Best

Yes it's Sunday, and we just went to the King Center, to view the new crypt of Coretta Scott King, and her husband, the great Martin Luther King, Jr. We wanted to go to a regular...

Worst

Really disappointed. I was among their first customers when they opened, and been over a dozen times. Had them cater my child's religious thing when he was 8 days old and again ...

DO NOT WANT AGAIN 9/18/2008

i went there for lunch today and was very disappointed. i live very close by so i was excited to have a bbq place i could frequent. while the service was pleasant and the spicy sauce quite tasty, i would not suggest going here. i got the bbq pork plate with pinto beans. the beans were bland and the pork was fatty and ""mushy"". it was almost as if they boiled the meat rather than slow roasted it. had the sauce not been as good as it was i wouldn't have eaten what little i did. the ""texas toast"" was even sub par. just go to Fat Matts or even Fox Bros... more

UMM UMM GOOD 8/25/2008

I WENT HERE ABOUT A MONTH AGO. I WAS KIND OF SCARED TO GET OUT THE CAR BUT LUCKILY I HAD SOMEONE WITH ME. I ORDERED THE RIB PLATE WITH FRIES. THE RIBS AND THE FRIES WERE SOOOO GOOD. I HAD A LOT OF RIBS ON MY PLATE AND I COULDNT EAT THEM ALL. TO SUM IT ALL UP! THE FOOD WAS GOOD BUT I WONT GO THERE AT NIGHT!! more

shoe leather would be better 6/29/2008

I love to try new bbq. The second I walked in the door this bald guy tried to impress me with his knowledge. He tried to make me think he knew what he was talking about. I bet this guy couldn't boil water. The beans tasted like water. The slaw was old. The guy named Paul told me he was the owner. I would be ashamed to tell anyone that. I should have made him try my food and see what he liked about it. I will never go back and will make sure everyone I know won't go. NASTY!!!!!!!!! Cons: everything more

Great meat, but everything else lacked... damn shame. 6/15/2008

Really disappointed. I was among their first customers when they opened, and been over a dozen times. Had them cater my child's religious thing when he was 8 days old and again at his first birthday. Went Sunday for a Father's Day brunch, my choice. Pros: The meat is great Cons: Everything else, including price, is off. more

Not like it use to be 9/28/2007

3 years ago my cousin refered me to Rollin Bones and I loved it second to Fatt Matts. I met one of the owners and got the history of the new business and made this my joint for BBQ. After being away for a period of time, I returned craving for the brisket sandwich on one visit and the ribs on another but walked away very disappointed both times - with the service and the food. Now being from Texas, I was raised in a small city that mastered the craft of smoked BBQ ribs, chicken, brisket, baked beans and potato salad. Stubbs BBQ. I don't know what happened, but I won't be returning to Rollin Bones. I'm going back to Fatt Matts. If it ain't broke don't fix it. Pros: Clean Cons: Parking more

This is the worst BBQ that I have ever had. 9/3/2007

This is the worst BBQ that I have ever had. The sauce is horrible too. An all fairness, I thought the greens were pretty good. The negative reviews done in 2007,in my opinion, represents the food at Rolling bones. I don't understand the positive ratings for this place. I tried this place once and some of my co-workers have eaten at Rollin Bones. They thought the food was awful too. Don't waste your money. For great BBQ try One Star Ranch or Fatt Matts. more

Worst BBQ ever!!!! 9/2/2007

Most of this meal ended up in the trash. The bbq was all fat, the potato salad was awful, and the beens were refried. How can this place call itself a BBQ joint when they sell REFRIED beans???? On top op that, we spent $26 for two plates of this awful food. I have no idea how this place stays in business. Cons: where do I start. Food is awful and over priced, service is terrible. more

Not impressed at all 7/10/2007

I love BBQ, we use to have a slow smoke pit on our backyard.... I was not impressed with this place at all. The pork had no smoke taste to it, the sauce was not spiced well and was a odd color which was not ascetically pleasing (which I know is not the aim of this place but still). I got the potato salad on the side and it was the worst potato salad I have ever had, I couldn't even eat it. It was full of green peppers which were the only things you could taste. I would suggest finding some place else if you are in the mood for good BBQ. more

I Don't Get It 6/2/2007

I moved to Atlanta from Los Angeles and was looking for good BBQ so I tried Rolling Bones based on the reviews on another website. I loved the look of the place but was very disappointed with the food. I had a BBQ pull pork sandwich. It didn't taste like BBQ to me, no flavor to it, including the BBQ sauce. I expected more, this is the south, but I've had better BBQ in Los Angeles and even Sacramento California, go figure! Pros: Looks Nice Cons: Not real BBQ more

Brisket! Oh Heavenly Brisket! Retro-Cool Building! 11/26/2006

Yes it's Sunday, and we just went to the King Center, to view the new crypt of Coretta Scott King, and her husband, the great Martin Luther King, Jr. We wanted to go to a regular brunch, but BBQ, was in the air. Right at the corner of Edgewood/Boulevard, near where my grandmothers furniture store was once located, is Rolling Bone's. It's a great rehab of an old gas station. So nice, so trendy, and a great use of an old building. The draw here is the Brisket. Oh man, so tender, we had to bring a pound home. Thank goodness we took the Marta train over, because of the limited parking. Rolling Bones now qualify's for one of our fave BBQ joints. Pros: Excellent BBQ Brisket! Cool Retro Building! Cons: Parking could be a problem, if driving! more

Too Slick, Too Calculated, Too Packaged 6/28/2006

It ain't Atlanta style pit BBQ. There are several more authentic pits within two blocks but they are not Disneyland squeaky-clean like this. Pros: Okay if you don't know Barbeque. Setting will not make you uncomfortable. Cons: Spendy. False experience. more

Good food but hard to get in and out 5/2/2006

After reading all the reviews, my husband and I ran to the place. We've been looking for good bbq in Atlanta, and since we live in the city it is somehow a hard thing to find. We definitely loved the food (brisket and chicken were delicious). We went at lunchtime when it was packed so it took a little time to get the food but worth the wait. The only 2 reasons why we might not come back would be the constant nagging of the walk up peddlers and the very little parking/driving space. We literally were trapped for 15 minutes leaving b/c there is no room to manuever your car around the drive in patrons. I guess that is to be expected in the city though! Pros: food, cleanliness, atmosphere Cons: parking, peddlers more

I love everything about it! 4/18/2006

Be sure to try the beef briskets. They are so so tender! Pros: Inexpensive, Good food, Friendly services more

Throw out the Pit!!! 6/9/2005

After tasting the food from Rolling Bones, I have promised never to use my own Weber ever again!!! Between the beef brisket (the best I have ever had) and the ribs, I now know what God will be serving in heaven! the place is clean and neat. the staff is kind and always willing to help or to make an adjustment if necessary. You haven't lived until you have their food! Pros: Great Place, Great Food, Great Service more

User review by ihcateht 6/9/2005

Sweet Sauce 5/28/2005

My husband and I did not care for the BBQ at this place. The sauce was vinegar based with a taste of pineapple. It was way too sweet. The actual meet did not have that down home smoked taste. Overall I say don't waste your time. Pros: staff was nice Cons: parking, sauce more

A TASTY SURPRISE 10/17/2004

Found this place on a recent visit to Atlanta after visiting the King Center (within walking distance); excellent food and service, including a most hospitable co-owner...and the sweet tea is not to be missed! Pros: Cost, Positive Atmosphere, Nice music more

Best BBQ in town! 6/17/2004

This place deserves all the accolades it's been getting. The food is scrumptious (you can't beat their BBQ chicken), service is friendly and fast and it's a great-looking spot. These guys have got a winning combination. I love it! Pros: Terrific value, Great food, Friendly service more

Mr. 5/29/2004

Excellent food for good value and a great atmosphere. If cleanliness is godliness, Rolling Bones is it. Pros: Great Value, Clean, Top quality food more

Amazing 5/22/2004

I have become a complete adict for this place. At first you would think it is too cool, hip, or clean to pump out good BBQ. Surprise, it is all about the BBQ, Texas Style. The menu is limited to only Five sides and the rest is all about the Meat. My favorite by far is the 1/2 Pit Grilled Chicken. It is unlike anything else I have ever had. Now, although they recommend having no sauce at all on any of their meat, I prefer a little of the Hot BBQ Sauce on the side with Potato Salad. God, I am salivating already!! Anyway they also have Beef Brisket which is my second favorite, also they have great Ribs, Chopped Pork, and Beef Hot Links. This is a must for BBQ lovers. Pros: Inexpensive, Great Patio, Real Cool/Hip Cons: , Almost Too Clean, Need more locations more
