Smokey Stallion BBQ

$$$$

309 nelson street , Atlanta

Colorful NFL quarterback Cam Newton and brother C.J. opened this Castleberry Hills barbecue spot as a place for sports fans to congregate on game days and for hungry folks to gather just about every day. For the sports fans, the tone is set with ESPN-glued TVs, a full bar, and a generally festive energy. And for the latter, Smokey Stallion scores big with tender rib tips, turkey legs, and ranch-sprinkled Dirty Bird wings.
