Needed a quick lunch....The restaurant was previously a house w/ a porch- Cute and nice to re- purpose instead of tearing down. Take out order was the answer - Nice large menu on the counter & easy to read ( a plus ), friendly staff, didn't take long for the order, and tax is included so they don't have to... More

This is a very pleasant and friendly place. The service is fast and the servings are generous. Excellent ribs, very good brisket, good chicken. Good french fries.

We love take out from Hometown. The food is always so fresh and pork is so tender. The sides remind me of what my mother used to prepare. We prefer the take out rather than the dining area.

Hometown BBQ offers lunch and dinner service with just one same-price menu, and does not offer specials. Cash only at the counter. Decent decor with plastic-ware for your convenience. Party of three had two 4 oz. pork plates and one 4-rib plate for $30 not including drinks or desert. It was mid afternoon and they we out of the banana... More

We eat here regularly and have even used the to cater a gathering. The ribs are always good and the pulled pork is delicious. The baked beans are some of the best I've ever eaten.

For those of you who have been following our blog for some time know, Melanie and I love barbecue. In fact, I had a place in Cashiers, North Carolina that I used to love for barbecue. I would drive up there for a day trip to get out of the sweltering Atlanta heat since its 10-15 degrees cooler in the... More

Dropped in on Hometown BBQ today, and haven't been in a while. Honestly, the food is okay, not bad, not great, just average. And I think it is priced a bit high. A BBQ plate w/two sides and a drink and tax is $11.50. Add $1.50 + tax if you want one of your sides to be stew. Just too... More

We eat at Hometown VERY frequently. We have found the best value is to buy a pound of BBQ hot, buns and sides. A pound isn't much more than two sandwiches and then we have enough for at least another meal. Their potato salad is outstanding. Their hours are variable, so don't plan to get there just before closing as... More

As others have related, the actual BBQ (pork) had good flavor, not too dry or too wet. Sides were adequate, with more mayonnaise in the cole slaw than preferred, potato salad with more mayo and dill than preferred, etc. N.B.: Cash only, with an ATM inside the restaurant (& with a $2 surcharge to get cash out).
