1. Das BBQ
As with any Texas brisket, the meat at Das BBQ is never frozen and always slow-smoked to perfection. One person who moved from Texas to Atlanta wrote that this is the best Texas BBQ since moving to Atlanta. You can’t ask for more than a glowing review from a Texan.
2. City Barbeque
City Barbecue is another one of the Texas brisket makers in Atlanta. They are not just making it, they are winning awards for it including best brisket.

Although there are many good reviews for Daddy D’z, I think the most important went judging Texas brisket are those from people who are actually from Texas. According to them, the brisket was moist and tender and deserved 5 stars. Coming from those who know what good Texas brisket should taste like, this is an honor. This is a place worth trying.
6. Wood’s Chapel BBQ

7. Fox Brothers Bar-B-Que Que-osk
Fox Brothers Bar-B-Que Que-osk is an addition to the Fox Brothers Bar-B-Que family. They serve a pared-down menu from their main restaurant. Just as good, and loved just as much as the original. The only difference is they are only open for lunch. If you are looking for a great fast option for your lunch, then head over and enjoy Texas-style BBQ at it’s best.
8. The Greater Good BBQ
Fast and friendly service is what you get here. The food? Well if you are looking for “Texas Style brisket, you have found your place in Atlanta”. Voted Top 30 of Best BBQ In America – Thrillist.

Their family recopies are what inspired them to open up The Greater Good, and from what I can tell, it was a great decision.
9. Heirloom Market BBQ
Described as Texas brisket with a twist, and that twist is Korean sauce. Even without the sauce, the brisket is said to be some of the best customers have ever eaten. With the ide of paying respect to iconic barbeque, the owners and chefs wanted to bring to its customers “the things we eat on our days off.” Well from what I can gather, they eat well when not cooking for their customers.

Texas-born twin brothers who relocated to Atlanta missed the traditional Texas barbeque they grew up with and decided to bring it to Atlanta. They have been featured in several magazines and television shows such as diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, so you know they must be good. They are also the official Barbeque of the Atlanta Falcons. Need I say more?
