Very good BBQ! They have different kinds of sauce that you can choose from. I love the ranch style display. more

Not what it used to be 5/24/2010

Williamson's used to be one of the better Que joints in the north metro, and they're still pretty good. However since they started opening mulitple locations and selling sauce in grocery stores the value isn't as good as it once was. Smaller portions for the dollar and the quality has slipped a notch. Pros: Real pit BBQ, funky building Cons: Quality has slipped with expansion more

Local Legends of Open Pit 'Cue 2/24/2010

This large, wooden-planked pit house literally rose from the ashes (an early 90's fire nearly closed the doors forever) to become nearly as recognizable of a landmark as its neighbor the ""Big Chicken"". The sweet, tangy sauce that has become the hallmark of the brothers Williamson is featured early and often. Chopped pork plates with rich brunswick stew and creamy mac and cheese is served right along grilled half chickens with corn on the cob. Fried pickles are a great way to get things started while you look around to notice tons of antique license plates, letters of congratulation from plenty of conservative politicos, and other southern accoutrements. The freshest food will be found during the predictably busier times - so avoid the late tuesday lunches and you'll be fine. Pros: Affordable, Great Place to Bring the Whole Family Cons: Off Peak Hours May Cause Quality to Suffer more

Takes so good makes you wanna slap your mama 12/12/2009

We were recommended by many people as a place to not pass up on a trip out to Georgia. Great bbq, welcomed by a cow's head and open bbq. As the doors open, there is a best of citysearch plaque and as you dig in you will soon know why. I got the combo with ribs, pulled pork, pulled beef, grilled chicken, texas toast, and baked beans. Try the bbq sauce on the table, left feeling full but accomplished! Pros: Great Ribs and Pulled Pork Cons: None that I can think of more

Really Good BBQ! 5/10/2009

What is there to say? BEST BBQ IN TOWN!!! Better yet Best BBQ in the STATE!!! I have been a loyal patron for many years and the BBQ has only gotten better! Pros: Always moist and tender! more

Best BBQ in Town!!! 5/7/2009

Best BBQ in Town! I have traveled all over Georgia and I still have not found a BBQ joint that can compete with Williamson Bros BBQ! They really know how to BBQ! Pros: They know their stuff! more

Best BBQ in the State!!! 9/11/2008

I have traveled all over Georgia and everywhere I go I sample the local BBQ there and I must say with out a shadow of a doubt that Williamson Bro's is the best out there!!! I eaten at both locations and have never been disappointed. If you are a die hard fan of BBQ as I am or just want a sampling of Georgia's bests then you got to give Williamson Bro's a try! Pros: Best BBQ in the State!!! more


IF IT AIN'T PIG IT AIN'T BAR-B-QUE.... This is a statement of what is what! The pork is what makes this place great. Smoked and cured with a tasty sauce, stick with the chopped pork! Sliced, chopped, inside, outside or mixed it cannot be beat. Sides of stew, garlic bread, onion rings and baked beans make Williamson Bros one of the BEST in TOWN and THE BEST IN MARIETTA! The deserts are also very good and ample. Great food but don't look too close! There may be some cleanliness issues but they are wise to keep the light low and dark walls........ Pros: Really GOOD BBQ and Deserts...... Great Smells! Cons: Is it clean? more

The best BBQ in Atlanta 9/28/2007

This is our all time favorite BBQ place in Atlanta. We don?t eat at the restaurant much, but we do order a lot of to go food from there. We normally get the pound of pulled pork and a few sides. The pork is always great, and their sauce is amazing. My husband loves their onion rings and baked beans. I enjoy the macaroni and cheese, and chocolate pie. They always offer buns when you order to go, and it makes great leftovers. The ribs are also excellent, and the price is reasonable. Pros: Great BBQ Cons: They close pretty early more

All show no glory.. 9/21/2007

When you approach the restaurant it has all the apperances of a great BBQ joint. A rusti looking building with thick smokey aroma coming out of the chimney. As you walk in you see a large pit with juicy smoked pork butt sizzling in the wood burning pit. Unfortunately, thats where the magic ends. When the food comes out the meat is a little dry. I had the combo plate and I couldn't taste any smoke flavor in the meat. The BBQ sauce was o.k. but nothing to write home about. The chicken wasn't BBQ''d but cooked in an electric rotissere that's found in a grocery store. Overall, it was very disappointing. Their grilled steak was good though. Pros: Steak is a tasty and good value Cons: BBQ more

best sauce ever 7/14/2007

I was raised in Valdosta Ga. and thought we had the best BBQ of all until we went to Williamson Pros: NO PROBLEMS GREAT FOOD Cons: NOT THAT WE FOUND more

Bad BBQ anytime 6/29/2007

Williamson Bros has absolutely the WORST BBQ in the Atlanta area. The pork is terrible, the chicken is terrible. The ribs are passible. Cons: Bad BBQ more

Only Been Once, And That Was Enough! Resting On It's Reputation! 3/13/2007

Yes we are BBQ snobs. And Atlanta is not Memphis, or K.C., but we do have some of the best BBQ Joints in the S.E. I went here a few weeks back while visiting a few elderly relatives, and this was the only place that wanted to go. Yes it was packed, noisy, and was not up to our Que Standards. The chopped BBQ Pork Sandwich was just mush, and I guess if you are of a certain age, it would be easy to swallow. Ribs were dry, but the worst part was the sauce. I've had better out of a bottle. Prices are right, but the Que is not! Pros: Below Average Que & Sauce! Cons: Below Average Que & Sauce! more

Cheap & Yummy BBQ 2/20/2007

I went and had their Monday special -- steak with two sides for only 9.99. Awesome deal. I think they have a different daily special so I'll have to go back on different days to see. The meat was pretty good tasting and very cheap. I had it rare and it was so soft. I took it home and it still tasted great the next day after I nuked it. The onion strings that came with my steak were awesome! And I Ioved the mash potatoes and gravy too. The service was alright - our server was very nice even though we had to ask for the gravy that was supposed to come with the mash potatoes and even after we had to ask for it, it took a long time for it to get to us. Overall, I enjoyed it and it was definately a great value. Will go back for sure even though I only got 2 onion rings -- I kinda expected a little more onion ring than 2! Pros: Price, hours, service Cons: Not the best tasting food ever more

Worst BBQ 2/4/2007

As a Southerner I find Williamson Bros a bit over rated. The meat from Beef to Pork to Bird is way to dry. There are times I like BBQ without sauce. Eating it without the sauce at this joint is like eating toletpaper (not that I would know that 1st hand but) Been doing my own at home for almost 35 yrs. There are better BBQ joints out there but you gotta go and find your own. Pros: I dont have to go there. Cons: Bad BBQ more
