There are a lot of barbecue spots in Atlanta, but if it’s your first time here, Fox Bros. is where you need to go. As a forewarning, there’s always a line at this Candler Park spot, but just get there right when they open at 11am and make an afternoon out of it. They serve all of the barbecue greatest hits, along with some less traditional appetizers like chicken fried ribs and smoked wings. Make sure to get a few sides to round things out, like the mac and cheese, collards, and brunswick stew, and if you miraculously still have room after all of that, the chocolate pecan pie is a great choice.
