their mac and cheese,,well you just have to try it ,and you will see... I love this location also,,,but wish they would build a BBQ3 near HIRAM,GA. But its worth the miles...This place is great for catering ...We used to use the other local BBQ places for our work place catering, but Now its only BBQ2 ,Sam and Daves....

the people there were attentive and polite, however, the ribs were overcooked to the point of BURNT...have experienced their food in the past usually with good results (the macaroni and cheese is tremendous and the french fries are way above the usual...i was extremely disappointed in the BURNT ribs that i exposed my out of town company to...it was definitely not worth the distance (25 miles) that i had to drive to get there, and would be hesitant to make that drive again.

The owners do the BBQ national circuit and they have this "hole-in-the-wall" establishment to help cover the costs of their passion for BBQ and boy do they do it good!!! The Pulled Pork is AWESOME and the Brisket is unbelievable. There meat is never greasy, very tender and the portions a very large. The service has always been great, ask for a sample and you may get a free plate of ribs. They are everything you expect from a Southern BBQ restaurant.

The atmosphere isn't the best, but they focus on the food there. If you put this place anywhere upscale it would be packed all day long, their location is kind of out-of-the-way off Whitlock in Marietta.

Pros: the meat cooked to perfection

Cons: the ambience is the only thing that hurts this place

The food is great. Very country type setup. Not in an attractive place but the brisket is great. You will love the sauces . They do not serve beer or wine yet. Very friendly staff.
