Fox Bros BBQ is a MUST Visit in Atlanta, Georgia

During my 2018 and 2019 road trips, my wife Marcela was at my side when we stopped at Fox Bros BBQ. I’ve taken a road trip out of state almost every year for the last 10 years or so. In about 8 of those trips, I’ve stopped in Atlanta, Georgia.

The majority of the pictures that you will see below were from one of the treks through Georgia using this trusty Atlanta Food Guide.

Specials Menu

There was a collab taco with Taqueria Del Sol where 100% percent of the taco sales go to a local charity for families with children who are battling brain cancer. The Taco for the Cause featured smoked pulled pork, spicy, creamy slaw with a pepita pesto on a flour tortilla.

By the way, I did lift the entire description from the menu, but in my defense, I never tried it. Marcela is the taco-holic in this household, and she loved them.

Pimento Cheese, Where?

All I need to see are the words Pimento Cheese, and I lose my mind. I almost committed seppuku when I saw it paired with a jalapeño cheddar sausage. I was in love and am currently still going steady with this platter.

Give me a moment….Alright, I’m back!

Brisket Chili

Oh man, that brisket chili was right up my alley. Marcela was busy with her taco while I trying to enjoy as much chili as I could before she was done.

She likes chili, but nowhere near as much as I do. My Mom makes a mean chili, but I give the Fox Bros Brisket Chili the win this time; sorry, Mom.

Beef Short Rib from Fox Bros. BBQ in Atlanta, Georgia

That gargantuan beef short rib is most definitely eye candy and meat candy, too, while we’re at it. Please take a good long look at that char on it, and if it doesn’t make you drool, then I don’t know what exactly will.

Fox Bros. BBQ Burger?

Fox Bros. “Burger”

There is no burger on the Fox Bros BBQ menu, but there is the Fox Bros Burger. Listen to this description, well actually, read it:

Chopped brisket topped with bacon, tomato, red onion, pickles, melted pimento cheese and jalapeño mayo on a buttered, brioche bun

It’s a tough call if you have to choose between the beef short rib and the Fox Bros Burger. I do have a solution for you. Don’t choose, bring someone to share with. You really do need to eat both of these.

We were somehow able to squeeze in a few bites of the mixed berry galette. It was phenomenal.
