This place is awesome, the food is good and the staff is nice. Sometimes there is a wait on the weekends, but it is worth it!

Very good BBQ! They have different kinds of sauce that you can choose from. I love the ranch style display.

Williamson's used to be one of the better Que joints in the north metro, and they're still pretty good. However since they started opening mulitple locations and selling sauce in grocery stores the value isn't as good as it once was.

Pros: Real pit BBQ, funky building

Cons: Quality has slipped with expansion

.

This large, wooden-planked pit house literally rose from the ashes (an early 90's fire nearly closed the doors forever) to become nearly as recognizable of a landmark as its neighbor the "Big Chicken". The sweet, tangy sauce that has become the hallmark of the brothers Williamson is featured early and often. Chopped pork plates with rich brunswick stew and creamy mac and cheese is served right along grilled half chickens with corn on the cob. Fried pickles are a great way to get things started while you look around to notice tons of antique license plates, letters of congratulation from plenty of conservative politicos, and other southern accoutrements. The freshest food will be found during the predictably busier times - so avoid the late tuesday lunches and you'll be fine.

We were recommended by many people as a place to not pass up on a trip out to Georgia. Great bbq, welcomed by a cow's head and open bbq. As the doors open, there is a best of citysearch plaque and as you dig in you will soon know why. I got the combo with ribs, pulled pork, pulled beef, grilled chicken, texas toast, and baked beans. Try the bbq sauce on the table, left feeling full but accomplished!

This is some tasty BBQ. For me the sandwiches are the best and for me that means beef. They have the same sandwich in chicken too. All their sauce comes on the side. Plenty of people skip the sauce all together. My friends and my daughter likes the beef ribs. There aren't any bad side dishes in sight. I recommend lots of sauce on that sandwich and then chow down. You will eat till you pop.

This business has a well-earned reputation for southern ribs and bar-b-q. Once out of the car in the parking lot and your salivary glands will pull you through the rest of the night! Side dishes along with the famous pork or beef bar-b-q or ribs make every meal tast like an upscale tailgate party! Sauces are a little spicy and actually take away from the experience. Early warning on the spice will save a great meal.

I have traveled all over Georgia and everywhere I go I sample the local BBQ there and I must say with out a shadow of a doubt that Williamson Bro's is the best out there!!! I eaten at both locations and have never been disappointed. If you are a die hard fan of BBQ as I am or just want a sampling of Georgia's bests then you got to give Williamson Bro's a try!

The store smelled delicious. I walked in and the place was very small though. The food was great but it was very expensive. There was only like 2 employees obviously working there while I was there. The place was overall enjoyable but not great.

IF IT AIN'T PIG IT AIN'T BAR-B-QUE.... This is a statement of what is what! The pork is what makes this place great. Smoked and cured with a tasty sauce, stick with the chopped pork! Sliced, chopped, inside, outside or mixed it cannot be beat. Sides of stew, garlic bread, onion rings and baked beans make Williamson Bros one of the BEST in TOWN and THE BEST IN MARIETTA! The deserts are also very good and ample. Great food but don't look too close! There may be some cleanliness issues but they are wise to keep the light low and dark walls........

This is our all time favorite BBQ place in Atlanta. We don?t eat at the restaurant much, but we do order a lot of to go food from there. We normally get the pound of pulled pork and a few sides. The pork is always great, and their sauce is amazing. My husband loves their onion rings and baked beans. I enjoy the macaroni and cheese, and chocolate pie. They always offer buns when you order to go, and it makes great leftovers. The ribs are also excellent, and the price is reasonable.

My office has finally caught on to their great BBQ and we often have them cater for us.

Cons: They close pretty early

When you approach the restaurant it has all the apperances of a great BBQ joint. A rusti looking building with thick smokey aroma coming out of the chimney. As you walk in you see a large pit with juicy smoked pork butt sizzling in the wood burning pit. Unfortunately, thats where the magic ends. When the food comes out the meat is a little dry. I had the combo plate and I couldn't taste any smoke flavor in the meat. The BBQ sauce was o.k. but nothing to write home about. The chicken wasn't BBQ''d but cooked in an electric rotissere that's found in a grocery store. Overall, it was very disappointing. Their grilled steak was good though.

Williamson Bros has absolutely the WORST BBQ in the Atlanta area. The pork is terrible, the chicken is terrible. The ribs are passible.
I have eaten in the restaurant only once (could not go back) and their catered food several times and it never gets any better. Very BAD!

Yes we are BBQ snobs. And Atlanta is not Memphis, or K.C., but we do have some of the best BBQ Joints in the S.E. I went here a few weeks back while visiting a few elderly relatives, and this was the only place that wanted to go. Yes it was packed, noisy, and was not up to our Que Standards. The chopped BBQ Pork Sandwich was just mush, and I guess if you are of a certain age, it would be easy to swallow. Ribs were dry, but the worst part was the sauce. I've had better out of a bottle. Prices are right, but the Que is not!

I went and had their Monday special -- steak with two sides for only 9.99. Awesome deal. I think they have a different daily special so I'll have to go back on different days to see. The meat was pretty good tasting and very cheap. I had it rare and it was so soft. I took it home and it still tasted great the next day after I nuked it. The onion strings that came with my steak were awesome! And I Ioved the mash potatoes and gravy too. The service was alright - our server was very nice even though we had to ask for the gravy that was supposed to come with the mash potatoes and even after we had to ask for it, it took a long time for it to get to us. Overall, I enjoyed it and it was definately a great value. Will go back for sure even though I only got 2 onion rings -- I kinda expected a little more onion ring than 2!

As a Southerner I find Williamson Bros a bit over rated. The meat from Beef to Pork to Bird is way to dry. There are times I like BBQ without sauce. Eating it without the sauce at this joint is like eating toletpaper (not that I would know that 1st hand but) Been doing my own at home for almost 35 yrs. There are better BBQ joints out there but you gotta go and find your own.

I really trust citysearch's ratings. Typically I haven't been disappointed yet. But the best BBQ in Atlanta????? It was good, got a full-rack. Someone wrote in their review that they don't remove the membrane on the ribs. This is true, and they are fatty. That being said, they are not fall of the bone either. However they are delicious, just not the best! If you want the best BBQ in the Atlanta area, go to Swallow at the Hollow in Roswell-hands down the best!

My boyfriend and I enjoy eating out quite a bit, and often refer to Citysearch for recommendations. We have never been disappointed, until tonight. We are huge fans of Fat Matt's Rib Shack in Midtown and noticed that it placed 5th on the Best Barbeque list. Since Williamson Brothers was ranked as both the editorial and customer favorites, we couldn't wait to try it. We traveled from south of the airport to Marietta to find the "Best Barbeque" in Atlanta. We must have made a wrong turn somewhere along the way because we didn't find it at Williamson Brothers. First of all, the hostess was really dry and refused to look us in the eye when speaking to us. We started with an order of fried mushrooms. Although they were a bit dry, after drowning them in Ranch dressing, they were probably the highlight of the meal. Our ribs were brought to the table doused with half a bottle of super sweet sauce as if it was the chef's last dish effort to have something that was mediocre upon leaving the kitchen, somehow become slightly edible upon reaching the table. The ribs can be compared to thoste served at Atlanta chain restaurant Sonny's. They were flavorless, too tough, and lacked the smokiness found in great bbq. The baked beans were average in taste and were a bit too runny for me. If you prefer to surround yourself with a diverse group of people, this is not the place for you. Be prepared to watch the Fox News Channel and to see pictures of such "icons" as Newt Gingrich, Trent Lott, and Tom DeLay covering the walls. If you've never left Marietta, this barbeque is king, but if you are looking for the best barbeque in Altlanta, do yourself a favor and head on over to Fat Matt's Rib Shack in Midtown.

Overall I was impressed with WB. Glad to finally find a place that's not a chain restuarant and I don't have to drive to Cheshire bridge to go to. I ordered the sample plate since this was my first visit there. It was excellent and the leftovers reheated up well the next day. I also had the potato skins with pork. They were ok. I have had better, but still good. All of the meat was falling off the bones, which for me is a good sign of BBQ.

I don't get it! Everybody talks how good it is. I've been twice, both times bad food. i went back just to make sure I wasn't missing something. The brunswick stew is like soup! Not Good at all. I ordered onion rings and receives two, yes two rings! And the Bar b que, Well, lets just say, i'd rather do Sonny's where it has some taste and choice of sauce. Maybe it's just a habit for most. Go out and fine some que. There is alot BETTER out there!!!!

Maybe it's because I've been coming here for years, ever since I used to pick it for my birthday as a kid, but I love this place. They make my favorite brunswick stew and their bbq sauce is delicious and sold in stores. Some people I know aren't as crazy about this place but I'll always continue to go here until I'm disappointed. I don't think they're lacking in customers b/c every time I'm there it's packed, even lunch time.

We really enjoy Williamson BBQ and have had the food at catered events as well as dined in the restaurant a few times. We are always happy with the quality of the food but never impressed with the service. We always end up tracking down our server to get something we need or for drink refills. Seems like the take the order and deliver the food and think their job is over. Great BBQ food but the service needs improvement.

my quest for good barbecue in metro Atlanta continues...

disappointed, to say the least. Ribs had excessive fat on them, not enough meat. Sauce was watery & not very flavorful, and my pork sandwich had massive globs of fat in it -- wasn't pulled very well.

I've tried Bar B Q from Memphis and back and this place rocks.
Any kind of plate you want.even fried pickles.
The sauce is excellent. They also cater events.
The sweet iced tea is a great southern treat.

Anyone that knows Q will be dissappointed with the fatty low quality of Williamson's ribs. Not only is the meat quality lacking, the ribs are broiled. All and all I would have to say that this is without a doubt the worst BBQ I ever had, hands down! Even Southern California BBQ was better, and trust me they don't know Q like the south.

Hands down the best BBQ in the city. I read the other review about the service and I couldnt disagree more. My server was very kind and helpful as we had to wait about 45 minutes for another member of our party to arrive. They kept our drinks filled and they were prompt with our appetizers. Grade A service and A+ food.

The food had very good flavor, the only downside was that it was served luke warm. Someone besides our server delivered our food, and the order was not right. When we finally got our order correct, we never saw our server again. She never checked back to see how everything was, nor did she ever clear a plate. We finished our food and waited an additional 5-7 minutes for our server to return. She didn't, so we went to the counter to ask for our check.

I have heard people rave about this place, so i thought Id eat here for lunch.... It was crowded so I figured that had to be a good omen.... wrong. The barbecue pulled pork was dry. The sauce is good but you shouldn't have to douse your meat in it to make it tasty. And the sides.... the sides were really bad. They tasted like the sides you buy in large tubs at your local Kroger. Needless to say this place is waaaay over rated. I don't get it at all, but I don't know why Everyone Love's Raymond is the number one show either, so who am I to say. Drive to Pig-N-Chick in Sandy Springs, if you really want barbecue its worth it.

Pros: Close to my house

Cons: , Lousy sides, Crappy waiters

.

Very good BBQ, some of the best in Atlanta. Good BBQ chicken and ribs.

Wow, what can I say that hasn't been said before? If you don't like the "WB" you just don't like Southern BBQ. Great food, plenty of it, smoked right on the premises. I recommend the All You Can Eat, Outside Chopped, Rings and Slaw combination. You will leave there stuffed and satisfied with barely enought energy left to nap in your office. Service is run-of-the-mill and the ambiance is little better. Who cares? It's the food you want. If you want ambiance, go downtown.

Anyone who rates this place low, clearly is does not know what they're talking about. From the Outside chopped Pork to the beans and slaw, this place is best anywhere hands down. They even have Port Nachos that are the mutts nutz. Go way out of your way to hit this place, its worth it. Marietta, Canton, and Douglasville.

Pros: Sauce/PorK, ALL YOU CAN EAT, EVERYDAY

I have enjoyed the food since the first day they opened. It is by far the best I have eaten. I have recommended it to many friends, which have not been disappointed.

I heard so much about Williamsons until I went to try it. The sauce is flavorless, the chicken was undercooked and the pork was mediocre at best.

Williamson Brothers has, in my opinion, the best barbecue in the Atlanta area. Excellent chopped pork, very little fat, available with or without sauce.

Also, these folks really know how to make Brunswick Stew. Totally awesome.

But I guess the thing that I like most is the fact that their products are consistent. I don't recall ever getting anything there that was not fresh or of good quality.

Been trying to get them to come to Rome, GA for years now!!

Williamson Bros. BBQ was recommended to me by a friend and I would recommend it to another 100 friends. The food and service was great, the portions were very good, although the sides were a little small. Overall a great value for the money.

Williamson Brothers BBQ is great! The ribs are meaty. The brunswick stew is the best with whole pieces of pork and chicken not like most stews - ground up into mush! Great kid friendly place too! Especially if you have younger kids that don't eat BBQ. They have a special kids menu.....chicken fingers are great.

Famous for its barbecue and more, rustic Williamson Bros. cooks meat only the old-fashioned way over wood. The sampler platter gives the uninitiated a full taste of all the goodies. Experienced barbecue fans will focus on the ribs and…
