Georgia is all about pork. I like to switch it up and eat Brisket. This is the Brisket Mecca of the area. Nice burnt ends. Great bark and deep pink ring. Tender to the bite. Amazing flavor. Support local. Love this place. OBTW The sides are fantastic. Cream corn. WOWsa!!

Perfect BBQ that's hard to find! You would think in the South there would be more great BBQ places...but very hard to find! Some are just OK or maybe good, but not GREAT! Moonie's is the greatest BBQ restaurant around! The brisket is out of this world!

My brother who lives in Georgia has never eaten barbecue in Texas. Since I have lived in Texas and enjoy good Texas barbecue, he asked me to judge whether or not Moonie's is authentic Texas BBQ.

This is an out of the way place with great food. I really love the creamed corn and the barbecue. Ordering is easy but space can be limited at times.

Moonie's has the closest thing to real Texas BBQ since I left Austin in "98"! Great atmosphere and staff! They also serve Shiner Bock which is a must! We've been here several times and it's always great!

Best brisket ever! Melts in your mouth bursting with flavor. Baked beans above average. Worth the 45 minute drive.

I am a Carolinian and never believed in my life I would find Texas BBQ in the little town of Flowery Branch, GA that would top anything I have had in the past. Superb food, VERY comfortable place for gathering with friends or family, or just great for two. Do Not Drive past without stopping!

Awesome Texas style Barbeque. You need to try their version of Mac and cheese. A little pricey but food is good
