Pit Boss BBQ
The full-bodied flavors of juicy brisket, crispy smoked wings, and Atlanta lemon pepper sauce secure Pit Boss BBQ’s status as one of the best barbecue spots in Atlanta. Don’t let the simple decor fool you—the warm and friendly atmosphere is known to thrill all carnivores, with visitors flocking to the restaurant from all over the country like moths to a flame. Husband and wife duo Wade and Tracy McSwain draw on Southern BBQ tradition while keeping it fresh with their own secret ingredients. Time is their greatest hidden power, as the couple masterfully combines overnight seasoning with letting thangs marinate to produce standout dishes. The tender brisket alone justifies a visit, but when accompanied by the half slab ribs, collard greens, mac & cheese, cornbread, and a massive peach cobbler, you’ll quickly see why this spot has received such well-deserved clout as a food destination.
