I am a HUGE fan of BBQ--it's meaty, undoubtedly American, stick to your ribs good food. And while I do enjoy making your typical pulled pork or baby back ribs (crock pot style) every now and again, it is something I would just rather leave to the pros. I just don't have the resources to create that signature smokey flavor that BBQ houses are able to do.
Now, I'm not sure how well Atlanta is known for their barbecue, but this weekend, Ruben and I decided to try Fox Brothers BBQ, the "#1 Rated Atlanta Barbecue."
When we got there on a Thursday night, there was just an hour left before closing time, so we didn't have to wait very long before we were seated.
We started out with a round of the Half & Half, which consisted of fried pickle chips and jalapeno chips. It was battered fried perfection! Meaning: you could still taste the food after it's been covered in fried batter! (Note to self: I really need to stop eating fried food. REALLY.) Now, this was a "half" portion of the Half & Half, and we barely could get through half of it. With that said, I couldn't even imagine what our main dishes would look like.
Between Ruben and me, we ate the pulled pork, ribs, beef brisket, wings, jalapeno cornbread, coleslaw, mac and cheese, and collard greens. A lot of food, I know, but that's how we roll. I'm only going to say one thing about our BBQ dinner--if you're going to serve BBQ meat without any BBQ sauce, it better be the most succulent, moist, tender, fall of the bone kind of meat you've ever eaten. And this BBQ, my friends, well, let's just say it needed a whole lot of sauce.
Have you ever been to Fox Brothers BBQ? Do you think they have the best BBQ in Atlanta?
