The metro Atlanta area is serious about its barbecue, with restaurants often included in national rankings.
The AJC’s annual Best of Atlanta poll for barbecue is one readers participate in most, second only to our pizza poll.
So Yelp’s choice for the best barbecue in Georgia came as bit of a surprise. We’ve never written about it. Many of us had never heard of it.
“One of the most important things you can do for or with someone is share a meal with them or provide a meal for someone,” Steve Hartsock, owner and chef, told FCN. “... I want people to come here and feel like they’re a part of what we’re doing, a part of our family.”
Socks’ Love bills itself as “wood-fired honest barbecue + creative comfort sides.”
Those sides, including “OMG” mac & cheese, fire roasted cream corn, and garlic green beans, also get rave reviews on Yelp.
Sometimes the sides get a better review than the meat.
For every two- or three-star review, however, there are a dozen five-star posts on Yelp.
