If ya been there, try it again. They have updated the location and the BBQ is still great.... getting bigger and still keeping the personal touch !!!! I have enjoyed BBQ all my life and am very glad that Frank and Debbie opened this restaurant. This is great BBQ and is highlighted by their wonderful choices of a variety of sauces. You will not regret making the trip to Hochston to try this place and will make return visits. The converted house gives it the right atmosphere to enjoy eating BBQ right from the grill.... Thanks Frank,

What can I say about you, T_O_B_D ? You were the one that got us started with the THS crowd. Thank you for being one of our best "cheerleaders." Debbie and I are glad that we opened our small restaurant, also, but are also glad that we're moving to a larger place. The smoker will still be right beside the building, and the meat will come right out of the smoker to the kitchen to be pulled...Thanks T_O_B_D....We love you....Debbie and Frank
I picked up a plate to go on Friday and I have to agree with most other reviews, the bbq pork was delicious. I also loved the hot sauce, however I would have liked a little more to go with the enormous portion of pork on the plate, and the potato salad was also delicious. I will definitely be a repeat customer.

I had heard from others that Frank's BBQ was great so we went and checked it out. It was beyond great, it was superb. The pulled pork was the best I have ever had--simply superb!! The brunswick stew was so good we had to bring home a half gallon of the stuff to go with the 2 pounds of pulled pork we also brought home to eat over the weekend. All of the sauces were excellent but we really liked the Carolina Yellow and the Vinegar sauces--brought home a bottle of each. I'm sure we will be stopping in whenever we travel up I-85 north of Atlanta. Many thanks to Debra and Frank for the superb food and hospitality.

Thanks, Bill....I appreciate your honesty. You COULD have said something about a peach cobbler....LOL I can't wait for you to make the trek from Jackson to Hoschton again! Love ya! Debbie and Frank
Traveling thru a small town in northeast Georgia the other day I stopped in for lunch at this BBQ place that is run out of a converted old house. Nice atmosphere and the BBQ was very tasty.. I ordered a pulled pork sandwich and they really filled the bun up with with delicious BBQ covered with a delightful sauce. And it is reasonably priced for a lunch menu. Make a trip to Hoschton, Ga and say hi to Frank and Debbie sometime soon.....

Thanks for stopping by BBQatic! We ALWAYS make sure there is at least enough meat to cover the bun...Reminds me of a guy that was in a few weeks ago. Yelled across our expansive dining room (those of you that have been there KNOW that's a lie...LOL), Frank, next time could you put more meat on my sandwich? I told him that he would remember us for putting too much meat long before he'd remember us for putting too little meat....I'm not sure who you are BBQatic, but thanks for posting!! Frank
The bbq was mouth watering and moist, with homemade sauces of different kinds. The brunswick stew was to die for. Best I have had since my Grandmothers. And that fried corn, oh man. You gotta check this little hole in the wall out.

Thank you...I appreciate your business, and can't wiat to see you in this little hole in the wall!! Frank
I have been to Frank's on several occasions. If I am anywhere near Hwy 53, I take it to Frank's for BBQ. He has the best Brunswick stew I have tasted in recent years! My Aunt made the best I ever had, and Frank's runs a VERY close second! His BBQ is moist and tasty. His sauces are excellent, although I haven't been brave enough to try the hottest one yet. I look forward to heading up I-85 or I-985 do I can detour to Frank's for lunch! Over the years, I have lost my taste for peach cobbler due to some bad experiences, but Frank's is getting my taste buds re-activated! His location isn't always the easiest to find, but call ahead and he will give you great directions from where ever you are!

Thanks, gum_ball....you need to get to Hwy 53 more often. I've missed seeing you and your lovely wife. The hottest sauce won't hurt you, its a "good" hot....sneaks up on you. The peach cobbler is my M-I-L's recipe, and we're proud of it. Thanks again.
Thanks Twink...the atmosphere is going to be changing, but the home cooking will still be there...along with breakfast! I can't wait to get moved.....Frank
The best I have ever had. Frank catered my daughter's wedding. Everyone said the food was great and the staff was wonderful. Frank's place is small and friendly. A place of warmth and happiness. A place to take your family to. Frank and Debbie are down to earth.

Hello Angel....we really enjoyed catering her wedding. Bringing the smoker filled with meat and pulling it right there was unique, and very great! We're about to move to a new place that will be a little bigger, but still not huge. Instead of seating 16, we'll seat between 40 and 45. We still want a place of warmth and happiness, and it will ALWAYS be a family atmosphere. Thanks again, Angel, and tell Jim hello! Debbie and Frank
Frank has abwolutely, positively the best BBQ and stew I've ever eaten. Eat in the small restaurant, take out, catering...however you want to do it, but you've got to try Frank's. Everything I've tried has been excellent -- BBQ pork, Brunswick stew, ribs, sides. A co-worker went on my recommendation and said it was great & he doesn't even like BBQ!

Thanks D for getting us signed up with Kudzu. Because of you, we're getting all of these great reviews. We've missed you lately at the restaurant, but I know that you'll be back. I expect you to be at the grand opening of the NEW Frank's BBQ....Hopefully in May, but no later than June. Thanks for being such a great "cheerleader" for Frank's BBQ!! Debbie and Frank
