Sweet Auburn Barbecue
Perfect For:Impressing Out of TownersCasual Weeknight Dinner
Walk into this Virginia-Highlands favorite and you see all the familiar comforts: wood planks on the wall, bourbon bottles on the shelves and UGA football on the TV. It feels like home. And while you’ll spot traditional terms such as “pulled pork” and “smoked brisket” on the menu, know that these dishes will be presented in fun, untypical ways. (See: brisket egg rolls.) That’s because Sweet Auburn BBQ owners Anita and Howard Hsu do their ‘cue with an Asian spin. That those items, as well as other standouts like the spicy Szechuan lemon pepper wings, taste as good as they sound is a delicious bonus.
