Had lunch with friends on a mid-afternoon on Saturday. Restaurant was nearly empty which I thought was odd. BBQ sandwiches were ordered by everyone, including my granddaughter, I ordered the half BBQ chicken breast lunch plate, salad and potato. The sandwiches were made from a...More

Begun in the 1920s, Sprayberry's Barbecue still operates in its original location on Jackson St. They have a second location near I-85 and the food is good at both places. If barbecue is not your favorite, try their chicken fingers or a meat-and-two special at...More

Thank you for your kind words! We couldn't have said it better ourselves. Just to add on, Aristocratic Hamburgers are the largest selling non-barbecue item on our menu. Give that a try too! Please come back soon.

This is a local Icon, been around Newnan forever, they offer a lot of your typical bbq joint fare. There sauce is a vinegar base so if you don't really like that flavor this might not be the place for you. Not a bad place...More

We have been serving our barbecue and Brunswick stew since 1926. However, we don't like to think that we are typical. We cook fresh hams, bottom round beef, baby back ribs and chicken on our pits every day the same way my grandfather did. Our...More

Our Barbecue Aristocrat is a favorite. Yes, we are a hometown spot. Our original location (On Highway 29, Jackson Street just north of downtown Newnan) has been there for 91 years. Our second location (Exit 47 off I-85) has been there for 22 years-we still...More

Being from Texas we wanted to try Georgia BBQ. If this is it, No thanks. Very pricy too. And the Brunswick stew was much better at other restaurants in Georgia as well.More

We certainly understand that you love Texas barbecue more than Georgia barbecue. We all love what we grow up with and Texas and Georgia have VERY different styles from types of meat cooked to sauces. And everyone's Brunswick stew is different. Ours has been the...More

Although Sprayberry's is a historic restaurant loved by natives, I find it to be over priced and mediocre. The Brunswick stew is not good. The fried onion rings are delicious but greasy. The chopped BBQ is adequate but uninspiring. Tossed salad with chicken pieces on...More

We are very thankful for our loyal, "native" customers. We also appreciate our loyal, traveling customers that don't go anywhere near Newnan without stopping in for barbecue. We know that barbecue is a personal taste but we still hate to hear words like "uninspiring" and...More
