If you have the time, come here for the best mixed BBQ in the city area, IMHO. We variously had beef steaks, chicken wings, and the best beef ribs ever. If we are in Atlanta again at the same time as you are, don't come here! We had several delicious draught on-tap Sweet Water beers (another Atlanta secret) and enjoyed... More

You can smell the BBQ before you enter and it doesn't disappoint! Food is tasty and plentiful though chicken fried ribs are probably not good for the soul. Booking is a must as it's so popular and there is extremely limited parking. But it's great genuine food that gives 2 meals per portion if you have a combo meal. Came... More

As of 1/1/2017 they have an 85 on the health score. Not my ideal rating.... for a place serving fresh veggies and pork, this kind of worries me.

This place is outstanding. It has been my bbq joint of choice for a decade. Constantly adding new items to the menu, while always keeping the oldies. Just wish it wasn't so good so the wait wasn't so long!!! Bravo Fox Bros.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Atlanta, and definitely the best barbecue!. The only complaint is that there is often a long wait to get a table (in other words, it has great barbecue and everyone knows it!!), but we just get a draft beer and enjoy the wait outside because it's worth it.

I drove to Atlanta with my son to see a football game on New Years Day, and looked to trip advisor for a BBQ place. I am so glad I choose this one. It was hands down the best brisket and ribs i have ever had!! My son had the ribs, brisket, smoked chicken wings, and the chicken( he's a... More

Excellent and attentive service with delicious bbq food. Especially enjoyed the ribs, sauce and pecan chocolate tart. Sides of mac & cheese, tater tots and cole slaw were good, too.

Went to Fox for a year end dinner. Without question Fox is the best BBQ in all Atlanta. Having been to many BBQ restaurants they cannot compete with the food and service you get at Fox.Their brisket and ribs are a must have.

We had our fill of turkey and ham thus decided upon checking out Fox Brothers Barbecue. They didn't disappoint us..the ribs were moist and tender. Ordered the combo dish so I would have left overs for later, and friends ordered barbecue chicken. And loved their chocolate pecan pie and banana pudding as well! Check them out! Line maybe a little... More

I came here by recommendation . The meat did not disappoint. I had the chicken and ribs combo with greens and mac and cheese. I must say that the meat was well seasoned and moist. The ribs were not the most tender but they paralleled some of the best that I have had. The chicken was excellent! I did not... More
