Harold's has been serving sliced pork sandwich's and the best Brunswick stew in the same spot in Atlanta, since 1947. The place is now under the management of the grandchildren of the original owner. I wish they would put a branch in the Atlanta Airport. They would make a killing! Cash only!

Don't understand what all the fuss is about. Just average BBQ. Claustrophobic seating-- wait staff can barely squeeze their behinds between chair backs. Only thing that stands out is the crackling bread (it's the only place I know that still serves it). If it's great BBQ you are seeking, this is not the place. If you want very greasy fingers, sticky red-checked plastic tablecloths, the homey atmosphere with the gum-popping waitress and regulars who all seem to know each other, etc., this is it.

There is a reason this place has survived in such a crappy location in town, the food is great and reasonable priced. The place is always packed for lunch. Get there early or late if you want a table.

This is one of the best BBQ places in South Atlanta. They have all varieties and types of BBQ for the lunch and dinner crowd. The place is crawling with both local and state politicians and celebrities. Great place for a quick bite or a laid-back business lunch.

My fiance & I recently did a cross country foodie road trip & found this to be one of the best rib spots in the US. Definitely worth a stop!
