Okay, so I’m kinda proud of being dubbed the “Food Guy of Atlanta” and I get asked by folks near and far, what is it Atlanta is truly known for from a dining perspective? In essence, what does Atlanta do best? I have a lot of answers to that question but one of those has to be we have kick-ass BBQ, and it only keeps getting better. Atlanta doesn’t focus on one particular region or sauce, or focus on brisket over pork over chicken, etc…we dig it all, and we love our BBQ restaurants, in all shapes and sizes and great stories behind them. Therefore it is a pleasure to give you my top 12 BBQ spots in Atlanta, listed below in alphabetical order.
The pulled pork and the pimento cheese wontons are what I dream about. Owners Howard and Anita Hsu are making darn good BBQ with a an added bit of Asian flavor like their Southern Seoul sandwich with Korean style steak and sriracha.
