Found this place online and grateful I did. The best BBQ ribs I’ve ever had and it was takeout for lunch! Perfect amount of smokiness, generous portions, excellent sauce! I’m looking forward to dining in next time. Can’t imagine the quality any better! More...

Great place for tasty BBQ. Do yourself a favor and try this place. I've had nothing but great experiences here and will keep coming back. Atmosphere is like a restaurant in Fort Worth I loved. More...

This place is so fantastic. The sides and veggies, seasoning - super outstanding and gourmet. But the bbq itself is also as good as you can get. Perfect. Just awesome and always good. More...

Sweet Auburn is a great local BBQ joint. They have a rotating selection of local brews, great cocktail specials, and all the hipster aesthetics you could desire in the Poncey Highlands dominion. The staff is all super nice. It's a busy restaurant - and neighborhood haunt- but I usually don't have any trouble getting a table. For some killer drinks, creative wardrobe, and a lot of laughs, stop by when Brent is at the bar. More...

I've never had a bad thing here. The food is always amazing, even when the owner is experimenting. The service is always wonderful as well. Especially Barbara. I have been at her table a few times now and it is always a fun experience. She is so sweet and funny, she makes you feel like she's interested in you personally. She knows her stuff about the menu too and will help with suggestions happily. More...

Definitely one of the stand out restaurants in the Poncey-Highlands neighborhood. Great if you want authentic barbecue or if you’d prefer a twist on the norm. They have solid daily specials (Bourbon Thursdays is a stand out). The bartender, Brent, was our server as well and he made excellent recommendations for cocktails that would pair well with our food. Highly recommend. More...

Stopped in on a whim and left with full bellies. I would have left 5 stars had the wait staff been a bit better. I ordered fatty brisket and was served the lean cut. Our server didn't come back well until we were almost finished and so I chose to eat rather than wait while the rest of my family ate. The food was flavorful and the pricing was reasonable. More...

Went on a Sunday afternoon and was seated immediately. Fast service, great barbecue sandwich, cheesy mac n cheese but the collard greens seemed to be diced which is not the norm for typical "southern" style collards. They were labeled "Jerk Spiced" so that may explain it. Overall excellent meal for $15. I'll definitely be back.

Went to Sweet Auburn during the Atlanta Film Festival. The food was AMAZING! Brisket is really melt-in-your mouth and the mac and cheese is perfect. The craft beer selection had good variety and local choices. However, the best part of SA is the service. Molly was our server and she was absolutely great. She made our experience and really deserves a raise! Thanks Molly. More...

The coconut lemongrass wings were amazing. The flavor profile was spot on. Not your typical wing flavor, but definitely worth the try. The service was fantastic. Everyone was very pleasant, polite, and professional. I will definitely be back. More...

Great service, awesome tasting food. 4 stars because 1 of my 2 sides was wrong and the cost to plate ratio was higher than expected. Would try again just for the bbq which was fantastic. More...

Memphis sandwich was worth all the money. The Sweetwater beans were just flavorful enough to make you want to eat 2 more helpings.

I tried the brisket plate and I was pleasantly surprised. Most places around here have their brisket "pulled apart" but theirs is chopped, Texas style, which is what I prefer. 3 different sauces, one sweet, one spicy, & the last very vinegar based (Carolina style). Jerk collard greens were good, along with mac & cheese w/ Texas toast. More...

I like the Texas style BBQ. It's a nice change from the Georgia BBQ that is typical around here.

The string beans will have you begging for more. If my mother would've cooked string beans in bacon fat I would've ate my vegetables every time.,the food is great and the sweet tea is perfect. The brisket was tasty, but the pulled pork is better. The staff is awesome and the bartenders are cool. Check them out if your in the area. You can park behind Urban outfitters for free!!! More...

Sweet Auburn Barbecue catered our son and daughter-in-law's wedding rehearsal dinner this past Friday evening at Rogers Bridge Park. The food was amazing and the staff was super friendly and easy to work with. They wanted nothing more than to help make this special occasion a success. I had made a special dessert request of banana pudding in mason jars and it was AWESOME. The service was fast and everyone really enjoyed it. Sweet Auburn Barbecue will be my first call the next time I have an event. Thanks Anita and Howard and staff. More...
