BBQ is our Business

Barbecue. Barbeque. Bar-B-Que. BBQ. Or ‘Que.

No matter how you spell it, we can all agree that BBQ is a way of life. BBQ is in you. There as many styles of BBQ as there spellings. We believe that using the best cuts of meat and poultry and taking the time so slowly smoke with sweet hickory is the way to do it. Although we carry classic BBQ favorites like pulled pork, St. Louis Ribs, Brisket, chicken, and wings. With that being said, we make the best House-cured Pastrami you have ever eaten. It takes over two weeks to make this meat candy.  It is worth it.

Anyone looking for good times and great southern fare in Virginia-Highland will tell you, D.B.A. Barbecue is the place to go. You can expect to see your neighbors, friends and colleagues hanging out after work, and enjoying great BBQ, Burgers, and full bar that includes 18 taps of locally-crafted beer.

Welcome to D.B.A. Barbecue!

Giving Back to our Community

Few things make us happier than seeing the smile on a customer’s face when they take that first bite of our house-cured pastrami or dig into a mac-n-cheese topped, pulled pork sandwich (known as the Archie Bunker), but supporting the community that supports us is one of them.

Which is why we only pour draft beers from small Southern breweries. We support Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, the Steve Hightower Thriving Children Gala, PTAs, local schools, and afterschool programs. And we can’t forget Sean Costello, a local musician, whose name is painted on our wall of musicians. In his memory, we support the Sean Costello Fund for Bipolar Research.

From the causes that are important to us, our staff, and our customers, we take supporting our community seriously.
