1. Tom, Dick & Hank 294 Ponce De Leon, Atlanta, GA 30308 (Midtown)

This love story started with few guys who love meat and want to share it with the rest of the city. Pork, chicken, and sausage anchor anchor this stand, but their smoked turkey ribs are something of succulence you won’t find anywhere else. This shack on Ponce is how real ATL BBQ begins.

2. Twin Smokers BBQ 300 Marietta St NW, Atlanta, GA 30313 (Downtown)

Meat scientists installed two massive smokers at this Atlanta BBQ spot and used a proprietary blend of Texas mesquite and post oak for the perfect pink flavor ring. They’ve taken the best of all the US’s ‘cue, given it a dirty South twist, and piled it on a plate for you. Their slogan is something we should all live by, “BBQ Bourbon Atlanta”.

This Sandy Springs meatery is deep with seating and flavor. The brisket and pork are on-point, but the fried beef bologna sandwich is a hidden gem. No matter where you sit in their long dining room, your clothes will absorb the wafting aromas of tons of beef, and the opposite sex will love you for it.

Sure, they've got a lot of beer, but you should also try the Tavern Taters that're topped with house-made beer cheese, jalapeños, crispy bacon, scallions & sour cream and go perfectly with an IPA.
