DINNERS ON A DIME: Real Southern Bar-B-Que

EMORY, Ga. – This week, Dinners on a Dime features the best in local BBQ. Every Tuesday Where U Live chooses four favorite eats in your area for you to take your family and friends for a fabulous meal for a price that’s economically feasible in today’s economy.

Voted best BBQ in Atlanta by Creative Loafing, Food Network, USA Today, New York Times, Atlanta Magazine, The AJC and Rolling Stones Magazine Daddy D’z is a classic BBQ “joint” that plays live blues and serves your meats just how you like them. And don’t forget to try the Mozzarella Cheese Sticks, they’re served with ranch dressing and are “to die for” according to some. Check them out at 264 Memorial Drive in Atlanta.

According to some, Jim and Nick’s BBQ is typical chain barbecue but according to others, it’s the best in town. The restaurant serves up the best fried catfish and isn’t too shabby when it comes to the fixings. Guests rave about their cornbread cheese muffins, salads and baked potatoes. Although the restaurant is popular for BBQ, they host a weekly Taco Night on Tuesdays. The restaurant is located at 2275 GA Highway 20 in Conyers.

Community BBQ is a favorite among our “Where U Live” staff. The restaurant is located in North Decatur and gives visitors a choice of meat and the choice between a sandwich or a plate with two sides. Sides include classics like slaw, baked beans, and collard greens and of course Brunswick stew. The restaurant is pretty affordable and the flavor is unmatched. Check them out at 1361 Clairmont Road in Decatur.

Old Hickory House opened in 1953 at 1527 Northside Drive in Atlanta. Now, more than fifty years later, Bill and Jack Black’s restaurant is a staple in southern BBQ. When Jimmy Carter moved to Washington D.C. he called the restaurant to have their famous BBQ and Brunswick stew shipped to the White House. The restaurant is located at 5490 Chamblee-Dunwoody Road in Dunwoody.

Be sure to log on next Tuesday, we’ll share our picks for “Best Cupcakes”.
