Sweet Auburn BBQ

Georgia State University

The Sweet Auburn Curb Market is great – a real old-fashioned market with everything you might need. And then there are all of these wonderful food stalls – lots of variety. Worth a stop not only for the BBQ but for fresh bread or cookies, ice cream, arepas, falafel, huge bags of collards, sausage, etc., etc.

Vegetarian Tips
There are a number of sides and we confirmed that the majority of them are cooked without meat, so probably enough to keep most vegetarians happy. Of particular note are Mac & Cheese “ "French style with Bechamel sauce, butter and more cheese than is legal in some states and Spicy Jamaican Collards - spiced up with Jamaican Jerk, cinnamon, scotch bonnet peppers, roast garlic to give your mouth the Yowza! factor it deserves.
Type of Sauce
Tomato-based Two, both tomato-based, Kansas City style and quite good -- one sweet and smoky, the other spicy.
Alcohol Served
Soft drinks only
Recomended BBQ
Pulled pork - though it was all good.
Recomended Sides:
Slaw Brunswick stew Mac and cheese Greens The Brunswick Stew might be the best we've found so far.
