Fox Brothers Barbecue

While my wife was in Atlanta recently, she had lunch at a barbecue place called Fox Brothers Barbecue. She texted me to rave about how amazing it was, so I checked out their menu online and was intrigued. She said she’d be willing to go back next time we were in the city. Two days later, here we are.

We split all the appetizers and desserts between the two of us, and ordered our own entrées. The first appetizer was a repeat from last time, and was definitely worth the second try. It was Canoe’s House Smoked Salmon on a crispy potato cake with Vermont goat’s cheese. Continue reading Canoe: Part 1
