I'll spare you the story about how we used to live in the area, had been meaning to get to Socks for the longest time but never did until after we moved away, but whatever. The bottom line is that this BBQ is the real deal! We picked up some to-go food about 20 minutes before they closed for lunch and while some items were  already s ... read more

Great!

Exceptionally good barbeque. Got a large platter with all 5 meats. They were out of turkey, so they substituted pulled pork. Every item was delicious and prepared with care. Great sides as well - mac and cheese, cowboy beans, fried corn, and the side of the day, squash casserole. So good. Takeout only at this time.

I've never been a huge fan of BBQ, but it's my boyfriends favorite food. When he moved up to Cumming, we tried the Catering Kitchen because it had great reviews all around. It was spectacular! When I heard about the name change from Catering Kitchen, I was worried  the food changed too. Thankfully, it is the same delicious BBQ and ho ... read more

A couple weeks back, a cohort at work suggested we make the drive and try this place out. While my initial thought was "it's BBQ, so they can't be bad." Much to my taste buds' pleasure, it was not only "not bad," but actually very good! As a matter of fact, if texas is the BBQ mecca then this place is pure Heaven.

Top notch.

My usual lunch cohort and I tried to visit this place a week prior, but the restaurant was closed for what I assume was the July 4th holiday. Under no circumstance were we upset, but rather disappointed, and not at the restaurant in any way, shape, or form. If you read the owner's mantra, you'll quickly understand t

Enjoyed each item I’ve tried (mac n’ cheese is awesome!) love the brisket and turkey too, but the highlight for me is the “frito pie” made with their brisket chili. And the staff is so kind and helpful. Also love that they support their community in different ways. Definitely call if you’re going later in the day as they can run out ... read more

I just tried Socks BBQ for the first time today and had the brisket plate with mac n cheese and brisket chili for sides. Everything was delicious. The brisket was tender and fell apart on the fork. The sides were both really good, too. The service was friendly and faster than I'd expected. I will definitely be coming back.

The best BBQ EVER! I've been to acclaimed BBQ joints all over the country, but this is for sure the best I've ever tried! The brisket is mouth watering and SO tender. Be sure to get the mac n cheese, it is to die for! My only complaint is that I wish they were open more hours so that we could eat there more often!

A couple of weeks ago, the girls and I ventured over to a lil’ BBQ spot that is packed with loads of love, honesty and flavor in Cumming, GA. 😊😊😊 Since I had been raving about it, the girls insisted that our one weekly take-out treat come from Socks’ Love Barbecue!

This review is overdue. Socks Love BBQ is the real deal. No strangers to BBQ, the fam has enjoyed the ribs, brisket and pulled pork. The sides are all off the hook good, but I have to admit I was borderline devastated when they ran out of the brisket chili. I went out on a limb and got a side of collard greens, which is clearly not a ... read more

I never knew Socks existed until a neighbor posted on nextdoor.  Just completed a large birthday party where I served beef brisket, pulled pork, and ribs.  Sadly, there was nothing left after the party :).  One person commented about a competitor - so I'll have to try that bbq place.  All in all, excellent food.

The best barbecue in the area.
The best barbecue in the area.  Seasoning is awesome and the macaroni and greens are excellent sides.  Chicken and turkey are my favorites... ribs are very good as well and of course the brisket is an excellent choice.  Don't let the location fool you!

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

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.
