D.B.A. Barbecue – Atlanta, GA


D.B.A. Barbecue – Atlanta, GA

The rain kept us close to home this weekend, so we rode just a few blocks up to Virginia Highlands and gave D.B.A. Barbecue a try.

Our first impression was that this is a really nice place. It has more of an upscale sports bar atmosphere than your typical barbecue joint. In addition to the full bar, there were several large screens playing various college football games.

I decided to skip the sweet tea and have a Sweetwater 420 local brew. I did try Jennifer’s tea, and while it was good, we both found it just a little weak. Jennifer broke with tradition and tried a chicken sandwich, which she really enjoyed. I had the chopped pork, as usual, and it was extremely good, among the best I’ve tried. The Brunswick stew was more like vegetable soup, but the best vegetable soup I’ve ever had, so we will forgive them for calling it Brunswick. Large steak-cut fries accompanied Jennifer’s sandwich and were quite tasty. The hit was the three-cheese macaroni. Don’t pass that up when you go.

D.B.A. is much more than a barbecue restaurant, and it may be one of the places we go for more than just barbecue, as we both really enjoyed the entire experience. File this one under “highly recommended”.

  1. If you ever pass through Alpharetta, you guys have to try a place called SmokeJack on Main Street across from city hall. If you haven't tried it yet, it is by far the best place I have found. They have a very diverse menu and it is just amazing! I will have to try DBA next time I am down that way, I have been reading a lot about it.
