Chilebrown at home

Tuesday, June 11, 2024


 Atlanta Georgia has been my home for this weekend. It was mandatory to try some local bbq. Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q has numerous locations and I visited the original location on DeKalb Av. This was a tree shaded fun looking place with indoor and outdoor seatimg. There was lots of mandatory bbq kistsh adorning the inside walls.

There were four housemade sauces to choose from. They all were decent but the white sauce really had me giggling with glee. It was the perfect sauce to annoint my deep fried pork ribs. The sauce was mayonnaise foward with just the right ammount of cayenne. I was in deep fried rib heaven. These ribs and sauce would be my last meal request if I was on death row for commiting the crime of guilty pleasures.

The rest of the meal was a very good offering of bbq. The sides and cornbread was unremarkable along with decent ribs and brisket. I may have been still relishing my deep fried experience to not appreciate them more.

I still had room for chocolate/caramel cheesecake. It was the perfect way to end my visit at an Atlanta bbq destination.

Glad you had a tasty trip! We reluctantly skipped the deep-fried ribs but will hit that next time we're there.

Catching up w/ my reading now that I'm back from Pittsburgh (Maxwell's Allegheny Tavern for classic German fare, Primanti Bros. for the mandatory PIT sandwich experience, and an unfortunate amount of conference fare), Eater included Bobby Mac's BBQ in Crockett in a new in the East Bay list. Yelp informed me it was temporarily closed and the website said that the pitmaster had suddenly died! It was less than a week old article- shame on you Eater!
