Hudson’s Hickory House
Hudson’s Hickory House, 6874 Broad St, Douglasville, GA 30134 770-942-4828
I don’t know how long Hudson’s Hickory House has been in business, but I know that when my Mom and Dad moved to Douglasville, Georgia in 1963, they were selling barbecue by the pound. Mama would go there on Friday nights sometimes and get a couple of pounds of chopped pork and some of those greasy fries, and all of us kids would be licking our lips over them. My favorite thing to get here is the rib plate. And always with a giant glass of iced tea.
When my children were growing up, I did the same thing–chopped pork and fries, and we made sandwiches at home. Fabgrandpa and I eat there every time we find ourselves in Douglasville around dinner time. Yum!
Wallace’s Barbecue 3035 Veterans Memorial Highway Austell, Georgia 30168 Phone: (770) 739-1686
Every time I am near Austell, I try to go eat at Wallace Barbecue. They have been in business since 1966, and have some of the best barbecue in the area. My favorite thing to get there is either a pig stuffed baked potato, or a pig salad, made with chopped pork. They have delicious hand cut french fries, too. I used to go to this place for lunch when I worked on Thornton Road for Bellsouth. I also love their thin vinegary sauce. Another yum place!
Bilbo’s Barbecue 769 Atlantic Avenue, Bremen, GA 30110 770-537-4180
Bilbo’s Barbecue is located closer to us, in Bremen near the intersection of Hwy 78 and Hwy 27. We stop in there sometimes on the way home from Wal-Mart or my doctor’s office. They have some good chopped pork, ribs, and the cheesy pork french fries are enough for a meal all by themselves.
Turn Around Barbecue
Turn Around Barbecue 2390 Hwy 78, Tallapoosa, GA 30176 770-574-9966
We go to Turn Around Barbecue about twice a week for breakfast, but sometimes when we are there closer to lunch time, I have the barbecue rib plate. Their ribs are fall off the bone tender, and juicy, and delicious. Surprisingly , I don’t have any pictures from Turn Around, but Marie Let’s Eat has some good ones on their blog review. They are open on Friday nights now. If you are in town around lunch time, try them out. In additon to barbecue, they have some pretty dang good fried catfish, and a meat three veggies menu that changes every day.
So there ya go, some of my favorite barbecue places. What are your favorites? Do you like the chain barbecue places or the mom and pop owned ones? What is your favorite barbecue dish?
