Georgia Rib Company

Occupying a large building and hosting frequent poker nights and live entertainment, this is really more of a community lodestone than a magnet for barbecue classicists. The baby backs are serviceable; avoid the strangely shriveled-looking beef rib. “Get a double order of mac and cheese,” our server advised. I opted for a single serving, and when it arrived, I was startled to recognize the pudgy rigatoni noodles. “Hey,” I said, “isn’t this the famous recipe developed at Sam’s BBQ-1 right around the corner from y’all?” She just smirked and shrugged.
