Heirloom BBQ

Heirloom is one of those hidden gems that really defines what we mean when we use that phrase. Tucked away off 285 in Smyrna, from the outside it looks like an afterthought from the convenience store next door. To drive by without trying the delicious ‘cue would be a horrible mistake, because in a town that loves its ‘cue, Heirloom is among the best.

Ignore for a moment that Chef Jiyeon (Ji-Ji) came to Atlanta by way of pop-stardom in South Korea, and the kitchens of Repast and Restaurant Eugene, while Chef Cody includes a stint at Repast and the Ritz-Carlton on his resume. These are serious chefs, making food that they love. And that you will love, too.

From three types of sauce and a choice of ribs, chicken, or brisket, you’re going to find a combination that works for you. Add a few touches that you don’t find in most smoke-shacks — things like tempura sweet potatoes, or sesame dipping sauce — and you’re on your way to an unforgettable dining experience.

Highlights

Mac 'n' Cheese from Heirloom bbq

Macaroni and Cheese

Mac ‘n’ cheese with a spicy, chili-pepper kick, creamy cheese, noodles with a perfectly soft texture…does it get any better than this? No, it doesn’t, you may stop your internal conversation.

Sweet Beef from Heirloom BBQ

Sweet Beef Sandwich

Marinated beef is smoked for hours and then shredded in this Korean twist on the BBQ sandwich. The meat is placed on a bun, doused in a sweet sauce, and then topped with fried collard greens. It’s got the whole sweet & savory thing down.

Texas Turkey Sandwich from Heirloom BBQ

Texas Turkey Sandwich

This sandwich made from 100% turkey breast topped with apple coleslaw and an onion ring is a fan favorite. The textures and flavors explode for maximum yumminess.
