Fox Bros. BBQ Voted Best Barbecue on Access Atlanta

Best of Barbecue by Access Atlanta & AJC

Fox Bros. BBQ continues to rack up the awards around town. In September, it was voted by the people as the Best Barbecue in Atlanta on Access Atlanta. Fox Bros.seems to be working its way up as the clear favorite for the citizens of Atlanta. I can't say I disagree, they have some of the best BBQ I've ever had.

The staffers at AJC/Access Atlanta disagree, their top pick was The Swallow at the Hollow in Roswell. This has long been one of my favorites since it's so close to where I live. The Swallow definitely has some of the most loyal customers I've seen. This place is always busy. I recommend trying their ribs for something different, these oven-cooked ribs are excellent. Also don't miss the mac n cheese, some of the best in the metro.

So who's right here? The people or the staff at AJC/Access Atlanta. It's tough to say. I think both restaurants offer excellent food and unique appeal. If you're looking for a trendy spot ITP then Fox Bros. is definitely you're place. If you're OTP and ready for some good food and live music, then The Swallow is the only option. Let us know what you think.

JR's Loghouse (Norcross, GA) :: Review

JR's Loghouse
6601 Peachtree Industrial Blvd.
Norcross, GA 30071

To make this simple, the good thing about JR's is the stew. If you come here make sure you get the stew, and make sure you don't get the ribs. That's pretty much all you need to know, but I'll go into a little more detail below.

The Restaurant
I will give this place props because its good for big groups. We came here with about 8 people and there were several very large tables to easily accommodate us. The wait staff was also very friendly and did a great job of refilling all of our drinks. The whole log cabin vibe is kind of fun and they had a huge flat screen TV for me to watch as I waited on my guests.

The Food
Fist off, the sweet tea meets the Southern standard. We tried the ribs and they were awful, sorry but they were. Tough, not much meat, I didn't eat more than one. The one thing I finished on my plate was the stew. This would be the place to go if you're in the mood for some tasty and hearty Brunswick stew. The macaroni and cheese was decent in my opinion too, I'd definitely order it again. Others in my party didn't like it though, so maybe it's more of a personal preference.

Two reasons to come: Stew and huge TVs.
