This Saturday, I headed over to Edgewood and had Rolling Bones BBQ. I would normally go over to Fox Bros or Daddy D'z, but my neighbor claimed that Rolling Bones had the best brisket in the city. He was correct! I ordered the beef brisket sandwich, cole slaw, and fries. The brisket was really well cooked (no sauce necessary) and piled high on a fat slice of toast. There was enough beef for 2 sandwiches really. The slaw was good, but it had raisins in it... and I'm not a fan of raisins in food. The food was sliced and chopped in front, unlike either Daddy D'z and Fox Bros. Service was fast and friendly. The dining area was small but clean, and there seemed to be plenty of parking.

This place had yummy brisket and the hot bbq sause is just spicy/tangy enough. The tables were pretty clean and the staff was fast. The potato salad and fries were really good. A nice new substitute for the established bbq locations in atlanta.

This is really good stuff! I've moved to Atlanta in the last year and have fallen in love with southern BBQ. This is the best place I've been too. I wish it was closer to my house so I could pick some up all the time!

I've read in various places how this BBQ is supposed to be great, especially their brisket. Well it ain't! We had brisket sandwichs, asked for them lean and got a bunch of poor tasting fat meat on a greasy piece of texas toast. Fries, cole slaw and potato salad wern't much better. Sauce was watery. They don't serve baby back ribs, and according to my son their wings were also lousy. Their location is also not in the best area of town. For brisket, One Star Ranch on Irby street or The Hollow at the Swallow are both much better. In fact I've had better brisket at Whole Foods market at their Buckhead location. My suggestion is stay away to avoid disappointment.

Saw a posting stating otherwise, but I REFUSE to eat unless the score is at least a 90. It's 100 right now..which only makes the food even BETTER. We drive a considerable way 2 times a month to eat here. Divine ribs!

I was disapointed; the food was OK but not deeelicious. The prices are high and the sauce is too sweet. The place was pretty dirty when I went too but maybe we had just missed the rush.
