Ordered the bbq plate and two sides. The coleslaw and baked potatoe was ok. But the bbq pork was a big disappointment. The tea was good but I can make that at home. It's not bbq if you don't have a smoker right?

My wife and I went to Adams BBQ for lunch. I ordered their 5 oz. lunch size hamburger steak with grilled onions. I ordered french fries and cole slaw and Texas toast with it. Everything was perfect.

Food was fantastic and the employees are always nice and friendly. They make you feel like home. They greet you with a warm and inviting welcome. You feel as if you're at Grandma's house. Great atmosphere for children. My grandkids love going to Adams. The best barbecue in north Ga

They have the most amazing sweet potato soufflé... The ribs are falling off the bone good. The pulled pork was great too. Nothing bad to say except watch the day because in certain days they close early.

My first visit today at lunch with a couple of coworkers. Our servers and service were excellent. Super friendly, prompt, etc. The prices were good as well. The food, was just average. All three of us ordered the BBQ pork. We were all disappointed to see that the meat came drowning in sauce. Good BBQ is about the meat...not a... More

We eat here probably once a week. We have never had a bad meal. They have a decent sized menu and offer a lot of sides. The Brunswick stew is wonderful. The fried okra is some of the best around. I usually get a salad with boiled eggs and my husband has tried almost every meat there. My dad loves... More

The BBQ is pretty good, nothing crazy to talk about like it is the best place to eat. Better places to eat in Cartersville in my honest opinion.
