Ribs baby back or St Louis style, brisket, pulled pork or chicken. And the best Mac & cheese in town. Nice portions and reasonable prices. Worth a visit.

Stopped by there the other day after taking my Day to visit someone at a local hospital. He loves BBQ so the choice was obvious. We were not disappointed. Doesn't look like your normal BBQ place from the outside. Once you get out of the car you can smell the aroma. We both had pork but the BBQ baked beans... More

Eating our way through Georgia, stopped in Kennesaw and saw Dave Poe's on TripAdvisor. Thought the ribs well cooked and flavorful. Not the best ribs we've had but certainly very good. Pulled pork had a good smoky flavor and let the meat "do the talkin'". Smoked wings were not as tender as we have had, but a good flavor by... More

Lots of great barbecue in this part of the country and in this suburb of Atlanta, but Dave Poe's is the best in town. The pulled pork and 1/2 chicken are terrific, and so are the sides, especially the mac & cheese. There isn't much of atmosphere; the restaurant is in a defunct strip mall (though it's showing signs of... More

I have had quite a few meals here and I have never been dis-appointed. The pulled pork BBQ sandwich is a favorite choice. Baby back ribs YUMMY. I have even ordered a cheeseburger and it too was delicious. Lots of side orders to choose from to complete your meal. Did I forget to say they are very affordable too. I... More

I had lunch there courtesy of my team leader at work. Being that we eat early(11:30am) there was no one there, that immediately drew a flag or so I thought. As the four of us sat to eat, the line grew and grew non-stop. The cashier was a cool guy that broke down everything for us sensing it was out... More

Lot's of places, have trophy's and don't deliver. Dave Poe's is one of those. When people finally figure out that "competition Q" doesn't translate into "everyday Q" of course they SHOULD be disappointed. The pulled pork is adequate, the brisket less so. The sauce is a trickle and I couldn't figure out why someone would rave about the "cheesy wet... More

Dave Poe's is in a strip center and not much to look at from the outside, but has a nice atmosphere inside and really good food. It's counter style ordering, pick up when they call your number. I had the "Redneck Lasagna" which was Mac n Cheese and Brunswick stew- it was absolutely delicious!! My son had the brisket plate... More
