Georgia's Eastside BBQ
Posted by FatHP on 08/23/2009
I have been to Georgias numerous times over the last few years and always have a great experience. I will agree that the pulled pork is not my favorite menu item although nothing as bad as the previous reviewer stated. However, the ribs,fried chicken and catfish are some of the best Ive had. The special sides are always on point and the banana pudding is to die for. The staff like family with us now and always have a cold sweet t for me the moment I sit.

I can only rate the food quality and the value as I got my food to go .... on a flight to NY a few weeks back I was given a recommendation to eat here by the guy next to me. Yesterday I was in the neighborhood and got a pulled pork sandwich to go after reading the other reviews below. As far as value it gets a 2.5 as it was 7.50 total though i would have appreciated the sandwich to be served with fries (as they have them on the menu) rather than "lays" potato chips which btw weren't even fresh. As to the pork itself, it was pulled and moist albeit flavorless and small. The slaw and the bbq sauce couldn't even help it. I can't talk about the rest of the food - sorry for the bad review but you guys can try harder. I only have a few meals in NY and each one I hope to be great. I found myself regretting eating it for most of the evening.

To the previous reviewer, RIBS HAVE BONES. Thats why they are called RIBS. Maybe put your hand on your stomach and feel them. I have ordered many times and am always pretty happy the fries are crispy , dessert is great and staff are nice.

I just placed an order for the rib sandwich, and I wasn't really expecting to get a stack of ribs (bone and all) stuck between two pieces of toast. Plus, the ribs were burnt, with no bbq sauce on them, and the "extra bbq" sauce they supply is about enough to cover a grape. The fries were brown and greasy and I was pissed when I had to shell out 13$ for this plate. Overall, the food was not good, it wasn't what I expected and it definitely was not worth it.

Wow, where do i start, okay, i went to this spot on , 5/25 - Memorial Day Monday, and will definetely go back! I went with my kids, 5 yo, 11 yo and my hubbie for dinner. First the positives: We had the wings (both bbq and the Sampson style, both delicious, i prefer the sampson, but they were huge and well seasoned, the fries were perfect, came out crunchy, fresh greens on our burgers, and chicken sandwiches. One of my daughters had the bbq chicken sandwich, i had the fried chicken breast sandwich, yummy. My husband and other daughter had the burger (real ground meat 1/2 pound pattie) The iced tea (brewed sweet tea) was really good. The music and atmosphere was friendly, casual, and welcoming (waitress greeted us with a smile) and service was great. (the owner/chef told us thanks and good night on our way out) Okay here are the negatives: There is no bathroom, luckily my five year old did not have to go during our stay, the sodas (sprites) were in tiny bottles for the price, they were out of desserts by 9pm (baked fresh daily - it was memorial day after all). The other downside is that they are cash only, do not accept cards, so its important to know this before your visit... Otherwise, will def return to this little gem. Soon as we got there, we were seated right away, As we dined, several people came in, were unable to get a table, yet the staff took orders and offerred to deliver (very friendly) - will recommend to future diners.

Had dinner here last night with a friend. He had the rib dinner I had the fried chicken dinner. Both were excellent, as were the sides, fries and collards for him and cole slaw and collards for me. The place is tiny and if you need a bathroom you must go to the bar across the street. However, they have just obtained their beer license so cold brews are now available. The place is super casual, but the barbecue is among the best in the city. The waitresses are friendly, funny and very efficient. It's a t-shirt and jeans kind of joint. If you're looking for upscale ambiance, decor and fine dining--this is not the place for you. The ribs are dry rubbed--no sauce necessary tho' it's available--and the fried chicken is tasty, crispy and moist. The collard greens are the best I've ever had outside of Mississippi. If you're interested in excellent southern eatin'--Georgia's is a must visit.

I would rather have a smaller bottle soda made with cane sugar than a big can of corn syrup any day. the taste is far superior and we are only talking about a few ounces difference. I enjoy a frosty cold small coke just like from the vending machines where you pull the bottle out of the front. hey had them all over arkansas where I grew up. It reminds me of being a kid.
