Finding good barbecue is like a sport sometimes. You have to get out there and do a little work to find it. Well, look no further than Community Q in Decatur and score a barbecue touchdown!
Whether you want brisket (sliced) or pork (ribs and pulled), Community Q will satisfy. The sides are also delicious. I personally go for the macaroni and cheese as well as the greens. They also have a rub for sale, which I must say, is really good and has found its way onto a lot of the dishes I have made recently. If you do much barbecuing at home and are looking for rubs to try, this “butt rub” is exceptional.
Growing up in Atlanta, it has always been tough to find a Po’boy worthy of some of the ones I’ve had in New Orleans and other gulf areas. Introducing the Crawfish Po’boy from The Crawfish Shack. This particular sandwich will transport you to the French Quarter without having to go there. Plenty of crawfish and delicious roumalade make this one a classic for me.

Another one of my personal all time favorites is the softshell crab plate. Why did I not know about softshell crab for so long? That’s another conversation, but I am making up for lost time now.
With great seafood and a great price, Crawfish Shack is one of my goto spots.
Its October, and that means October fest’s. In Helen, Ga, the Oktoberfest is among the best in the area. When you go there, you have to try the German food at the Troll., located under the bridge along the Chattahoochee river. I am a big fan of the Reuben sandwich, so naturally, I had to try one. With the melted cheese and corned beef on rye, what a great flavor combination. Delicious!
When it comes to Burgers, some are better than others. If you don’t want to figure out who’s is best on your own, let me help. The folks down at FLIP are your friends. They have several selections that will make your day. I opted for the bacon cheeseburger(of course), and it was marvelous.
