Barberitos assuages stubborn hunger pangs with a zesty mixture of fresh, made-to-order Southwestern fare. A popular option on the diverse menu, the Heavy D burrito tests tortilla strength with portions of rice, beans, meat, cheese, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, and lettuce ($6.79). Because meals, like pacemakers, can be fun to put together oneself, Barberitos serves sizzling fajitas that moisten mouths with a platter of meat, three taco shells, and tasty toppings ready for assembly ($8.99–$9.99). On Fridays only, jerk fish tacos prove they're actually quite nice with a medley of grilled tilapia, cheese, guacamole, cilantro, and lime ($3.59). Meat dodgers can indulge in vegetarian options such as the vegetarian quesadilla, a grilled 10-inch tortilla filled with cheese and beans or a choice of vegetables ($5.39). Festive colors accent the cantina's interior, matching the zest of the culinary treats found within its lively confines.

After several years in the corporate world, Shane's Rib Shack's founder, Shane Thompson, exchanged his necktie for an apron slathered in barbecue sauce. The decision came after reflecting on his grandfather's advice to follow his heart. Along with this guidance, Dewey "Big Dad" Brown shared his secret barbecue-sauce recipe, which now cloaks beef, chicken, and pork at Shane's Rib Shack restaurants across the country. At each eatery, cooks slowly smoke meats and chop them by hand to craft dishes that have been featured on Better Morning Atlanta. Catering services tote supplies to parties, company picnics, and attempts to prove how flimsy a rival carpenter’s tables are.

Since 1976, Old Brick Pit Barbeque has lured diners in with the aroma of its old-school Georgia barbecue sauce, which can be delectably doused on a menu's worth of tender meats. Hickory wood and a brick pit conspire to slow-smoke succulent pork for 12–14 hours while serenading it with old Barry White hits before it's slathered in house-made vinegar-based sauce and placed between bread. Sides of coleslaw, like pranks destined for an ornery teacher, are lovingly concocted every day, and they add a cabbage-packed punch to savory pork packages.

The mouthwatering menu at Smokey Bones stars a succulent spread of barbecued bliss, including hand-pulled pork that is hickory smoked for 11 hours each night ($10.99/platter) and a slow-smoked beef brisket that marinates for up to an entire day ($11.99/platter). Begin edible explorations with a sauce-proof map and a slice of skillet cornbread spread with honey-pecan butter ($5.99) before climbing a high-piled plate of smokehouse chicken––a fire-grilled, double chicken breast doused in bourbon-barbecue sauce with melted cheddar-jack cheese, peppered bacon slices, and crispy onion straws ($8.99). Like a forgetful butcher, the stacked baked potato uncovers meat in unlikely places, pilling pulled pork or beef brisket atop a loaded baked potato ($7.79), and baby-back ribs are fire-grilled to order and topped with a choice of brown-sugar glaze, original sauce, or Memphis-style dry rub ($17.99/half-rack, $20.98/whole).
