This is our go-to "where do you want to eat" answer. Every person that visits us in Port Washington is brought to Atlas' for a meal. The meat is always spectacular, the staff is friendly, and the service is great.

If you like the aroma of smoke flavored barbecue, then you found a place you will love. Many meat choices complemented with 4 types of BBQ sauce. I like trying all 4. I personally love the burnt ends. Tastes as good as it sounds.

Hi Vincent M. Thank you for your positive written review. I enjoyed reading your commentary and will share your positive thoughts with the team.

While we don't get into this area too often, I knew that the next time I was that I would be stopping here. It's not far off the expressway so very convenient to travelers. Looks to be a newer building and the inside was very nice as well. As you may expect for a BBQ place, plenty of beer choices... More

We have eaten here a few times either taking carry out or dining in. They more than took care of us (9) in our group, of which 3 were children. We were greeted and promptly seated. Our waitress took our drink orders and took our food orders. The food was well presented and hot. Our waitress went out of her... More

Nice dinning room with enough TVs to keep tracked of games but not be overwhelming. Nice drink menu with local brews . Food was excellent. Barbecue nachos nice start. Pulled pork good with great selection of sauces. Very good sides, especially the Brussels sprouts. Grilled salmon very nice. Easy access off of I43. Will be back.

First visit, undecided after looking at menu (so many great choices). at the suggestion of the waitress, we decided on the platter of assorted smoked barbecue meats (2 pounds of ribs, brisket, chicken, pulled pork and sausage) GREAT CHOICE!! They offer a selection of sauces, at the table, that range from mild to wild. Add a side of corn bread,... More

A group of ten went for dinner last night. Accomodations were great - very comfortable. Food was excellent (I tried fried pickles for the first time!), beef brisket was very tender and moist, brussel sprouts - not sure what was in them but I highly recommend them. I also experimented with the BBQ sauces - all were good - one... More
