Fodor's Expert Review Sweet Auburn Barbecue

$$ Virginia-Highland and Emory Barbecue

One of several success stories to come from the Sweet Auburn Curb Market, this offshoot of the market makes classic Southern barbecue available in a part of town where it’s lacking. The meats are slow-smoked, and the sides are delectable. Mix things up with the taco plate or pimento cheese wontons—more examples of this barbecue joint’s multicultural influences.
