Sides, apps, drinks--whatever. What I want to know is how their beef and pork compares with Fox Brothers, which is not all that far. Obviously if one finds himself in Castleberry Hill or downtown with no motivation to venture far, this place sounds like a solid choice. But my question is whether it destination-worthy barbecue like Fox Bros.? Can anyone answer?
The place certainly smelled great from outside the couple of times I passed by, but I haven't had a chance to stop in yet.
Great food, yummy drinks and perfect atmosphere who could ask for anything more! Oh and the staff and owners are great people who make you feel like you're right at home. Go visit if you haven't you won't be disappointed.
WOW, Cliff writes an article promoting a $9 crappy steak at a gay bar and has the nerve to criticize Outback and Longhorn?
Cliff you make no sense.
Oh, this is sad.
Great, great food. I have been there 3 times. The smoked chicken wings rock. The ribs and pork are great. For sides, I have only had the mac and cheese, the thrice creamed corn and the bacon and blue cheese potato salad. The first 2 are awesome, the 3rd one isn't bad but doesn't match up to the first 2. Great addition to Atlanta BBQ!
NYE Party at Smoke Ring with Sweet Auburn String Band. Come hang!
Old ass thread, but I'll bite. I've eaten at many of Atlanta's most esteemed restaurants and I also put out a lot of good food in my own kitchen, so I know good from bad. Over the years Longhorn's has been a reliably good source for comfort food and gigantic portions whenever I find my way into one, almost always with my folks when I visit them in small town NW Georgia, to whom it is considered fine dining.
If you stick to the more popular entrees (steak, salmon, chicken dish, etc..) it's usually as good as similar items at quite a few respected Atlanta independents, though not necessarily much cheaper. It's not inventive or exciting cuisine, or described with rarefied flourish on a menu printed 2 hours ago, but it's usually highly satisfying for what it is. I typically enjoy reading your reviews Cliff, but this one definitely confirms your inveterate snobbery.
I could seriously live on their deviled eggs fried green tomatoes.
Always great to see new concepts in Atlanta, especially the pay-an-arm-and-a-leg-for-finger-food-and-overrated-cocktails variety.
My wife & I go to the Sparks, NV Outback every Sunday before we got to gamble penny slots at Western Village.
We have been going like this for 10 yrs., We're on a first name basis with most of the staff and the proprietor. Everything we get is prepared to perfection or they'll change it. Mostly Filet, Rib-eye, Prime Rib with "Aussie Chips".
Great Vibe, Great food. We have been to some Outbacks out-of-town and haven't found some of them as good.
Even though it's a franchise, there can be quite a variation in food prep - staff - depending on the proprietor of the particular franchise..
tipsforjesus is one of the paypal founders, right?
i think the jesus part is supposed to be facetious.
KILL IT!! Love you guys!
Sad to hear about Ben's Brown Bag. Hate to say it but it seems like that space is cursed. So many places have given it a go there and haven't made it.
Thanks. I guess there are some caul fat haters on this board. I like the Buford Highway Farmers Market - I will give a shot. The Gorgeous One just can't eat too much - I have to keep it twisted steel and sex appeal.
not only is this a well written article, it makes me want to go out and buy pork, something I have never ever in my life cooked.
Breakfast with Santa, something great for the kids.
"[It is] very inexpensive; we sell it at the shop. You can get it at Buford Highway Farmers Market, you can get it at the Sweet Auburn Market."
Where can you buy caul fat?
This looks amazing. However, I see a bell pepper on the counter, and bell pepper is mentioned in the article. But it's not on the receipt, nor in the recipe. WHAT IS GOING ON HERE I DEMAND ANSWERS.
Love pork belly.
