Good food close to the Emory campus on Clairmont. Small inside so it can be crowded. Finger-licking good. They will deliver or make an order to go.

Went there on a Sunday at 7:00 PM, they ran out of pork, beef, pulled chicken. Ordered three half chickens. I really liked the smoking and flavor. The Cole slaw is vinegar based, but good. The beans spicy and tangy, the mac and cheese very rich. Novel way to serve on metal trays.

Some of the best bbq in Atlanta. The sandwiches are huge and my wife and I usually split a brisket sandwich. The macaroni and cheese is just awesome. Great fries with or without their seasoning. If you are there on a day when they have beef ribs go for it! Seating can be a little limited when they are busy.

We went on a Friday night and it was packed with Emory students. The line was long, but it moved fairly quickly. The food was good - Most of us had pulled pork. I had mac and cheese and collards - really liked the mac and cheese, collards were ok. My mother had the chicken salad and loved it. Service... More

We had heard raves about the restaurant from other guests at the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge during our 8 weeks stay here in Atlanta. We had guests coming from out of town and suggested they meet us there since we had heard good reviews. We were the last to get the beef brisket, but the other members of the... More

Community is the best BBQ in Decatur, maybe Atlanta. This is one of those places that will be around long after others pop up and close. The veggies are Outstanding. The meat is superb. Try all the sauces.

Very average food. Collards were over-seasoned and over-cooked. Fat Matt's collards are much better. Some type of blue substance found frozen in ice cube in drink. Manager couldn't have cared less.

My family and I were trying to decide what to have after running errands most of the day. I remembered that someone recommended Community BBQ and I was in the their neighborhood. 7pm on a Saturday evening, the place was packed to the gills with the line just about out of the door for take out orders. We got to... More

Service is fast and with a friendly smile, and laugh. Ordered brisket and fries. Brisket was smoked to perfection with nice pink ring. Fries are seasoned, fresh cut and crispy - perfect. I wish they had gravy as a side for the fries to balance the saltiness.

Thank globtratta
