Pulled pork is about as good as you’ll find anywhere, and the ribs are worthy menu adversaries as well.

The one item that stood out to me when Coggin first opened D.B.A is still on the menu, a side of roasted, creamy grilled Texas creamed corn, studded with little bits of bacon.

A very oven-warm white cheese honey butter corn muffin might possibly be among the single greatest bites I’ve eaten all year. Something about it was so perfectly moist, so warm and so comforting to the soul. A single bite that proves to me this food is prepared by someone who is passionate, someone who cares, someone who loves food.

D.B.A Barbecue has come a long way over the past 5 years or so serving some of the best barbecue in Atlanta. And now that I’ve become a fan, I can’t wait to see where Coggin will take this place over the next 5 years.
