One of the best places around Atlanta for BBQ. Awesome sauces, brisket, sides and service. Will be going here for lunch whenever I am in the area.

Stopped by late on a Saturday because I was craving bbq and wasn't anywhere close to home. The brisket at this place is AMAZING. I live over an hour away and I'll be returning to sample the rest of the menu - yes it's that good!

Best brisket and Mac around! Brisket was fork tender and just melted in your mouth. Bbq sauce was a vinegar base and tasty. Mac was creamy and using big ziti noodles a gooey goodness.

Excellent bbq. The pulled pork was smoked to perfection with a nice bark. Good rub seasoning. The cowboy beans were fabulous. As a lover of authentic smoked bbq I heartily recommend Socks as a legit smokehouse with an obviously good pit master.

I just finished eating and that was the best meal I have had in a very long time. The food was fresh, flavorful and plenty of it served up with a smile by the most pleasant young man. I had the sausage, beef brisket, Mac n cheese, collard greens and brisket chili.

My fiance got the brisket and I got a chicken sandwich. It was good. She also got the mac-n-cheese. It needs more cheese, but was good.

The best brisket in Cumming area and maybe all of Georgia! I'm a BBQ snob and they know how to select the perfect fat to meat ratio with their beef!

My brisket was a little dry and not as flavorful as everything else + I prefer saucier mac and cheese, but the rest made up for it! Beef sausage, beans, collards, and pickles were soo good. And if they sold the pork that's in the collards as an entree, I'd be all over that. Melts in your mouth!

Best bbq in atlanta in my opinion! It goes up there with southern soul in st simons or archabalds in Tuscaloosa. The meat is very flavorful and just enough smokiness by itself, as any good bbq should be, and the sauce is good too. Great food and glad they extended their hours later in the day again. So glad this place is near me!
