David Hochbaum Says

One of the regulars from the bar where I work in, had this big black dog named Georgia. Georgia's Barbeque is named after his dog. He mentioned that he had opened a place up, and my roommate Marcus went there and was like, 'You gotta have this barbeque. We gotta set something up.' So we got a bunch of friends together, and we all went to sample. The fried chicken was ridiculous—super succulent and crispy perfect. I used to always go to Mama's for fried chicken, now it's way too greasy for me—Georgia's is the place. And the ribs—I'm not a big beef eater, but they were so damn good. And then the crabs–piles and piles of crabs on the table, old school style, cracking and the mess everywhere and you're covered in old bay seasoning. Really, really good barbeque. Good hearty stuff. And they hook it up, their portions are really sweet and you get a bunch of sides: good cole slaw, beans, collard greens, amd string beans and garlic which is really really good. It's a tiny spot, there's about 5-6 tables, so I would imagine that it could get packed pretty quick. He's been doing really well, getting a lot of attention. I don't know if it's going to work for, or against him. But I think it's one of those places that is getting that kind of attention cause it's that good.

  1. I’m in New York for a week on tour and someone told us about this place, we went and had dinner there, it’s the best place I’ve eaten at over here, we ordered in some fried chicken from there about two days later and then went back again for lunch, I love this this place, I’ll be dreaming about eating that food when I’m back in Australia.

  2. I read some of the posts and I think it is a great site. Are you paying attention to my rigid ambition Fresh joke! What is the difference between a prizefighter and a man with a cold? One knows his blows, and the other blows his nose!
