At owner David Robert's (of Marietta's Sam & Dave's) Community Q table runners pinch your kids' cheeks, seem genuinely concerned whether you're enjoying your meal, and just "get" what it means to make someone feel at home in an establishment. And the food definitely doesn't hurt the impact. Pleasantly imperfect hand-cut french fries with slivers of skin left on are fried to a golden brown before being showered with a savory, sweet and smoky seasoning.The meat is tender and moist with that ethereal ring of pink and a nice coating of blackened bark. Brisket is so fork-tender it only takes a mere tug of the teeth to cut it. And to finish off the meal, there's always some sort of homespun dessert like chocolate-dipped Rice Krispies Treats displayed on a cake stand just like your mom would. It's a sweet reminder of how Community Q -- a fitting name -- wants you to feel right at home.
