Old South BBQ - Smyrna, GA

Guest Review By Erik Pena
Atlanta has its share of good places to eat. Parts of it remain true to its Deep South roots. BBQ is no exception.

I met some friends from Marietta at the Old South BBQ in Smyrna, GA. Things started a little dodgy when they told me there was no sweet tea. This is not good. It turns out there was a little bit left in a pitcher but it was promised to another customer. They left so I got it.

I decided to get the BBQ house salad. It is super finely chopped pork on a pretty ordinary salad. I got it with the sweet and hot sauce. My friend got brisket with the hot sauce. "Sauce" is a bit of a misnomer since it was more like paste -- it was thick.

The salad was good, not great. But I got it with some garlic toast that was excellent. So that made up for it. This made for a very full meal so I skipped the sides and the dessert. Mistake? Maybe, but I'll never know. There are just too many other places on my list in the extended Atlanta metro area.

I think the ramp out front is so you can be wheeled out on a dolly when you are done.
Last time I forgot the photo of the food. This time I made it halfway. I need a better camera phone.
