THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bulluck's Best Bar-B-Q Restaurant Review

: The guys at Ft. Gillem right across the street have a real treasure just outside the post gate. Bulluck's does Eastern Carolina-style barbecue, which denotes a vinegar-based sauce and coleslaw on top. Rosetta Bulluck cooks all meats slowly over hickory, and believes in seasoning her meat 24 hours before cooking it for 10-12 hours. The standard sauce here is tomato-based for my Georgia customers, she says. Reserve this for dipping these gorgeous ribs---and they're the item to target---though they hardly need any of it, as they're smoky, tasty, firm but tender, and showing the proper pinkness indicating the meat was cooked over wood. Side dishes include homemade potato salad and slaw. Don't pass up the desserts, which are homemade and plenty worth the calories, especially the nearly-never-seen-these-days egg pie. But it's hard to decide between the fresh fruit cobblers, the red velvet cake, or the sweet potato pie. She bases her Brunswick stew on her Georgia grandmother's recipe, and even uses a wash pot, which was the traditional vessel for cooking this traditional dish. Hush puppies are available for Carolina advocates. Bulluck says she can ship all over the world. Sometimes this location closes for vacation in July. Another location has opened at 6610 Spalding Dr., at Peachtree Pkwy., Norcross, 770-662-0701.
