Barbecue brings people together. Friends and family gather at the table to eat, laugh, and talk while enjoying pulled pork, ribs, brisket, chicken and delicious side dishes. But for some families, barbecue is more than just a great meal. Dave Poe of Marietta, GA embodies the idea of barbecue as a way of life. Dave's family has been in the barbecue business for many years. Dave got his start in barbecue with his father, catering and competing around the state with Stump and Sons BBQ. Atlanta magazine recently recognized Dave Poe's BBQ as some of the best barbecue in the city and the best cole slaw overall.
The accolades in Atlanta magazine are just a friendly reminder of the quality barbecue served on a daily basis at Dave Poe's. Over the past few years, Dave has earned glowing reviews from the Atlanta Journal Constitution and a devoted word-of-mouth following that keeps his restaurant packed for every lunch and dinner. I recently stopped by to visit my best friend and mentor to grab a bite and some photos to share with each of you to remind you why you should make it a point to stop by and enjoy some of the fantastic food available at Dave Poe's BBQ.
