Overrated. I was disappointed. Service was good, portions were good but my meats were dry and overcooked. I had the wings, brisket and ribs. While the flavor was good, the meat was dry. It tasted as if it had been reheated. My green beans

Look to Fox Bros. for great barbecue as well as innovative and creative ideas that are delish! Try their "Burger" - proof positive that there can never be too much of a good thing. Heaven on a bun! Ribs are great. Brisket is divine - Texas

I read a lot about the place and took a road trip hoping for something good but soon realized why Atlanta is not known for its BBQ. I like me meat pink but not my pig. The only place I have ever been to that messed up Mac and Cheese, cold

I used Fox Bros to cater my rehearsal dinner because we love their food and wanted to do something casual. Our delivery time was set for 6:45, at 7:15 we called and were told the van was 10 mins away. At 7:40 we called again and learned

Chopped brisket fully integrated with bits of flavor-bomb fat, gut-brick chili-cheese tots, hulking bricks of butter-slathered jalepeno cornbread and spicy collards are on many southerners ideal menu. Fortunately for Atlantans, Fox Bros

Pros: Amazing brisket, tots, and friendly folks on staff

Cons: It's a bit pricier than most typically pay for BBQ

.

Fox Bros BBQ quickly became an ATL staple. How could it not be, a creative yet "meat & potatoes" menu, quick service and a family owned vibe has made this BBQ joint one of the best places to chow down in the city!

Pros: quick service, delicious food, great atmosphere

Cons: not for the veggie loving types...

Fox Brothers is excellent! The bbq stuffed jalapeno poppers are a must-order. The staff is friendly and efficient. I have been there many times and have had just about everything on the menu, and would recommend the ribs. No matter what sauce you prefer, you will be pleased when you dine here!

Probably won't go back. Brought visitors from Illinois and was disappointed. Fried mac was bland ---- well, about everything on the sides was bland. Cold slaw and Pickles were good but who can mess-up a pickle? Ribs were way too

This is one of the better bbq joints in town if you like texas style BBQ. I haven't had a bad meal yet. Good ribs, sandwiches, chicken, stew. etc. Try the Beef short ribs that they have on Thursdays. They gave me so much i literally ate

Pros: Good smoked meat

Cons: sometimes overcrowded

Recently ate at Fox Brothers and had a nice experience. They have Fat Tire on the beer list, so that balances out the typical beers. The food was tasty and well priced for the amount of food. Nice to have a place to get BBQ near

Pros: Tender Meat

Cons: Sticky Condiments

The overflowing parking lot should tell you a lot. There is rarely a place to park during the weekday evenings and the weekends are impossible. Fox Bros has blown up since it first opened. Come try some of the best BBQ in the South.

Pros: Best BBQ and sides in town

Pros: Great food, service, atmosphere

Cons: parking can be tricky and timing of the courses (appetizers, main dishes) could be watched a little better.

Hubby and I went the other night because a friend raved about the place. The husband is a barbecue fanatic, so we were excited about trying it. We were very excited to see the smoker in the parking lot, and the atmosphere is awesome, and

Even though it's been open for quite a few weeks now, I just had a chance to try Fox Bros. last night. I live in Kirwood so it's only about 5 minutes from my house and now I'm mad at myself for waiting so long. I went with 7 people

Pros: Food, service, value all wonderful. Easy parking.

Cons: None really, cole slaw wasn't the best.

First of all we tried the Texas fries. The fries are topped with cheese, jalepeno's chopped, and brisket.\r
The brisket had so much fat on it we ended up with a small salad plate of fat on it. Don't worry about the jalepenos. They are

jbt520 & saaron01 must work for/own another bbq restaurant in the atl. While everything is not perfect every night, I cant see how any meat eating human can not fall in love with Fox Bros BBQ. Try it for yourself!\r

The best thing I had on my combo plate was the chicken -- it was moist, juicy and great with sauce. The ribs and brisket would have been good too if they hadn't come out cold/lukewarm. I would have sent them back, but our waitress was

Pros: Some of the best tasting 'cue in the city, plus good sides.

Cons: Slow service, buggy patio.

I went to Fox Brother's on a fairly busy Wednesday night. The service was fine and you would expect it to be, as there were at least 6 servers and 2 managers on the floor. I ordered the brunswick stew as a starter and it was decent, but

While being longtime fans of Smith's Olde Bar on Piedmont, we became even bigger fans of the que served by the Fox Brother's. And now, they finally have their own place on DeKalb Ave. The wait was more than worth it. I thought I was
