Brisket was moist and tender. If you go on a Wednesday, get an order if the bacon burnt ends! They are to die for.

Wonderful smoke taste, we tried all five meats. The sausage was hands down the best we've ever had and we have tried a lot. The boneless chicken thigh, pulled pork and lean brisket were so good that we wouldn't use the sauce. The turkey was good but it didn't stand up to the flavor of the others so it was moved to leftovers. The side ... read more

Tucked away in a small shopping center, Socks Love is easy to miss until you see the crowd gathered outside its door. Recently selected as Georgia's best bar-b-que, it has all the offerings of traditional BBQ: pulled pork, sliced pork, brisket, ribs, and chicken. I had the pulled pork with the green beans and Mac & cheese. It was spe ... read more

everything they say is true: tender, delicious meats and flavorful southern sides. As a lifelong Fresh Air BBQ fan, I had a pretty high bar to be reached. AND THEY DID. Go there - you will be very glad you did!

The BBQ at this place is not a game! I’ll let you know when I find something that is not delicious but until then you better put it on your list of places to eat in Georgia! My favorites are the Pulled Pork, Mac N’ Cheese and the Cowboy Beans! Now stop reading and go get in line!

Let the smokey aroma fill your soul- then let the tender pork fill your stomach. I feel like it's so hard to find a good barbecue place these days. Either the meat is too dry, too tough, too fatty- or the sauce is basically pure sugar, or the sides are lacking.

Enter Socks Love.
